If you visit the Myspace Election 2008 page you will see only the Democratic and Republican candidates listed. (I know, big surprise from a Fox-owned company.) Even though most of us abhor Myspace, we should still be emailing them about the obvious exclusion of FOUR other candidates.
They’re exposing their users to only 2 out of 6 candidates which means they’re only giving us 30% of our options! This is not acceptable.
Here’s the quick and easy way to take action:
- Email them via this contact form. Be sure to point out that they’re including only 2 out of 6 candidates, and they owe it to their members to include ALL candidates on the ballot, including the Constitution Party, Green Party, Libertarian Party, and Independent candidates.
- Pass this on!
We all have issues with Myspace, I know, but the fact remains that millions of voters look at this page and may otherwise have no idea there are 4 other options.
DEMAND that ALL candidates be included!
“The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy.”
