One or two people, ok only one, have called for me to run for president of the United States of America.

I cannot ignore the wishes of my constituent.

I realize that it is early to announce my candidacy for the Democratic nominee for president in 2008, but I need to get a head start in fund raising, as my positions may not generate many dollars amongst the global military industrial corporatist crowd.


I will start my candidacy with a very simple plank of my platform.

Americans do not torture. Americans do not torture anyone in any form, or in any way.

This is the way I perceived our country as a child. It was very simple. We were the good guys. We would never torture anyone. Simple.

Some people want to cloud the issue.

No. As president, I will clarify this issue.

THE UNITED STATES STANDS BY THE GENEVA CONVENTIONS 100% WITH NO QUESTION.

I voted not sure, but maybe if you torture me I'd know for sure.

Pam (the prospective first lady) and I just had quite a conversation about the number one issue.

Her thing is health care. I agree.

Health care in this country is a wreck.

As president, I would do everything in my power to institute a national health care plan.

I would look at the national health care plans of socialist countries like Canada, Sweden, Norway, ect.

We would put forward a national health care plan based on the best aspects of the successful plans implemented in those countries.

We even came up with an FDR sounding name for the program. The name of our plan will be:

Health Insurance For Americans

HIFA

To what do you object to?

Who knows, I may agree with your objection(s).

Perhaps we could discuss your objection(s).

You know shoeless, I don't seem to be able to find where the term "object" is defined as how it is used in this form.

Maybe I should write, I won't subject myself to conscience elecutions, I mean elections.

Issues to be fixed in order of importance.

1. It is time for this country to stop interfering in the political situations of other countries If a country is allied in our goal for the betterment of all mankind and would like our help, then as long as it is not in opposition to international law, we will help willingly. It is time for this country to stop manipulating other governments. It is time for this country to lead by example. Time to get ALL of our troops home. No other action will make this nation safer.

2. It is time for this country to bring back the work to where it belongs. This outsourcing has got to stop. It is time to replace the tariffs on imports in order to make this countries products more desirable. These new trade agreements are not only unfair to this country, they are unfair to the other people of other countries who are involved who do not have the protections in place that this country has. The only people these trade practices are benefiting are the corporate elite. By doing this, we will not only be able to put our country's people back to work, we will be better able to afford the social programs that must be in place for the benefit of all of America.

3. It is time to revamp this tax system so that it is equal to all. My suggestion would be to get rid of this current tax system altogether and replace it with a % flat tax on all income earned. NO BREAKS ON ANY INCOME/PROFIT EARNED, be it a corporation, a small business, or a working person. No more breaks. In doing this, we would be able to lower the tax rate to a more affordable level for all involved. More research would have to be considered on this, but this is what I believe to be true.

4. It is time for laws to be put in place that prevent this government from looting this county's wealth. From now on the money will be spent on what it is allocated for. This government has been looting it citizens for too long.

5. It is time for this country to take the healthcare of all of its citizens seriously. With the 1,2, and 3 implemented, this should be able to be handled with ease.

6. It is time for this country to fix the deteriorating school system. Once again, with 1,2 and 3 implementes, this should be able to be handled with ease.



This is just a start for consideration, anyone want to add anything else?

7. It is time for this country to put a serious effort into the research of alternative energy. With 1,2, and 3 implemnted, we should be able to afford to do some real research in this field.
