    That would take someone else's job away, no? Also, it's mean to make inmates work, right?

    How would this effect unemployment?

    I can think of plenty of things that need doing that wouldn't "steal jobs".

    Digging ditches and laying wire to replace above ground power grids, gathering recycable materials from landfills, cleaning road sides...

    How about a Constitutional Republic?

    I can think of getting rid of two policies that would end companies outsourcing there jobs to Mexico and China.

    The NAFTA agreement and the GATT treaty.

    All these guys need to stop "contemplating" and start talking to each other. Start setting up donors and what not in various states and cities. Start easy. Start getting people in state legislators and as city mayors. Then try to recruit people such as the 50 listed below.

    I think some of the toss ups such as CO, NV, OH and VA would be more open to this as they seem pretty divided. You could siphon off votes from both sides pretty easily.

    In other news, Jesse Ventura announced that he will run for president in 2016.
    I'll be voting for him if Rand Paul continues his Republican ass kissing.
