A View of Politics

For those of you who wonder about my choice of presidential candidates; a moral from Douglas Adams.

"The major problem (one of the major problems, for there are several) one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them. To summarize; it is a well-known fact that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no accout be allowed to do the job."
