John McAfee For President

Font Size:

This November, you’ll be told that you need to choose between a criminal and a lunatic. Why not vote for a candidate who’s arguably both?

Heat Street:

His kitchen cabinet is made up of a former hooker who is also his wife, a security guy, and himself. He has made, and lost, a lot of money. He believes the system and the establishment are badly flawed. He is a self-styled liberator of women and he loves the camera. Before you start thinking, “oh those media types, so out of touch, with their simplification of what’s going on in the country,” chill a bit. We are talking about a guy called John McAfee.

Well… why not? Could he really be worse than any of these other creeps?

Brian Doherty at Reason Magazine talked to McAfee this week, and it produced what may be my favorite political quote of all time:

“It suddenly became clear to me [last September]: I could become president. Do I want that? Not really. Would it help me? I don’t know. Will it help the country I love? Yes, and here we are. People ask, ‘How are you gonna do that?’ and I don’t have a fucking clue. I just know I will.”

Isn’t that refreshing? The other candidates pretend to have all the answers, when they obviously don’t even know the questions. This guy tells you right up front that he has no idea what he’s doing. He doesn’t pretend to be anything he isn’t. He doesn’t want to run your life. Hell, he can barely run his own.

McAfee’s wife isn’t sure about his campaign. Even his own running mate isn’t sure about his campaign. I’m definitely not sure about his campaign.

And that’s why he has my support.

As McAfee says: “The beauty of insanity is that they don’t have to like you.” I like that.

Forget #MakeAmericaGreatAgain. It’s time to #MakeAmericaLeaveYouAloneAgain. McAfee 2016!

P.S. Say what you want about the guy, but at least his ads aren’t boring.
