Ahmnodt Heare for President

Ahmnodt Heare For America… Ahmnodt Heare For You.

A Different Voice

The news has been dominated by rallies in Wisconsin and Libya in recent days.  (But since Libya is not part of the United States yet, I will not discuss Libya today.)  The battle seems to be between the Wisconsin Teachers’ Union right to collective bargaining and the state’s right to save taxpayers money.  The thing missing in the equation is the children.

While the discussion seems to be about money, nobody seems to be paying attention to the children’s education.  This is why I flew to Wisconsin (That and seeing an opportunity to campaign to thousands of people at a time without having to set up a rally.)  While campaigning, I handed out pamphlets of my education platform.  The sad part is that neither the union supporters nor the state supporters seemed interested in my platform or in improving education for the children.

It is a shame that neither side could see that my plan is a win for both sides.  The unions would win because it would cost less to educate the children under my plan, thus leaving more money for the teachers.  The state supporters would win because we would no longer be funding things like bassoon players and shot-putters because neither has a market in the business world.

Americans have become too wrapped up in themselves to see that their actions affect others.  I have the insight and the vision to look out for everybody.  (Even for those people who are not hotties.)

A Look at my Platform – Church and State

Over the next couple weeks, I will take issues from my platform and further explain my positions. Today, I will discuss my views on church and state.

I am for the separation of Church and State. If clergy were to become state employees, that would be yet another union that AFSCME would represent and soak taxpayers by demanding higher wages. They would all want Sundays off, which would close many houses of worship.

There has to be a separation between church and state.  If the church and the state become intertwined, then the clergy would end up being state employees and unionized.  This would lead to:

  • Paying clergy premium pay to work on Sunday.  Some churches are only opened on Sunday.  This will be costly for all churches.
  • Breaks in a middle of a sermon.  Not only would a clergy person not be allowed to preach during his or her break, but healing a parishioner during a clergy’s break would be strictly prohibited.
  • All religions have holidays.  These holidays would give all clergy holiday pay in addition to regular pay.  Sunday pay and holiday pay for clergy might compel places of worship to increase the tithe rate to 15 or 20%.
  • By combining church and state, churches would have to have services for all holidays and not just religious holidays.  Who wants to hear a sermon on Independence Day?
  • There will be a huge stigma placed on people who crosses a clergy’s picket line.  Striking clergy will also cause confusion among parishioners.  Will they follow their leader which the Bible says or will they go to church?

Keeping church and state separate  will make worship more affordable and less confusing for parishioners everywhere.
