If you're keeping count, you know the present is certainly not ours.
The wealthy are hogging up all the money. Uncle Scam is a basket case that can't even run an honest election.
The entire economy is set up like a giant cattle ranch with us as the cows. The stupid bad guys are running free,
murdering us with bullets and drugs. The smart bad guys are running companies, selling us bullets and drugs.
We The People are working overtime, yet still picking which bills to not pay every month.
I'm writing this in January 2017, a week before Trump's inauguration, feeling like we are about to reboot the
first decade of this millenium. Reboot as in the bigger bolder faster turbocharged 4K HD on steroids
with a sparkling drop of retzin version! (in case you aren't getting it - that means bad. VERY bad.)
It doesn't take a genius to figure out that money in the electoral system is the problem.
It's bad enuff with giant corporations doing everything they can to squeeze us dry while ruining the planet,
but when money starts writing the rules we live by, eventually we wont be able to live at all.
Money has been the lifeblood of politics from the beginning, but generally speaking, it's been kept at a level.
Now that the party-of-the-rich has nearly complete control and the president himself is (presumably) a
multi-billionaire, job #1 for them will be to lock in the next and all future elections. Then we're totally,
completely and permanently screwed.
Do not make the mistake of thinking America can't possibly become an official oligarchy rather than just the
virtual oligarchy it is now. Those rich suckers can count. And they are counting on your apathy and inattention
to let their congressmen, senators, governors and Trumps tweek the levers just a little bit more without
any pesky watchdogs interfering.
Trust me, it'll be GREAT! You wont believe how unbelievable it will be, believe me! FANTASTIC trust me.
I, for one, do not trust them. I can count, and can see what this adds up to: they win, we lose.
My name is JO 753. I am running for President of The United States of America because I believe that
We The People still have a chance to own the future and I can help make it happen.
It's not enuff to talk about how bad the current administration is and say I can do better. It's too tempting to
pick up the weapons of party politics that forget the wisdom of together we stand, especially when you can
claim 'they started it'. No. 'Better than the other guy' is just an excuse to set a low bar. There has to be a
promise based on actual ideas, positive ideals, real goals.
Set our sights with optimism on the best we can imagine, not the minimum we can settle for.
Any fool can think up ways it can go wrong. Real leaders think up ways to make it happen.
If you've looked me up on the web, you may have gotten the impression that I am some sort of starry eyed
idealistic idiot-genius who doesn't know human nature so can't understand why his plans will never fly in the
real world. Or you may have a strong sense of true conservatism and feel that I'm a threat to those values.
I proudly say YES, I am past the leading edge of standard progressive policy. I say when facts & lojik are on
my side, I don't care if the rest of the human race says no. I say aim for the best future, the perfect solution,
the highest ideal because aiming for less will surely get you less.
The federal government is the 'brain' of the nation. It has to not only be cognizant of today's reality, but
both the risks and opportunities of the future for as far into the future as possible. If it fails, at best, we
will not realize our full potential. At worst, we will find our end.
The person with the job of directing the federal government must have the greatest level of intelligence,
forsight, empathy and imagination available to humans. With luck, it will be enuf.
