Benoit iconLibertarian Mike Benoit, running for U.S. Congress in California’s 52nd District, has been on a hunger strike for the last week. He hopes the strike will convince his incumbent opponent to agree to earlier debates.

Politico writes:

The strike started with Democrat Ray Lutz, who said he got the idea from former California Rep. Jim Bates. Benoit immediately joined in. The pair are on their fifth day of a hunger strike they started at sundown on Aug. 12.

They want Hunter to join them in a series of debates beginning on Aug. 25. Hunter has agreed to debate Lutz and Benoit — but not until October.

    I’m sorry but I cannot endorse trifling with a hunger strike.
    I thought about it.
    Unless you are willing to go all the way to death, like they did in the Ireland hunger strike, you are trifling. You can always-& I mean literally always-24/7, go a small distance & wolf down a burger & fries & ice cream & wash it down with soda pop.
    There is plenty enough of real hunger in the world. Don’t trifle.
    Or go all the way. You would probably be dead well before the election. Especially if you don’t cheat & drink any cool, clean water, either.
