Well, Scott, voting is more than many people do. Is just showing up to a demonstration (Seattle, D.C.) showing ones dissatisfaction with the status quo that much more important than casting a ballot for a third party? It sends a message, however small, to the powers that be. Anarchism, like enviromentalism or antiracism, begins in the home, as you rightly point out. But it does no good for mankind to end it there. If anyone feels that voting for Nader (or whoever) is somehow contributing in some small way to the betterment of society than who are we to say otherwise. As has been pointed out by ChuckO et al, it is probably high time to smash windows, but don't dismiss others for their attempt to change things through other means.
