The protest vote is no longer throwing your vote to the greens or the libertarians. It's not voting for the other guy. It's no longer staying home. Hell, you don't even need to be registered to vote. The protest vote is now the riot. And if you can get enough rioters, that's your vote. No more voting with your feet. People will be voting with their fists. Passivity is over.

@neauoire the issue I see with this is that it's a vote against something, not for something. Protests are good for things that should be baseline and simple concepts, but you can't operate complex systemic changes through protests only. I agree and support the protests, but I don't have much optimism on the actual outcomes.
