Ahmnodt Heare for President

Ahmnodt Heare For America… Ahmnodt Heare For You.

The World Cup and my Campaign

My primary campaign stop today will be watching the World Cup in a local bar.  Many people reading this will wonder why watching soccer (or football for people outside of the US and Canada) wondering how the World Cup can be part of a presidential campaign.  the reason is simple:  It ties in with my Affordable Entertainment Awareness campaign, which is a cornerstone of my platform.

While getting World Cup tickets, flying to South Africa, and getting hotel accommodations cost a lot of money, the price of watching it on TV at home costs zero dollars and zero cents (plus applicable taxes).  I will be watching it at a local bar.  The price of the two beers and a burger will be the same whether the bar was showing the World Cup, Oprah Winfrey, or nothing at all.  In many places, this will not cost much.

Going to a movie can cost an arm and a leg if one brings a date.  Two tickets, two large soft drinks, and two large popcorns or candies can cost $50.  And unlike sporting events that are shown live on television, movies take a long time from the time it is shown in theaters to the time it is shown at home.

I will not be campaigning during the game.  I will campaign before the game and after the game.  If the USA wins, people will be more receptive to my campaign.  GO USA!

Watching the World Cup on TV costs less than going to the movies.

P.S. For those of you in South Africa who are going to the US-Ghana game, this is suggested reading.
