ALMOST Anything would be better that what we currently have. --VsCountStrum, 10:25 AM EDT
On a serious note, the problem in the United States isn't who the people have elected to represent them, it's the people.
As soon as people stop looking for someone to blame and realize we are ALL to blame, the sooner we can start tackling problems together.
Unfortunately we live in a third grade society where most people view the opposite party as having "cooties".
If I ran for president, I would say the first thing I would do is impose all government jobs with an IQ test. Followed by the internet.
An example of one of my speeches, (mostly because it's 9am and I haven't fully woken up)
"The time has come for our country to unite and say, "WE'VE HAD ENOUGH". No longer will stupid people be accepted into positions of power and privilege. No longer will we be led by the least among us. No longer will we sit there eating our morning breakfast, screaming "LOOK AT THIS IDIOT, A DAMN WALRUS WOULD DO A BETTER JOB!" From now on you must earn your keep, Congress... You must prove your paycheck, Senate... My goal going forward would be to rid these positions of all intellectually void candidates. Also, no longer will positions be filled by empty shells. If you become incoherently stupid during your term, whether you've suffered a stroke, or decreased brain functions as a result of doing way too many drugs (whichever happens to be Hank Johnson's case) http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/washington/2010/03/hank-johnson-guam-.html...
THATS IT!!! BACK TO RETAIL FOR YOU!!!
...Also on a side note, the internet will now require personalized entry via ID cards (complete with real time IQ virtual stamps), and all websites will be given IQ restrictions in order to view the content... Pushing 99?? Looks like you're stuck browsing yahoo. Rockin' low 70s? Straight to AoL for you! Lower? CNN.com all day long baby!
"Change? You want Change? YOU CAN'T HANDLE CHANGE!!!" <3
