Here is a link to the write in requirements of each state. It looks like the candidate must want to be on the ballot and complete the requirements by the states deadlines.http://writein2008.blogspot.com/search/
I don't have the time to researfch it right now, but here's my bottom line:Under no circumstances will I vote for anyone who hasn't earned my respect, or represents a political party that has not earned my vote.....PERIOD!
(my one vote belongs to me & I'm not giving it away or letting anyone steal it from me!)
What do you suppose would happen if everyone refused to pick an "Anointed" candidate's name on the ballot but instead wrote i n Ron Paul's name The tabulation machines would show no votes so they would have to actually look at the ballots. Low & behold, if Ron Paul's name was there & had received a majority of votes, he would have to be chosen as President or it's....everyone grab your guns & let's hit the street!!!
