11:38 pm - Vote for sale
Inspired by patrissimo, I will also make the following offer:
I am not planning to vote. However, I will sell my vote to the highest bidder of any amount above $49.00. Place your bid in the comments below. It will have to be on the honor system, I’m afraid, but I would like to point out that I have 100% positive feedback on ebay.
If you want to know why you probably shouldn’t waste your money in any case, watch this interview with Gordon Tullock, in which he explains why he’s not voting.
[EDIT: On the legality of vote selling. Sigh. Yet another example of regulatory capture–you can only buy votes wholesale. Since even offering to sell your vote is a felony, consider this post for amusement purposes only.]
