The absurdity of Running For President in A Free Nation

Anybody truly can run for president usually most of these people choose to run either as Republicans or democrats and running as an independent assures historically they you will not win, but there is also a possibility that you can make a difference. You are free to say anything that you want because you don't have the burden of having to win. When people invest hundreds of millions in your campaign they usually kind of expect something. Quite often this means issues such as failing war on drugs, Juvenile detention centers serving as revolving doors for prisons, massive college debt to become educated, Over use of pharmacies, pollutions that are allowed to be put into our water and food, and many other issues are either ignored or quickly glimpsed over. Every since I was young I was told that we live in a free country yet if you don't want to work a job and rent a house you would be a vagrant and in many places they will throw you in jail. If you don't believe it trying be homeless on the Vegas strip. I find that we are born into this world and told that property is either private or public but either cases we charge people with trespassing. Our system has numerous mentally ill people who are not given adequate treatment and find themselves in jail because they are sleeping on a park bench. Before the summer Olympics in Atlanta they rounded many homeless people and relocated them to places where tourists would not see him. We handle our homeless problem by trying to hide in the same way that a little kid puts is whole mess in the closet or underneath the bed. Yet we seem to have enough money to go to war in Iraq for a humanitarian mission. Why is that humanitarian missions and oil are so closely connected. America we will help you if you have oil to help us. We did not seem to have a desire to rush into Darfur and help the people there. I want to create an atmosphere where politicians are held accountable. People will yell at me sometimes to get a job yet there are many jobs that don't benefit anyone and they make tons of money and in many cases their jobs lead to deaths of many people. We were so insistent that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction was it because we had the receipts. We do horrendous things in the name of capitalism not democracy and we play ignorant. If you look at history we have fabricated incidents so that we can use it as an excuse to go to war. To this day we have many US corporations who pollute the environment at home and especially abroad. They are not held accountable. Our whole system needs an overhaul and for that to happen we need more involvement and at least a 3 party system if not more. The balance of power lays within the Republicans and Democrats both of whom look out for their party beyond the benefit of struggling Americans.

I would recommend the powers of Craiglist for random part time work. And praticing a little patience and always be thankful for what we have gotten to experience thus far. Many blessings of peace and love.

Thanks Man. You gotta come here around May 1. You'll have a place to stay and I could show you some cool places in Chicago like Devon Avenue on the North Side. There is an Awesome little Festival in Southern Illinois the First Weekend of May in the Village of Makanda which is nestled right next to the Shawnee National Forest. It is about 7 hours train from Chicago to Carbondale and than I ussually walk or hitch the 10 miles south to Makanda. I have been going to there Festivals in May and October for almost 5 years. It is a Free Fest Outside in Nature next to the Downtown area of Makanda which is a Single Boardwalk with a handful of cool local owned artisan shops. There are hippies, country folk, artists, older folk, music, campfires, sometimes TeePees and more. Anyway just keep it in mind because if you are to come to Illinois this is the best place in Illinois along with Chicago. So if your lead here this would be a great time. We could meet in Chicago and than go to the Fest or meet at the Fest and Travel north to Chicago. Either way bro you got a Friend in Illinois who knows the Best of the City and the Very Best of the Country! What Kind of things would you be looking for in Chicago. I can do more research and travelling to find out even more about the city and get connects. Anyway I know anything can happen but I just wanted to let you know that you must contact me if you ever come through Chicago because I know whats UP.

but even though you are such a special soul, you are as human as anyone. I think that you do have a unique purpose and when God takes over your life it will be fullfilled.
