PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

The results from my exploratory committee are in and I am extremely proud to announce that as of today, July 16, 2019, I am a candidate for President of the United States of America. I realize that I am a true wildcard but I believe that once the American people understand what I intend to do and where I stand on legitimate issues, I will garner their support. RBG wrote, “Real change, enduring change happens one step at a time.”

I am not about making radical changes to the system with one exception. Do you remember Grover Norquist and the pledge he coerced Republicans to sign to not raise taxes? On Inauguration Day, I will ask each and every member of Congress to pledge not to run for more than 2 terms in office. Career politicians and political partisanship has all but destroyed the proper functioning of our government. If they refuse, it will be a spring board to secure a Constitutional amendment to ensure term limits.

I believe that in our democratic republic, the emphasis should be on democratic. That is what makes our society work. One of my goals will be to restore and emphasize the rights of all Americans. An American’s rights should not be recognized in one administration and withdrawn by the next. That is not American. I will also push for a Constitutional amendment to clarify what a “person” is in the election process which will reaffirm existing campaign finance legislation. The one thing that separated us from other countries and truly made America great was our democracy, our recognition of and support for the rights of man.

Healthcare, prescription medication, taxes and more will be discussed in future posts. Please feel free to contact me with questions, comments and concerns. Please visit my website at https://rpook.com. I look forward to presenting my vision of what America should be and discussing that vision with all of you.

Who Wants to be President

I am proud to announce that I have launched an exploratory committee to evaluate the feasibility of running for President of the United States. I wanted to get ahead of the apparent millions who will also be announcing. I am 100% completely and totally unaffiliated. I have conservative views and liberal views. I believe that having an affiliation stunts the intellectual process. (We may believe strongly in some aspects of someone else’s platform, be luke warm on other points and outright opposed to a portion. Labeled as a “this” or “that”, we feel an alliegance thus an obligation to support even the views we personally oppose.) As President, my views will be mine alone and will never trump the will and the needs of the American people. In my book “Who Wants to be President” I create a political party, the HOME party, an acronym for Honesty, Oversight, Morality and Ethics. I honestly believe that that is the only platform any candidate should ever need. I cannot propose that I will resolve any issue, only that I will work night and day to advance the will of the people; my job. I will use the tools I have to accomplish that, intellect, honesty, a dedication to oversight, morality and ethics. Please do not send me any money as I will pursue my goal totally self-funded or unfunded which will involve a lot of social media. If you want to help, purchasing my book would help to advance the cause but is not solicited or required.

Ebooks available on Amazon.com: https://www.amazon.com/Who-Wants-President-Ri…/…/ref=sr_1_1… I also have paperback copies which you can purchase by contacting me directly.

The country we currently live in has changed so significantly in the last 30-40 years that it seems that we have learned absolutely nothing from all of our past mistakes. Perhaps it’s just that we know so much more about everything in the information age. Whatever the cause, the problem requires action. The bottom line is that if we love our country, it is our responsibility to get involved and stay involved to advance and defend the issues that effect all of us in an honest and ethical manner that will provide the best results for the most of our fellow Americans. I am hopeful that the current upcoming generation will make significant change. They seem to have the ability to not only identify problems and obstacles to progress but also the creativity to develop realistic solutions. I welcome your questions and comments and also your support. I expect to make an announcement in the near future

3 Places I Never Have to Visit

fake-news-bnNorth Korea

Iran

Alabama  

I have 2 questions for voters in Alabama: “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” How do you teach your children morals and values, how do you look them in the face after voting for an animal?  #politics, #morals, #Alabama, #trump

Draining the Swamp

stopsign2Has anyone stopped to realize that the draining of the swamp would make it easier for the predators to find their prey?

Not My Hero

fake-news-bnWashington politicians are beginning to worry about the Trump administration’s accelerating downward spiral. Regarding the President, a Congressional leader and former unwavering Trump supporter stated, “He’s not my hero anymore. He got caught. I like people who don’t get caught.” #politics #fakenews

SPICER APOLOGY

fake-news-bnSince Sean Spicer apologized on CNN, a known fake news organization, would that make his apology a fake apology?

To be fair, Spicey was referring to chemical weapons in combat without considering the horrors of the holocaust. Overreaction by everyone – counterproductive. #WhoWantstobePresident #Politics
