First, silliness then something important.
Today, in a last ditch effort, I am willing to be elected as president. I have three reasons:
1. I promise to stay away from Washington at least 300 days a year. Can’t do much damage if I’m not there to do anything at all.
2. I promise that I will work not only cross the aisles but cross the ocean to places like Bermuda and Tahiti. Without presidential over sight these may well prove to be trouble spots in the future.
3. I promise not only a chicken in every pot but a pig in every drive way. I don’t know what that means but it sounds good.
Now, I realize I am not on any ballot so therefore it will take a write in effort. Before you think this is impossible with such a short amount of time. Actually, it isn’t. Let’s say that if there are 300 of you who read this article, then each one of you write to everyone on your list let’s say there are 10 of those, that would mean that within minutes, 3000 will know about me. An click later will provide us with 30,000. You see where this is heading? Within minutes, 300,000 and later 3,000,000. By this evening, everyone who can vote should know me.
With 7 days to go, we could generate about 25,000 hits a day with reply and reply all and forward to our entire address books, we should be able to more than get the message out.
Not, that was silly. This isn’t: Tuesday is election day. Go and vote. While I may have my preferences, we should all go and participate. My dad, my father in law and so many others have given either their lives or given a portion of their lives just so that we have that privilege. Join me won’t you? VOTE TUESDAY!!!
Peace and grace. Reed
