Wouldn't it be nice if he actually had a chance?

I don't know much about Libertarian Presidential Candidate Michael Badnarik other than what's in this post, but, man! Wouldn't it be nice to live in a country where a guy like this had a shot at the presidency?

Here's what he as to say about schools
There is no clause in Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution that grants the federal government the authority to control public schools. The entire Department of Education is unconstitutional. The citizens of the United States used to be the most intelligent society in the world. Now we rank approximately 21st in the fields of math and science. Even if the Department of Education was legal, it is not doing its job. There are heated debates about posting the Ten Commandments in schools. Football players are prohibited from saying a short prayer before the big game. We do have to "separate church and state", but in trying to decide whether to keep "God or government" in the schools - we've picked the bureaucrats. How dumb is that?!
