Okay, T, we're going to have to have a little fair play here. Let's take a look at your nutty dark horse Badnarik. I do keep an eye on some of the third parties, and in fact voted for Harry Browne in 2000. I assumed Gary Nolan was going to get the Libertarian nod and was quite surprised to hear that Badnarik got it. Apparently, so were a lot of Libertarians. He was virtually unknown within the party and, from what I've read, was nominated without most Libertarians knowing his views or his history. *Badnarik refused to file an income tax return for years. If someone doesn't like the IRS, fine by me, but you should still have to follow the law. *After moving to Texas from California, he refused to obtain a Texas drivers license because he didn't want to provide his social security number. *Badnarik proposed convicted felons serve the first month of their sentence in bed so their muscles would atrophy and they'd be less trouble for guards. Would he still say that if he faced felony arrest for refusing to file tax returns? *Badnarik said he would blow up the UN building on the eighth day of his administration. Oh, after giving the occupants a chance to evacuate. How nice. *He would require all 535 members of congress to sit through a one week session of his Constitution class so they would learn HIS interpretation of it. (sarcasim warning) Thank God we have Michael Badnarik to explain it to us. All of this was on his website, but convieniently taken off after his nomination. One of my big problems with the Libertarian party is the across the board drug legalization, which seems to stem from the belief that if you lift all the laws people will straighten up, fly right, and police themselves. Sorry, not going to happen. The Libertarian party is still interesting, but Badnarik is a little to loopy for my taste when choosing a president.
