More politics

I think I’ve found a candidate worthy of my support in the 2012 presidential election: Scott Adams.

I don’t agree with everything he supports, but overall I think he’s a pretty reasonable person. Take a look at his post “Why You Should Vote for Me” and you’ll see what I mean.

For example:

Public Debate: I’ll host televised public debates on our domestic policy options, in an entertaining fashion. And I’ll interrupt and humiliate participants who ignore the known facts and the best science. I’ll make it my job to provide the public with useful information, in proper context, and free of politics. You won’t get that from the other candidates. In today’s world, voting and guessing is almost the same thing. The major political parties have a strong interest in keeping voters ignorant. I’ll change that.

Revenge on Congress: According to the polls, most of you think Congress needs a kick in the ass. Neither Romney nor Obama are likely to do much about Congress except gripe about it in a general way. And neither man will complain about his own party. After I finish a few of my public debates as President, I’ll go after individual members of Congress that are favoring politics over the facts. I’ll bring accountability to Congress if I can. At the very least, I’ll shine the light of shame on the worst cockroaches in both parties and make them scurry. You’ll enjoy watching it.

Can you see the appeal?

    I think Scott Adams is the answer! I can definitely see the appeal.

    Adams is far from perfect (I don’t agree with all of his opinions), but when it comes to ideas for running the country, I think he’s way ahead of the back.
