Having control over the catch-all account (incidentally, routed straight to Gmail), I get to see a lot of email at the Badnarik campaign. A lot of them we respond to personally, but some of are pretty off the wall. Take this example that we received from a lady in Fayetteville, Arkansas. I’m tempted to think this is a joke, but it’s a wry and clever one if it is:
I was looking through your positions on diffrent issues at vote-smart.org and have a few questions. I wonder if you could mail me some info on the Libretarian party. I like most of what I read; however it seems a little radical.I would like to know how you plan to make this work…take education for examle, if the government doesn’t provide education I’m worried that people won’t get an education and then it will cost us in unemployment and welfar. I realize you suggest we do anway with both of these but then what happens to the people who really need a little help sometime. I think a better plan would be to treat welfar as a lone and let citzen recieve welfar for a maximum of two years then garnish there wages (or the equivelent) until it is payed back with a low intrest rate. Anyway will you please send me some info.

Someone explain to me how the government’s plan has been doing well if this is the level of ability it churns out.
