    Re: Your political involvement

    I love to work on political campaigns and have done so countless times and at many levels (local to Presidential). I enjoy the campaigns although I can't stand the partisanship.

    I've served on a city planning commission, but it was an appointed position. No election required.

    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.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    A few years ago I was at a local political event standing there shooting the breeze with nice, congenial grey haired gent. A little way into the conversation he stuck out his hand and said, "Nice to meet you. I'm Barry Goldwater."

    I had already stuck out my hand but double checked myself and took a good look at him to make sure I hadn't been talking to some kook. He sure looked like Barry Goldwater and the words "I thought you were dead" were on my lips when he said "Junior".
