    Default Anyone else notice Roseanne Barr is on the ballot for president?

    So, while reviewing my sample ballot "cheat sheet" earlier this evening, I noticed that Roseanne Barr in the category for president. ?!?!

    I knew she was running. My older son likes her platform.

    If you smoke enough weed you might actually think she is a good choice.

    I think we ought to elect her. She reminds me of my barn manager, whom I like. She yells and outtalks everyone and no one can get a word in edgewise, but they all listen, aren't really offended, and she gets things done. Screw being PC!

    Only if Trump can be her vice-president.

    I was not sure if it was the same Rosanne, as I thought she dropped the Barr, and goes just by Rosanne. Like Cher and Madonna. Had I known it was Rosanne Barr I would have changed my vote.....


    maybe

    She wasn't on my ballot.

    Only 3 people are on the ballot in all 50 states -- Obama, Romney and Johnson.

    Supporters have to get a certain number of signatures on a petition to have their candidate on the ballot. We did to have Virgil Goode on ours.

    She'd been trying to be the Green Party nominee, but lost out to Jill Stein, who should be on more states' ballots. I believe Roseanne is just on the ballot in CA, FL, and CO as the "Peace and Freedom" Party candidate. Doesn't mean you can write her in elsewhere, should you so wish

    Yes, I know how it works. Big supporter of 3rd parties (especially the Libertarians). Hoping for the 5% that will enable the L to get more public exposure the next time around. I think it's a crime that ALL legal candidates are not allowed to partake in the televised debates at all levels of government.

    I believe Jill is on the ballot in about 37 states and is someone I would also support (just line up a little more with Johnson).

    This is the first time our 3rd party candidate needed our signatures to be included on our ballot. So I didn't know ( hope I didn't offend) how it worked . I agree that all should be allowed in the debate process. I find our whole election process very suspect.

    I make it a point to NOT notice Roseanne Barr where ever she might be.

    I got a thumbs down for my comment��. Some people are way too intense. It was a joke. I actually wrote in Frank Perdue��
