Ahmnodt Heare for President

Ahmnodt Heare For America… Ahmnodt Heare For You.

Hey, I Tried

I was hoping I could watch the Republican and Democratic Conventions without falling asleep.  There was hope the Republican convention could actually get exciting with Ron Paul’s delegates causing some kind of ruckus.  I heard through the grapevine that they did cause some commotion, but the media brushed it aside.

Watching the opening of today’s activities was not like watching paint dry.  It was more like listening to paint dry.  I do not know if RNC Chair Reince Priebus was drunk or is uncomfortable speaking in front of people, but that boy didn’t look right today.

I was considering joining a political party but thought better of it.  But neither party has many good ideas and it shows.  The best thing about being an Independent is that I can take the 2% of the Republican ideas that are good and the 2% of the Democratic ideas that are good and combine them with the 70% of the Libertarian, Reform, Green, Constitution, and The Rent is Too Damned High parties as well as the ideas I have kicked up over the years.

While there will never be a party convention for independents, that gives me more time to spend with real Americans while the other candidates hang out with party big-wigs with personalities of a wet dirty mop.  Time to clean the mop and ring it out.

Watching a party convention is like watching a telethon.  It’s all about a disease for which there is no cure and they want your money.  I don’t want your money.  It’s hard to like someone who does want your money.  Even a political novice like myself knows that an independent cannot get votes if nobody likes him (or her).  That’s why i try to be likable.

A Building Block

A recent poll showed that a plurality of Americans are neither Democratic nor Republican.  This is great news for independents like me.  The latest poll shows the following:

  • Independents – 40%
  • Democrats – 31%
  • Republican – 27%
  • Other parties (Libertarian, Green, Constitution, Rent is too Dammed High, etc.) – 2%

Let’s assume for a minute that everybody votes along party lines.  President Obama will get 31% of the vote.  Ron Paul will get 27%.  Two percent of the vote will be split among candidates like Gary Johnson, Cynthia McKinney, Chuck Baldwin, and Jimmy McMillan.

This leaves 40% of the vote for the independent candidate.  That is me.  Just to play it safe (because this is a national number and not split among the other states), I will do some campaigning to get votes from Democrats and Republicans.  This will hopefully be the plan to get me all 538 electoral votes, which would give me the presidency.

Yesterday’s debate was weird.  It just was.  I ended up spending almost as much time defending some of the Republicans as I did getting my message out.  Somebody was posting anti-Ron Paul statuses on my newsfeed.  There were a few problems I had about this.  The first was that these people had no intention of voting for me.  They wouldn’t say who they were voting for.  And the “facts” they were saying about Ron Paul were inaccurate or outright lies.  If a candidate has a bad record, point out the bad record.  Don’t lie just to get a few votes.

The other was a question I posted on Twitter.  I had asked why NBC had former Louisiana governor Buddy Roemer on all of its MSNBC talk shows showing sympathy for him for not being allowed to debate on FoxNews, ABC, or CNN only not letting him debate on the NBC debate either.

As the candidate with the most representation (among the polls listed above), I have to make sure I don’t lose any independents to the other parties.  Election Day is ten months from yesterday.  Independents take note that I am here to represent you and not some silly party with no dancing girls or beer kegs.  Thank you for your support.

The House, The Senate, Obama, and the Need for Independents

The “Payroll Tax Cut” is set to expire on January 1.  President Obama wanted to extend the tax cut for another year.  The Senate passed an extension for two months.  The House passed it for a year.  Since the House and Senate passed different versions of the bill, they were supposed to have members of both chambers meet and hammer out the difference.  The problem is the Senate has adjourned for the holidays and will not return until after the New Year.  The President now wants the House to pass the Senate version, but the House refuses to vote on it.

President Obama is a Democrat and the Senate has a Democratic Party majority, but the Republican Party has a majority in the House.  This bill is being labeled as a “Jobs Bill” (though I don’t know if this is supposed to generate jobs or is a tribute to Steve Jobs.)  The problem is that recently, both Democrats and Republicans have titled bills that have nothing to do with the laws they want to pass.  This practice has to end and the only way it can end is by voting for Independents like myself.

Since people don’t want to be mislead (I could be wrong here based on the politicians people vote for and re-elect), they should vote for people who won’t mislead.  Republicans and Democrats mislead.  They have mislead and switched positions with each other time and time again.

Obama and Democrats were elected in large part to bring a quick end to the Iraq War.  Not only did that war not end quickly and we’re still fighting in Afghanistan, but he managed to send troops to Libya.  Republicans, who were against withdrawing from Iraq, questioned why we were bringing troops to Libya.  Once Gadaffi was removed, Republicans were complaining that we were leaving Libya too early and we needed more troops there.

Instead of voting for the two parties, vote for independents.  They don’t have an ever-changing party platform to cling to.  All we Independents have is our word, and if we go against our word, we won’t be re-elected as we don’t have party pundits to spin our actions or our words.

Campaign Polls

This is something I will do a couple times a year.  I am going to ask a few poll questions so my campaign can keep a pulse on the heartbeat of America.  The campaign will not be collecting any personal information in the poll.  You may send your personal information (Name, address, phone number, mother’s maiden name, and social security number) to ahmnodtheare-at-politician-dot-com.

My Fellow Americans

My Fellow Americans,

I have been blogging since I decided to run for President almost three years ago.  During this times I have discovered several trends in politics:

  • It’s “OK” to denounce a conservative who uses derogatory words towards liberals as “tea-baggers.”
  • It is OK to call somebody who doesn’t support the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as “anti-American” despite the fact that Congress hasn’t declared war on Afghanistan or Iraq (or Al-Qaeda or the Taliban) as required by the Constitution.  Congress has also authorized the President to use force, which is not mentioned in the Constitution.
  • The more the media talks about Sarah Palin, the more likely she will become President.  Bad publicity is better than no publicity.
  • Republicans tend to vote for Republicans and Democrats tend to vote for Democrats, but Independents rarely vote for independents despite that there are more registered Independent voters than with either the Democrats or the Republicans.
  • This line has been censored by the Department of Defense due to national security reasons.
  • While most political sites get the majority of their hits before Election Day or on Election Day, most people visit my website after Election Day.

If you are one of those people who are finding the website for the first time, do yourself a favor and add this website to your Favorites toolbar on your web browser.  Otherwise you will make the same mistake in 2012 and hit yourself in the head after realizing that you could have voted for me.  Head injuries increased dramatically among voters following the 2008 elections.

I thank you for spending time reading my blog.  Feel free to read the almost 1,200 archived entries or check out the videos and testimonials.  You can listen to my podcast live every Tuesday at 9:00PM/ 6PM Pacific (02:00 in London) and call in with questions or comments.  Tonight, I will be interviewing Independent Candidate for President of Mexico Noes Toiaqui as well as take calls from viewers and listeners.

Deciphering The Election Results

There are two races that have yet to be called that will tell my chances of winning as a write-in candidate in 2012.  One race is the Colorado Governor race.  It’s not so much who will win (Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper will be the next governor) as it will be if the Republican Party will be on one of the top two lines on ballots in 2012.  Former Congressman Tom Tancredo ran as a American Constitution candidate.  He shared conservative votes with Republican candidate Dan Maes, who finished a distant third.

The Colorado Senate race is still too close to call.  The Republican Ken Buck needs to win since the Republican in the governor’e race finished a distant third.  He is currently a couple thousand voted behind Democratic Senator Michael Bennet.

The race I am really keeping an eye on is Alaska.  The good news is that “write-ins” have a lead.  The presumption is that those write-ins are for Lisa Murkowski.  But since Alaska has yet to release the names of the write-in notes, it is conceivable that Alaskans wrote my name in.  They tend to do things differently up there.

NBC news is reporting that 85% of tea party candidates won their elections.  I will try to attend tea parties, but I was met with indifference with the tea party my daughter had the last time she came to visit.  I was not able to convince her stuffed bear or her dolls to vote for me.  While Patrica is enthusiastically supportive of my campaign, she will only be 9 years old in 2012.

The Republicans will control the House and the Democrats will control the Senate.  This bodes well for independents like myself.  There will be two more years of gridlock as well as six more weeks of winter.  Independents will be the key to getting the country back in the right direction.  While independents are a plurality of voters, they are most likely to cross party lines and vote for someone who is not an independent.  If independents don’t stick to their base and vote for fellow independents, gridlock can last a lot longer (or worse, we could have Republicans or Democrats running the country.)

The best news is that now that Election Day is over, there won’t be political ads for a couple months.  Sit back and enjoy.

Endorsements – 2010

I am not running for office this year, so I have time to look at races across the country.  Unlike some other politicians, I will not mandate that those who I endorse return the favor.  They are as independent as I am and we independents do not roll like that.

Florida U.S. Senate – Charlie Crist

Maine Governor – Shawn Moody

New York Governor – Jimmy McMillan
