And we've been voting the lesser of two evils since the inception of the Federal Reserve. Abolish The Fed.

I grew tired of voting for the lesser of two evils after voting for George H W Bush in 88. Libertarian party ever since except for Senator Ted Cruz. Let's stand with Rand and beat Hillary in 2016

That pretty much sums up the choices.

Patrick Henry, Red Hill

It is the lamentable lot of Fallen Man to commonly find himself being virtually compelled to opt for what is, seemingly, the lesser of two evils.

Tragically, those who found themselves existing in states of abject subjection to Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro et al., ad nauseum, were shorn of even that miserable privilege.

Democracy is a con if forced to choose only from the 'approved' choices.  The assumption that all must accept one of these choices is also a corruption.  What about ALL the other possibilities not even brought to the table?  Why are we to believe that people are either on the right or the left?  Why not front, back, top and bottom  what about absolute zero?  It is a prison of the mind designed to turn sovereigns into subjects, and to legitimize evil acts as authorized by the people.  But in reality, the consequences cannot be avoided by simply declaring them 'legal,' the Laws of Nature rule.

    To Right a wrong, such as the sacrifice of individual liberty and Freedom under despotic rule, Is the purpose of Restoring our Ship of Liberty to an Upright position. By far under New Leadership, President Trump and the current administration, this task being taken to hand, is not the lesser of two evils, but in opposition to the oppressive nature of socialism/communism, an evil in itself when found contrary to the State of Liberty and Freewill association. As the "rollback" takes place quickly, best to remember the broad overview. To what degree is yet to be seen, although, to what purpose is known. There is no lesser of two evils, only the discernment of, good and evil.
