There are several major reasons I could not become President of the United States. The first reason is I usually do what I say I will do. Although some in Washington actually attempt what they promise, we all know the majority of those in Washington know how to look good while knowing nothing will ever be done. When the republicans promised to repeal the Healthcare bill, they knew with 100% certainty they could not as long as the Senate is controlled by the democrats and neither the House or Senate have enough votes to pass a bill without the President’s signature. The promise the republicans made was just to look good in front of the Tea Party; while all along, they knew they could not fulfill any promise as long as the democrats hold their share of Congress and the President was a democrat.

I could not sleep well at night knowing I intentionally lied to the very people who trusted me. The second reason I could not be President is the money. To be President in today’s world means the person who can collect the most money to purchase the office. We are not voting for the person but for the person who has the best advertising agents and the person who can buy more prime-time television time. We are not electing an official; we are doing what we are told and nothing more.

President Obama had his own commission to inspect the best ways to reduce the deficit. The recommendations of this commission were ignored and instead of working to reduce spending; the President decided to change the meaning of the demand of the people. The people wanted to reduce the size of government, reduce wasteful spending and to get our house in order. Instead of tackling this, he decided to reinterpret the goals of the landslide election of 2010.

Today we hear the people want a balanced budget. This is just one small part of the demands of the people, but the democrats have decided this is all they will do. Since the reduction of the government is ignored and balancing the budget is the focus, the old game of class envy can be used to keep things as they are. Since the cuts are out of the picture, the way President Obama wants to balance the budget is to take from those who have and give to those who do not have (TAX). Same old game and he makes it sound like that was the objective of the people during the last election and we still say nothing.

The third reason I could not be President, I would reduce the size of government. This would not go over too well with the people since it is alright to cut spending, but only on the programs that do not affect them. The people want to keep the gifts of the government while cutting someone else. To have effective change, we would need to cut the social programs for everyone, no exceptions. This would not go over well at all with the people. So the major reason I could not be president is simply this. If the people want to bankrupt the country, I surely do not want to be in power when it happens. Remember this, “Socialism always fails when the government runs out of other people’s money”.

Some might claim we are not a socialist country, but I beg to differ; private property rights are all we have left of our republic. The government controls everything else, because we let them. I might run for congress though, I hear it is a lifetime job in the new United States. Just think of all the power I could amass in 10 years. Maybe that is why nothing ever really changes. If we only flush half of the toilet, the smell never changes.
