Announcing my Candidacy for President of the United States in 2012

Message Mark A. Goldman

My name is Mark A. Goldman and I am herewith announcing my candidacy for President of the United States.    

I am taking this action to give you the opportunity to vote for the kind of person you might want to vote for but otherwise might never get the chance.

If your first thought is that a vote for me could never be more than a wasted vote, I would ask you to seriously consider...  how have your other votes for president worked out?

If you voted for Nader and thought that was a wasted vote, it didn't have to be.  All we needed or need to do is to make sure that Nader or someone like Nader continues to get enough votes to keep a Democrat from winning... for as many times as necessary until citizens realize that if they want to win they will have to vote their conscience and stop playing politics.  The fact is, that if there is no one like Nader (or me) running, things will not turn around and we will all be losers until someone like me can get elected.  

It may be true that Democrats and Republicans intend to spend over a billion dollars to convince you to vote only for their candidates; it's also true that no matter how much they spend, no one is going to go into the voting booth with you to keep you from voting for the person you think would best represent your interests. 

It looks to me like we can no longer trust the main stream media to help us make prudent decisions.  This is why I'm not going to rely on the main stream media to announce my candidacy.  They probably wouldn't anyway.  Instead, I'm giving you the opportunity to judge for yourself. If you will rely on your own research, intellect, and judgment and not the usual polls, and other spoon fed propaganda you can expect to get during the coming election circus, I believe you'll come to a better decision than if you only rely on what the candidates or the media put out.  

But don't worry.  If and when people begin to take my candidacy seriously, I'm sure the main stream media will be happy to provide you with commentary as to what you should think of me... not much no doubt.     

Whether it's me or someone else... this time... vote your conscience.  Vote for the person you think would make the best president among the candidates running... regardless of who you think can win.   It's the only way the best possible candidate can ever win. 

If we play the game the way they've set it up, no one like me will ever be president.  My way, there might be a chance.  But only if you are able to think outside the box. 

The fate of the country is in your hands.
