Go Ahead & Tell Me How It’s Different From Staying Home. You KNOW You Want To

Posted on February 17, 2014 8:00 pm

New Hampshire is considering a bill that would add the option of choosing “none of the above” on its election ballots.

Local incumbents say they’ll support the measure as long as it’s printed at the top of the list.

    you get the supercool “i voted” sticker.

    you get to leave work to vote.

    you can feel all rebellious.

    you get to talk to all the people electioneering you 4 ft beyond the legal minimum.

    did i mention the sticker?

    You get to send a message that all the candidates suck.

    I love the idea. I think Louisiana did it a few years ago. If no one wins you have a new election and none of those on the original ballot can run again. Brilliant.

    If they did it in Massachusetts and put a big D after it, none of the above would win by a mile.

    I would support the measure if the law stated that if ‘None of the Above’ wins, the election is re-held and no candidate from the previous race was permitted to run. U

    Although I think a whistleblower will probably reveal that this is a plot by suicide hotlines to drum up business by subjecting people to a couple more months of political adds and robo-callers.

    My husband Ollie told me that my name might begin appearing on the ballot. I am so flattered that you folks would want me to run against those vile, hippie liberals and the few remaining Perotistas who might still want to play political prairie dog. If nominated, I promise to run on a platform of minimal government, howitzers for home defense, and low taxes on local breweries and distilleries, while re-criminalizing wanton cannabis possession and use by indolent slackers. Furthermore, rum, sodomy, and the lash may have been recreational hobbies for previous administrations, but not in mine. Hillary can ride her old broom out of town, because, if elected I’ll bring a new one to sweep up the mess left behind. Bibi Netanyahu, the Pope, and the Dalai Lama will be welcome to walk in my front door. In my administration the Marines will be tasked to kill people if necessary, not carry umbrellas when it rains. I will have Seal Team 6 bring me the heads of Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein, and, after they’ve been embalmed and encased in airtight plastic cubes by specialists at the Smithsonian, used as paperweights on the corners of my desk in order to send an unequivocal message that America’s brief digression into cowardice is at an end, and that anyone considering themselves an enemy of this nation will wind up in our trophy case.

    So remember to vote for Nona D’Abov come 2016!

    Oh and think of the joy of making your carbon footprint bigger just to say none of the above.

    @c64wood – I guess Friedman never read Chomsky.

    It might have been better if Chomsky had read Friedman and Adam Smith.
    As Ronald the Great once said, “A communist is someone who reads Marx. And anti-Communist is someone who understands Marx.”
