What Election...Cycle - a Music Video

A few election cycles back I made some stickers. Then last go round I made this...music(?) video. Both the stickers and the groove are still valid in their own small way. Hope you enjoy my music video!

Lyrics:
Lyrics: What Election? Understand the corruption at the ballot box Abstain from the game like chicken pox There's no such thing as a lesser of evils They'll empty missile silos like nuclear weevils Modify the grain, remap your brain Voters ought to notice, no hope, no change Things are getting worse, everybody in the hearse Step-up to the check-out with a bug in your purse Bacon on the move, drug war blues Tax code slave state Illuminati flu Children can't play outside anymore Lemonade stands, they need permits for Can't start a business, gotta have a phone Officiate a wedding with a military drone If voting made a difference, we'd have our day But this market's rigged and so we get played What Election?

Clever, but I'm not into political nihilism. Although it's popular on social media, where I follow lots of alt-think groups into various forms of socialism, fascism, anarchy, nihilism, etc. Mostly it devolves into celebrating irony and absurdity, which I can relate to, and malaise toward the entire culture, which never helps.

Everything in life is about taking choices, and often it's the lesser of two evils. Try eating healthy far from home on a bike ride in a rural area with nothing but a Dairy Queen and a convenience store.

Declining to participate is akin to a person on a strict diet -- veganism or some other religion -- who refuses to eat anything outside his diet, but expects the group to support him until he can reach food that suits him. In a survival situation, that person is a liability -- and probably future food.

Political choices are always survival situations. Refusing to participate is akin to being next on the menu.
