Vote None of the Above!

Brewster's MillionsI’ve always wondered since I saw Richard Pryor in the underrated ’80s comedy classic, Brewster’s Millions, why voting for no one on the ballot isn’t a viable option in U.S. elections.

Well, turns out that the state of Nevada has this option, so it will be interesting to see the outcome there given the strong disapproval ratings for both Harry Reid and the ethnically-confused Sharron Angle.

For more thoughts on having an “against” option in your vote, check out this “Radical Reboot” article from Mickey Kaus on Slate.

    I live in nevada and Seems that Angle is in the Lead and people like myself will vote for Reid choosing the lesser of 2 evils. its funny however Reid’s son is running for Govner and is getting his ass handed to him.

    None of those versions of voting “none” is going far enough. What we need is a “none” that makes sure that for a full term NO ONE fills that office. Put that and a write-in blank and you’re one step closer to actual democracy, not to mention giving anarchists a reason to vote.
