None of the Above
I don't like either candidate. I don't trust either and I don't want to vote for the lesser of two evils as that vote does not express my true preference nor give me what I want in a candidate.
Time to vote "None of the above" and make Washington start offering candidates we can vote for, rather than against. Wouldn't it be refreshing for voters, (and motivating for candidates) if we had the option of saying "Your both unworthy, send us two more!"

I don't know anything about this organization but it is an interesting idea. It seems to follow the thinking of those who would like to support someone like Ron Paul but understand the mathematical irrelevance of a write in candidate, and don't want to spend their vote defensively or in an unproductive abstention. It might also bring more voters to the polls, such as those who cannot in clear conscience vote for either candidate and boycott the whole process in silent protest. If nothing else it is an interesting read.

Voters for None of the Above http://nota.org/

A nonpartisan organization dedicated to enacting Voter Consent laws, giving voters the ballot option to reject all candidates for an office and to call for a new election, with new candidates, to fill that office.

You forget the problem with that Congress can vote in the president if the people do not do their jobs.

A nice concept to consider. But, we are stuck with the 2 party system we have. And the 2 guys running. There is no getting around it.

Its your right as a voter though. Maybe if there were enough of you, then maybe they would get the message.

But, I doubt it.
