All levels of governments make our lives miserable. People around the world do not trust their governments, politicians and administrations. Governments vast 80 percent of gross national income. We must elect intelligent internet Watson for president and for all kinds of offices in government. Building a reliable intelligent self-learning and self-programming computer will cost nothing compared to this 80 percent of vast around the world. We can do this by getting rid of our politicians around the world. They ruined our world. Politicians will fight back by their usual deception. With their buddies they will argue that such an intelligent internet Watson will turn against humans. That is not true. Intelligent is what intelligent does. Stupid is what stupid does. So arguing that intelligent will act like stupid is total stupid. You can expect such stupidity only from the stupid politicians who ruined our world. Just look around and see the terror, poverty, hopelessness, joblessness and corruption. You make your mind. Here is a news for you. Think about the Cost of Government. September 12-13 was the day to remember the vast of government and thinking ways of getting rid of these stupid politicians.
