Ahmnodt Heare for President

Ahmnodt Heare For America… Ahmnodt Heare For You.

Fiscal Conservatism Applied

Fiscal Conservatism is not just a political talking point to me – It is a lifestyle choice.  One way to tell is a candidate is truly fiscally conservative is how he or she spends one’s own money.  Another way is seeing how campaign finance money is spent.  Will that candidate run up debt for his or her campaign in a desperate attempt to get elected?

I can’t comment on any specific candidate at this time due to the lack of certified candidates for President.  I can safely say, however, that I will be the most fiscally conservative candidate for President in the 2012 election.  Below are some examples of my fiscal conservatism and how I plan on implementing it in the White House:

  • Coupons – I am a big believer of coupons and rebates and often save 20-30% on my grocery bills every week.  I do not get so excited about coupons that I buy something just because I have a coupon for it.  While I take advantage of coupons for orange juice and shaving cream, I do not use coupons for tampons because I currently do not have a need for tampons.
  • Rebates – There is no greater feeling than money in your pocket.  I use the same criteria for buying stuff offering rebates as I do offering coupons.  I will appoint a Coupon Czar whose job will be to clip coupons, file for rebates, and find other ways to save money.
  • Generic Brands – Many times the biggest difference between generic brands and brand name items is that the generic brand is not advertised or marketed in the same matter as brand name items.  Both generic sugar and brand name sugar are C12H22O11.
  • Eat at Home – I rarely eat at restaurants.  You can save a lot of money by eating at home.  Nothing is more romantic than finding someone to sucker into cooking you dinner.
  • Grow your own – You can save a lot of money by growing your own corn, peas, lettuce, and marijuana instead of buying it at the store.

I have taken fiscal conservatism to my campaign.  I spent $.60 on my 2008 campaign.  I have spent no money on the 2012 campaign.  I didn’t file with the FEC because I didn’t want to waste money on a filing fee.  While I will not appear on any ballot, I could still be elected with a vigorous write-in campaign.

You can vote for somebody who claims to be a fiscal conservative but continue to run up deficits, or you could vote for somebody who has walked the walk in generic shoes.  I walk that walk and I have the shoes to prove it.

  1. AH…I’m with you, friend. I use all of the above except for grow your own. That’s because it’s illegal here.

    What category do you think John Kerry falls in? He bought that grossly expensive yacht but docked it in a state where he didn’t have to pay taxes on it (till he got caught). In my humble opinion, I think that places him in an altogether different category…..RIch Cheat.

    Just sayin’…

    Still pushing your platform!

  2. I would pardoned anybody who grew their own. I don’t have a lot of faith in the FDA or the USDA keeping the food supply safe considering the stuff they allow in the food.

  3. I’m all about being tight, I mean fiscally conservative. Since I have no money to spend, I find I’m cutting back more and more. Soon I’ll be living in a card board box.

  4. How about just shopping at Walmart. Must be cheaper than those $400 hammers the government likes to buy.

  5. Yellowcat, I am hoping that my fiscal policies will make it possible to lower prices on many items. Since I won’t be spending much money, I won’t need much tax revenue. If that doesn’t work, I’ll just have to confiscate ownership of your house from your landlord and give it to you under eminent domain or something.

  6. Bearman, I will shop at Wal-Mart, Dollar Tree, and any other discount store to save Americans money. THis will be in addition to my other policies.

  7. Just another reason why I’m voting you President, Ahmnodt.

    ps. I’d tell you the other reasons, but seeing as I’m writing from an internet cafe, this comment has already cost me $0.20.)

  8. Bschooled, aren’t there places near you where you can use the internet while enjoying a hot beverage? Or perhaps you have a neighbour who has unsecured WiFi. (I added the “u” in neighbour to make you feel at home.)

  9. U are too kind, Ahmnodt.

    (Ha! Get it?)

    Oh, and to answer your question, seeing as my closest neighbor (returning the favor–and again!) is a three hour snowshoe from my house, it’s almost not worth it.
