      Thank you very much. I’m running for the United States Senate as an Independent, because I think Washington is broken. And we need a change of tone in our nation’s capital to get it back working for you. Abraham Lincoln once said that the government should be "Of the people, by the
      people, and for the people." I believe that’s true. Not "of the party, by the party, and for the party." That’s why I run as an Independent.

      It’s abundantly clear to me that there’s an extreme right faction in the Republican Party. And I think that I’m only the candidate who can both win in November and crash that Tea Party in Washington. It’s time to have common sense back in our nation’s capital to fight for our fellow Floridians. You know I will do it, because I’ve done it as your Governor. When the extreme right wanted to punish teachers and schoolchildren with a bill this past legislative session, I vetoed that bill to stop it for you.

      When the extreme right wanted to change the way that women would be able to make a decision about their own life, and force them to get an ultrasound, force them to pay for it, force them to view it and then be lectured on it, it was too much to the right. And I used this veto pen, and I stopped it, too. I’ve done it as your Governor. I’ll do it as your Senator. When the extreme right said that they wanted to raise the age of eligibility and restructure how Social Security is distributed to our senior citizens, I said, "No way."

      If you want a new voice in Washington. If you want a better way. Somebody who will fight for you, the people of our state, instead of the respective parties that my opponents are in. Then I would ask for your vote on November 2nd for your next U.S. Senate member. Thank you.

      This is related to the question "Can you see black things?".

      Nothing is nothing unless it's something but I'm pretty sure it's nothing though nothing could be something... I love cake.

      I want to tell you something-- nothing.

      However, I will vote for Supernova because he wants to bring America back to America and build a bridge to a point in time we are going to reach. He is against what others are doing, and he does not support war when it is not necessary.

      Oh my God, did you see what they were wearing?

      "Nothing tastes better than chocolate." This statement could be used both by a chocoholic who believes it has the best taste, and by the person who dislikes chocolate so much (poor misguided weird person) that they would really rather have nothing instead.

      No, black people are in fact invisible.

      Ah, but black people are not actually really black. Maybe we just imagine that we see really black things, our brain using our imagination to fill in the void caused by blackness. Since the neural processes for seeing things in waking life and "seeing" things in dreams are similar would we really know if we could see no black. Also do we really know for sure that my black is like your black, maybe I call "black" what you would call "nothing" if you saw it the way I see it, but since I can do nothing to cause you to see things my way, you and I got to either agree that we are both seeing the same black or disagree or agree to disagree or disagree to disagree that black is black and nothing is nothing, right?

      The idea of "nothing" is a strange one. We generally hold the intuitive belief that something either can happen or cannot happen, or that something is something or that it is nothing. This perhaps comes from our experience in the world- we go through our entire lives seeing things apparently “not being” or “being”. For example, if I move the bottle off my table, we understand that there is nothing there (the bottle has been omitted). In fact, there is no bottle, and there is no “nothing”. What do we actually experience? We experience the continuous replacement of one part of our conscious experience with something which doesn’t resemble it. At no point is there nothing- it is just a term and idea we use to get our heads pragmatically around a change in experience. A collection of subjective conscious properties relating to the idea we refer to as “bottle”, are replaced with different properties. Arguably, a solid formation of atoms is replaced by a non-solid formation- with no division between the two, no metaphysical rift, just an eternal continuum of reality and "stuff". The idea that a thing “the bottle” is somehow replaced with “nothing” is based wholly on inferences made from the way we interpret our subjective experience and divide it up (more or less arbitarily, based on things like colour, shape, and feeling). It seems to come naturally to rational conscious agents to divide and subdivide ad nauseam, and the resulting interactions between these entirely fictional divides form the basis of philosophical problems like this one.

      Thats one sense of nothing. It doesn't touch on perhaps logical or mathematical ideas of it, but the idea of nothing in the world seems to me to be more or less an illusion.

      Yes, I was not referring to black people, but true black. True black is the absence of reflected light. Therefore nothing is reaching our eyes, and we cannot actually see it.

      Nothing is the most useful thing ever, because it is always there, always, we just all need to learn to use it.

      Nothing is the best thing ever for many reasons. If you have nothing and someone steals nothing from you, then you still have nothing. If you divorce and he/she takes half, half of nothing is nothing.

      I think that it is possible that within nothing there is something that exists, and can be observed if viewed through a higher plane of thinking.

      Nothing does not exist. Therefore, everything exists. Well, everything that is a thing exists, but nothing that is not a thing exists.

      A PhD is to research more and more about less and less until one knows everything about nothing.

      Not to change the subject, but I found a website about something.
      Something.

      For something, there sure is a lot of nothing.

      Http://nothing.org seems to have more to it than Nothing Limited Ventures, Inc. (nothing.gov does not exist yet strangely enough). I wonder why donothing.com - online community has so much on all sorts of subjects, seems to me that's doing something. However, Welcome To AbsolutelyNothing seems much better at staying on its chosen topic.

      I really think that nothing is overrated, and you guys should focus more on something.

      There are some days though when I perceive as if no matter how much I focus on something, it still amounts to nothing. And this is one of those days.
