There is a politician that has really different ideas; ideas which have the potential to energize a marginalized sector of American voters with a candidate that is like no other. His name? Vermin Supreme. Mr. Supreme hails from Massachusetts and has been running for political office since the 1980’s, running on a platform of free ponies for everyone.

Don’t get too excited, though, as in true GOP form, the ponies Mr. Supreme promises are not just for fun- they’re for national identification purposes. That’s right. Your very own pony will serve as your identification pony and will be required to be on your person at all times.

Here is Mr. Supreme back in 2012 making his campaign promises to a New Hampshire crowd.

“A vote for Vermin Supreme is a vote completely thrown away”
