Got to Admit It's Getting Better


I'm watching the Libertarian Party of Pennsylvania's presidential candidate debate via livestream. Something happened a few minutes ago that I don't think I've ever seen before:

The candidates were asked to state their opinions on "intellectual property."

Of the four candidates participating, two -- Darryl W. Perry and Dr. Marc Allan Feldman -- came out as opposed to the whole stupid idea.

One -- Gary Johnson -- waffled but at least called for cutting down on the practice of the state granting monopoly privileges over ideas.

Only one of the four actually supported "intellectual property." Unsurprisingly, that one was patent attorney Derrick Michael Reid, who also supports forcing ten-year-olds to watch public hangings and thinks he can win all 50 states in November if nominated.

So, two against, one partly against, and one batshit insane.

Progress!
