    You don't vote with a ballot, electors do that. Instead we vote with our dollar, by not supporting deletrious companies and products! 

    Howard Beale explains it best.

    "The world is a college of corporations
    Inexorably determined by the immutable bylaws of business
    The world is a business
    And I have chosen you to preach this evangel"

    What you buy, or rather don't buy, is critical to the process.

    It's a no brainer really, once you realize plastic is deleterious at best and has no real positives.

    A green plastic watering can
    For a fake Chinese rubber plant
    In a fake plastic Earth
    That she bought from a rubber man
    In a town full of rubber men
