    I'm not overly political, but I like to do my part. If I don't know all the facts to make an informed decision, then I do not vote. Getting all the facts with this election has been pretty much impossible with the mud-slinging of the well known candidates and the ignoring of the unknown candidates.

    I have no idea if this guy is any good, but I know he is near the bottom of the forecasts, mainly because no one has heard him speak. I do know this: he does not kiss ass and take corporate donations, and he has decent taste in music.
