Our guest Terri Lee from "Boycott the 2012 Presidential Election" 
 
Whereas both major political parties have sold out to the Wall Street banks and multinational corporations with no allegiance to the Nation or the people,
 
Whereas third parties have no possibility of winning the Presidential election due to corporate control over the media and the electoral process,
 
Whereas three decades of solid efforts to reform the electoral process have been subverted by the corporate state,
 
Whereas participation in this process lends legitimacy to a system that has lost its legitimacy,
 
We hereby refuse to vote in the 2012 Presidential elections.
 
Please take note! We are only calling for a boycott of the *Presidential* election. We encourage people to register to vote, go to the polls on election day and vote for local candidates and initiatives. Our boycott of the Presidential election is not a call for apathy. It must be combined with other forms of activism and organizing to get corporations out of the political process, including fighting for a constitutional amendment abolishing "corporate personhood," a legal status conferred upon corporations by the Supreme Court, which grants them first amendment protection to pump billions of dollars into electoral campaigns.
