    John "I think I'm a suspect in a murder, but I'm on the run, because Belize cops are corrupt" McAfee?

    Wow. It's going a bit mental over there isn't it?

    But he was born in Scotland so I'm pretty sure he can't run..?

    You poor chaps really have a line up this year, don't you? :eeek: I was going to post something along the same lines.

    Is Obama running for President again? I really hope so.

    Lawrence Lessig or Bernie Sanders (or especially with Sanders as Lessig VP) is the US's best option. Nothing will get done whilst private money is so rampant. It has been shown that over the last 20 odd years that public opinion has no effect on policy whereas donor interests match almost perfectly with policies.

    Those two are the only ones not just speaking rhetoric to get elected, like Obama did.

    If you don't know about Lessig, he is running as a mandate candidate. If elected his only priority will be to remove private money from the political process. When it is done he will resign and his VP will take over.

    Given Congress will fight him tooth and nail on that... good luck.

    Also, who is his VP, since apparently that would be the guy ACTUALLY running for president?

    Alsoalso: Deez Nuts looked like a good candidate. Doing well in the opinion polls, too.
