To Those Considering Staying Home in November out of "Principle"...

Okay, Democrats, Liberals, Progressives, Radicals, Socialists, Independents, Leftists, Centrists, Libertarians, Anarchists, Pragmatists, Pacifists, Punks, Faeries, Queers, Humanists, etc...

David Duke and Jean-Marie Le Pen have both endorsed Trump. If you stay home in November, or if you don't vote on the national line, you're supporting Duke and Le Pen, the KKK and the National Front. Your principled stance will empower nativism and fascism.

Sometimes, choosing the "lesser of two evils" is crucial. Sometimes, voting "no!" is the most important thing you can do.
