Gravel: Am I in the wrong world?

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Former Alaska Sen. Mike Gravel said he thought he was treated unfairly in the two previous Democratic presidential debates, but that he was satisfied with the format of Thursday's forum.

The long shot presidential candidate said he doesn't understand why other candidates get more time to talk during presidential forums, because "they made the judgment to go to war."

"Am I in the wrong world?" he said. "Am I so bright I see everything differently?"

    Gravel is a brilliant and moral leader and candidate. He is right that the War in Iraq and the War on Drugs are wastes of millions of valuable lives and trillions of valuable dollars. I don't know how we would have a graduated sales tax though. A better idea would be a graduated tax on net worth, going down to zero tax below a certain net worth. Simple. Otherwise, he is right on and genius and far outshined the others tonight!! None of the others had the guts to oppose the War on Drugs. Shifting the emphasis to rehab still allows for criminal sentences for non-criminal behavior. And allows cops into our homes and lives for no good reason. Big Brother is alive and well in 2007!!! And Mike Gravel (and Ron Paul too!) are the only candidates who have the guts to end his reign and abuse of us all!!

    Sadly, he is in the wrong world. From Socrates to Mark Twain to Gore Vidal, those who see beyond the rhetoric of the masses are a minority.
