Meet Mr. Bob

Tampa has a local running for Governor. Yes, folks. Meet Mr. Bob.

I did some Googling and Mr. Bob is also known as Robert Wirengard. He ran for Congress and lost. He wishes to end federal income taxes and abolish minimum wage. Bob feels the latter drives jobs out of the country. I wrote before about how employment went up with minimum wage increases. In fact, low labor wages, keeps Americans away from farm and labor jobs. Unskilled migrant workers take these positions. How many people do you know want to pick oranges for 12 hours in the Florida heat for shitty pay. I did it for one day once (when I was 20) and it's a bitch.

Bob also believes in a flat tax and gay marriage. Short answer: he is a libertarian.
