“To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it.

To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.

To summarize the summary of the summary: people are a problem.”

Kucinich would be the ideal candidate. Edwards would have been awesome. Obama is good. Clinton is tolerable.

I wouldn’t vote for a Republican candidate. And Ron Paul has that batshitcrazy thing going on.

How would Kucinich be the ideal candidate?
Large government is no bueno. I like my rights.
Also, please elaborate; how is Ron Paul so crazy?

I realized after posting that that quote is from The Restaurant at the End of the Universe (chapter 28). So, to answer the question: I take quotes from Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, but, in this case, it actually wasn’t.

Look up what Kucinich believes in.. I agree with about 99% of it..

English #1 language. I don’t do Spanish.

And the Republicans are protecting your rights? Sure thing. Free speech zones, rendition, and wire-tapping. Freedom is awesome.

For starters. Getting rid of the Fed. It didn’t just magically appear. It was needed and it was created.

John Powell – Please run for President.

Oh, don’t get me wrong. Republicans are quite insane.
Libertarian, however, I can go for.
It’s true that the fed didn’t magically appear. And it’s also true that it was needed, at some point in time.
But it’s also true that it’s bankrupting us. Without a major alteration of the system, we’ll hit a depression greater than that of the 30’s. Check out some of our debt figures.
We don’t need to get rid of the entire fed. But we could do without most of it. Department of education? Leave it to the states’. IRS? could be construed as unconstitutional, as well as irrelevant. Without income tax, the national government would still intaking about as much as it was 10 years ago. Department of Energy? Let the market take care of it.
The point is, we have plenty of agencies that could be either destroyed or consolidated; why pay for the extra bureaucracy to upkeep them, when we’re in this much debt already.

Just because the fed is there doesn’t mean it should be.
