Election Day is just a few days away and we need to have a plan.
There are a number of candidates asking for your vote but are running unopposed.
This means that the so-called political parties are undermining the democratic process by not providing voters, you and me, with a choice as to who we want running things. In other words, it’s turning into a no-choice system.
(Please see our article Democracy is Dead! If you haven’t already)
Here’s the plan.
- Please get your sorry asses out to vote!
- Check the list below of candidates running unopposed in your district.
- UNLESS YOU KNOW THE UNOPPOSED CANDIDATE DO NOT CAST A VOTE FOR HIM OR HER. IF YOU DON’T HAVE A CHOICE DON’T GIVE THEM THE NUMBERS.
- If you have a choice of candidates for a particular office, please carefully consider your choice and vote for the one BEST QUALIFIED, not your friend, your brother-in-law, or your next door neighbor. If you feel you must vote out of so-called “friendship” or family loyalties, that’s not a criterion for selecting an elected official for the rest of us. Be fair.
The reason that we are asking you not to cast a vote for an unopposed candidate is because we want you to protest not having a choice by not casting a vote for the unopposed candidate(s).
If you don’t cast a vote for an unopposed candidate, you are sending a message. Here’s how:
When you go in to vote, you sign in. That gives us a total number of registered voters who got out and voted. We can compare that number to the total number of registered voters in your district overall to see how many actually got out to vote.
Now, we can take those two numbers and look at the totals for the unopposed candidates and see just how many, what percentage, of active voters protested the no-choice situation.
We’ll report that number so you can see where the community stands on no-choice elections.
We need to make our voices heard in whatever way possible to avoid becoming a second North Korea.
Bottom line: JUST DON’T CAST A VOTE FOR AN UNOPPOSED CANDIDATE.
(This doesn’t mean that the unopposed candidate won’t get into office, all it takes is ONE VOTE, most likely their own, to “win” the election.)
