GS, your memory is at least as good as mine, and I remember such candidates back at least as far as the late Harry Browne. (L.P. presidential candidate, 1996, 2000) Mrs. Tec and I were honored to attend a small candidate dinner with Mr. Browne in 2000.
Sad to say, the average American answered, “no” to his Great Libertarian Offer, “Would you be willing to give up your favorite federal government program if it meant never having to pay income tax again?” I don’t know if he could have accomplished that or not, but it seemed worth a try at the time.
But then, to pile on the insanity, Boobus Americanus also said, “No!” to Dr. No, as well.
