Thought 296: Personal Presidents

My position on the latest US presidential election will come as no surprise to those who know me, either in real or in online life: we should all become our own personal presidents and elect no one to power. 

Philosopher Immanuel Kant theorised that in order to gage whether an action is moral or not, consider what would happen if everyone acted that way.

If no one voted like I do not vote, then the phoney system of 'democratic representation' would cave in and this in itself would send genuine (as opposed to alleged) ripples through the whole political and economic establishments, sending a clear message to the self-appointed and self-serving elite that the people no longer want to be controlled by masters and obey laws made by them.
