The Ideal Candidate
In this week’s posting I am asking for a couple of special favors. I have penned a “white paper” on The Ideal Candidate and is much too long to include the entire narrative in this posting. My goal is to use it as the basis in facilitating a grass roots movement. If consider yourself a moderate independent, Republican, Democrat or a Libertarian I believe that you find the vast majority of this candidates position to your liking.
What I am hoping is that you will use the following drop box link to access the paper and take the time to read it (it is quite long). If you believe that a candidate with this Presidential platform is one that you would vote for in 2020, then please forward the drop box link to a minimum of 10 of your friends via Facebook or any form of social media. When you do this please ask them to: “Please take time to review the “white paper” at the following drop box link https://www.dropbox.com/s/d6leve5mb43p6tg/IPC.pdf?dl=0. If you believe that a candidate with this Presidential platform is one that you would vote for in 2020, then please forward the drop box link to a minimum of 10 of your friends via Facebook or any form of social media.” And do so using the text inside of the preceding quotation marks (“…..”).
Discussion and solutions in the following areas are included in the paper:
- Election & Term Reform
- The National Debt
- The National Defense, Security & Veteran support
- Tax Reform
- Income Security
- Energy Dependence
- Climate Change & the Environment
- Immigration Reform
- Social Security & Medicare
- International Relations & Foreign Policy
- Criminal Justice & Incarceration
- Human Rights
- Gun Control
- Illegal & Prescription Drugs
- Population & Resources
- Right to Life
Many folks will consider this approach naïve and they might be right. Going up against two heavily funded and entrenched Parties will be extremely difficult. Consider that our current approach to selecting candidates is the reason we find our country in such a mess. If each individual that reads the paper is willing to take personal responsibility for change then we can do it.
The part of the favor will require you to take some action. Obviously, the Ideal Candidate is now just hypothetical. That leads me to the 2nd favor. I am asking you to take at least one more of the following actions: 1. We need nominations for potential persons that are willing to adopt the platform. If you would like to nominate an Individual please send the nomination, with the word “Nomination” in the subject line, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the email address of the person you nominate. 2. If you have social media skills and would be willing to volunteer your services please send an email to email@example.com with “Social Media” in the subject line. 3. If you are willing to assist with the campaign in your state please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Volunteer” in the subject line. Please include your state in the email.
