Re: out of curiousity

The thing is, with positions like that you actually do stand the chance of ending up in office with maybe a couple dozen votes.

I guess the question is do you really want to be in office or is this a way of making a statement about the system, and if so, what statment is it?

Or is it strictly a joke (which is also a statement), in which case what would you do if you did end up as some minor official?

Re: out of curiousity

oh... I see what you mean. No, not a joke. I'd totally love to actually be elected to be a city councilman, or a member of the state general assembly or something like that. I've actually considered going for city office before, believe it or not, but I actually COULDN'T win, even with a couple dozen votes. This area has enough voters who simply check the "vote for all democrats" button that whoever is running for that office (in this case, Harry Bradshaw) would almost certainly beat me even if the people voting for him had no idea who he was.

I suppose I could join the Democrats and try to get the unopposed nomination, but that's specifically what I am opposing int he first place, and that'd kind of be a compromising of principal.
