I'm reasonably sure that neither chucklehead on the major tickets will do 1/4 of what they promise. Cynical I know. And why would anyone be cynical about spending 100 million on a job for 400k a year? Enough of that. Now for something completely not serious. Who would you write in and why?

Zigra goes first: Terry Fator: Because the only time a politician lies is when you see his lips move, and Terry is a really good ventriloquist.

Call me gullible, but Ron Paul.

I don't agree with most of what he says, but holy hell is he consistent.

I'd prefer a guy I disagree with that's consistent over some guy that it seems that I agree with that isn't any day of the week.

I was going to say Ron Paul, but Ish convinced me to go full tilt evil... Cthulhu all the way!

Seriously though, I'm lucky that I don't have to write-in my preferred candidate. And no, I'm not voting for Romney or Obama. I'm choosing to vote FOR someone, not AGAINST the "other guy". Gary Johnson for the block.

Granted, this is only because I'm not old enough to run until 2016. Speaking of, my campaign kicks-off Wednesday, Nov 7th, 2012! biggrin.gif

What the hell people. What the hell.

Maybe it's bad to talk about politics but I don't know how you can even joke that Obama is anywhere near as bad as Romney is.

Which is fine if it were just left at write ins. People are bringing politics into it though by mentioning that Obama is anywhere near as bad as Romney.

Way to take a joke thread and get all serious, Hotara.

No one has said Obama is anywhere near as bad as Romney in this thread. Zig said he doesn't think either candidate will do a 1/4 of what they say. I said a funny quote I got from somewhere else on the internet and Bantaro said Batman. Oh and Sahn said something about voting for a third party. No one at any point said Obama is as bad as Romney.

Whatever, you have proven that mentioning politics, even as a joke, is just a terrible idea.

Yes Ish, I find the very idea of Romney being in charge of any country of power, much less the one I live in, to be an offensive and all around not funny thing. It's all good to have a thread about write in candidates but this is a thread about write in candidates because both are bad. If it had just ended with the funny and not mentioned either candidates it would have been fine. I honestly don't care what anyone thinks about Obama but any argument, idea, or notion that remotely supports Romney is something I can't help but take seriously and be against.

Since I'm now being nit-picky though, I'm going to also argue against the "choice of two lesser evils." Very few people like how politics work, that's reality. Either deal/put up with it, or actually go out and do something to change it. As is, sometimes, often times, you have to make a crappy choice between two things you may not like. If you think you are doing something morally righteous or somehow doing something out of principle by either abstaining to vote or otherwise throwing your vote away... well, to put this as least offensively as possible, you're wrong.

"Do you want to get punched in the face or punched in the arm?"
"I don't like either choices. I'm going to let you/everyone else decide."
