1. I've never been convinced that non-voting was a political statement until now
For the first time in my life, I don't think I will be participating in the Democratic presidential primary. Its a complete sham. I won't be voting "uncommitted" or for Kucinich when the vote won't count. When there is no possibility of exercising "voice," "exit" seems like more of a statement to me.

It's probably always been a sham, but at least they made some pretense of my vote counting in the past.
