You don't have to vote for a Democrat or a Republican.
Mickey Mouse has gotten more votes for president than any candidate in history. That is why America Jones is running as a write-in for president with
the Mickey Maus Party. Think of it as a "no confidence" vote. Register your discontent with the two-party system. Demand to see your vote in
print after the elections, and help verify the accuracy of our voting system.
You too can run for president with the Mickey Maus Party. We don't discriminate and we make for good party conversation.
Here's my candidate's stump speech:
greetings, voters, citizens, whoever you are. as we near
our elections here in americana, i would like to take this
opportunity to remind you to vote for america jones wherever
you vote next.
in this age, when our living environment is over-saturated with media
technologies and powerful messages of conflicting values and
intentions, it is becoming harder than ever to figure out where
major-ticket candidates stand. it would seem the only remedy for
this is a greater simplicity. campaigning as a fascist candidate for
the mickey maus party, america jones has a message scientifically
calculated to appeal to the convenience-oriented sensibilities of consumers:
"vote for me once and you'll never have to vote again."
what could be more conventient than this?
of course, it would be foolish not to acknowledge that, despite the bad
rap fascism has picked up in recent years, voting for a third party candidate
is an important way to register one's discontent with the two-party
rule that seems, of late, to have jammed up our fine democracy
so profoundly by, in effect, functioning as a soviet one-party system.
if a voter should becomes apathetic and simply
choose to give up on voting, that voter's apathy becomes
defeat, and that voter's discontent remains unheard and
at the end of the day, this is the beauty of america jones:
by bringing together the apathetic with the fanatical,
america jones becomes a uniter and not a divider. america jones
represents compassionate fascism at its finest.
so remember that every time you head to the polls
confused or disenfranchised
or with a bone to pick: a vote for a fascist is a vote for
