    Thanks for the list Dr. Veith, I will not be able to vote for Romney as he is not pro-life (only claiming that, wonder how long till he echa-schtces that) so I will have to see if any of these are truely Pro-Life.

    Romney = Obama
    (both pro-abortion, both for government health care, etc)

    What a joke. You know, my son says he wants to be president. Many of you would like him — he’s had limited schooling (preschool), so he’s not one of these elite politicians whose gone to Harvard and the like. His platform includes free Baskin Robbins vanilla ice cream for all (he only likes vanilla). Anybody want to bet that he has less of a statistical chance of winning in November than any one on that list?

    Michael B, #2,

    How strange that we are both fathers of opposing candidates! My preschool daughter categorically opposes your son’s “free ice cream for all” socialism and the crony capitalism that favors Baskin Robbins. She stands on a platform of the free market greed driven capialism: She will accept ice cream from anywhere, and she doesn’t care who else gets some, as long as she gets hers. I am proud to offer her my support, and often do so when we drive by Dairy Queen.

    Should we have a straw poll for the preschool candidate?

    I am opposed to allowing cheap, slave-labor made Chinese ice cream into our country. Besides, they probably put gross stuff like seaweed in it.

    Or little babies, SK.

    I, for one, am absolutely delighted by the idea of the Prohibition Party. Talk about devoting your life to a forever losing cause. They need my vote of support.
    If I were voting just on the picture, however, I would go for the smiles of the Socialist Party USA.

    Hey! I am the proud relative of a Neal Dow, a Prohibition Party candidate that came in fourth place in the general election of 1880! And he would have done better were it not for the false (and some might say “jackleg,” though I’m not implying anything) reporting by several national news publications that Dow had withdrawn from the election and endorsed James Garfield. The Prohibition Party was robbed!

    The LPP is just more special interest pleading. We need a robust dairy production system that is not wedded to unproven alternative soy or almond based production platforms. We have hundreds of thousands of dairy cows in the United States that are not in production due to short-sighted tax policies and intrusive environmental regulations. Our national response should be “Milk It, Baby. Milk It!” Not some pie-in-the-sky dreamland where we cater to every lactose-intolerant or vanilla-only, soft-serve banning socialist. America has consistently stood up for cow-based dairy production; it is part of what has made our nation the envy of the world. Keep dairy production alive in the United States. Keep the government out of my cheese. Vote for the Dairy Freedom Party.

    My 3-year-old son is part of the ‘Occupy-Dad’s-House’ movement and in his eyes I must be a 1-Percenter because he expects me to pay for all the ice cream he can eat. His favorite favor is whatever is in the freezer. Vote for Joe and there will be a scoop in every cone!

    “Keep the government out of my cheese” — So funny! But a better approacj to strengthen our Dairy Industry would be an “Individual Dairy Mandate”–milk, ice cream, or cheese qualifies so long as you consume the USDA recommended allowances for Dairy each day. The Industry could use the extra profits to provide free Dairy to the poor and we could set up Dairy Exchanges in the states to distribute it. I believe this is a great idea–you know how the cream rises to the top!

    There’s my Women’s Temperance League candidates under the Prohibition Party. I always feel better knowing I have a viable alternative to the establishment parties. Vote prohibition and end the ugly sight of children wobbling down public streets under the demonic influence of rum …… and raisin ice cream.

    You know, I think a lot of you are missing the fun to be had in noting the other people who are running just for the two main parties’ nominations.

    For instance, according to that site, Vermin Supreme is running for the Democratic nomination. (Memo to Carl Vehse: no, that is actually the candidate’s name.)

    Also running for the Dems? Randall “Operation Rescue” Terry. I missed that memo. He apparently will actually have a couple of delegates at the national convention.

    On the Republican side, there’s George Bailey Jr. Who, I can only imagine, is running on the same economic platform as his father, informing US taxpayers that “You’re thinking of the Treasury all wrong. As if we had the money back in a safe. The money’s not here. Your money’s in Joe [Biden]‘s house, and in the Kennedy house…and a hundred others.”

    Anyhow, I really respect the Party of Socialism and Liberation’s willingness to think outside the box. Why not nominate people who are constitutionally unqualified to serve, indeed! I hope they continue this line of thinking in future elections, as I look forward to voting for their A Squirrel / The Color Blue ticket in 2016.

    The PSL (splitters!) has a wonderfully (if not intentionally) humorous website detailing their platform:

    Our 10-point Program

    Raising the banner of workers’ rights

    Make a job a Constitutional right
    Tens of millions are jobless and under-employed because the capitalists control employment. A decent paying job must be a legal, guaranteed right. The minimum wage should be raised to $20 per hour and a living income must be guaranteed for those who cannot work.
    Make free health care, free education and affordable housing Constitutional rights
    These are essentials of life and should not be run for-profit. Create a completely free and public health care system. Make education free—cancel all student debt. Stop all foreclosures and evictions – end all mortgage interest payments to the banks
    Shut down all U.S. military bases around the world—bring all the troops, planes & ships home
    U.S. foreign policy uses the pretext of national security to enforce the imperialist interests of the biggest banks and corporations. That’s what is behind the endless wars and occupations. Use the $1 trillion military budget instead to provide for people’s needs here and around the world. Stop U.S. aid to Israel. End the blockade of Cuba.
    Stop racist police brutality and mass incarceration
    More than three million people are behind bars in the largest prison complex in the world. Mass incarceration of our youth is the real crime. End the mass incarceration of oppressed communities. Fully prosecute all acts of police brutality and violence.
    Defend our unions
    Support the right of all workers to have a union. Fight back against the attacks on collective bargaining. Pass the Employee Free Choice Act and repeal the Taft-Hartley Act. In the spirit of Wisconsin, rebuild a fighting—and striking—labor movement.
    Equality for women and free, safe, legal abortion on demand
    Stop the attack on women’s reproductive rights and defend Roe v. Wade. Women must have the fundamental right to choose and control their own bodies. Women still earn 22 percent less than men, and the gap is even more severe for Black and Latina women. Close the wage gap and end the gender division of labor.
    Full rights for all immigrants
    Abolish all anti-immigrant laws. Stop the raids and deportations. The government’s war on immigrants must end. The border wall must be dismantled.
    Full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people
    Make same-sex marriage a federal right—keep the movement in the streets. Fight anti-LGBT discrimination and violence.
    Save the planet—End capitalism
    We need a central economic plan to significantly cut greenhouse gases, clean up the environment and build a massive renewable energy network. The for-profit economic system creates incentives to pollute. No fracking, no Keystone pipeline!
    Seize the banks—Jail Wall Street criminals
    The banks’ vast wealth came from the people’s labor and tax-dollar bailout. Capitalist banking is a form of organized crime, rewarding greed and fraud with obscene bonuses. These billionaires looted and destroyed the economy. It is time to seize their assets and use those resources in the interests of the vast majority. Power must be taken out of the hands of the super-rich, and the Wall Street criminals must be held accountable.

    @SK

    A great platform to be sure. I have a few things that need clearing up:

    Do we release everyone from jail before or after we throw all the police and bankers in jail?

    Do we allow foreign bankers to immigrate into the US? If so, do we through said bankers in jail as soon as they cross the border? If not, how do we keep them out without creating anti-immigration laws?

    What would union members have to strike for if they’re paid $20/hour, forgiven of all debts, given free education, medical care, and housing. If capitalism is abolished and, presumably, businesses are no longer allowed to exist, who would they have to fight against?

    What do we do with the planes and ships we bring home?

    I rather loss AND stand by my principals then win and sell out my soul. I have the voter registration form filled out to change parties too, just need a bit more information on what to put on it for the party affiliation (do I do other and write the name in, or do I put unaffiliated)

    Something just occurred to me and perhaps its been discussed previously and I missed it. Setting aside one can have a non-christian leader all he/she need be is a wise and good ruler, there might be a bit of irony now in the GOP. Traditionally it has been the “party of the evangelicals” so to speak and the DNC mostly the party of at best the liberal theologians. But the GOP stands to be, if I’m not mistaken, the first party to potentially elect the first non-Christian president. “What individual presidents believed and stated in their lifes aside”, if I’m not mistaken all to date have been at least professing Christians and baptized such that their baptisms would be recognized as Christian baptism. But the GOP now has candidate that could be the first pure unbaptized pagan.

    The old wags in the Soviet satellite states used to have lots of dark jokes about socialism. In particular: If the socialists took control of the Sahara Desert today, tomorrow there would be a shortage of sand.

    If the plethora of socialism failures of the 20th century didn’t teach us everything we need to know about socialism, then nothing ever will. Every plank in the PSL (splitters, Palestinian (Judean) Socialist League*) platform is a big “been there, done that, over and over.” Marxism kills by the millions.

    Joanne’s Maxim: Socialism is an extremely expensive luxury; only very productive and wealth-creating capitalist economies can afford very much of it.

    Joanne’s very obvious notion: Capitalism creates wealth; Socialism destroys wealth.

    Something Joanne heard somewhere: There is a lot of loss in a country. Meaning that it can take a very long time to economically collapse a wealthy country. You can have policies that lose wealth for a very long time before a country loses it all.

But the GOP now has candidate that could be the first pure unbaptized pagan.”

    But Mitt says he is a Christian, and he has been baptized–probably lots of times baptized, not just for himself but for a lot of dead people as well.

    As far as the GOP itself is concerned–if they’re at all concerned about it in the slightest, which I don’t think they are–they’re getting a “Christian” in Mitt. Not sure they would see it as irony.

  • larry

    Jon,

    You are right, the GOP won’t see that Mitt’s baptism is not Christian baptism in the name of the Trinity confessed in the Scriptures, Apostles, Nicene Creeds. The GOP like many define “christianity” by way of morals and naturally to them he’d be christian. But then again what they think is “christian” is nothing more than sheep’s cloth over a wolf. In that since, that connection, he’s very dangerous – not because he cannot lead as a president (even rank heathens can be good earthly kings) but because of that mixture.

    You are right, they won’t see the irony, but it is there nonetheless.
