If you’re not satisfied with the current crop of candidates, there is another option. If I were running for president, my platform would be so simple a caveman could vote for it:
- Every bill Congress sends me must include its Constitutional authority or I will veto it.
- Every spending measure they send me must result in a 1 percent decrease in total federal spending without compromising the government’s Constitutional requirements.
- Yes, I will shut down the government. Congress can agree to my requirements or override me.
Write me in for ’12.
