I've worked with Jason, and he is an intelligent, well-spoken guy. He has a passion for teaching and for the students' well being in and outside of the classroom. He'd do a wonderful job!

Newsflash, 3:36 - Liberal & libertarian are not the same thing.

Jason Jordan is not a cookie-cutter Libertarian, Democrat or Republican; he thinks for himself. I don't always agree with his views, but I do always admire his intellect.

I teach with him & he is the most knowledgeable 24-year old I've ever met. I don't know how someone that young has had the time to acquire the amount of knowledge he has and has read as extensively as he has.

We are very lucky to have him at DHS. He has tremendous political & personal integrity. I can only wish that politicians were all like him in that respect.

You would think that he learned a lesson from Ron Paul.

To re-emphasize the openinging statement of 4:09, "liberal" and "libertarian" are NOT(!!) thesame thing.

They are, in fact, pretty much the opposite. "Libertarian" beliefs are essentially what "conservatism" originally meant; to-wit: minimal government involvement in the personal lives of its citizens.

Libertarians are therefore opposed to BOTH the modern liberal call for government management of economic issues to achieve social engineering goals AND to the modern conservative call for government sanctioning of issues of personal choice and promotion of religion.

I try to vote for at least one or two libertarian candidates in every election, just to give them a pat on the back for trying.

I also teach with him. He's an intelligent young man much beyond his years.

He'd be an excellent choice.

Meet him before you make your decision.

Keep your heads in the sand asshats, and keep lapping up the clabbermilk the Demicans and Republicrats keep regurgitating on the sidewalk. Traditional politicians have a vested interest in crippling education as an uneducated electorate will never challenge the status quo.

The best thing about democracy (or representative republic for the more educated among you)? The voters and non-voters alike get EXACTLY what they deserve. Ponder that while you belittle someone that actually wants to improve government through public service. Nevermind, I'm sure MTV's house of pain, or American Idol is on - or you could surf the web...I'm sure there are some pics of Tony and Jessica that you haven't yet seen somewhere.
