IOWA VOTERS, PLEASE, SHAKE UP THE SYSTEM AND CHANGE THE WORLD IN 2008! 

By Kevin A. Stoda 

I am running for President of the United States on behalf of the Republican Party on January 3, 2008.  Please vote for me or for my ideas.

 

First of all, I am a history teacher and lifelong educator with a good memory about the misguided history and economic malfeasance our nation has been enduring under the self-centered politics of BIG MONEY over these recent decades under shock doctrine theory, under neo-liberal theory, and under neo-conservative theory.

 

This is why I AM RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT WITHOUT ASKING YOU FOR A DIME!  Forget the money.  Just vote for the most important thing:  Take America off its spiral into mediocrity under the status quo in 2008

 

Isn’t that RADICAL in this day and age? Sure, it is.  That’s why I am running on the internet!

  LET’S GET EMANCIPATING THIS 2008! 

On January 1, 1863 the Emancipation Proclamation went into effect officially—if not in fact—freeing people of color from Slavery in the United States.  That was 145 years ago and its set a precedent.  Let’s start getting freed from bad facets of capitalism and other misguided economic slavery immediately.

That is, according to the national Archives and Records Administration, “Although the Emancipation Proclamation did not immediately free a single slave, it fundamentally transformed the character of the war. After January 1, 1863, every advance of federal troops expanded the domain of freedom. Moreover, the Proclamation announced the acceptance of black men into the Union Army and Navy, enabling the liberated to become liberators. By the end of the war, almost 200,000 black soldiers and sailors had fought for the Union and freedom.”

LET’S transform the character of the politics in Washington making war on Americans today!My first step as president would be to create an executive order restraining bad economic development related to the massive numbers of foreclosures on houses throughout the country as we are witnessing today!  I would stop the foreclosures immediately ( I would even allow a case by case recovery of homes or remuneration thereof for those who lost their homes already since or before  June 2007.)

My second step would be to demand the passage of universal health care. If Congress didn’t act within 100 days, I would write an executive order setting up such a system, including facets focusing on curbing medicine costs  and providing some sort of capping for treatment costs.

My third step would be to demand the creation of a better set of universal insurances on and for houses and companies which would protect homes and small businesses from being lost when people are ill or out-of-work for no thought of their own but a badly run economy.  (My brother lost his home in recent years due to combination of college debts and fluxuating interest rates on housing.)

Fourth, I would demand and implement a change in the payment system for higher education so that Americans were paying once again the same percentage of their salaries towards education and higher education in 2010 as did their grandparents five or six decades ago.  The government must see this investment in education as more important than most any other national investment, i.e.  providing for both ours and our children’s futures.

Finally, I would meet with military personnel and ask what could be done to have a securer world in 2010, 2020, 2030, etc.  I would say we need to cut the budget on war over the next few years drastically and ask them how this could be done. 

Meanwhile, I am considering other steps—such as making the HOMELAND SECURITY division much more efficient and more representative of actuall on the ground needs.I believe in long-term planning and I believe military personnel (as well as other Americans) are tired of the U.S. spending such a large part of their taxes on past wars, ongoing wars, and future wars. 

An ounce of prevention should not always cost the same as an ounce of gold.
