i think the stunt of running for president by stephen colbert is sick and disgusting. Its likely only a move by the illuminati to steal votes from Ron Paul, being that many of his fans are also colbert fans.

I hope people read this thread enough to know that in the past other candidates did the same thing. This is a well seen tactic by lying self consuming cultists bent on owning america..do not let them get there childish way.

Well I wouldn't worry too much about him as South Carolina won't let him run for President.

I would also highly doubt he is an 'illuminati' plant as he is a hard-core Libertarian.

If you can't tell he is sarcastic the whole time, then I don't know what to tell you.

He's a freaking comedian for gods sake.

What do you think Reagan was? We've had so many past actors as Presidents and Congressmen its not even funny.

Why couldn't an intelligent, well-versed, comedian be President?

The requirements for candidacy include being over 35 years old, being born in the US, and living here for a certain amount of time.

Has he not fit all of those requirements? If I was old enough I should be able to run for President too.

The only illuminati plants I see happen to be the mainstream candidates...And Ron Paul might be one of them unfortunately, as much as I don't want that to be true.

LOL. Seriously?

Am I the only one who sees this as a JOKE. He is a comedian. I think it is funny and I cant believe anyone really takes this seriously.

He is not really running for president. Its a joke. A Joke!!

I'm hoping that mastermind has piled a parody on top of a parody.

If not, God help us All!!

the illuminati?
ok, i've heard really ridiculous things on here, but this is just downright stupid
this is a man making a joke, nothing more or less. it would actually be illegal for him to run for president...

Having a comedian as said President in my opinion would be a step up from the golden spooned, national guard disserters we've had of late. At least Letterman could make us laugh when he announces he's getting out the KY.

I hear Joe Walsh was an illumanati plant as well, but the Eagles paid better.

I agree with the op of the thread on his point that he should have kept his nose out of the presidential race. Went too far in my book.

On the other hand it could be an interesting experiment that proves the masses are more interested in what a Black Box (Television) has to say then actual candidates themselves.

I agree. The fact that such a stunt would gain such exposure speaks volumes about the state of politics in America.

In response to the OP -

Remember - the ELECTORAL COLLEGE DECIDES THE PRESIDENCY, NOT THE POPULAR VOTE.

Your local elected officials cast the deciding ballots, the popular vote just helps give the heads of State an idea of what the people are looking for in a Presidential Canidate, and where we are as a Nation as a collective mindset.

I'm still writing in Colbert for President. My vote WILL make a difference, mainly because the world I'm working towards and hope to one day retire in isn't full of stuffy shirts with no senses of humor and radical misunderstandings about how the entire voting process works.

That was not a personal attack, btw - that was simply an overgeneralization on the issue as I see it.

*two cents*

Wouldn't that be like a double-negative, thereby making it a non-parody?

Apparently the OP wasn't around for the perennial Pat Paulsen candidacy....

Heh, the electors in the electoral college aren't elected by the people in any state that I know of. The only similarity is that each state gets as many electors as it has congressmen - they aren't the same people though.

In any case, I believe it was only one time, and only one elector that voted in opposition to the wishes of his state - and that was only to ensure that George Washington was the only unanimously elected president. Can't remember which election this was done in. But I still remember a little bit of my middle-school civics
.

The Colbert thing is so goofy and it's hilarious that he's been able to jerk the media around so much for this long. I don't think he'll be taking votes from Ron Paul because Ron Paul people seem to have tunnel vision in their unconditional support for him. Plus, since neither Colbert nor Paul will win the nomination of the Republican party, it matters not. Colbert may have a chance of winning the Democrat nomination, though, because that field is already full of clowns

I am pretty sure the candidates doublespeak the entire time.

At least Colbert is upfront about his bull#.

I'd much rather see a comedian as President rather than a politician. At least he hasn't been corrupted by Washington.

Let me think...Bought and paid for candidate, or someone who doesn't really want to be President in the first place?

I think I'd much rather have someone NOT wanting to be elected. That speaks miles for his/her character.

ok i digress...i dont watch him as i dont have cable. And sure hes a comedian, but at this stage, im not paranoid to trust very few in the public eye, especially when they command so much fame and people suckling off them for laughter, or whatever else. So to everyone who doubts my little remaining sanity (sarcastic, or is it) to eye him as a potential pre-placed mind control op is not crazy, just part of the game. Hey maybe hes just a funny guy, which he is. But that is what makes me suspicious, no one is "just" anything unless they sit on the couch all day watching people wax idiotic all day.

I'd have to take exception to the assertion of no one being "just anything" unless they sit on their couches...

The vast majority of folks are just what they appear to be. It would appear that you want to see conspiracies in everything, without having supporting evidence. Give me evidence, and perhaps I might give a second look at something. I'd love to hear your thoughts on Andy Kaufman.

Help me steven, "Ive created a monster".

Ok to all steven col"bert" fans i am sorry for any stupidity ive conveyed, in the heat of moments, i get a tad bit tense, its a stress issue because of things i cannot ever face without having a heart attack at, like being legally robbed by lame loosers who sell crappy cars as a super random scam or something and steal ten plus years and nearly 20Gs from them, and watch on top of this, my country fall in love with the tough guy persona, then letting socialist control freaks give them orders. Its insane at least once a day, given the things the media ignores.

Steven, if you read this, im sorry to have been so unprofessional. Im really not, well not that much.

I think Colbert is high-larious. And should be president at times. But then hasn't a cynical form of government been going on this whole time?
