Then let's ask the Whitehouse to come clean with it's informational resources from the NSA and CIA to discuss the technology that's available — clones, robotics, alternate realities, time travel, and space travel, now is the time the public deserves to know 'the truth' about why this technology is being suppressed, and trust the public is at a mature enough stage in it's development to handle this.

MakersDirector writes "And I quote:

How'd you like to have someone in office who: a) Admits their issues and shortcomings PRIOR to office (I'm often a pervert and am a recovering drug addict and love video games) b) Is currently unemployed and could USE this job to help others get jobs c) As a first act, would take away all gates and fences from the White House (like in the old days) and invite people to the 'front lawn' to hang out for bbq's and stuff... d) As a second Act not act like they knew everything and would ask Romney and Obama BOTH to be their Vice Presidents, like a traditional company you cant have just one, so why are we acting like there should be one here?

My campaign slogan is "Hindsight is 2020", referring to how I'll work to make time travel FREELY available to everyone by that year (clever, I know!). After all, we're all energy in a simulation. Why should playing and exploring be limited to 'those in power'...."
