It may be time for libertarians to start again on the campaign to get “None of the Above is Acceptable” on the ballot. If it were there this time, it would get a slim majority of the popular vote. If you added “and everybody concerned is barred from politics for forty years or until the Coming of the Mahdi, whichever occurs first” it would win the electoral college. And if the addition was “shoot them all and bury them in unconsecrated ground” it would carry thirty-seven States and Puerto Rico.
Those of you reading from Soonerland might recall the 2004 None of the Above campaign, which included libertarians, Greens, Constitution Party types, and others vexed with the difficulty of getting names and parties other than the Big Two on the state’s ballots.
