I know this will confuse many people, but it is worthy of serious consideration:
When Cynthia McKinney recently announced her candidacy, I was deeply moved and inspired by her bravery. We now have three people of high integrity running for President: Dennis Kucinich, Cynthia McKinney, and Ron Paul (in alphabetical order).
They are choosing to offer themselves as candidates in the Democratic Party, the Green Party, and the Republican Party, respectively. They have diverse backgrounds and focuses of interest, but they have one important commonality: they are dedicated to reversing the (quite deliberate) near-terminal tailspin that this country is in. They have consistently proven themselves to be strong, determined, and dedicated public servants of high caliber . . . and right now we need all the help we can get. Thus I urge you all to consider:
Dennis Kucinich, Cynthia McKinney, and Ron Paul would make a great triumvirate serving as President.
There are several reasons why they would be very effective in such a role:
- They would be able to deal with the current and coming challenges as a group. It has often been stated that “two heads are better than one” and right now three would be even better still.
- They would be able to make decisions quite easily as two votes in favor (or in opposition) would decide the result.
- They would each have the support of two equal partners and this is not going to be easy work.
- They would coalesce a wide range of diverse people . . . and right now we need all the unity we can get.
- They are three strong-willed, heart-based people who have enough humility and determination to see this critical phase through to completion, without having to worry about selfish, egotistical dramas playing out.
There are other good reasons to hire them as a trio, but I need not pontificate further, especially since I have been encouraging all of us—as a group—to use our minds and to come up with our own answers . . . and right now we need all the wisdom we can get.
It will take the efforts of all three of them to begin to accomplish the work that for the past year I have offered to do on my own—though of course I would be thrilled to have them as Vice-Presidents, taking over as a trio after my two-year contract was over. However I am neither wealthy nor famous (nor selfish) and thus have not garnered any consideration. So be it.
I will close by condensing the work that needs to be done into three very short, very simple words:
“Take the money.”
After all . . . it’s your money. Take all funds, assets, and property out of the control of the Federal bureaucracy and put the money and assets somewhere you can trust, i.e. in a locally-owned and operated State bank and keep a very, very close watch over it. Once all the funds and assets are accounted for, I suggest that the Governors of the fifty States agree upon a cost-of-living, per-capita index and a means of distribution and then actually move the resulting funds to within the borders of the assigned States. I can say much more about this process, but this is enough for now. At this critical juncture our focus is best spent on one very basic, very critical action: “Take the money.”
“It really is that simple.”
Blessings to you all, my dear Brothers and Sisters. 2008 will be quite an adventure!
