It's too bad that the Constitution prohibits Naturalized citizens from running for President. I wonder if we could make a one time exemption and draft Kim du Toit?
After reading his essay on compremise, part 1, it's clear to me that he is a person that could bring sanity back to the political discourse of the country.

Kim is a natural teacher of plain common sense pertaining to the human condition. Here's just a taste:

"Politics, as the old saying goes, is the art of the compromise, and it’s absolutely true, even though that compromise sometimes sticks in the craw.

Socialistic statism is horrible; so is unfettered capitalism. The first political system suppresses human nature; the second exacerbates it.

Somewhere between the two lies peace and prosperity."

As most of my readers know, I'm of the far right side of the abortion issue, I guess you could have termed me an "absolutist", in Kim's terms, yet I still have grave reservations about what the struggle over abortion is doing to our society.

Kim has proposed a compremise in principle on both sides of the issue that could end a great deal of the struggle. It's one that, as an absolutist, does stick in my craw, yet the acknowledgement of the realities involved make it a fair compremise for both sides.

Go read it all. I can hardly wait for Part 2.
