    Thanks for that, really. I guess the only reason I think he is crazy is those CT shows he does. Becasue except the Prochoice thing, I really either dont disagree with those points or not storngly. Interesting. I will read more about him. Thanks for getting me started.

    Populist, democratic governmental reform
    Somewhat in the middle with healthcare
    More of a skeptic of anti-illegal immigrant lobbyists
    Solidly pro-union, pro-agricultural subsidies
    In regard to many issues, more libertarian (welfare state, etc.)

    Having worked for Ross Perot, an independent candidate for president here is the criteria for an independent to win the White House.
    1. Must be charismatic
    2. Must have a message that resonates with the people that the two major parties are not addressing or it seems they are not addressing
    3. Must have a vision where he wants to lead America
    4. Must have common sense solutions to problems that the two major parties are not attempting to solve or are putting off
    5. Must be independently wealthy.
    A. This is due to the two existing parties write all election laws as a mutual protection act. The independent candidate will need to expand millions to get on the ballot by challenging a lot of these laws state by state.
    B. The independent candidate will need to pay petitioners to get the required signatures for ballot access as described by the different laws of all the states.
    C. Due to the fact that corporations, lobbyists, Wall Street firms, super pacs and pacs, huge money individuals etc. who all donate to the campaigns of the two major parties the independent candidate will not have access to he will have expand a huge amount of his own money to get his own message out.
    6. There has to be a feeling among the electorate that the two major parties are out for themselves and not America. The electorate needs to be disgusted with both major parties.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    He's a good guy. He's not a politically viable personality because he's a good guy. He's a little nuts, but in viewing our culture, it's understandable.

    No I don't think he'd have a chance. And I would not vote for him (the conspiracy theory stuff is just too far out there, but there are also other things I don't agree with him about).

    Now, I'd vote for Betty White (White Power)(and no, I don't think she would ever seriously run for President although she likely has some serious backing now, even at her age). I think watching her on the Late, Late Show in 2012 was the only time I've ever caught any part of that show and it was just plain hilarious.
