Democrats are running on the premise that we should spend more money on everything. Especially free medical care, free education (indoctrination), canceling tuition debt, more immigrants and welfare for them, more subsidies for uncompetitive energy sources and cars etc. Help me out with even more examples.

My take on all this from our esteemed Democrat Members of Congress is that their intention is to increase tax revenues dramatically, collect said money, spout all kinds of wonderful goals all day every day (how could you NOT want to be a GOOD human being?!?!), launch committee after committee to study incentive programs, announce the launch of vast numbers of programs most people will never sign up for, and then: get extremely limited results; but results that can be touted, show excess tax receipts (cash already gone) and call the entire plan profitable and therefore a success.

It's time for @Rodent to run for Congress and light the fire of reality under these yahoos.  Can we get enough votes for Rodent?

I, Rodent, hereby announce my candidacy for Congress, despite my complete lack of qualifications, just like nearly every other congressman...err, or Congresswoman. Congress person. Whatever.

You know you lack qualifications.  Like Socrates before you, that makes you the wisest of the bunch.

Incidentally, admitting ignorance is also a prerequisite for learning, which is the primary skill a legislator needs.

As mthebold said.

Your ability to realize you don't know everything may actually make you overqualified...

Well, of course she's overqualified.  She's Rodent!  Demon Rodent to us mere mortals.

She's got my vote! Shoot, I'd even be her campaign manager even though I don't know anything about managing a campaign.....does that make me overqualified?

Praise Rodent! 

Also, is there a story behind this I missed?  I'm fully on board with praising Rodent, but I'd like to know how we got here.

Nah, we just love Rodent.  She drives a truck (with a gun rack), carries a gun, knows about oil and some would say she is beautiful.  Top it off with a moniker like Rodent, and that's all you need to know.  :)

I admit that I did not know that Socrates ever said that, and I cannot prove that he never said it.  From what I learned studying philosophy nobody would make such a poor translation, unless it was actually said this way, and I have never found any evidence it was.

Those are excellent qualifications. 

TIL Rodent is OilPrice's version of The Stig.

The phrasing is likely imprecise, but the basic idea is correct: the first step to wisdom is recognizing one's ignorance.

Whatever!

But making nonsensical comments and lying will not be of assistance in your journey.

Ah.  Allow me to introduce you to Urban Dictionary, the source for all slang definitions:

https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=TIL

The Stig was the driver on Top Gear, a ludicrous show.  His identity was never revealed while the show was running.  Instead, they built a mythology around him:

Thanks.  But Rodent did post a photo of herself some time back.  I believe she was chastising @Jan van Eck , pointing a finger at the camera and she said something like "Don't MAKE me moderate you!".  LOL!  A fine looking woman, I assure you, and I think Jan gets a little weak in the knees when it comes to this particular Rodent as well.
