Money, Johnson said, was lacking in supply in 2012. He pointed to Ron Paul’s candidacy as part of the reason his campaign fell short of its goals. “He ran again in 2012 and he literally sucked all the money out of the room,” Johnson said. And where were the pot smokers? “We really thought, last cycle that, 100 million marijuana smokers, man, each one of them has to give me a dollar and we’ve got the money twofold,” he explained. “Well, that didn’t happen at all. Zero. Just zero.”

“If you can’t raise money,” Johnson offered, “why do it?”

I like discussing lots of stuff that has happened in the past (the Civil War is over.  Do you wish to prohibit discussing it further?).

I'm not afraid of trying to learn new things gleaned from debriefings over past events, like the RootsCamp event that I posted about.  Aren't you curious about how future campaigns might be run, and how the things national campaigns emphasize and spend money on is evolving?

If you are unhappy with our current election process, I think it would be even more incumbent upon you (no pun intended) to learn all you can about how the beast you hate functions so that you might have a better chance of slaying it, or revising it to better suit your vision of how democracy should function.

You cynics who lament our borken bipartisan political culture should be ecstatic over the Ghana elections.  Your nipples should be exploding with delight!

They have several political parties, and one unaffiliated "independent candidate" running for office, for a total of 8 candidates for president.

We're not cynics, we just wish we didn't have an oligarchy that only allowed two slightly-differing views to compete for votes.

Good for Ghana. And please explain why having 8 candidates for president is a bad thing.

Two listeners, apparently.  Probably not in the Forums, though, - especially not this "bad penny" of a thread.
