    How is this relavant except for ridicule?


    Whether the world is six days, six years, six thousand years or six million years does not matter in the realm of taxation or how we should deal with the people who wish to end it.

    I would kind of like to know if the person who is going to be leader of this country believes in fact or fiction.

    Come on man. I don't care if they believe in the tooth fairy and the boogey man. Honestly, this is a ONE topic election. Probably the first in history. The next President and congress had better fix the debt or we might not have an election in 2020.

    This is something i had to make peace with with Ron Paul. I think it's idiotic to deny evolution and he does. He even worked in the medical field where we see the flu virus constantly evolving.


    However I still think he'd be the best leader for this country, mainly based on his economic and foreign policy knowledge.

    I really don't give a shit. Why on Earth would anyone care about this? Are we electing President or Pope?

    Fact or fiction to you, maybe not fact or fiction to the next person.

    I want to know their opinion of science and how important they feel the cold calculus (?) is versus the Bush policy of "Looking into the eyes" of people like Putin and knowing their intentions.

    As for taxation...the Presidency is bigger than being a corporate CEO. They are the defacto leader of our culture. I think we should want someone who is a friend of science, a friend of facts, and yes; a believer in a higher power for which there are no calculations. However, if there are calculations that can be shown to be true... they better believe them IMHO.

    If we're still having elections circa 2020-2022, you can vote for me (HoR not POTUS). I might not fix it myself but the budget will at least have a loud voice that doesn't give a damn about offending people or groups of people. Hell if you don't like me, vote for me... I'll probably get myself assasinated LOL.
