On voting

Tibor Machan on how to waste your vote:

The notion that one must vote for someone, anyone, just to vote, never
mind that everyone running advocates bad ideas, bad policies, is
completely off the wall. That really amounts to throwing away one’s
vote--a kind of electoral littering. Better to wait for a time when
perhaps some sensible people, with sensible ideas, become candidates.

My recent policy has been to write the name "John Galt" on the ballot paper.

In 2005 I was an Election Day Worker. Tallying the votes around a huge table. I heard the immortal words;
"Who is John Galt"

mmm.. that must have been my paper.
