From this I take it that you vote.
Do you really think that your vote counts?
Let's suppose and revise that question to you living in Colorado.
Do you have the prerogative of writing in Edward Teach as a candidate?
Actually, Teach was a fairly nice guy by politician standards.
A shrewd and calculating leader, Teach spurned the use of force, relying instead on his fearsome image to elicit the response he desired from those he robbed. Contrary to the modern-day picture of the traditional tyrannical pirate, he commanded his vessels with the permission of their crews and there is no known account of his ever having harmed or murdered those he held captive. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackbeard
