Did you read my last post? The one entitled
Well, I received the following from a fellow Civil War reenactor (I did modify it slightly):
I HAVE DECIDED TO BECOME A WRITE-IN CANDIDATE.
HERE IS MY PLATFORM:
(1) English is the official language; speak it or wait at the border until you can.
(2) We will immediately go into a two year isolationist posture to
straighten out the country's attitude. NO imports, no exports.
We will use the 'Wal-Mart' policy, 'If we ain't got it, you don't
By the way, this includes importation of Canadian garbage that they say they have no room for.
(3) When imports are allowed, there will be a 100% import tax on it.
And no immigrants allowed to enter for a three year period.
(4) All retired military personnel will be required to man one
of our many observation towers on the southern border.
(six month tour) They will be under strict orders not to fire
on SOUTHBOUND aliens.
(5) Social security will immediately return to its original state.
If you didn't put nuttin in, you ain't gettin nuttin out. The
president nor any other politician will not be able to touch it.
(6) Welfare - Checks will be handed out on Fridays at the end of
the 40 hour school week and the successful completion of
urinalysis and a passing grade.
(7) Professional Athletes --Steroids - The FIRST time you check
positive you're banned for life.
(8) Crime - We will adopt the Turkish method, the first time you are convicted of
stealing, you lose your right hand.
There are no more life sentences.
If convicted for murder, you will be put to death by the same method you
chose for your victim; gun, knife, strangulation, etc.
(9) One export will be allowed; Wheat, The world needs to eat.
A bushel of wheat will be the exact price of a barrel of oil.
(10) All foreign aid using American taxpayer money will
immediately cease, and the saved money will pay off the
national debt and ultimately lower taxes. When disasters
occur around the world, we'll ask the American people
if they want to donate to a disaster fund, and each citizen
can make the decision whether it's a worthy cause.
(11) The Constitution of the United States will be followed as our forefathers meant for it - not the bastardized version it has become.
(12) All politicians must be American born and bred. No more socialists like Shwarzenegger or Granholm pushing their foreign beliefs upon us.
Sorry if I stepped on anyone's toes but a vote for me will get you
better than what you have, and better than what you're gonna get.
Thanks for listening, and remember to write in my name on the ballot in November..
