I really have to say that I was fuming the first time a friend of mine suggested I become the President of the United States of America. This was
about ten years ago that my friend, a self-proclaimed "psychic" suggested I would make an excellent candidate to become the one man that rules the
country through the system of checks and balances between what we know as the Executive Branch, Legislative Branch, and Judicial Branch. My friend,
being the nice woman she is, is around thirty years my senior,myself being thirty-six now, and at the time she suggested this I was around twenty-five
Knowing what I do about the United States Government
and the often corrupt practices
of the people who rule this country through bias, bigotry, and baleful neglect of our rights as citizens, at the time my friend had mentioned this I
got mad as Hell at her for suggesting such a thing.
You might be wondering why of course, I would see this as an insult like I did, and I will tell you, it is because knowing what I do of our Government
I would have to rub shoulders with some of the slimiest, sleaziest, and salaciously evil and vile people in the world in order to take this post
behind that podium with the Presidential Seal of the United States of America. Here's the kicker, and some of you might agree, and I am sure others
will disagree as well, that is your choice to do so freely here, I am not talking about rubbing shoulders with
, Hugo Chavez
or Kim Jong-Il
and the nasty, dictatorial, scumbag types that they represent, but I am instead
speaking about the people within our Government itself that I would have to rub shoulders with that would make me want to vomit more each time I look
at their face when I was forced to be diplomatic and shake their hands when I know they are siphoning off our political system to idiots in political
think-tanks, Lobbyist Groups, and and special interest groups.
To make matters worse, I know the President does not get to make his decisions based upon his principals, ethics, or morals, but has to represent big
industry, big business, and the military industrial complex, be a part of organizations like Skull and Bones, the Council on Foreign Relations, and or
the Mason's, and I have no desire to sink to those levels of depravity in order to become some bobble-head puppet dictator doing what those people
desire and represent instead of what the American citizens want for our beloved nation. I have been approached a thousand and one times by people on
the street to run as President of the United of America, or to the Secret Service, POTUS.
I know I am a man of strong moral character, strong ethics, and equally strong knowledge of how the Government is supposed to work, but we as citizens
are often short-changed by the people who would bypass our desires for the country, being forced to pick between the lesser of two evils as the saying
goes, when I believe if you are forced to pick between only two choices, you are not really getting a fair choice at all you are instead being forced
to pick between two candidates that were primed to take a role to keep the country separated between Republican's and Democrat's.
You see, to me when you have two choices, this is a moral, ethical, and psychological dilemma of a false dichotomy, that there are only two choices,
either good or bad, righteous or criminal, black or white, choose or do not choose. I know policy, procedure, and protocol as well as I know not to
fall into the trap of only having option A and option B.
I am neither a Republican nor a Democrat, I believe both of those parties are illusory in that they are both self-serving and not serving the
political, moral, or ethical choices of America, I am in fact a registered Independent as far as politics go, so why would I want to join either side
of that political drudgery and rule under a party I see on both sides of the aisle as people who do not care about this country because as you and I
both know an Independent will have more problems getting into the White House than I would have in shoving a cactus up SkepticOverlord backside. If
you have read any of my threads or posts here on this website you will know and understand that I do not believe in big Government, which I see as a
waste of resources, I do not believe in hiding criminal actions through the guises of "terrorism" in "secret evidence"
, nor do I believe
our rights should be stripped, so how would I even get to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to begin with and not end up like John F Kennedy who was killed by
the Federal Reserve to keep from having its power stripped and the event blamed on patsy?
It must amuse my friend to torture me by suggesting I become someone I see as nothing more significant than a peon ruled by a hand up his butt, and
the strings of power held aloft by the corruption of the system in place which I believe has not served our nation but only failed our citizens in a
lack of being held accountable to the injustices by previous Administrations.
For those on this website who have suggested it to me, I do not see your suggestions as insults, for you know I want the right things for our country,
but I believe my friend thinks that I would want to be submissive in some cocoon of insular corruption, instead of actually ruling this country as a
man of integrity, the suggestion is to rule it as a benevolent tyrant through subjugation of the dominant will of those who would cast aside our
Constitution and strip our Rights that were hard won and even harder fought for.
I am not someone to sit behind a desk nor stand behind a podium, I am a man of action, to used to being in charge, and leading from the front, taking
on any enemy who comes against me or those I love, or those I have vowed to protect and serve in whatever manner and in whatever way I have, it would
be a difficult transition for me to just talk about doing the right thing, instead of actually getting up and doing it myself.
