It doesn't matter, because 100% of the elite are against it!

I have to admit, there is something magical about Joe Biden by ZeroFeetAway in conspiracy

Bingo! The first time I started figuring this out was in the Bush 2.0 election, and didn't participate in it, or any election since then. All I hear is people telling me I have a patriotic "duty" to vote. I tell them, No, I have a patriotic duty to not vote, to not play their game. bUt YoUr VoTe mAtTeRs, they tell me. I let them know that, in fact, it does not matter, and neither does theirs and that these parties are two sides of the same coin and the powers that be will install the person they want, regardless of what voters want. If that is not apparent in this election, then it never will be. I too, have said the only way to end this is to, as you mentioned, hold a national strike on voting, but we are incapable as a country to come together for any worthwhile cause, because too many people are sheep and believe whatever big tech, the media, and government tells them to believe.

I really don't understand people who dump one social media platform, and then just sign up for another one, thinking that somehow the results will be any different. Might be a bit better for a little bit, but it won't last. I offer you Parler as an example! Several friends of mine "stopped" using FB and went to Parler and asked me to. Yeah, that sounds like a great idea, what could possibly go wrong? I did the dump Facebook part, but sure as hell didn't go sign up for Parler.

Agreed! We live in a throw-away society anymore. Companies build stuff just good enough to make it through the warranty period and maybe a bit longer. Then you throw it away and buy another one. People used to get TVs fixed, quality boots and shoes resoled, appliances repaired, Not any more though, Throw it out and buy new. A big part of the blame (most of it, actually) lies with the companies that make the crap. They build it like crap on purpose, fully knowing you'll throw it away and but more, in their quest for the almighty dollar! Speaking of quality tools, I was fortunate enough to buy a nice set of Snap On tools and a top and bottom tool box (Napa, to save a few bucks) when I went to a tech school for aviation maintenance. That was 1991, and I still have all if it, and it all still works, and it is all still in great condition. 30 years old, and I'm sure it will last for another 30. They certainly don't build stuff like that anymore!

I challenge any phone junkie to turn their off for 24 hours.

Funny you should mention this. I decided four days ago (Jan 5th) to do just that. I have had my phone on only when I needed to make a call since then, and once when my wife asked me to in order to get hold of me if she needed to. I wouldn't classify myself as a phone Junkie though. I didn't do it because of apps though. I did it because I'm sick of Google tracking my life 24 hours a day. I decided enough, and keep my phone off now. It was WAY easier than I thought it was going to be. Your phone needs you more than you need it, and I decided I was going to change that. I lived just fine for 30 years without a cell phone, I think I'll do just fine again. *edited to put date in
