First off: There's not going to be a strip on Friday, I'm sorry to say. Unavoidable outage.
If you are an U.S. citizen and you see this before polls close on November 4: please vote – if only to be able to pout about the election results for the next four years.
If you remove yourself from the political process by not voting, it doesn't matter what you think of it. Your opinions may be extremely well thought-out, but they still won't matter. At all. Voting at least legitimizes you to moan about the state of things.
