As fucked up an individual as a I am, I still make a lot more sense compared to most of the politicians out there. So I am asking the world to make a real statement of rebellion against the status quo and write me in for any office - big or small. Several states even allow write in names for the office of Presidency and for those that don't accept it, it's still a viable protest vote.
How's this for a one sentence Constitution: Do whatever the fuck you want as long as you don't hurt anyone or interfere with someone else doing whatever the fuck they want.
Don't think life should be that simple or that this large of a change can be done or you're just the type who needs more details for incremental changes?... keeping reading below:
I can explain my whole campaign into these 3 words...
simple: make life simple again - for instance, our tax system is too complicated and you shouldn't have to hire an expert just to figure it out. Each year, regular citizens miss out on millions of dollars because of a lack of understanding the tax code, which I argue, is impossible for any one person to fully comprehend.
fair: be consistent with everyone and don't let Congress be able to make rules for everyone else but give themselves an exception.
fun: true freedom is a blast...wait until you try it!
-Elected officials can only serve one six-year term. Six years is plenty of time to get stuff done but then there will be no pressure to cater to special interests in order to get financial support for the next election. People would no longer be able to make a career out of politics.
-“Lobbying” should be made illegal. Special interests should not have the power to pressure individual politicians. If an organization wants to make a case for money allocation, they can make a presentation to the entire congress or an appointed bipartisan committee.
-“Pork” is outlawed. Line items that do not directly relate to the overall theme of a bill are not allowed to be introduced or added. Pet projects should be left up to the cities, counties, and states and paid with local taxes.
-Lawmakers are required to live by the same laws as they enact on the rest of society. For instance, Congress cannot exempt themselves from their own healthcare legislation or insider stock trading, like they have actually done in the past.
-Enact a national consumption tax as opposed to taxing income earned from being productive. Like local sales tax, food is exempt. Everyone will pay into it, including folks here illegally, thus helping to diffuse some of the immigration debate.
-Elected officials cannot vote on their own pay raises and they are only paid the amount of the average annual salary in their particular district or state. If a member of Congress wants to make more money, they need to work to improve labor conditions for everyone they represent. The President should be paid the average national salary and would thus have the same incentive.
-Legalize drugs. We will never win a war on something that is so much in demand. We are only empowering the cartels and organized crime. Let individuals make their own choices. Some drugs (and not just cannabis) even have medicinal effects that are only beginning to become known now that big pharma is losing its influence on the American public.
-Legalize prostitution. Sex + Capitalism = Win/Win. Why is sex illegal when two consenting adults decide to do it for money... unless you film it for profit (porn)? Stupid! Nye County in Nevada has it right. Folks, be free.
-If an annual budget is not approved by the deadline, it defaults temporarily to the previous year's budget, thus keeping all offices open, and no one in Congress gets paid until the new annual budget is agreed upon (and with no back pay). 2 bickering high profile people should never be able to stop hard working people from getting regular paychecks just for their political posturing.
-Enact a "2 Strikes Law". If someone commits a violent crime, give them the best chance of true rehabilitation (i.e. puppy programs, job training, education, encouragement, etc.). If they commit a second violent crime after our best efforts to rehabilitate then it's strictly punishment and we "throw away the key" (i.e. grow your own food to eat, no TV/gym, etc.).
-Instead of allowing Presidents to pardon individuals, such as their friends, only allow pardons that tackle an entire category of crime, such as "all non-violent marijuana offenders".
-And last but not least, for God's sakes, remove daylight savings clock changes. LOL
Well, my own "Party" Party of course!
