I'm both bored and disgusted with the steady stream of half-truths and outright lies from the presidential candidates. Since we are a pioneering nation and leaders in computer technology, why not run IBM's Watson for President?
Actually, there is a website watson2016.com promoting just that. They say:
"The Watson 2016 Foundation is an independent organization formed for the advocacy of the artificial intelligence known as Watson to run for President of The United States of America. It is our belief that Watson’s unique capabilities to assess information and make informed and transparent decisions define it as an ideal candidate for the job responsibilities required by the president..."
What do you think? Put Watson in the White House as a write-in candidate!
The biggest problem today is hearing the truth from politicians. How can they tell the truth? They need liberty to search for and to tell the truth. All their personal, family, group, and organization compromises restrain their ability to reveal the truth.
