    I once heard it put about how the political campaign mirrors a football game. Most people would say, "Keep me out of that mess." But a select few say, "Gimme the ball!"

  3. Jamz said he voted for me if everyone dose that next voteing cycale we clowns will win the world
     
  4. Willace, have you thought about actually running for 2012? I'm asking because there are a number of clowns (the entertainer kind) who have been campaigning for years and years. There's one street performer who dresses like Uncle Sam and has the longest running presidential campaign. He has yet to make the ballot I think. Still something to think about! It could be a great clown character and yuo seem to already be developing it.
     
  5. Willace has a Forth of July suit I donno how old you got to be for prez thow but i could make ads & put them on youtube

    There's a guy in Chicago who clowns professionally, but also runs perennielly as a serious candidate (not a clown) for various races. One year he was actually the Republican nominee for Mayor of Chicago.

    You have top be 35 on Inauguration Day to take the Presidency.

    But you can be in the U.S. House at 25 and the Senate at 30. And of course there are a lot of little local offices which one might run for, too.

    Uncle Willace for State Representative! He wants YOU!

    > putting on serious face < Okay, now. I've read through all the posts and even laughed out loud at a few. Shook my head at a few others. I, personally, did not vote because I didn't like what either canidate had to say. Neither one could do moneywise what they said they wanted to do. Both would have been in debt and both would have ended up raising taxes even though they said they wouldn't.

    The only think I kept wondering as election day came around was ... Where was Pat Paulsen (sp?) when you need him? (Sorry! Didn't vote because they won't let me write in Mickey Mouse's name.)

    People who run for office:

    "If you have a background, the press will mangle it. If you have experience, you are already disillusioned. If you had intelligence you wouldn't be running for office in the first place!" - Ralph Puke, from Puke and Snot

    Very true, Ralph (especially the last bit)!

    A year or so ago I stood outside the polls in clown, handing out flyers telling people I was running on behalf of the Birthday Party. I thought I'd hand out some flyers and raise some business; instead, I got run off for canvassing within 500 yards of a polling place, or something like that.

    I do vote sometimes I wonder if it did any good. I didn't think much of McCain but i voted for him mostly to vote against Obama-and here's why.

    Now before I hear the words "Faciest" '"raciest" or anything esle thrown at me, when it comes to Mr. Obama I think of the old addage "You are judged by the company you keep," I think of the leftists, communists, and other radicals he has been associated with (One of them is a strong Jew hater-I'm not, and I hope this guys influence hasn't rubbed off on the president -elect because I'm pro-Israel). I also look at Obamas voting record as a senator and how ultra- left he voted in most issues-this makes me uneasy. I won't continue to bemoan the choice of this countryof the lousy candidate that My party nominated- I prefer to be an optimist and will hope for the best in these times.

    I think something crucial to appreciating this presidency will be that Obama is the first urban President this country has had, at least since JFK if he counts as Boston. And if you don't count Kennedy, then it could be argued that this is the first urban President ever, considering that FDR was already removed from NYC by the time he was elected and all others who preceeded were essentially never in the kind of urban environment which America now has. That may lend to a different perspective and approach in policy that what many have been used to. And, I might say, it is about time that urban America is given its just due in appreciation of these issues of real concern to so many in our country's populance.

    If race had nothing to do with it, then explain why Blacks made up 55 percent of the voters, and by far their biggest share in any presidential contest. Obama won 8 in 10 of their votes.

    And what I would like to know from Obama supporters...What exactly has Obama done that makes you think he is qualified, and has what it takes to be president? He is the least qualified president in history. He is also the most liberal president ever. If any of you understand our system of capitalism, I dont see why you would want to jeprodize that by electing someone with marxist and socialist views.

    He has already lied to us all. He promised Change, and that we would have something we have never had before. But yet he has to appoint the Clinton administration..BIG CHANGE.

    Obama wont be able to fix anything, he is only going to be hurting it from the git go. Killing small businesses will kill our country.

    Now is not the time for on the job training.

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! I had to comment because the "thank you" link would only let me thank you once...& I thought that you deserved more than one thank you for this WONDERFUL statement! I don't totally hate Obama, but I am totally sick of hearing all of the hype about him...he is HUMAN...just like the rest of us...he is not a "healer" and he is certainly not a "savior"...Perhaps he may surprise me & be the best president yet...but regardless there is still only one true savior...and anyone who thinks Obama is a savior is going to be in for a huge shock when our time here on earth is over!

    Proud to be a TEXAN!! :)

    Ok, all of you "Northerners"...PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not take offense to this!! It is meant ONLY as a joke. I just happened to recieve this as an email yesterday, and thought with all of the political threads I would just forward it on to you all (some of it is kinda funny) :)


    The Country of Texas

    Please note that Texas is the only state with a legal right to secede from the Union . (Reference the Texas-American Annexation Treaty of 1848.)

    We Texans love y'all, but we'll probably have to Take action since B. Hussein Obama won the election. We'll miss you too.


    Here is what can happen:

    #1: Barack Hussein Obama becomes President of the United States , Texas immediately secedes from the Union .


    #2: George W. Bush will become the President of the Republic of Texas .


    So what does Texas have to do to survive as a Republic?

    1. NASA is just south of Houston, Texas . We will control the space industry.


    2. We refine over 85% of the gasoline in the United States.


    3. Defense Industry--we have over 65% of it. The term "Don't mess with Texas," will take on a whole New meaning.


    4. Oil - we can supply all the oil that the Republic of Texas will need for the next 300 years. Yankee states? Sorry about that.


    5. Natural Gas - again we have all20we need and it's too bad about those Northern States. John Kerry will have to figure out a way to keep them warm....

    6. Computer Industry - we currently lead the nation in producing computer chips and communications--small companies like Texas Instruments, Dell Compute r, EDS, Raytheon, National Semiconductor, Motorola, Intel, AMD, Atmel, Applied Materials, Ball Miconductor, Dallas Semiconductor, Delphi, Nortel, Alcatel, etc, etc.


    The list goes on and on.


    7. Medical Care - We have the largest research centers for cancer research the best burn centers and the top trauma units in the world, as well as other large health centers. Dallas has some of the best hospitals in the United States .


    8. We have enough colleges to keep us going: University of Texas , Texas, A&M, Texas Tech, Rice, SMU, University of Houston , Baylor, UNT (University of North Texas ), Texas Women's University, etc. Ivy grows better in the South anyway.


    9. We have a ready supply of workers. We could just open the border when we need some more.


    10. We have essential control of the paper industry, plastics, insurance,etc.


    11. In case of a foreign invasion, we have the Texas National Guard and the Texas Air National Guard. We don't have an Army, but since everybody down here has at least six rifles and a pile of ammo, we can raise an Army in 24 hours if we need one. If the situation real ly gets bad, We can always call the Department of Public Safety and ask them to send over Chuck Norris and a couple of Texas Rangers.


    12. We are totally self-sufficient in beef, poultry, hogs, and several types of grain, fruit and vegetables, and let's not forget seafood from the Gulf. Also, everybody down here knows how to cook them so that they taste good. Don't need any food.


    This just names a few of the items that will keep the Republic of Texas in good shape. There isn't a thing out there that we need and don't have.


    Now to the rest of the United States under President Obama:

    Since you won't have the refineries to get gas for your cars, only President Obama will be able to drive around in his big 9 mpg SUV. The rest of the United States will have to walk or ride bikes.


    You won't have any TV as the Space Center in Houston will cut off satellite communications.


    You won't have any natural gas to heat your homes, but since Mr.. Obama has predicted global warming, you will not need the gas as long as you survive the 2000 years it will take to get enough heat from Global Warming.


    Signed, The People of Texas

    P.S... This is not a threatening letter - just a note to give you something to think about!

    SLEEP WELL TONIGHT THE EYES OF TEXAS ARE UPON YOU!!
