Hey Peter... do those on the Libertarianz' party list not also cast longing eyes on political offices...? (I ask this in a good humoured mildly ironic, not a nasty vicious, way LOL)

Or, as Douglas Adams said:

It is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it... anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.
