    Yeah well that idea is a little out there for my liking.

    Ahh, it's just fun to consider. I don't really advocate dictatorship (unless it's an election year).

    Re: Jesse Ventura in 2016

    I'm going to vote the same way in the next election as I did in the last. In fact I am voting this way every time. And I recorded it for posterity. Please excuse the poor quality. It was the first time attempting it. It was a cheap phone, and I spent the previous night swilling cheap vodka, so I was inebriated, to say the least.

    And please, its NSFW!!

    I voted! 11 6 12 - YouTube

    ETA: So go out and do the same. You'll feel better, I promise.

    I dunno, might be worth trying out.
    Other nations have tried this....
    We must learn from them....Whatever happened to our education ?
    A government by, for, and of the people can never be "efficient" .

    I would make an excellent benevolent dictator. So, if you want a better world: Specklebang For Dictator 2016. I'm easy to please and with 3 cats in the White House, you'll see a much better future.

    If you'd rather live in a dictatorship, then there are plenty to choose from.

    Or, just stay here and let the government do what governments do when no one is paying attention, getting bigger and more powerful. Sooner or later, we'll be a dictatorship too.

    independent? absolutely, and this would be my preference. anything we can do to give competition to the duopoly is a net benefit.

    Ventura? no.

    I voted 'Yes' and 'someone other than besides R or D' --- though I probably would not vote for Ventura. I'd have to take a better look as his record in Minnesota.
