The Purpose of Elections

We elect government officials to referee a game; they have come to believe this means they own the teams, the stadiums, and the sport. - Allan Wallace

Obama and McCain are the same vile liquid, just in different bottles. Obama will be elected (unless something unexpected happens) because he is more charming; voting for either is wasting your vote. Make your vote irritate the lesser of two evils, vote third party.

If enough of us vote third party - maybe we will really get some change.

A vote for the lesser of two evils is still a vote for evil.

Vote Third Party!
any third party

On another note, I wrote this at the BFU college blog, but it probably applies here also.

As you've seen in recent post I keep writing more and more on Squidoo, and less and less here.

Squidoo has more tools than a blog, and each entry grows in readership over time, instead of disappearing into the archives. I've tried various archiving methods on other blogs, but with few exceptions, older post just sit there unread. If you want to try Squidoo too, there will be a link on my "lens."

It does take more time to build a quality Squidoo page, but over time readership increases. It is fairly easy to find and improve what I've written, something that rarely happens to these journal posts.

Here is the new style I'm going to test for a while. I have a Squidoo lens that lists what I've written there. At the top of the page I will list my most recent pages, the others will be grouped by category. If you want to treat it like a blog, just look at the most recent entries.

If you find something interesting, say about education, scroll down to the education module and find more on the subject. I will be playing with the format - over the next few months it may change occasionally.

Go take a look, the page is (currently) titled:
