There’s an interesting ad running on the Internet. It’s a political poll that asks you to choose between Gingrich or Romney, and says “pick one or neither.” What a good idea, and a potential solution to our continuing problem of being asked to choose between the lesser of two evils in presidential elections. We should be given a choice of “none of the above.” If a majority of the country chooses “none,” then the former Vice President could remain in office as caretaker for the next year or so, providing time for a new election that would exclude all the candidates who were bumped out by the American people.
Why not? Why should what many view as the lesser of two evils be our only real choice? Oh, and we’ve have to dump the electoral college and go with a straight vote. Which is something we probably need to do anyway.
