Almost nonexistent - I don't recall ANY Libertarian candidates for me to vote for on my ballot beyond Badnarik.

    I voted Libertarian for Governor of Missouri just out of protest, but the Libertarians in Missouri are slightly insane.
They're ALL a little insane. ;-)

    Do you have any sane candidates there?
The Green candidates would actually knock on our door (which often meant they were waking me up) until I put up a little sign next to the doorbell. It ran along the lines of "Whatever your cause or party, our minds are made up - please don't waste your OR our time" and darned if people didn't stop ringing the bell after that.

Saturday I'm going to start doing MY door knocking, telling people that it's beyond ten days after the election and they're now in violation of the law, and to take their damn signs off their damn lawns, because I believe in CENSORING THE EXPRESSION AND THOUGHTS OF OTHERS. (In reality, I will spend my Saturday staying inside and not caring too much.)

Two issues here. First, the constitutional limit is 35 years old - and I am thinking I noticed you're under that, but by the next election, maybe not.

The second:

Currently, Title 8 of the U.S. Code fills in those gaps. Section 1401 defines the following as people who are "citizens of the United States at birth:"

Anyone born inside the United States
Any Indian or Eskimo born in the United States, provided being a citizen of the U.S. does not impair the person's status as a citizen of the tribe
Any one born outside the United States, both of whose parents are citizens of the U.S., as long as one parent has lived in the U.S.
Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year and the other parent is a U.S. national
Any one born in a U.S. possession, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year
Any one found in the U.S. under the age of five, whose parentage cannot be determined, as long as proof of non-citizenship is not provided by age 21
Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is an alien and as long as the other parent is a citizen of the U.S. who lived in the U.S. for at least five years (with military and diplomatic service included in this time)
A final, historical condition: a person born before 5/24/1934 of an alien father and a U.S. citizen mother who has lived in the U.S.

You qualify, Candidate CRZ. Ask Kim if it's OK to come out and play. They need a replacement for Badnarik and I am SURE you can get more votes than him.

Keep the hair.



Now, is it ok for me yell THEATRE! in a crowded fire?

    I was glad when Bush won in 2000 because I knew I'd get to keep more of my money than with Gore, and I think time proved me right there. By default, I'm glad Bush won in 2004... for the exact same reason.



How much more money are we really talking here though? I don't know about you, but I'm lower middle class (if that is even a class, take home pay is around 24,000 so I might just be lower class, but whatever). Other than the $300 dollar rebate Bush handed out what seems like eons ago my paychekcs actually seem lighter than before. I agree that more money in my pocket is a good reason for my vote, I just didn't see either guy really doing that for me ... Now, whatever happened to Steve Forbes and his flat tax?

My other question is how do you feel about Bush being able to name 1-3 judges this time around?

I believe they said that after the LAST election, so I'll believe it when I see it.

The marginal tax rate on the first $7,000 of income declined from 15% to 10%. This alone would save you $350. Obviously, if you have kids, reported investment or dividend income, had tuition or other education expenses, work as a teacher, etc. then your tax savings would be greater.
