Please don't vote

I know it's standard practice to encourage everyone to vote on election day.

So I know it's borderline unpatriotic, but I wanted to take a moment to encourage some of my fellow Americans not to vote tomorrow.

If it doesn't bother you that the world's fisheries will be gone in a few decades 'cos, well, you don't like tuna anyway please don't vote.

If you think that it's important to preserve the right of blastocysts the size of the period at the end of this sentence to be thrown in the garbage rather than used to cure disease please don't vote.

If you're proud that your government believes it's OK to torture please don't vote.

If you think the US should invade some country every few years just on general principles please don't vote.

If your main source of information is either Fox News or your local TV news please don't vote.

If you don't believe in global warming, but do believe in the rapture. If you don't believe in survival of the fittest in biology, but do believe it in business. If you believe in doing whatever it takes to protect our children except making sure they're properly fed, clothed, educated or have a clean environment and a debt free future. If you believe anything said by the lying sack of shit currently occupying the whitehouse or any of his enablers please, please, I beg you please stay away from that voting booth tomorrow.

Please don't vote.
