Oooo kay... This is really freaky.
music: office chatter
i think that sounds awesome. its better than the system we have now, where there is little to no choice involved. think of the amount of people who are instantly out of the running for any political office... pretty much any minority, people with no money/not from the "right family", people who don't have a posse of lawyers or a less than spotless past (hah)...
yeah, there's that.
But consider your average serial TV viewer...

and you also have to consider this....do you HONESTLY think that person would win!?!?!??!
I honestly think that they'd have a good chance.
far better name recognition for one thing.

whoo. i don't know whether to cheer or to go get my passport in order.
*busts out his old fiddle*
Actually the more I think about it, the more OK I am with it.
At the very least it'll be a third party that may actually have some different views.
And to run for president you have to be at least 35, so that rules out the whacko twenty-somethings.
We shall see. All in all it may be a positive change.
But still creepy.
