“The time has come,” the Walrus said, “To talk of many things: Of shoes – and ships and sealing-wax – Of cabbages–and kings – And why the sea is boiling hot – And whether pigs have wings.” (Lewis Carroll)

I’d like to announce that indeed, in 2016, pigs do have wings and can fly. I know this must be so, because I told someone months ago that I would only vote for Donald J. Trump, when pigs fly.

On Tuesday, November 8, 2016, at approximately 0700 EST, the Common Constitutionalist will enter my local polling facility, on the back of a flying pig, and cast my vote for the Trumpster.

To my regular readers and listeners, this will come as a surprise, as I have said repeatedly, that I will no longer vote for someone just to vote against the other candidate – even if the other candidate is the most corrupt individual ever to seek high office – bar none.

Many have said that our choice was a binary one and that I/we must choose the lesser of two evils. Fine, I would reply – but the lesser of two is still evil. There is always a third option and that is none of the above. If Trump wanted my vote he would have to earn it – give me a reason to vote FOR him, other than he is not Hillary. He had not done that. read more
