Hey volunteers – how can you support one candidate when you don’t even know about others?

Today I was approched by some Obamites (supporters of Obama) telling me that I should vote for Obama and that I need to vote for Obama.  OK, I’ve had enough, time to take off the gloves.

I told them, rather politely, that this is a public election and they have no right to tell me how to vote and by telling me how to vote they are trying to manipulate me out of my constitutional rights.  If they’d like, I can report their actions to their campaign office about this.

Next, I asked them how many candidates for president were there on our county ballot?  This is NOT a trick question.  Weeks ago I got a sample ballot and I recently voted (early).  Both insisted that there were only two candidates on the ballot – Obama and McCain.  Guess what?  WRONG!

There are THIRTEEN candidates on our ballot!

  • John McCain (REP)
  • Barak Obama (DEM)
  • Gloria La Riva (PSL)
  • Chuck Baldwin (CPF)
  • Gene Amondson (PRO)
  • Bob Barr (LBT)
  • Thomas Robert Stevens (OBJ)
  • James Harris (SWP)
  • Cynthia McKinnet (GRE)
  • Alan Keyes (AIP)
  • Ralph Nader (ECO)
  • Brian Moore (SPF)
  • Charles Jay (BTP)

Yes, that is thirteen candidates meaning that they did not know about 11, or roughly 84% of the candidates.  So then I asked them how can they tell me how to vote for one candidate when they didn’t even know about the vast majority of candidates?  Their answer horrified me.

“You shouldn’t vote for them because they’re not serious candidates and they won’t win”.


So, what you’re saying is that no one expected the Dolphins to win the Superbowl this year so they’re not a serious team?  No expected the Marlins to win the World Series so does that make them not a serious team?  It’s bad enough that you were trespassing on my property littering your pamphlets all over the place (both political campaigns are guilty of this) even after I told you that I didn’t want it all over my yard.

I honestly think it is time that the American public needs to pay attention to ALL of the candidates, we’ve had too much bullshit from Republicans and Democrats over the past several decades.  I’m shocked that no one has learned that BOTh sides don’t care about us and we really vote on who puts a prettier bow on their drivel that they spew out every 4 years.
