Follow-Up Competition

After reading today’s 2 Paragraphs edition, one of our Family members made this suggestion to have a competition, which I now pass along to you. So please send me your original and creative vote-buying proposals. Then I will publish some of the best ones, and mail a copy of my All Rise: the Libertarian Way with Judge Jim Gray book to the author of the best one. And please include whether or not I can include attribution your idea to you or not.

Here is his message:

To really point out how totally bogus these vote buying schemes are,
why not suggest a competition among your readers to see who can
come up with the most ludicrous vote buying proposal.

To make it a little more challenging, it must be an original idea…

No one gets credit for anything that’s already been tried or is in effect,
(like subsidizing farmers for NOT growing crops…that’s passe).

Thanks for the suggestion!!

Judge Jim
