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.
