You Cannot Run For President


When did our politicians become such pompous power-hungry individuals that they now want to control who is worthy of being on the same ballot? Some may think that is a rhetorical question and believe the ruling class has always been this way. But somehow, it feels different this election cycle. And this is on both sides of the spectrum and may morph to include the possible middle rail of a third-party candidate flying the No Label Party flag!

To set some ground rules, these are the only requirements set forth by the Constitution, which I still think has some power of its own in America:

The President be a native-born U.S. citizen; be at least 35 years of age; and have been a resident of the United States for at least 14 years.

That is it—three simple rules. There is nothing about asking the sitting President or candidate leading in the polls for permission. Desire the job, satisfy the three rules, and be ready to take the heat from both sides, and you are in. Enjoy the ride at your own risk and peril.

But nothing is simple in today’s America. Ask Robert Kennedy Jr. and Marianne Williamson. They both qualify and want to challenge Joe Biden to be the Democrat candidate for President. Not so fast. Joe Biden is not just the President but owns the seat until he is done with it. And that will not be until he and Hunter have squeezed every million possible from those who need access to the United States government. Joe does not need to campaign, raise money, debate, or acknowledge anyone crass enough to think they can take it all away from him-and that goes for anyone named Kennedy. After all, Joe believes that Camelot closed when Teddy died. Teddy was a great man who showed Democrats how to get away with murder! If Ted could escape murder charges, Joe could easily escape extortion and money laundering. Thank you, Ted, but please tell Bobby’s kid to step down.

The Republican side may not be much better. Donald Trump believes that since he was President and had his re-election stolen, he is entitled to run again without opposition. It doesn’t matter that he has been indicted three times by the Biden Department of Justice and awaits a fourth from the State of Georgia. He is running for President and doesn’t think anyone is getting in the way. Ironically, Trump’s approval numbers amongst Republicans go up with each bogus indictment, but his overall numbers decrease, and his chance of beating Biden gets more remote.

Trump also believes he does not need to debate challengers. He just has to berate them and hope to wear them down. His plan is working with some like Pence, Hurd, and Hutchinson. They probably will not qualify for the first debate. The rest of the field holds firm and must be beaten at the ballot box. Trump Will undoubtedly be the candidate despite his legal challenges. He has spent $40 million on legal fees and will need to dig deeper, but he will, and his lead is too great for DeSantis or Ramaswamy to overcome.

This election will be unique and embarrassing on the world stage. We will have a four-time indicted candidate versus a President entangled in an impeachment inquiry. There will also be a Joker disguised as a Third-Party candidate in the deck. Nobody knows for sure who that will impact more. So buckle up and prepare for the ugliest, most dysfunctional Presidential election in history, and may the least corrupt man win! Forget the RNC or DNC. This election should be held on a Monday night and sanctioned by the WWE.
