A bunch of my friends in AZ saw him at or after the Super Bowl and said he was a really nice dude. I'm jealous.

Mr. Flame's stances on many of the issues are compelling, though I'm understandably concerned about both his thinking that Women's Rights is currently mostly just about "respect" and his lax attitude towards the separation of power. (“I'm President - I AM the Congress.”) But then, what can we really expect after the increases in the power of the executive during the Bush and Obama administrations?

While “Unlimited weed smoking” is an obvious winner as a campaign slogan for the millenials, it may leave too much of the white bread, boring demographic in the dust. Maybe in another four years. (Or maybe I'm just not willing to dream big enough. I mean, we can see which way the wind is blowing. Why not get out in front of it, even if it means a little smoke from our own joints will get in our eyes?)

As it is, I'm nervous about getting behind such an inexperienced candidate for the presidency itself, but would be open to either a Clinton/Flame or Sanders/Flame ticket.

A lot of people will joke, but I'm totally okay with this. "What about his qualifications?" They'll ask. Ok. But all of the other people had "qualifications" and the only thing they managed to do with them was bomb other countries, destroy the economy, and degress 50 years on women's issues.

True, but if I understand his platform correctly he actually doesn't want to further remove rights from women, which makes him quite progressive compared to the GOP field, especially considered alongside his "respect for women" concept--which certainly has some merit in and of itself considering the current state of affairs.

He would also ban dogs in restaurants and impose harsh restrictions on the big-footed.
Totally lost my vote. Dog-ist AND Foot-ist? Double deal-breakers.

To be fair, although i am wary as someone with huge feet, people who are super entitled and think they should be able to bring their dog EVERYWHERE because my dog is like totally different! need to get smacked the fuck down.

I have lots of experience in this area, formerly having been a barista in the basement of condo tower where the cheapest unit was over 1mil.

I also really don't look forward to all the nerdy white dudes who will endlessly go "lol commacho lol idiocracy was totally prophetic amirite?".

He should've run for president of FIFA.

Take a hit, then, after exhaling, say "yes, just now".
