Yes, I know. This is never going to be a "political" blog. Then again this is not about politics but anti-politics.
The Presidential casting of every McCain vote in California is worthless. Wasted.
Let me explain. McCain will never carry California without already having enough electoral votes to gain the office with or without California. Yes, a twelveth of the electorate is irrelevant to the contest. This frees us leaners in both directions up to vote conscience and/or message.
"None of the above" has its attractions.
Green would encourage a nanny state.
Cthululu is unlikely to accept a draft.
Whointheheck is the Libertarian candidate this year? Says volumes that I don't even care.
There's an answer. Understand, he doesn't stand a chance. He is not in my opinion even qualified. And that's a pretty low bar seeing as I consider all four big ticket candidates qualified. Echoing the attached graphic, I find the 2008 candidates a case of the evil of two lessers. So, here's the answer:
Write in Ron Paul.
Okay, I just washed my hands. Call me Pontius. This is a message vote. And none of this secession stuff. California would never allow the USSA to retain nuclear capability after the split.
N.B.: Saying Kalifornia is irrelevant is not exactly correct. 20% of the money for the campaigns will most certainly come from within the State.
