There are various takes on Nobody for President, and you’ll see a few in Nobody’s Links. Here’s mine: You have nobody to vote for? Fine. Walk into the polling place, take your ballot, punch nobody’s name, and turn in your empty ballot. Sound like you’re throwing your vote away? I’ve got news for you: it’s the only way to make your vote count. As long as you vote for someone who takes your vote for granted, then you’re throwing your vote away. It’s simple political arithmetic.
Now, I’m not the first person to campaign for Nobody. As far as I know, Wavy Gravy started the whole ball of wax as Nobody’s Fool way back in the seventies. It’s one of them hippy things. Yet ever since, Nobody has been garnering over fifty percent of the polls. The problem is, Nobody’s supporters ain’t voting. That’s really all I’m asking you to do. Even if you vote for Nobody, turn in your ballot!
And if three people do it! Can you imagine three people on the net, singin’ a bar of Nobody for President, and logging out? They may think it’s an organization!
And can you imagine fifty people a day? I said fifty people a day, logging in, singing a bar of Nobody for President, and logging out? Friends, they may think it’s a movement.
And that’s what it is. The Nobody for President Anti-Apathy Movement. And all you gotta do to join is to link to it from your home page.
