Messages From Three Conservatives. 2. Pat Caddell
Caddell has invented a make-believe politician named Smith who outpolls current voter favorites like Hillary and Christie simply by taking the position that the government is broken and both parties are out for themselves. Smith's plan is to clear the broken system and get it out of the way so that you, the people, not the politicians, can solve the nation's problems. Personally, I think the most attractive thing about Smith is that he's imaginary. I wish all politicians were.
Anyway, watch this discussion to get a fuller sense of Pat's ideas. He kicks in at about 3:35 though the whole thing is interesting. Definitely worth considering for those sick of the usual garbage. Which apparently means pretty much everybody except maybe Barack Obama:
