I did not understand this was a get out the vote thing until looking at that.

It reminded me of Hunter S. Thompson's quote that "if every deadhead had voted in 2000 we'd have a different country today."

Oh how true it was then. And it still holds true.

Here is a link to the quote, which I didn't know was from a letter written a year before HST death in 2004 to Hugh Hefner congratulating him on the 50th anniversary of (I just get it for the articles) Playboy.

Cut and paste it if you want. Won't post with full address

playboy.com/magazine/fear-and-justice-in-the-kingdom-of-sex

Here's part of the letter which puts the quote in some sort of context.

"Remembering Nixon now is like remembering the Age of Aquarius—free love and tie-dyed T-shirts. Ho ho. No more of that bullshit. Things are different, things have changed. We live in a new millennium.

Yes, sir. Hot damn! It’s about time we woke up and got rid of that crude, old-timey Corruption that has ruined our lives and caused our children’s brains to rot.

This is the worst political nightmare to erupt in this country that I have ever seen. If every Deadhead had voted for president in 2000, we would have a different country today. Maybe better, maybe worse, but definitely not the inconceivable disaster we have now. No money, no highways, no railroads, no airlines, no schools, no bridges and no hope for anything better. That is the No-Fun Club.

Go down with the ship, sucker. You are now a dues-paying member of the No-Fun Club, and your life is getting worse every day. Hell, if I were 22 years old in this country today I’d be wearing earphones too. No news is good news.

But wait! Don’t touch that dial. I have incredibly good news for You: This is your lucky day, numb-nuts, because there is a plan that will jerk You out of that horrible rut that you were plunged into by whores you can never know.

The only way out of the No-Fun Club is to have some serious fun. Go wild on a binge of some kind. Kick out the jams like a crazy animal. Get those shit-eating cobwebs out of your brain. Kick the shit out of people who are getting in your way. Whoop it up.

From my own experience, I’d have to say that the most fun I ever had with my clothes on was kicking Nixon out of the White House. The point is that running a criminal swine like George W. Bush out of Washington would be an adult dose of Fun.

I am a famously Patriotic American writer, and I am personally embarrassed by the fascist behavioral sink that these shit-eating greedheads from Texas have deliberately plunged us into. Those pigs deserve to be boiled in their own oil.

Whoops! What am I saying? Sorry. That outburst came out of nowhere. It just sort of popped out of me. Let’s get back to Richard Nixon and all the evil eggs he laid in the White House: Rumsfeld… Cheney… Kissinger… Schlesinger… Admiral Poindexter. They were all in Nixon’s inner circle. And then Reagan’s. And then Old Man Bush’s. And ye gods!… Now they are the closest advisors to Bush Junior. How long, O Lord, how long?"



They and their descendants are still lurking friends.
