Bloomberg vs Paul would be the best nominees in my opinion. If they got nominated I would finally be voting on who I want to be president vs who I dislike less.

Agree. And the more extreme someone's view, and the more empty and meaningless their life, the more time and energy they'll put into one or more social media "campaigns." The dark side of technology is that extreme voices of the rage-fueled and resentful fringes can be amplified infinitely, so they drown out the voices of the moderate folks who have better things to do.

What if...

How about this? Somebody like Rand Paul and Tulsi Gabbard or Mayor Pete team up as independents? So basically you get the Ross Perot AND Jill Stein effect to cancel each other out? I'd be in...

Since everybody depends on money, there is no such thing as "independence". In the end, everybody is "dependent" on something. If not money then pussies lols.

Thanks, WestRace, but not the point I was trying to make. Maybe I should have been more clear. In order to defeat the ever worse partisanship in DC, let's put up a team that is a little of both sides to lead. It could be a thing, and would solve the problem of D vs R...
Maybe we could just go back to being ALL American instead of so divided. That is what needs to happen to reel in the crazy train we are on. I only suggest this as a means to that end.

Of course I was joking, but I am not too far off since it always ends up like this.
