Iceland has a new President and he is anti-establishment !!

Mr. Gudni Johannesson decided to run for president after the now famous Panama Papers leaked out.

Apparently some left-over Icelandic globalists were named and the Papers even forced the PM to resign !!

Maybe Iceland gets away from the EU soon too !!

Political novice wins Iceland presidency with 39 percent

History professor Gudni Johannesson won Iceland's presidential election after riding a wave of anti-establishment sentiment, final results showed Sunday, although the vote was eclipsed by the country's eagerly-anticipated Euro football match.

The political newcomer, who won with 39.1 percent of votes, was trailed by businesswoman Halla Tomasdottir, also without party affiliation, who took 29.4 percent, according to results announced on public television channel RUV.

Johannesson only decided to run for the presidency after the so-called Panama Papers leak in April which detailed offshore accounts and implicated several senior Icelandic politicians, including the prime minister who was forced to resign.

I think y'all have overlooked the relevant part.

He decided to run in APRIL!!!

...and WON!!

No 2 year drama, no primary's, no long drawn out slug-fest of MSM BS.

Now why can't we pull something like that off? Less money spent, less fundraising, less 'Candidate Fatigue".
Outright we should put a reasonable cap on spending. Everyone gets $500,00 and figure out how to make it work.
No PAC's, no begging from donors. No being able to save any monies after the election.

Let them take buses and actually talk TO people instead of AT people.

I can dream can't I????

I was thrilled to see this news a few days ago. He's just a regular guy who entered the race a month before winning. Now novel!! I will try to keep tabs on what happens.
