    In Response to Re: My Campaign Platform:
    Alright...Woo!  Looks like we're off and runnin' here big time people!  First off, sorry it took so long for me to get back on...  See, I'd like to say that I was beginning the grassroots campaigning process, but seeing as my Shrink (sheez, hope THAT's not held against me) said I've been doin' so well with this "full disclosure" thing (the basis for my ENTIRE campaign platform)- I'm just gonna tell you ALL the truth: I slept all of Saturday away and 3/4 of Sunday.  I'll do my utmost to curb this habit upon being elected your President.   See, ya gotta understand what I want here:  I want ZERO glory...none.  Erase my portrait from EVERY History Book upon completing my term limit.  I actually WANT that...No personal glory AND no monetary, or ANY gain for that matter.  I'll fly Coach and stay at Motel 8's during my Presidency.  I don't wanna be paid j#ck.  Not simply because I don't and would NEVER sell MY vote or influence to anyone, BUT you SHOULDN'T be paid j#ck to be in politics, There are PLENTY of people who would and WILL be in politics for the CORRECT REASON:      What I WANT (honestly), IS to give people the very BEST opportunity to be happy, and therein, THIS will make me happy.  So, right...WhatTH IS "happy"?  Well, I want the GREATEST number of Americans to be comfortable in their lifestyles...New Car, Children, Less Government Watching of them, Good VacationS, Medical, Retirement, etc, etc.  I WANT the GREATEST number of people to be able to follow their dreams...You want to own a business, I'd help you, You want to be a doctor, be a sport's star, I'll help you get INTO the right institutions to help make YOUR particular happiest dream, a more realistic one...  But see again, Here's the catch...  You NEED to try your utmost in fulfilling these dreams, and Those whom have the assets at their disposal NEED to help those (i.e. the majority of U.S. citizens), along the way...  Those with far more assets than they will EVER need WILL probably lose some of these assets, And those with far more assets than the next guy absolutely HAVE to re-invest in the economy so other people can fulfill THEIR dreams too.  IF it's your dream to do be a trillionaire with servants and to do nothing and light $100 cigars with $100 bills?  Tough...There NEED to be curbs on such excess, Helping out the greatest number of people, Trumps such slothlike greed and excess and uncaring virtues...sorry.  Now I don't wanna get caught up in some high rhetoric now of paltry case-specific sophisms, ridiculous rhetorical reasonings of illusory fantastic made up examples...  Understand this:  IF you try hard, YES- You WILL still have more, better opportunities and better and more assets than the next guy.  Does it mean that your kid's a lock for the most expensive private school and best one at that?  NO Way...He's gotta try hard too, and show that he wants it.  Does it mean that IF yopu try absurdly hard and harder than most 99% of other people, THAT YOU will have more than you will ever, ever use in 1000 lifetimes...  No Way.  There has to be a check, some check, a balance, some balance, a curb on greed and not simply excess, but OVER-excess.  I'll answer each and every post in a few hours, so load 'em up people....or should I say, registered voters (wink, wink).  IF I have to (between playing video games that is), I WILL convince each and EVERY one of you about the righteousness of this cause here.

    You might just make a great politician after all.  Just like the best politicians, you have already mastered the art of spewing incorrect facts in the hope that the ignorant will accept those facts as truth and cast a vote for you :^)  Also like a true politician, you have taken a populist position.  No better way to get a few votes than to slam those evil rich guys.  Hmmm.... what makes you different from the folks we already have in office?

    As of 2007, Bill Gates had given over $28 BILLION to charity.  Warren Buffet donates about $3 BILLION to Gates' foundation annually.  I'm no genius, but I think that FAR exceeds $5 MIL.  The two were recently in the news for calling on all billionaires to donate at least 50% of their wealth to charities.  How could you not know this?  I'll explain how.

    An original saying I have (a twist on the pauli exclusion principle) goes like this: bias and intellect cannot occupy the same space at the same time.  You have deep biases, and those biases are to intellect what alcohol is to judgment.  I'm an independent, a moderate, and long to see a true moderate return to office.  Why?  Because I have yet to see anyone on the far right, left, or extreme on anything not display blatant acts of bias drunkenness.  It's the only way I can explain how otherwise intelligent people can take such illogical and inaccurate positions on various matters.

    This is probably going to open up a sh*t storm but you promised to go after those that attack America.  I have to think you are referencing Bin Laden here.  I can agree with that but I'll add a little allegory in the spirit of Laz. 

    While sitting in your house a spider bites you and runs off.  You saw what he looked like so you spend the next few months chasing that spider down in your house.  Every time you find a spider in your house you closely inspect him and determine that it's a different spider so you let them go.  In the meantime you start getting bitten by the other spiders and you now have a list of spiders you are trying to get.

    The point here being that the specific spider is not important the infestation of spiders is the problem.  Just to make it clear I'm saying that Bin Laden does not run the only Anti-American, radical islamic group who has the means and desire to hurt Americans.  Those groups are everywhere and many would love to get ahold of military grade weapons.  Which brings in another group- Countries (North Korea, Iran, etc.).  These countries want to do harm to America but they are not willing to risk their own livelihood in a battle they won't win.  So they would love to "lose" a few weapons and have those fall into the hands of any radical organization willing to use them.  That way they would not be resposible for the damage but would still accomplish their agenda.

    Maybe you understand these complexities already.  But if you want to be President how would you have handled post 911?  If your answer is only to go after one guy than I think that your policy is a bit shortsighted.

    First we must aske the question, what is best for this country? Obviously the free market system is failing because those at the top have cheated the public out of TRILLIONS and they are still getting more. Capitalism has proven that those on top create nothing but lies and poison and do nothing but steal from the little man.
     Socialism? ...well we have had many social programs for many many years, medicare, welfare, social security, the Media! Many people cry and moan about socialism but the truth is this country has been running on it since the 1940's, if you dont believe that then you better check out all the Government progams since then.
    Fascism.. Our local Police forces are already headed down this path, and sorry folks but with the constant growth of illegals in this country (no matter where they are from) and many of them involved in drugs or medicare scams, insurance scams and all the others combined, things are going to get ugly.
    Democracy? Once again this borders onto the wealthy having the most power and with them united will turn to a form of socialism by which they keep most of the power and the money.

    SO what does one do?  You cant go back to squatter rights and live off the land, without money you will not continue to have good health without some form of social programs available. 
    I say go back to a system that worked and still does in many forms.............
    BARTER!
    Yes Barter, you offer your service for another service that you need... once you complete your contract then you have what both parties worked out and without payment to the federal government, to the banks, to the thieves that would have you broke and reduced to nothing.

    LAZ />>>> I implore you to use this as your platform or a small part of it! Yell

    The only "spiders" we have to worry about are the ones in Washington.  If we didn't support Israel and most of the authoritarian regimes in the Mid East, the Muslims wouldn't care about us.  And if we had just let all of Korea go communist back in '45, the country would have converted to capitalism along with the rest of the communist bloc back in the 80s.

    North Korea is still communist, backed by China who is still communist.  Which regimes are you talking about in the mid east?  If Obama puts out a press release tomorrow saying that the U.S. will not have any involvement in the mid east or anywhere else than we are no longer targets for Islamic extremists?  I doubt it.  I can understand your view that America should keep it's nose out of other peoples business.  I think these situations have to be looked at individually and analyzed especially when we are already involved.  Walking away from situations can sway the balance of power and cause wars.

    North Korea is still a totalitarian regime because of the war - because they are threatened and isolated by the south and the US.  If we just left the communists to their own incompetence, their regimes would fall under their own weight.  

    China is no longer totalitarian.  They are communist in name but their economy is growing because of free market reforms and trade with the rest of the world, which was helped by Nixon opening relations with them rather than trying to isolate and starve them do death like N Korea.

    Authoritarians in the mideast supported by US (past and present):

    Iran - the Shah
    Iraq - Saddam
    Egypt - Sadat/Mubarak
    Saudi Arabia - the monarchy
    Kuwait - the monarchy

    Let's not forget we also supported the Taliban.

    And, of course, Israel.

    If you read the history of the Fed you will begin to realize how and what this WORLD is run by. The Fed has been around over 100 years, lent money to all sides of warring nations, (at the same time) and is the reason for what is actually going on today. One of the most powerful bankers has been there throughout Obama's campaign to becomming the preident. Ronald Regan tried to break the Fed and failed miserably.
    The only real way for the little guy to actually break the Fed system (money loan) is to actually Barter. It sounds crazy but it has been written about for many years and actually works whereas you keep government, states and banking out of what you do between 2 actual parties or more.
    Growing your own vegetables, fruits, eggs,(poultry) can be done, also any type of solar generated electricity serves as well. There are many simple things that can be done. I live here in Florida and have my own furniture/auction company. I barter many times with people for many different things and have made many friends by doing so as well as good business contacts.
    Fear not people, for Laz is coming and we are the answer to none of America's problems...We're just in it for the bucks! Yell

    Re: My Campaign Platform

     Democracy by it's nature leads to defecit spending i think. Promising tax cuts while increasing spending has always been a recipe for disaster while helping one get elected and/or reelected. Even mighty empires like the British Empire had massive defecit spending. The American revolution was partially caused by Great Britian's attempt to reduce it's defecit. The taxes the colonists loathed were proposed to repay Britain's massive debt incurred in the Seven Years War. Reduced spending obviously means reduced services and while i may be fine with that, others clearly are not. A complete elimination of welfare would only dent the national debt while perhaps increasing medi care and or crime spending. To reduce a huge national debt the whole country needs to make sacrifices, which I do not see happening any time soon. Only in a parliementary system will extreme partisanship work at solving serious issues. American democracy has too many checks and balances (as well as powerful special interest groups) to let one party run roughshod for very long over the other one.
