On a side note, I agree with the Op but I wouldn't vote for Cthulhu. I'd vote for Doctor Who. He can get us out of anything just like he's saved the humans so many times before. And he'd have to pick Amy Pond as VP and Rory as Secretary of State. Gosh, I could look at Amy all day.

lol, how about you have the job of my campaign manager?

Yes DrWho would be good, though so would good old Dumbledore and his army. He has great experience of back stabbing sneaky conduct from the powers in charge. Gandalf would be good also, maybe have a coalition with him and Dumbledore with Dr Who as an advisor.

Voting Cthulhu isn't about getting "our guy" into office; its about sending the message to the establishment that we're on to their game and we refuse to validate their process by voting for one of their candidates.

Then clearly you do not understand how the process works.

Voting for an invalid candidate who cannot hold office is the whole point of voting Cthulhu. We are telling them that we know that it doesn't matter who wins the election because it will still be the same insiders behind the scenes pulling the strings and continuing the same destructive policies that have been dragging this country into a debt spiral of oblivion for decades.

If by "them" you mean the septuagenarian volunteers at the polling station then you're really showing them! That's the only person who will ever see it. What happens is they look at the list of registered candidates and when they don't see a name, it just simply goes to into a bundle of ballots for that candidate, then into the counted bin. So it will simply be put into the counting bin, then those bins are collected by the state or county until the vote tally is validated. Once validated those ballots are destroyed.

Obama promised to end the Bush wars, close Guantanamo and increase taxes on the rich to pay for the debt. He accomplished none of those goals. In fact, he doubled down on the war on "terror" and is now treating the American public as if we are all potential domestic "terrorists". Obama is proof positive that voting for change will only ensure the continuance of the same tired policies.

Does anyone think that getting Romney into office will suddenly change everything for the better and lead to sunny days ahead? I think even the most die-hard Republicans know there won't be much change under Romney.

The best option in this election, in my opinion, is to send the message that we refuse to validate their corrupt system by voting for one of their puppet candidates. Don't vote for either side and vote for an invalid candidate instead.

Maybe if they realize that enough people are on to their game, they will have to make real reforms needed to keep our political system from flowing into the gutter as it has been for so many years. Either that, or maybe this will wake up enough people to take action and overthrow the corrupt political system that we are trapped in.

Either way, its a win for the people.

Except that you're late to the party and it hasn't worked so far. Mickey Mouse has historically been the top fictional character for write-in vote. However, in the 2008 election, Mickey Mouse only received 11 votes.

This is odd, because poll workers can attest to Mickey being voted for much more. The point is those votes simply don't count. It's not a protest, it's tantamount to non-participation.

Wow, that link convinced me, more than ever, that Cthulhu is the candidate to vote for in this election.
[color=#3b3b3b] Vote CTHULHU
It shows to what lengths the establishment will go to stifle the true voice of the people.

Regardless of which state you live in, voting for a write-in contender is much more complicated than scribbling whatever name you please on the dotted line at the bottom of the ballot. Thirty-five states require that a write-in candidate must submit some form of affidavit and, sometimes, a filing fee at least one month before the election. In North Carolina, these candidates must circulate a petition. Then their names are posted on a list at the polling place, though not on the official ballot. All other write-in votes are tossed.

And five states -- Hawaii, Nevada, South Dakota, Oklahoma, and South Carolina -- don't allow any Presidential write-ins, and never have.

In states where voters fill in bubbles or complete arrows with a pencil, optical scanning machines are preprogrammed to automatically "kick out" write-ins from the computer's running tabulation, says Joe Kanefield, Arizona's election director. The machine then literally spits the write-in ballots into a pile on the floor. County representatives sort through the pile later.

NO JOKE. Unregistered write-ins have to be thrown out manually.

The Ins and Outs of Write-Ins

So, sure, they may toss out my vote with the trash but, they still keep track of how many people voted in the election. When they compare how many votes for president have been cast vs the number of voters at the polls, the numbers will show the disparity and how many of our ballots have been thrown in the trash. They can't possibly try to say that ALL those voters didn't bother to vote for anyone for president.

[color=#3b3b3b]Don't settle for a lesser evil!
If enough people cast an invalid vote, the fact that they are tossing our votes will become more obvious and it will become impossible to ignore the fact that the numbers in the presidential election just don't add up.

People will begin asking questions about what happened to those missing votes and will learn just how much the system is rigged in order to suppress the true will of the people.
[color=#3b3b3b]Why vote for the lesser evil? Vote CTHULHU for president in 2012
A vote for Cthulhu is a vote to expose just how corrupted our election system has become.

Maybe you're missing it. If 98% of the population casts an invalid vote then the 2% that voted for a registered candidate decides the election. Those that get elected still get the same pay and wield the same power.

Vote for Gozer! Except... you may not know you're voting for Gozer. It's so confusing!

"Gozer the Traveler. He will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldrini, the traveler came as a large and moving Torg! Then, during the third reconciliation of the last of the McKetrick supplicants, they chose a new form for him: that of a giant Slor! Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you! "

I get it perfectly; if 98% cast an invalid vote and the 2% decide the election, it will become obvious to everyone just how useless voting in this rigged system really is.

Why bother voting if they are going to go ahead and choose one of their pre-selected winners regardless of the will of the people?

A vote for Cthulhu shows the world how badly our system is rigged and how the establishment blatantly ignores the will of the people. A vote for Cthulhu is a refusal to validate their corrupted system.

If they are forced to throw out a majority of the votes because they are "invalid" it will become impossible to ignore the fact that our elections are rigged and the establishment doesn't give a damn about the will of the people.

When enough people realize that, and it becomes obvious to everyone, it just may catalyze the people to finally rise up against the corruption and demand changes to have their true voices heard.

Well voting for the lesser of two evils seems to be the wrong path to take. One has to ask himself why vote for the lesser of two evils? When you can vote for the best of both evils, that way you know at least what your getting, and they will know what the hell there doing.

But hey why Cthulhu? Why not Dr Doom. The guy even runs his own country Latveria, surely he can run this country then, seems he ran in 08 and lost.

Or how about Cobra Commander if he can hold Cobra together and almost take over the world, not once, not twice, but a bunch of times, I think it was three times or something he almost took over the world. Then surely he is qualified for the job, he at least is an experienced leader and is knowledgeable about world affairs, military tactics, controlling populations, and a whole bunch of other leadership skills.

But ya your right Cthulhu would have both of these guys pissing there pants, so sure why not... Cthulhu for president, and who knows maybe cobra commander can run as his vice president, and like all leaders they can run on the promise of change podium, only unlike the rest they will deliver it.
But you know sometimes change is not all that great of a thing.

Oh wow!!! you're some role model. How about you just stay home, instead of, going through all of that trouble

I like your thread OP. I feel very much the same way you do. It seems like the presidents we vote for have fast become nothing more than figure heads for an organization of dark-hearted businessmen. These people want to write laws to govern "their people." Many of them are blatantly corrupt, doing as they please to help their ventures toward wealth. I feel like the world is governed by money. People are mesmerized by this paper idea of a secure future. What will money do for anybody when the lights go out and the big bombs are falling? This is unfortunately an inevitable end for our species and perhaps a much needed end to a violent civilization.

Electoral College my friend, Electoral College...Doesn't matter who us civi's vote for

You guys should really reconsider what you're planning here... Does Cthulhu have a US birth certificate? Did he or did he not have sexual relations with that woman? Does he have any present or past ties with Iran, Iraq or Afghani families that are now involved with terrorist activities? Did he at any time in the past try to influence the gold price? Was he ever involved with a Whiskey Ring?

And so on.

Just saying you should carefully check his background. We don't want a repeat of the past, do we now...

A third party protest vote for gary johnson would be more productive.
But hey ... have fun with your Cthulhu vote.

I would be very careful about who you "vote" for, joke or not.

When you participate in elections, you are agreeing to allow another entity to rule over you.

I've always felt that Vermin Supreme, who had the highest write-in vote count according to GreenGlassDoor's link, fits the ticket for this kind of thing quite nicely:

He elegantly tackles all of the issues that plague America, including dental health and shifting towards a pony-based economy to create jobs and end our dependence on foreign oil.

On a more serious note, the elections are rigged anyways, so what's the point? If 98% of voters pick Cthulhu for president, I'm pretty sure the MSM won't gonna report that.

Well, if we really are heading towards a one world government, I reckon everyone in the world should vote for Jeremy Clarkson to be their president/prime minister/king/God.

Just my opinion, lol.
