Today I am announcing my candidacy for the Presidency of the United States.

The Presidency is the most powerful office in the Free World. Through its leadership can come a more vital life for our people. In it are centered the hopes of the globe around us for freedom and a more secure life. For it is in the Executive Branch that the most crucial decisions of this century must be made in the next four years–how to end or alter the war against Kratom, where the FDA, DEA, ATF, CDC and Big Pharma gains are threatening our very existence! And how to maintain freedom and order in the newly emerging need to advocate for oneself involving health care and the with holding of much needed medical care. To rebuild the stature of American science and education. To actually listen to doctors that know more than the congressional leadership, who accept PAC money from Big Pharna, Tobacco and Alcohol. To allow doctors to prescribe medicine instead of the DEA and the CDC. Congressional leaders whom dictate to the average American that which they do not understand and have no constitutional right to do so. To prevent the total collapse of our health care system. To prevent the decay of our cities from a misguided and totally dishonest war on drugs and a war on harmless plants and poor disenfranchised people. To do this without further inflation or unemployment, expanded economic growth benefiting all Americans, especially the poor and disenfranchised among us,and how to give direction to our traditional moral purpose, awakening every American to the dangers of the NSA, CIA and military industrial complex spying and manipulating it's citizens with false information and unaccounted budgets. This needs to stop. No more personal wars are to be waged by presidents with ego's larger than "Texas". These are the challenges that face us. But I see them as opportunities to allow Americans to feel safe and secure in their homes without being spied upon by the very government elected to protect the peoples 4th amendment rights. Opportunities confront us at every turn. But working together we, the people of this beautiful country, can take back our birth right. "While men inhabiting different parts of this vast continent cannot be expected to hold the same opinions, they can unite in a common objective and sustain common principles."

I also vow I will not accept one single dollar of PAC money. I will sign an executive order within my first 100 days in office abolishing Political Action Committees. These committees are sucking the life blood from America and killing what little is left of the middle class. Instead I will use my own money, a $10 a week allowance to fund my campaign. All donations will be welcome but there must not be strings attached or the demanding of favors in exchange. I also vow that within my first 100 days in office I will sign an executive order ending this horrifying, and failed war on drugs. The DEA, The CDC, The ATF, the FBI and FDA will be changed into programs that support the intervention and treatment for drug addicts. I also vow that all private prisons will be shut down and turned into drug rehabilitation facilities. I will sign an executive order that any and all elected officials whom own private stock in private prisons will be asked to hand in their resignations and special elections will be held to fill their vacant seats. "It is by a thorough knowledge of the whole subject that [people] are enabled to judge correctly of the past and to give a proper direction to the future."

These are among the real issues of the 21st century. And it is on the basis of these issues that the American people must make their fateful choice for their future. I have faith in the American people. Tell the American people the truth and step back and allow free enterprise to flourish. I will also sign an executive order within my first 100 days in office that the 1% that control the wealth in this country will have all assets frozen, regardless where they hide them, until they pay their fair share of taxes. Their personal property will have liens levied against these greedy myopic people who have no compassion for the average American. They only love our money and not the human beings with the money. “I can never consent to being dictated to.”

I believe that any aspirant to this important nomination should be willing to submit to the voters his views, records and competence in a series of primary contests. I am therefore now announcing my intention of filing in the New Hampshire primary and I shall announce my plans with respect to the other primaries as their filing dates approach. “It is easier to do a job right than to explain why you didn't.”

I believe that there is an historic function to perform in the winning of the 2020 election, comparable to its role in 1970. I intend to do my utmost to see that that victory is won. "The gratitude ... should be commensurate with the boundless blessings which we enjoy."

I have developed an image of America as fulfilling a noble and historic role as the defender of freedom in a time of maximum civil liberties violations of the American people. We must be courageous and persevere in regards to this image that I feel I must announce my candidacy. And to begin this campaign. “To be good, and to do good, is all we have to do.”

I will be naming my team from the members of ILK. I want the best and most educated and level headed people on my team. I'm naming ETC to be my campaign manager. He has never been afraid to tell me when I'm on the wrong side of an issue and I respect that. I also will be asking BigTexasFist to be on the team. We will definitely need Texas and I feel that his attitude, along with being a health care worker, will resonate across the south. I will also be asking Laurie to help me in the scheduling of events and the boiled chicken dinner fund raisers. I feel she demonstrates great talent and aptitude for administrative skills. Maybe we can spring for shrimp or crab puffs if money isn't too tight. I'll need to run this by Laurie. And I'm going to ask jayisk to be my advisor on transitioning the privatized prison systems into rehabilitation centers. This is a win situation for all involved in law enforcement. Nobody has to lose their jobs in these agencies. They just need to adjust their attitude from arresting people for addictive behaviors to helping them rehabilitate themselves. I also pledge that within the first 100 days of being in office if the main stream media is found to be working with and in cahoots with the government there will be heavy fines for the first offense. The second offense the news channel will be mandated to be taken off the air for 100 days. The third offense and the news agency will have their FCC license revoked for one year. Reporting the news is a privilege afforded by the government. It is not a right! "Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude."

I will be running as a LiberRepulicranDemacratarian. I would greatly appreciate your support. Together we can do this. We must put aside single issue voting for elected officials. It is not serving us well and has become a breeding ground of hatred among the electorate. One voice for one America. The time is now. If not now then when? I pledge my office will always be open to you, the American electorate. "Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for 'tis better to be alone than in bad company."




Robie

P.S. I hope I don't end up dead. Please forgive me in advance if this upsets anyone. I'm really writing this as an exercise of "what if". What if we had a candidate that really stood behind these things that I mentioned. I also want to emphasize that I'm writing this "tongue in cheek" so to speak. My hope is it gives a few people a good chuckle! After talking with ETC yesterday I started thinking "What if"? I hope you don't get upset but this is actually my attempt at humor with a bunch of truth thrown in. So all you Democratic and Republican congressmen, and congress women, have nothing to fear from me. But I have as much right to run for president as the next guy! I am not a lawyer. That's a big plus. It would be hard to run for president on a $10 a week allowance!

Robie, I have to confess.
I didn’t know that quote from Pierce until I looked it up. I had never even heard of him before that. :whistle:
But if you want a writer who plagiarizes everyone else’s great statements, then I’m your man. :-bd
