Hey there, Interweb-Land, Ron Paul here. Maybe you know me from seeing my name on thousands of highway overpasses across the land. Perhaps you recognize me from my scintillating fifth-place finish in Iowa, or my breathtaking YouTube productions. You might also be familiar with my millions of loyal followers who post angry responses in all-caps to any blog post that mentions my name.
What’s that? You don’t recognize my name? That’s because the liberal media is afraid of me and my suspiciously well-organized grassroots campaign, so they never mention me among the other Republican candidates. If you don’t believe me, just listen to my spirited rebuttals on CNN, Fox News, C-SPAN, Good Morning America, The Today Show, A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila, and three dozen other programs.
Fact: I have a blimp! No other candidate in either party has any sort of dirigible. Mike
Huckabee used to be zeppelin-sized, but I don’t think that counts.
But I’m not here to talk about outmoded forms of air travel. I’m here to talk about the BCS, which is in desperate need of a Ron Paul makeover. Just like our great nation, college football’s bowl system is a mess wrought by bureaucrats and meddlesome eggheads and their stupid computery computers.
When Ron Paul takes over, all computers in the nation will be destroyed, and I will give out free Common Sense Thinkin’ Caps to every citizen. I will also not allow evolution to be taught in schools, unless all science teachers doing so follow every statement about this theory by yelling BULLSHIT.
The BCS is just like the income tax: nobody’s happy with it, but nobody’s got the guts to do anything about it. Except guess who? That’s right, yours truly, the Paulinator. No, please, hold your applause until I’m finished.
My solution: tear down the whole damn thing. But don’t start over. Just let the schools stomp around in the rubble and let them figure it out. How about, everybody play everybody, all the time! Or play the same team over and over! If Michigan wants to play Ohio State three times a week all year, let ’em! Oregon can play itself for all I care. Hell, they got enough uniforms for seven teams.
Eventually, the glorious free market will decide who’s champ, without the expense and fuss of a newfangled bowl system. You see, Americans are frontier people. Things run best in this country when we let ’em run wild. Who can do their job with the nosy NCAA or federal government waggin’ its finger at every gosh darn thing?
Say you’re a big agribusiness company, and you wanna save some dough by feeding Styrofoam peanuts to your poultry. Or you’re a toy company and you feel like using some delicious lead paint. Guess what? You can’t, ’cause the dang ol’ government says you can’t.
But when Ron Paul is supreme executive, I mean, president, that won’t be a problem, ’cause we won’t have an FDA or an FTC. In fact, we won’t have any office that can be spelled in all capital letters. Probably do away with that stupid Supreme Court, too. All we need in Washington is me and enough Congressman to field a softball team.
I’m sure there will be some unscrupulous companies that’ll do crazy stuff, like slap Gerber’s labels on sulfuric acid and sell it as baby food. So you, as a consumer, can choose to not by caustic chemicals for your infant. You vote with your dollar, see? And you’ll drive the no-good-niks outta business, leaving only righteous capitalists standing.
Unless the sulfuric acid guys buy out all the other baby food companies. Or they pay off enough newspapers and networks so you never hear about their sulfuric acid. But hey, that’s the free market. Don’t like it? Go to Cuba, commie.
I’m sure my BCS solution will captivate the nation, just like my solutions for Washington have taken root in the political consciousness. Why, here’s unsolicited testimony from a concerned citizen.
LAUPNOR: IF YOU WANT TO KEEP THE BOWL SYSTEM YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE CONSTITUTION ALSO THE IRS IS ILLEGAL AND EVERYONE WHO DOESN’T THINK SO SHOULD BE BURNT AND TORTURED AND TIM TEBOW IS NOT MY HEISMAN WINNER. HOOK EM HORNS!
I like the way LAUPNOR thinks!
