Have you ever gone to the polls, looked at the list of people you were going to vote for and thought to yourself;
I don't like any of these sunzabitches!!
It's times like these that I wish I was a party loyalist. With no thought beyond recognising the (R) (D) you can vote party line and walk out in mere moments. Heck, here in PA, they line them up so all you have to do is click 1 (R) or 1 (D) and not even have to look at the names.
But I just can't, I just can't.
Clinton drove me from the DNC and Bush made me flee the RNC.
I'm still a registered Rep, if you are not a member of the (R) or (D) here in PA you don't get to vote in the primaries. (nice huh. Independents had thier right to vote removed.)
So here I am, with a long list of names. All boasting they created jobs, all saying the other is lying and lost jobs. All saying they can or did lower the debt, all saying the other is lying. on and on and on andonandonandon....
Makes me not want to vote.
But I consider my right to vote a duty. But don't we also have the duty to vote for who we not just feel will do the best job, but also know?
So how do you know? answer; YA DON'T
So do you vote for the person that's not as big a jackass as the other people? answer; Yeah, ya do. (sucks, doesn't it)
So I demand the right to ANTI-VOTE!!
Imagine the endless joy of voting AGAINST some one. Think about it. You're tired of being a party hack, you don't want to vote for your guy, but you can't bring yourself to vote for the other guy or the 3rd guy. So you TAKE a vote away from the worst guy.
Most people on OS are liberals, so I will put this in a more personnal way.
Imagine the joy you would have had during the last election of literally punching in an anti-vote for McCain/Palin. I'm talking about leaning WAY back on dropping the elbow smash right down on top of him. Or did tapping Obama give you more joy?
You getting all weepy just thinking about it?
