    Those who vote have the right to gripe. Those who are too lazy to get off their butts and vote deserve what they get.

    Not voting might be a conscious choice, not a lazy one, for some.

    Civil disobedience is another phrase you might want to consider googling. A false choice is a false choice.

    It still means you can't gripe if the person you did not like win because people voted for him.

    I think he would be a useful candidate, but the Bush-name baggage is going to be a serious problem for conservatives and the media play. I disagree with the man on a number of issues, but I am not altogether opposed.
