Dear Senator McCain,
You may remember me from a meeting we had in your office years back to discuss Social Security reform. I’m an economist at Boston University. I’m also one of what I believe are only five people who can legally be elected President on November 8th.
I’m a nationally registered write-in candidate. (To be precise, I’m on the ballot in LA and CO.) Only registered write-in candidates have their votes counted. So, for example, your writing in Mike Pence for President in Arizona will mean your vote will be completely ignored whereas writing me in will not.
I deeply respect your decision to publicly withdrawal support for Donald Trump.
But not voting is no option. Neither is voting for Clinton. Yes, Clinton is mentally stable. But her policies will fix nothing fundamental and exacerbate our nation’s ongoing economic decline and national security risks.
And voting for a non registered write-in candidate is as good as staying home since Arizona won’t count your write-in Presidential vote even if you are writing in Mike Pence.
Senator, I’m asking you to check out my platform at at www.kotlikoff2016.com and, if you agree with the majority of my policy proposals, publicly announce you will write me in.
I think my platform is much closer to your views than those of anyone who can legally be elected President.
With these seven words, “I’m writing in Laurence Kotlikoff for President,” you can, I sense, flip the entire Republican Party in my direction and lead them to something far closer to your party’s promised land.
All yours, Larry
