I just voted in the Va primary. The ballot looked ridiculous. Two names on this huge ballot card, Mortimer and Crazy. I chose crazy. To add insult to injury the polling place had huge signs that saud write in's not allowed. Talk about in your face....
Great choice you got there.
Don’t be surprised if Romney accuses you of “dirty tricks” like in Michigan.
Uncle Crazy...there’s a song in there somewhere.
March 6 VA Republican Presidential Primary, your 4 voting options

On March 6th, the Republican Party of Virginia will be holding its Presidential Primary at your local polling precincts. Polls open just like regular voting times, 6am to 7pm.
You have 4 choices: Vote for Romney, vote for Paul, stay home/dont vote or show up and do an undervote.
Please do go to the polls and vote, if possible. More votes at the poll show more Republican strength.
An undervote allows you to vote (in person or absentee) by showing up, pressing the VOTE button without choosing either candidate. Some might consider it a protest vote or a blank vote, if you choice is not on the ballot but it counts as a vote in the Republican primary, without adding a vote to either candidate on the ballot.
You are NOT allowed to do a write-in in a Virginia Primary.
The worst part were the “NO write in” signs, this was new. It had a weird third worldishnes to it.
Isn’t it pathetic? My husband called me a little while ago to tell me he voted for the lunatic. I’ll be doing the same thing later.
He said he was the only person in the polling place.
Me, too. I voted pro-life. That meant the crazy uncle.
Them muslemen have a candidate and we don't? Who was it? Sheik Osama?
The A-rabs are taking over!
Do you feel dirty?
Yeah I voted for the Jew-hating libertarian because I don’t like the Party telling me how to vote.
Paul Qeada LOL
Wow...conservative white voters (and a few black ones) being ‘disenfranchised’ in Virginia...never thought I’d see the day.
LOL...now THAT’S funny! Well done!
I’m trying my best to work up the gumption to go vote in this farce. Chalk me up as another crazy vote.
LOL! Good for you!
Actually, I will be doing the same shortly and my wife already did so early this morning. (Teachers get up sooooo darn early! ...which means 2 Westies are also up and eagerly awaiting their chow ...which means I, too, am up!!!)
I would prefer the under vote but it does make sense make sense to try to deny Romney delegates. Reminds me of the questions kids sometimes ask each other, would you rather freeze to death or burn to death or would you rather be hit by the train or jump off this high tressel onto the concrete? Virginians Conservatives have been disrespected and taken for granted by establishment Republicans and left with a choice between Romney and his co-conspirator and I hope you are able to retaliate against some individuals in the future.
Pretty much everything that has happened in the past 3-4 years in American politics has a weird third worldishness to it.
I hate Ron Paul but if I lived in VA that’s exactly who I would vote for today: Ron Paul.
What better way to stick it to the pro-Romney priggish control-freaks who put up the “no write-in votes” sign than to vote for Ron Paul?
Who knows, A Ron Paul win might even inspire a catfight between them.
On [that] world, the people are people. The leaders are lizards. The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people.
Odd, said Arthur, I thought you said it was a democracy?
I did, said Ford, It is.
So, said Arthur, hoping he wasnt sounding ridiculously obtuse, why dont the people get rid of the lizards?
It honestly doesnt occur to them, said Ford. Theyve all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government theyve voted in more or less approximates to the government they want.
You mean they actually vote for the lizards?
Oh yes, said Ford with a shrug, of course.
But, said Arthur, going for the big one again, why?
Because if they didnt vote for a lizard, said Ford, the wrong lizard might get in.
I voted for Paul earlier today.
Based on the turnout .... he just might win this in a landslide :^D
I just did the same thing
Wouldn’t it be great, in a weird way, if Uncle Crazy won in Va?
I would just modify the ballot by crossing out Paul and writing in Newt.
I can’t bring myself to support Paul or Mitt for anything. Not even for dog catcher.
The polling Nazi’s would allow no write ins or alterations. It was POSTED EVERYWHERE on huge signs.
I’d do it anyway. Now that’s a protest. Picking one of the above would be surrendering your vote to their will.
I believe the polling Nazi’s can stop the ballot if it is altered in anty way, except the ovals being filled.
If 5 people “undervote” and Romney wins by 4 votes, then you handed him the win. 5 votes for Paul would change that to a win for Paul. Undervoting helps Romney.
On the Ron Paul forums they seem disappointed that Ron Paul apparently didn’t run one single ad in Virginia. I joined their forum last night to tell them their candidate’s a fraud who’s in this only to help hand establishment golden boy Romney the election. Got “zotted” from their forum shortly thereafter.
Let’s hope voting for Ron Paul isn’t like a gateway drug. Pretty soon you’ll find yourself voting for Ralph Nader and Lyndon LaRouche...
I’d pull the level for Paul today.
Give the GOP establishment something to sleep on.
You did the right thing. Crazy Ron might just win a primary.
>Wouldnt it be great, in a weird way, if Uncle Crazy won in Va?<
Well, my family did its part for Uncle Looney. One things for sure, they’re going to know there were more than a couple of protest votes cast.
ROTFL---bite your tongue!
I see your point, Ron Paul is never going to get the nomination or to be President. That would make him the logical choice between the two but it would still hurt.
