I’m so sick of the election that…

Seriously. Call me Ms. Unpatriotic if you will, but I am so over the election hoopla. SO over it, in fact, that I am considering other options. A quick look at Project VoteSmart gives me a vista of the other options on the table.

Take, for instance, Preacher Gene. He’s in the Prohibition party. You know, the party that hopes to abolish all sales of alcohol? That’s him. His site, besides outlining his stance on the issue, also has some lovely oil paintings and woodcarving.

Or how about Chief Jack? As candidate for the Native American Party, he promises to protect our Southern Border with troops recently off the job from Iraq. His incendiary website (and I mean that in the nicest of ways- look at the flames!!) allows you to email the Prez from the Rez. His high school diploma hasn’t kept him from running for president…again! This is his third time- which, as they say, is a charm.

Or if you’d prefer to go red, there’s Gloria E. La Riva, of the Party for Socialism and Liberation. The Party Website has a lovely picture of the candidates and, if you dig long enough, one of Che Guevara. They suggest we end the confinement of all political prisoners and immediately end sanctions to any and all socialist nations (including- duh- Cuba). Not at the top of my political agenda, but it takes all kinds.

One of my faves, however, is Da Vid. As a member of the Light Party, promising spiritual happiness to all through “wholistic principles” (sic), their 7-point platform is quite admirable. LOVE seems to be a big part of the platform, as evidenced by the lovely graphics. The doctor himself (MD, apparently) is quite active in a number of organizations, including the Worldwide Forgiveness Aliance and the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapists Association. As a “Hermetic Qabalist”, he may be just the Rosicrucian to lead us in 2009.

I had no idea that there were so many candidates. The list on PVS is quite extensive, including several foreign-born nationals (did they miss the memo??). So I’m researching my options now. Neither Obama nor McCain is impressing me any more. And we’re all about choice here, right?

    I’m sick of it, too. So I’ve mostly decided to just pretend Obama already won already so I can stop stressing out. But then I have to make my calls for the campaign so that always reminds me. 🙂

    If you are honestly undecided, then my suggestion is always a) to think about what issues you think are most important for the country for the next four years, and see who you think is best for those and b) think about who will be the best public face of America internationally, from a PR standpoint, for what you want America to be.

    Spoken like a true campaign volunteer! I’m not undecided, just sick of the hoopla, the spin, the posturing, and the op ed. Thus the Light Party and Preacher Gene, for some levity. I don’t think there is any such thing as the undecided voter, just those who don’t like the options.
