Charles Brooks, 45th President of the United States. Um….sounds good to me. This is probably the first and last time you’ll see it in print. Just think…the last time we had someone remotely qualified to be president, was George Bush, the 41st President. In my opinion, he was probably the most qualified individual to ever occupy the Oval Office. George H W Bush served as the 41st President; the 43rd Vice-President, a Congressman; Ambassador; and Director of Central Intelligence, and a veteran of World War II. Other noted backgrounds brought to the Presidency were National Guard pilot, former governor, a neighborhood organizer; not to mention a movie star, and peanut farmer. So, why can’t I be the next President? I once held the rank of First Class Boy Scott. Seemingly, our government is leading us down the yellow-brick road. What’s happened to our Pride, our Conscience; and our Patriotism? We’ve kicked GOD-out, and brought the God-less in. Our morals are at an all-time LOW and our DEBT at an all-time HIGH. For starters, I would propose: Voting against ALL incumbents; eliminate the IRS; impose a National Sales Tax; in-act Term Limits; subject all elected officials to the same laws and benefits as the common citizen; eliminate secret service protection to former presidents after 5 years of leaving office; and, determine the Presidential Election by Popular Vote. Only in America! …Blessings… cjlb…9/5/13
