Accessing the Damage
The 2012 election was a disaster. Not just because Barack Obama won (it would have been a disaster if Mitt Romney, Gary Johnson, Jill Stein, Roseanne Barr, or Vermin Supreme won), it was a disaster because I did not win. I received fewer votes than in 2008. I couldn’t even win Saguache County, Colorado this time.
Much of my campaigning in the last month was hampered by my computer crapping out and by Hurricane Sandy. And while the women at the nudie bar like me as a patron, I could not parlay that into them campaigning for me or for them getting out to vote.
The “Voter ID” laws also caused damage to my voting base. Deceased people and zombies tend not to carry identification on their persons because they generally don’t need identification.Neither demographic drives so they don’t need to get a drivers’ licence.
My campaign’s exposure to the mainstream was also sorely lacking. I received no television coverage other than the occasional apolitical tweet read on television.
My goal is to run another penniless campaign in 2016. But if I can’t get any television exposure or trend on Twitter, then I will spend some money on the campaign. There might even be a PayPal account for donations. (I hate asking for money.)
There will be goals set soon and I will post them once I figure out how I am going to win in 2016.
