A short and mostly non-partisan political reminder:

We are a week from election day.

Remember, when you prepare to go to the polls, that each election cycle in which you convince yourself — or let others convince you — that you have to hold your nose and vote for the lesser of two evils because third parties and independent candidates have no chance of being elected, is one more election cycle in which third parties and independent candidates have no chance of being elected.  Because you, and everyone else who held their nose and voted for the lesser evil, wouldn't vote for them, even though you wished you could.

You want it to EVER change?


If not you, then who?

If not now, then when?
