Ten reasons I wouldn't vote for Michael Badnarik: 10. Says abortions should always be illegal. This one isn't far off, but they should still be legal in the cases of incest and most certainly rape. 9. Wants to slightly decrease funding for defense. Not a good idea. 8. Wants to eliminate funding for homeland security. What? Horrible idea! 7. Wants to eliminate funding for the environment. Okay, I'm no tree hugger, but everybody wants clean water. Totally eliminate? No. 6. Wants to greatly decrease funding for intelligence operations. Great timing on that one. Not! 5. Wants to eliminate programs associated with the war on drugs. Yeah, we all know that song... 4. Wants to eliminate ALL foreign aid. I would agree with cutting back and being more selective, but not totally eliminating it. 3. Wants to eliminate ALL welfare programs. Okay, so legalize drugs then cut off welfare. We'd all NEED guns then. Just a joke (sort of). Again, more selective about who gets welfare and for how long, yes. Totally eliminate, no. 2. Proposed convicted felons serve the first month of their sentence in bed so their muscles would atrophy. I'll be the first to say prisoners are not treated like criminals nearly enough anymore, but this is getting a little nuts. 1. Michael Badnarik is nuttier than a jar of Jif. Even if it was a figure of speech, anyone that says they would "blow up the UN building" on the eighth day of their administration is totally lacking common sense. There's a nice image for the 9/11 families. The whole drivers license thing, not filing taxes, the zip code thing, it's all just loopy. To top it all off, the Libertarian party essentially nominated this guy based on ONE night of speaking. Badnarik has never held ANY political office (he ran for congress in Texas twice and lost both times), so there is no voting record to go on. My suggestion would be he try to start out with something a little smaller than President of the United States. Get elected to SOMETHING. The Buda City Council, dog catcher, something. Try not to get off topic.
