@A.: Perhaps because nobody wants to hear your pompous, affluent whining?

There is the notion of the discouraged worker, who drops out of the labor market. Can I propose the concept of the discouraged voter?

For years I voted for the "lesser of two evils" in Presidential Elections. This year, I will not vote unless there is a realistic chance that NYS will go Republican. I want to and a message to the Washington and this is the only way that I can think of to send that message. Since I have started talking about my plan, friends are starting to join me.

The parties are ignoring my friends and I - affluent, well educated New Yorkers. The only people paying attention to us is the No Label movement.

Why not do a story about us?
