Thursday night is the first Republican presidential debate of 2016. Only about 137 to go.
In analyzing the format of these debates, something occurred to me. Something that could potentially change our country’s energy needs for the foreseeable future.
In the early debates, one of the chief concerns was simply the number of candidates involved. They lined the entire stage in a semicircle of sorts, and complained that they had little time to speak.
Traditionally, over time, that lineup would shrink, allowing the more popular candidates more time to better explain their platform.
But that’s wrong. We need to reverse this thinking twofold. Instead of decreasing the number of candidates, we should increase the semi-circle until it becomes … A FULL CIRCLE.
“But then they’ll have even less time to talk!”
No, we simply let all of them speak at the same time, as normally happens anyway. The hot air beams spewing from their mouths will all meet at the center, forming a perpetually-renewing energy source, which can then be harnessed to power the entire nation!
So, let’s finally put these GOP debates to good use! Not sure it’s clean energy given the source, but … hooray, two birds with one stone!
