Well, I found a link to my own blog on the Pacifica elections web site, http://www.pacificafoundation.org/elections/, in a comment by somebody with the handle a2sfan and the self-description "Aaron Fan". This is presumably the person I heard about who tells people to vote for me as a write-in candidate. After I get a good night's sleep, I'll try to find out more.
Actually, the idea of voting for me, Aaron Aarons, as a write-in on the KPFA LSB ballot isn't a bad one! Thanks to the Single Transferable Vote system, your vote isn't wasted by voting for someone who can't win, since it will just go to the next person in your ranking. And it's a way of showing support for the radical anti-imperialist politics I advocate. (I'm more likely to be struck by lightening than to actually get elected this way, and I'm not sure which of those two improbable events would be worse for my mental and physical health.)
But, whether you write me (or anyone else) in or not, I strongly urge the following order of ranking for the slates that are running:
- People's Radio
- Voices For Justice
- I Team
More to come! Good night, comrades, compas, and friends.
