The most powerful tool available to voters and candidates.
Get your name on the ballot without all of the hassle of a traditional campaign. Most states have write-in laws that allow any individual that meets the basic eligibility requirements for the office they seek, such as age, citizenship, and residency, to have an opportunity for ballot access without being part of a major party. The Write-In line fixes this.
Election laws discourage ‘average’ people from becoming extraordinary leaders. The laws are nearly impossible to understand, and you could actually get yourself in some serious legal trouble if you make a mistake. It takes a powerful campaign machine, an enormous amount of cash, and support of a major party to win an election for a major office. Petitions, campaign finance, primaries – The Write-In line fixes this.
Our government at all levels is made up of career politicians, with access to enough funds to assemble a highly paid, professional campaign staff. An ‘average’ person stands little chance of having a fair shot against the establishment. The Write-In line fixes this.
Partisan politics have been damaging this country since its founding. George Washington warned us about it in his farewell address, and we ignored that warning. People have become proud of voting for the least-bad candidate, instead of demanding the best. Many people simply vote right down the party line, even without any knowledge of the candidate they are voting for. This is insane. The Write-In line fixes this.
Consider for a moment how things could have been if we elected (R)Obama, or (D)Trump. What if Bernie Sanders and Ron Paul shared many of the same views other than fiscal policy? It is possible to be a Social Liberal and Fiscal Conservative, you would just have a hard time getting a party nomination. The Write-In line fixes this.
A candidate on the write-in line of a ballot generally doesn’t get many votes, and there are only a small number of times this has been a successful campaign strategy. The Write-in line already exists, Get Out The Vote already exists. Social media is now more prevalent than MSM, and it is the greatest opportunity ‘average’ folks have ever been given take back OUR country.
Don’t run on party, run on sound policy. Save The Republic with the Write-In line.
“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”
― George Washington
