->Lee Mercer Jr. was a 2008 candidate for the Democratic nomination for President of the US. To understand his platform one might first need to understand some facts about his background, and we’ll give it in his own words since his unconventional grammar makes a little hard to determine exactly what those main points are... In short, what he seems to be up to is thinking that [[TalkativeLoon he is really a robot and needs to take over the government as part of his program]]. In fact, everyone is controlled by the mind control program that created him. [[InsaneTrollLogic That’s why you should vote for him]]. Also, it is supposed to be payback time, it seems.\\\
He has already announced that he will be running again in 2016.
