Selections as as Political Narcotic

What if they held another sham election and nobody showed? would it really even make a difference? It seems the selection process is increasingly pre-scripted or maybe in their contempt of the public, the ruling class isn't bothering to cover the pretense as well. No matter what happens, it looks like the swine have chosen Clinton vs Giuliani for their next show horse race and locked anyone else out. Increasingly the whole process is has come to serve as a Narcotic to created the illusion of consent. If that is how it is going to run, rather that arguing over the "lesser of evils" why don't we opt out in mass by casting blank ballots, it's not like the vote-counting isn't rigged anyway. My guess is that whoever the pre-scripted "winner" is, it'll be a "mandate" even if 10% or less of the electorate show. The difference is, we will know beyond doubt that it is illegitimate.
