Occupy Pennsylvania Avenue
I support free speech. That being said, I have a problem with Occupy Wall Street. It’s not so much that Wall Street is being occupied as it is that the wrong street is being occupied. We should be occupying Pennsylvania Avenue.
Wall Street does not write laws. They only buy people to write laws for them. The people who write the laws that benefit Wall Street more than Main Street work on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington. They are the ones that Wall Street buys through “lobbying”, which is not to be confused with bribery (when you or I do the same thing.)
It was Congress and the Presidents (present and former) who have allowed money to get involved in politics. It was them who allowed banks to get the power and money they must enjoy. Wall Street won’t change things just because we want them to change things.
Washington is currently talking about cutting the budget. While I agree the budget is too big, it’s where the cuts are going to take place that concerns me. The budget cuts are going to go towards social programs, but not administration of government (which is the largest cost of government.) There are no plans to check into why it costs so much to run a government office.
Pennsylvania Avenue is pretty long. We will need a lot of people to occupy it. Together we can right this country.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
Ahmnodt Heare is a
fictional character running a real campaign. He is an Independent candidate for President of the United States. His views on solving America’s problems is different than the ideas being offered by any Republican or Democratic candidate.
In the upcoming days, he will give a daily account of his political activities, campaigns, and other behind the scene activities like no other candidate ever has.
The purpose of this blog is to showing the absurdity of Ahmnodt Heare’s platform and show that the two major parties are equally absurd (especially at the federal level.)
If you are fed up with the two-party duopoly, then feel free to write in “Ahmnodt Heare” for the office of your choosing.
On Election Day, tell your fellow Americans, “Ahmnodt Heare!”
Ahmnodt Heare for America. Ahmnodt Heare for You.
