Who do you hope is our president in 2013?

Just taking a poll.
I'm a Ron Paul man, myself. I think he's the only man who actually has a chance to take this country out of the nose-dive we're in and get us back on course. (Edit: I like Gary Johnson too, but right now the momentum is behind Ron Paul, comparatively speaking).

Edit: I just realized I forgot to include Rick Perry. Moderators, do you have it in your power to add Rick Perry to the poll?

I hope to not be drawn into anything political here because politics is expressly not desired.

...you need to 'add' the selection: MUD.

...because, nomatter who it is, their name will be "mud" eventually (wink,wink)!

...this is because we don't actually select the "best" candidate, but rather the "least objectionable" candidate from the political "cess pool."

I hope I didn't break any rules. It was not my intention to start arguments which is why I included Barack Obama and all the GOP candidates and did it in poll format.

This thread would be interesting if it would stay in Poll only.

But it won't. :/

Presidents are boring! Benevolent dictators rule! Thread locked!



Let's talk about efficiency instead of politics. Or anything except politics. (OK, maybe not religion.) Thanks!
