NOTA???

On a different blog, Lady Gaura referred to Obama as an empty eggshell.

So...

With a tip of a striped hat to Dr. Seuss…inspired by LadyGaura.

I do not like an empty shell.
I do not like it very well.
I will not vote for Old War Coot.
I will not vote for Empty Suit.
I will not vote for Darth Nader.
I will not vote for Barr Vader.
I will not vote for Pastor Chuck.
I will not vote for the Green Schmuck.

The choices suck for 2008.
For four more years, freedom must wait.
But can we take four more years,
Of war and death and playing on fears?
Can we take four more years,
Of no jobs, no cash, and lots of tears?

Nothing left, no place to go.
What I’ll do, I just don’t know.
Then I look up and I see
The candidate that’s right for me.
He promises nothing, and delivers less.
No pile of crap dumped on my chest.
No funds to raise, no favors to owe.
No speeches to make, no places to go.
He’s the last place for a discouraged "vota",
That place to turn to is called, simply, NOTA!

I think that NOTA is the best.
I think he’s better than the rest.
I’ll vote for the best one I choose.
I’ll vote for NOTA–-I can’t lose!

I inspired you, huh? Hmmm, I wonder what "inspired' is code for this time?

Seriously, I do wish NOTA was always on the ballot. It would probably improve voter turnout, if they could opt to not vote for the lesser of so many evils. Then we could really hear from the moderate middle ground on initiatives and other issues.

For me, voting is an act of self-defense because it's too early to shoot the bastards. I do not believe in the concept of democracy, but I'll use it as a tool to defend myself and my family from statists.
