posticon Megatron 2016


On this upcoming election day, I strongly urge all of you to write-in Megatron of Tarn when casting your ballot for President of the United States.

I've been supporting via a bumper sticker for the past couple of months;

Well, there are a couple others running, but because some people are so damned convinced it has to be option A or B, they refuse to acknowledge other letters of the alphabet. Because, if people vote third party, instead of the one they want, then the one they don't want will win.

But I don't vote, so what do I know?

Besides, even if we vote Megatron, you know the Electoral College will just ignore it and cast it in favor of Shockwave or something.

Re: Megatron 2016


Given you guys use a 'most votes wins' system, not the 51% approach we use, is spreading votes out safe when there's someone like Zapp Branigans dumber cousin drawing attention? Or is that the actual logic some are using to encourage voting for one of the loudmouths? Honestly curious.

3rd Party votes are looked upon as "wasted", depending on who you talk to. It's pretty much always been Democrat and Republican here, that's where the money (and thus the heavy campaigning and media attention) lies, to the point that other options are barely entertained at best. In the comments of some Daily Show Facebook posts, I've even pointed out how both big party candidates are equally poor choices, and was rebuffed with how "useless" voting 3rd Party would be, and could result in President Cantaloupe-Face, and that would be terrible. Not like electing someone who's candidacy is based in fraud and has shown criminal negligence...which I found disappointing, because TDS could be capable of changing that, but would rather just nudge people towards Hillary for whatever reasons.

Pretty much, everyone who says that one of the two is the only choice...there's someone saying the equal but opposite thing, in favor of whoever is pandering to them. I can understand the mentality, but given who we have to choose from between the two main parties...we're screwed either way. And while I'm far from a Saint, I can't bring myself to vote for someone I know is going to make things worse in one fashion or another. Either of the two main candidates will screw things up, just in different ways. I mean, that South Park "Douche vs. Turd" voting episode has always been applicable, but feels extra true lately.

...

Shoot, we should write-in Megatron. Then there's a chance the State of the Union would be given by Frank Welker. Don't tell me that wouldn't make you WANT to watch it for a change!

Re: Megatron 2016


The problem with third parties really comes down to the president requiring a majority of electoral votes. As long as it requires a majority, and not just a plurality, we're pretty much stuck with two parties. If there were 3 serious contenders, then you likely won't get 51% for any of them, and the House elects the president. And who wants to see that ever happen? Not I.

So it may come down to a giant douche and a !@#$ sandwich, but that's how it was set up, so that's how it is.
