Could you see yourself running for political office in the future?

Yes. I absolutely LOVE politics! Though I'm learning now that i like the philosophical part of politics rather than running, but i still would love it :)

Yes but only at the state level after I move to NH as part of the free state project

Local, maybe. This is a very conservative district for statewide.

You'll have to defeat Money when he goes up for reelection.

I have a relative in politics.
It's enough for me.

I think you would be good. An honest politician would be a nice change.

It's not for me but I appreciate the kind words.

You know what an honest politician is? An easy opponent.

Unfortunately. But only because I really want to help bring about good in the world.

And then I realize I'd want to slap my coworkers.

Not a chance, I have no interest in being involved in politics. The amount of corruption pisses me off way to much honestly.

All the more reason...

The only way to get rid of the corruption is to replace it.

More importantly, veritas, is it true your identity was taken for a few days? How did it happen?

It was my fault. I had a dumb moment. Let's not get into the embarrassing details. Never multitask while Show of Handing was the lesson from the Great Username Incident of 2013.

Identity theft on SoH. I didn't hear that.

Tom - it happened to Beachbum. He's now livefree because a guy is posing as Beachbum

TomM

He used to be livefree83 then beachbum83. He cannot prevent anyone from being beachbum, I see that name exists. I don't follow him so I cannot see what happened.

Just weird when someone takes another's ID on here.

True, some names are very similar but when you choose a name you cannot know I looks similar to someone else's name.

You don't want me to run for office. And I have no plans to do so

Not a chance. I wouldn't want the position; the public wouldn't want me.

OH, I don't know. You do have a few followers. If that's any indication.

Meh. I've had friends who ran for city council & stuff like that. And won. (Grand Rapids, Michigan, for one.) I don't think being a lying scum bag is a prerequisite for local politics.

Dog: you don't have to be a scumbag to run for office, you have to be a scumbag to get elected.

Maybe running, but certainly not getting anywhere.
