My goal for the 2008 Election cycle is enormous. It will take a lot of work, but I am ready to start right now. I will need a lot of help, but I think it can be done.
My goal is that Democrats and Republicans will have to scramble in 2009 onward to get ballot access. I think they should have to live by the rules they write. I want them to sweat and do the grunt work required to get on the ballot. I want to laugh in their face when they ask me to sign a petition to get them on a ballot.
Here is the plan: Try to convince people to vote for anybody besides a Republican or a Democrat. I would prefer Libertarian, but for the purpose of this exercise, a vote for any other party, an independent, or a write-in will do. Staying at home will not help lower the percentage of votes Democrats and Republicans will get.
It’s not an easy plan, but I think doing the work now will be easier than going through a John Obama or a Barack McCain presidency.
