DEAR PROGRESSIVES, Should I Change my Name to "GENERAL" in Order to Be Elected President???
By Kevin Stoda, On-Line candidate for Democrats and Republicans for the US Presidency in 2008
As many of you recall, I have been running an on-line experiment.
That is, I am running for President of the United States (and several other offices, like Senator from Kansas) on-line. The experiment is to see how many votes I can receive without spending a dime (or penny). I will simply push the envelope.
Since terrible Tuesday is over in Pennsylvania, I thought I would stand up and remind the front runners-That's right: You, John McCain, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton!!!!!!!-that I'm still running, whether your cronies in the remaining primary states put me on the ballot or not.
(Don't turn your heads, I might be gaining on you.) Here is the beginning of my platform.
First of all, I want all Americans to have a single-payer system for health insurance in 2009. This would only be partially socialized-as most doctors and hospitals would be private. (Why not, since we have socialized banks and fully socialized military contractors.)
Second, I want a peace dividend in 2009 and onwards to be used to transform America's energy and transportation sectors. That means a transportation system of fast trains, trains that can load cars and trucks in less than 5 minutes, and solar and wind power pumping away like never before.
