Sick of the Democrat vs. Republican same ol’, same ol’? Ever wish that our country wasn’t so, well, bipartisan? Ever wish there was a platform that you could REALLY influence?
Now is your chance! Travis Swicegood, friend and fellow citizen, has announced his quasi-serious bid as write-in candidate for President of the United States of America. His Vote Twice For Swice campaign is aimed at the Political Machine to point out the weaknesses of a bipartisan system. It’s an awareness campaign to promote the issues of most concern to the general populace of america, the centrist and swing-voters. It’s an effort to show the weakneses of a electronic voting system (i.e. no write-ins). It’s a political platform written not just for-the-people, but also by-the-people…literally. It’s the first-of-it’s-kind, geniune, Wiki Political Party.
So, is this a joke? In short, No. It is a political awareness campaign. Travis is not a valid candidate for President, but he is founder of this movement. With a full wiki-based platform, he has left the issues open submission and editing from contributors. Interested? Curious even? He has a few suggestions for how you yourself can contribute to the first ever Wiki-based political party. If nothing else, this has potential to be a very effective sounding board for centrists to voice-up their political views.
I support Vote Twice For Swice!

Truly the most unique doorbell I have ever seen. Either this guy is very sick-in-the-head or an absolute genius. Most likely a little of both.
With a doorbell like this, Salesmen and unwanted guests will think twice before ringing, people will pay attention to “Please Knock, Baby is Sleeping” signs, and you’ll find out how sick and twisted your friends really are by how many times they consecutively ring your doorbell.
