I am Gimmefootball400 and I am running for the Office of the Presidency of the United States on ATS for the Democratic Nomination. I will make it my
sworn duty to run a clean and excellent campaign. As most of you folks know by my posts on here, I am very polite. I'm like The Vagabond also, I too
would have voted for Pedro if I saw the t-shirts. What would be scary about me being elected is that I have a brain unlike a majority
politicians in Washington.
Ensure the safety and well being of every legalized citizen in my country without intruding on their privacy nor take away our freedoms that our
Forefathers set for us in the government to follow.
Sign an agreement with Mexican government as to where they must secure their side of the border.
Set aside millions to help fight hunger and poverty in the United States of America. That way more people will not be living on the streets of
Build the Armed Forces back up like it was before Clinton's second term in office without having to reinstate the draft.
I would only reinstate the military draft if this country was at a severe risk of attack from another country.
I would also make it a priority to find and prosecute all persons who were behind the Iraq War intelligence debochle and the invasion itself.
One of my priorities would be to require the railroads of the United States, even Canadian National and the Canadian Pacific, to help in the mass
evacuation of a particular area. First offense will result in a one million dollars per hour fine if the order is not heeded. Second, will be a thirty
fold increase per day. Third offense will result in a takeover where the length shall be determined by the Secretaries of the Department of
Transportation, the Federal Railroad Administration, and the Association of American Railroads. However, the Canadian rail lines will not be taken
over, but fined fifty fold after the thirty million per day.
Have a bill passed that sets up a Universal Health Care System that will cover every legalized citizen of the United States.
I would also do away with the lawless domestic spying that the NSA has been allowed to do under the current administration. This includes wiretapping
and the bugging of people homes and property. If I were to find out who authorized the wiretapping, they shall be charged with Treason and put in
front of a Military Tribunal.
Make 'Super Bowl Sunday' a national holiday.
Most of all I would go after corporations who ship jobs overseas to avoid the labor laws here in the states. This will include any corporation that
has blatantly shipped jobs overseas due to the Unionization of workers here in the States. Any corporation that has been found to be doing this will
be punished to the full extent of the law that the law will allow. First offense will be a lawsuit brought on by the government against said company.
That company must pay up a given amount within the time frame alotted by the courts. If the company does not comply, that is when it starts to go
downhill for the CEOs of that company.
Second offense will be the formal charging and conviction of CEOs as to where the evidence determines the severity of the punishment. Charges will
range from Money Laundering to Conspiracy. The money laundering charges, if convicted, itself carry a maximum of up to fifteen years inside a Federal
Corrections Facility. The conspiracy charges, again if convicted, would carry a maximum of up to fifty years in jail. On the third offense is when the
company is shut down by the Federal Trade Commission, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Securities and Exchange Commission. Also on the
third offense, the CEOs in charge of the company at that time will be tried in the courts.
I would also go after the so-called lobbyists and the so-called institutes in Washington. If any lobbyist were to be found to have been coherecing
money from companies for a political gain for a politican, the lobbyist will be in deep trouble. The lobbyist, if convicted, could spend up to sixty
years in a Federal jailhouse. Not only will that lobbyist be in trouble with the law, that politican that they were giving money to would be in
trouble. The certain politician(s) will be removed from their post, removed from their seat in either the House or the Senate, and not be allowed to
run for a government position again.
Don't think that the companies involved will get off with just a slap on the wrist, oh no. The company or companies involved will be subjected to
Congressional and Justice Department investigation. If the evidence supporting the case is overwhelming, it will be then that the case will be taken
to court. Whoever it is that has been found to have been giving these contributions will be punished to the full extent as to which the law will
Another thing I would do is to clean up our image in parts of Europe, Asia, and most definitely in the Middle East. That is to make up our alliances
that were lost due to the former administrations view on foreign policy. Any country that was pushed aside by them that wants us back by their side, I
will make that happen. Not only that, I will make it my duty to revive the alliances that were destroyed due to the former administration's views.
Why can't we be friends after all?
