Ballots and bile.

This morning, when faced with the Massachusetts 2012 Primary Ballot, there were these choices on the Ballot:

2012 Presidential Preference
Primary Ballot Order


Democratic Candidates

Barack Obama

Republican Candidates

Ron Paul
Mitt Romney
Rick Perry
Rick Santorum
Jon Huntsman
Michele Bachmann  (scratch, scratch, scratch…Sara Pa_ _ _)
Newt Gingrich

Green-Rainbow Candidates

Kent Mesplay
Jill Stein
Harley Mikkelson

Taking my first look at the ballot in the voting booth, I was surprised to discover that NO PREFERENCE was listed at the bottom (I had a Republican ballot).

This is the Sample Democratic Ballot, downloaded from the Sec. of State web page.

 

The way it works, you have to request a either a Republican or Democratic Primary Ballot at registration. Now, are you confused by the wording on the sample ballot form? At first blush, it looks like there is a method available to register dissatisfaction with the boy from Kenya. But will votes for “No Preference”  be counted? Caution: Do not vote for “No Preference”…seems to say not. But then why print that line in the first place?

Of course the answer is, the election process in Massachusetts is controlled and run by the Democrats. Lazy, stupid and two golfers short a foursome. The glorious fruits of George Soros’s Secretary of State project.

So. No.   The modern American political process does not approve of protest votes. Support one of the seven dwarfs instead of Snow White, wait for November and hope for the best.

    I voted Tuesday. Not for the guy who left us with mandated healthcare in Massachusetts though.

Leave a Reply but please keep it polite. I would regretfully delete all or part of boorish comments.
