http://www.plunderbund.com/2007/09/25/three-more-really-independent-candidates/ OK, this is so incredibly out there, I had to share. An ostensibly fascist (what, the GOP isn't fascist enough?) candidate is running for the Presidency for at least the third time. "Director" Jack Grimes. One of my co-bloggers somehow stumbled across him. His purpose statement: "The United Fascist Union exists to promote a revival of the Republican Commonwealth of Imperial Rome and stand against liberalism, public corruption, decadence and Democracy in all the evil forms they manifest themselves in." From his statement of candidacy: "To correct the flaws in modern society the United Fascist Union recommends: Halting the monopolies on utilities; imposing a strict censorship on the press; halting urban sprawl; and enacting rules of public conduct which police would rigidly enforce." Perhaps most interesting, one of his supporters shows up to defend him in the comments (I'm sure she'll be here before long). This was just too good not to share with the community here.
