      Hmm... I like the smell of idealism in the morning.

      ;D I'd vote for him if I could.

      So I'll just contribute in another way: http://www.actblue.com/page/lessig08

        What's his platform? What's his position on the issues? I couldn't find an Issues link on the first page, so is this another campaign about how well you cry in front of the cameras, or how what we need is "change" but without any details about what that actually means? If that's the style of campaign he'll run, then he should be a natural for the Presidency, where actual principles are the enemy of winning.

          I'll agree that this country needs some serious political change. It's rare now that a politician actually does something that is in the best interests of this country - I blame lobbyists for this.

            You and I are lobbyists. The only difference between us and the guys in DC is that we're more limited in resources and can't influence a representative as much.

            But imagine if we didn't have representatives: Who would the lobbyists lobby? They'd have to lobby us! And we could lobby each other.

            Representational government is obsolete, a system designed for a time when long-distance travel and communications were slow to non-existent. Now we can flash our wishes to the far side of the world in less than a blink of an eye. Who needs representatives in that situation?
