How true. And if you'd just elect me president, all our problems would be solved.

Artists Revolutionary Party Platform:

Politics:

1. The Union of English-Speaking Peoples. Propose Union with Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. Rescue the home country from the clutches of the filthy Europeans (cut loose Quebec and let them join the EU--I understand there are going to be some vacancies soon).
2. Simultaneously, make the US officially bilingual, print our money in English and Spanish, propose union with Mexico and cede them back Arizona and New Mexico as a gesture of good faith.
3. Union of English and Spanish-Speaking Peoples, a political and economic behemoth that will assure our ascendancy in the 22nd century.

Energy Policy:

We don't need new sources of energy. We need better methods of spreading around the energy we have. What this country needs is a room temperature superconductor. Then we could beam solar energy down from space to the Mojave Desert and power the entire country with it. Therefore, my administration will sponsor a $10 billion prize for the first feasible high temperature superconductor. After one year, the prize will be reduced to $9 billion, after two years $8 billion and so on until it becomes clear that it just isn't technically feasible. But you know what? I think we'll have it within three years.

The Budget and the Deficit:

We need an income-gathering device that appeals to the stupidity and greed of rich people the same way the Lottery appeals to poor people; thus, the Federal Tax Raffle. Tickets cost $10,000 each. Once a month there is a drawing and the lucky winner never has to pay Federal income taxes again. Twelve tax-free millionaires a year is a small price to pay for the untold wealth this would bring in to the Federal government. Combined with the John Ekizian Memorial Tax on Condiments (a one cent tax on those little packets of ketsup they give away with fast food), and the deficit will be gone in no time.

Science:

Screw Mars. We need a Moon colony, now. If elected, I promise to put a woman on the Moon within four years.

Social Policy:

Womb-to-tomb social welfare for anyone who wants it, young, old, male, female, able-bodied, disabled, on one condition: You have to go to school. Eight hours a day, five days a week, fifty weeks a year. Study whatever you want but you have to study something. I predict this will clear the welfare rolls, permanently, within five years. Accredited artists of course will receive the dole permanently with no need to attend school, unless they wish to.

"For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong."

"My fellow Americans, as Secretary of Agriculture, I believe that we as a people need to adjust our domestic priorities to combat the rise in soy-based substitutes for American staples. It is now the official policy of my office to further the Beer-Boobies-Bacon initiative. This fight will not be easy, but it will be fun. Give me time, and trust my judgement. Thank you, and may Mods Bless America"

Trivia Jockey: HighOnCraic: But that's impossible! How will Drew maintain control without the bureaucracy?

Easy, Drew has a Death Star. And it's primary weapon is a site redesign.


His chief weapon is a site design...a site design and beer...beer and a site design.... His two weapons are beer and a site design...and ruthless inefficiency.... His *three* weapons are beer, a site design, and ruthless inefficiency...and an almost fanatical devotion to the boobies.... His *four*...no... *Amongst* his weapons.... Amongst his weaponry...are such elements as fear, surprise.... I'll come in again

Fista-Phobia: Uchiha_Cycliste: Fista-Phobia: Taramoor: 2020 Presidential Race

Internet Dentist and Black Cat

but they represent the same team... and quite frankly may be the same person.

Good point.


Give GAT or Corvus to Pocket Ninja. Leave the Internet Dentist with Gary.
