I was like that! In the past I've done write-ins for Mickey Mouse, Luke Skywalker, even Deez Nutz!

According to Wikipedia, Michael George Nelson, legally changed his name to GoodSpaceGuy in 2006. GoodSpaceGuy has ran for public office many times including for U.S. senator and Washington governor. He's run as a Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, Trump Republican Party, and as a candidate of the non-existent "Employmentwealth Party." He views himself as an amateur economist with a business background. His political positions generally revolve around his support for... you guessed it, space!
