As President, The Beginning

If I was running for president of the United States, the following posts would be a chance for you to get to know me and my philosophical positions. I believe electing a candidate to represent you is about trust. The more you know about me the more you can trust me at my word.

While campaigning for the office of the President of the United States, I will not make any campaign promises that can not be kept. I believe promises (campaign or otherwise) are at the core of a person’s character. Most candidates for public office lie throughout the election process. We have had too many liars in public office especially at the highest levels, the president and congress.

The president should be a leader. Presidents should be a model for future leaders. Can you imagine a president saying “I didn’t inhale”, or “Read my lips, no more taxes” or “I promise an open and transparent government” and trust him at his word?

In the past voters have rationalized voting for someone based on their ethnicity, the way they talk or the way they look. Other historical considerations were what candidates promise to give voters like money (unions), power (party contributors), favors (illegals) or antiquated party alliance.

Past presidents have had their own self-interest at heart. Consequently, they had no consistent, discernible decision-making moral code or philosophy. Their loyalties were to ideologies of others, mainly large contributors. Present and past presidents will lean towards any philosophy that promises reelection. These candidates, when elected, have been manipulated by powerful people with money and specific ideologies to the determent of the average American citizen.

I want to change that prospective. I want to govern from the prospective of an average American citizen. When a specific issue or situation arises, I will ask, ‘what direction would benefit the average American in the streets’. I would forsake the ‘common good’ philosophy for the ‘good for the common individual’ viewpoint.

Most past presidents have not been leaders but followers of grand schemes to accomplish specific one-size-fits-all goal. Most recent presidents seem hell-bent on turning the U.S. into a collective type, socialistic country. History has shown presidents from the early 1900s have set the foundation for today’s stretch run to complete socialism.

Future posts will be topic-specific, philosophy positions of what I will advocate as President of the United States. Get to know me through these posts. Apply the same criteria to all the candidates. VOTB – Vote Out The Bums and let an average Citizen’s prospective take a shot at running the country.

VOTB – vote for a better future for you and your family. Remember electing someone to represent you in government is about trust.
