24 A President For Something

The President of Latvia, Valdis Zatlers, tells the press that he does not know who to vote for.

This voter does not know who to vote for either and does not expect that by some miracle he will before the elections are over.

This is one of the reasons why I have been suggesting that the only vote in the upcoming elections is to NOT-VOTE. The greater significance of a NOT-VOTE can be discovered by reading my preceding blogs. Incidentally, among the earliest NOT-VOTER supporters is Thomas Jefferson, who argued for nullification, i.e., the right of the citizenry to nullify everything from laws to governments. The basis for Jefferson’s argument is that it is the people who are the sovereign, with government acting on their behalf only as long as the people not NOT-VOTE and de-authorize it.
