In honor of the GOP taking control of the House and Senate, I must make a Republican joke. You know you’re a Republican if you ever told a child that Oscar the Grouch “lives in a trash can because he is lazy and doesn’t want to contribute to society.”
If a Republican is voted in as President next term, it will be very interesting to see what happens. According to many political analysists, that will likely be the case. Many of the Democrats who were defeated tired to disengage from Obama, to no avail. Just as Republicans tried to do with George Bush.
I like the idea of a split. Checks and balances. So, once again, I will throw my hat in the ring as a write in candidate. I would be so good. I would slash unnecessary spending, build our defense system back to where people would be afraid to mess with us or our citizens.
I would raise the minimum wage, only not just for fast food or Walmart employees, but also a higher minimum wage for those who went to college, at their own expense and are using their degree in their profession. After all, there are student loans to pay off and most worked hard to graduate.
I would also encourage increased wages for teachers, the most important and under appreciated profession there is, in my opinion.
Debates would be fun. Every time I would get my turn following another candidate, I would simply say, “You’re wrong”. That’s it. It would be funny. Or maybe, “You look funny”. Either way, funny. I’m not sure that funny gets votes, but I’m willing to give it a try.
My speeches would be stand up routines, which would be much more fun than they have been for a long time. Don’t you hate it when you’re watching one of your favorite programs and it gets interrupted by a presidential speech that really means nothing? If I decide to address the nation, everyone would think, “Cool, this is going to be fun!”
But, since the Giants won the World Series, the only really important thing is that the Miami Dolphins make the playoffs.
