  1. You’re reading it wrong, it means you should sharpen the edge of your ballot and make some politicians more “open minded”.
    Wink wink.
    Trepanning is the witty direction I went there that you may not have caught because I’m made of awesome wittiness!

  2. A few times I wrote in really large letters across my ballot “Ballot counters suck cock!” Figuring if you’re going to insult someone, insult the only person legally allowed to look at it. Another year, I tried to tape a picture of a woman’s bumhole onto the ballot and was going to write “this is the only asshole I would vote for” on it… but I have problems with the tape while I was at the voting booth.

    My general problem with these elections is that no one really votes for who they want, they vote against who they don’t want.

    Yeah, this is the problem with first-past-the-post systems like what we have here. We need to move to something new.

  4. I think we should design robots that will become our politicians. These robots would say things that meant something to the people in the riding they represent and say it at volume levels depending on how many people in their riding feel that way. If six people cared about something then it would say it very very softy, and if 25 000 people thought something, it would say it really really loud.
    We’d stick all these robots into a room together and let them run 24 hours a day. Oh sure, nothing would get done, they would just be shouting almost meaningless things at each other “I want lower taxes!”, “There are too many immigrants stealing my women!”, “let’s save the environment!”, “more jobs!”, “legalize pot!” etc. BUT at least you would feel that you have some sort of voice in government.
