[ UPDATE: Thanks for the link, Glenn!
Reviewing this piece, maybe I come off as kind of single-issue where energy is concerned. In addition to one with a serious energy policy, I could also get behind a candidate who recognizes that the solutions to our health care and higher education bubbles lie in automation (although the latter seems to be taking care of itself) and that 3-D printers are about to redefine the economy.
The solutions are there; we need leadership capable of recognizing them. Ideally, we want someone who sees that it's time for the humans to take over. ]
A rare political endorsement here at the Speculist.
I don’t care what party they’re affiliated with and where they stand on virtually any other issue (within reason), in 2012 I pledge my full support to the presidential candidate who outlines the most aggressive plan for implementing thorium-based nuclear power plants. And I’ll go door-to-door for any candidate who hedges such a plan against the solar singularity.
