08:28 – I’m still debating with myself whether to bother to vote Tuesday. If I do, it would be either to cast a meaningless vote for Johnson, whom I’d actually like to see elected, or an ultimately equally meaningless vote for Romney, whom I detest only slightly less than I detest Obama. When you consider that I have very little confidence that the votes will be counted honestly, that makes my vote meaningless squared.

10:35 – Barbara just told me that she’s not going to bother to vote this year. She said last time she voted that that was the final time she’d vote, and she’s not changed her mind. So I’m going to join her in not voting. As OFD has said, I’m afraid that the time is fast approaching when bullets will replace ballots. Fortunately, I come down solidly on the better-armed side.

10:37 – It occurs to me that we need a yard sign: None of the Above.
