Yup, that's right!  I'm thinking about running for president!  

Now, what could a 34 year old man be talking about, he can't be president!  Well, I'm here to tell you I turn 35 in 12 days, and I know I can win this.  

First off, I'm a TRUE Maverick!  I have ZERO connection to the Washington Machine, having never served in office.  Even once.  NOPE.

I did however, serve my country for 4 years, including a tour in Iraq with the 3d Armored Calvary Division.  

(More Qualifications on the flip)

I'm a single father with 2 kids, juggling child care, school and a below minor league internet show!  I have experience in 4 hours of sleep a night, and NEVER taking a vacation!  That's right, when other Presidents might go to Martha's Vineyard, I'll still be at the White House, working.

I will not make any pledges, and will never give my word if I don't know for certain I will back it up.  

Now, as far as foreign policy, I plan to end the wars the instant I get into office.  That's right! Instantly!  War's over, we declare victory and get out.  It'll be a bit expensive to get the boys home, I know, but it's cheaper than continuing the war.

Domestically, I have several things in mind.  First off, since I am used to living in poor circumstances, I will donate 75% of my salary as president to the national debt.  I mean, I get the white house, and right THERE is my major expense.  I mean, apart from buying food for the kids, I really won't need much, so I already have made 300,000 dollars for the US on my FIRST day in office.  Since transportation for the President is also covered, hell with it man, I have almost zero expenses.  With that 100,000 a year I can still look great for the cameras, don't worry about that one!

Now as far as taxing the rich and corporations go, I plan to tax the living hell out of them.   Seriously.  They will hate me, and they will TRULY not support me, so that's why I need your help folks!  None of this Faux-populism.

Let's see, as far as most policies go, I'm for gay rights, legalizing drugs and retroactively pardoning all drug offenses that don't have additional crimes attached, and heavy tariffs on non-US produced goods.  Yup, that's right.  Protectionist and Libertarian at the same time!  Your heads may explode NOW mass media!

Oh, and I will only appoint total liberals to the supreme court.  And if they're blocked by congress I will appeal to the American people.  Daily, until my hand-picked candidates are selected.  I plan to use the Bully Pulpit in a manner that makes George W. Bush look like a fifth grade maladjusted kid extorting lunch money.

So, I am your Primary Candidate!  That's right!  I am what we WANT to see in office!  Vote for me!  A candidate who truly represents America.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
