Nominal Me

I'm falling in love with my camera and taking photos everywhere I go. That, combined with my passions for politics, sports, religion and other things we all agree on, makes this blog persist.

I'm Undecided

As the November presidential election approaches, I'm still very uncertain as to whom I should vote for.

John Kerry has done a good job convincing me not to vote for George W. Bush, while the president has done a good job convincing me not to vote for the senator from Taxachussetts.

Ralph Nader was never really a serious option for me. So what's a guy in New York State to do? Perhaps vote third party?

Well, there aren't too many compelling options there either. Other than the trio of Bush, Kerry, and Nader, there are only two other candidates on the New York State ballot, according to their board of elections.

There's Libertarian candidate Michael Badnarik, who seems very pleased with himself for getting arrested recently. It's a sad state of affairs that one has to go to this extreme to participate in a debate.

For New Yorkers, there's only a fifth option, Roger Calero of the Socialist Workers party, who doesn't appear to have a website but did get in the news for almost getting deported. Even if by some miracle he does win the election, he cannot serve due to the fact that he was not born in the United States.

It truly is a tough year to vote.

Why don't they just put an option on the balllot for "none of the above". That way people can still vote, albeit a protest vote. If neither candidate gets over 50% of all votes including the 'nones' its a do over.

Why dont they make an option for "None of the Above?" That way your vote can be counted without having to choose an asshole.
If the 'nones' outweigh the candidate with the most, its a do-over with all new candidates.

Sorry about that. It must have been the overwhelming number of page views that my new blog has created.
