Decision 3012

There was an editing mistake during the angry mob scene. I don't remember the exact words, but here is sort-of what was said and my response.

Senator Travers: I am from earth.

Angry Mob Member: Show us your long form earth certificate!

Senator Travers: What would it take to convince you people?

Me: Um, what they just asked for? You know, that earth certificate they just mentioned a few seconds ago.

About the ending... The "Mary Sue" senator wins the election. Then, he won't go back in time, and Nixon wins. When that happens, shouldn't that cause Travers to go back in time and win the election? But then, he won't go back in time again, causing Nixon to win. It is an infinite time loop. Captain Janeway says it best. "I hate temporal paradoxes."

Thief of Baghead

I think Calculon should have won. I believe he will be back. Many robots have a back up unit.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
