Election Day 2010: This Time It’s “All of the Above”
I guess this post will constitute a one-day span of campaigning. But it needs to be said for the record, given that in the last election I voted for “none of the above”. This time, I will proudly vote Republican 100% all the way down the ballot.
I will be proud not because Republican politicians, as a whole, have suddenly become admirable members of society. Rather, it’s because the proponents of smaller government and individual rights tend either to be Republicans or to attach themselves to the “Republican cause” (whether such a thing exists). Most importantly, it’s because there is only one reasonable message for Republicans or anyone else to infer from my vote: that I want a reduction in taxes, a reduction in government spending, a repeal of Obamacare, and if anyone really wants to make me happy, a self-inflicted gunshot to the head. The firing of a random staff member would also do.
If we want a true takeover of the Federal Government, we should do what the management of any acquiring company would do if they wanted to cut costs in a hurry: they’d tell every goddamn department manager to cut his budget by X% and cut his staff by Y%. Government should do the same. But now I’m just getting excited. I’m even voting for Carl Paladino, for fuck’s sake.
Bring on the bloodbath!
