I root for the Cleve Browns even though they have zero chance of winning the super bowl. Chance of winning doesn't come into play on this obsession - doesn't come into play when I vote either. I vote for what I want - I do not "settle"..

The goal this year is not to win its to get 5% of the vote so ballot access is not an issue in four years. Right up until about a month and a half ago the Libertarians were doing little if any campaigning. They were fighting court battles the GOP brought against them. And it was the same with the Green and Constitution partys to get on the ballot. Its hard to fund raise when you can't campaign…

Minimum wage it for minimum employees. A person should be able to work for any wage they want too without government interference.

What we need is a better voting system...like the Borda method. Then the 3rd party candidate most assuredly would have a chance....but for just that reason you'll never see it....the controlling parties not wanting a 3rd party to have any chance. Plus it's a bit difficult to count unless you are computerized. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borda_count

Proposal would divert funds to schools, limit data storage

If State Sen. Will Kraus gets his way, it could make it hard for Kansas City's camera system to continue. The city has already put enforcement of its red-light cameras on hold pending the results of a court challenge.

Drivers said they hope someone hits the brakes on the cameras for good.

"I think everybody, the first time they get one, feels a little bit violated," said driver Kathleen Jaros. "Like they have been tracked by Big Brother."

The cameras, which keep an electronic eye on some of Kansas City's most dangerous intersections, has some people seeing red.

Jaros said both times she was ticketed, she thought the lights were yellow.

"I think it's a money-making scheme, predominantly," she said. "I don't have a sense it makes the streets any safer."

Kraus has filed two bills for lawmakers in Jefferson City to consider. One would send any fines collected to local school districts and not city governments. He said automated traffic enforcement systems are an "untruthful revenue source."

His second bill allows cities to hold the data that the cameras collect for 30 days.
