If you're not aware, I am running in the Newsvine Presidential Challenge. I am the Independent nominee. I am running against Killfile (D) and Andrew (AKA Online Apps) (R). The final voting is this week. If you'd like to vote for me, please go do so. The final challenge was to disclose what we would do in our first 100 days in office. My answer was as follows:
I will begin troop drawdown in Iraq and strengthen our effort in Afghanistan.
I would begin work on reversing the Bush tax cuts and closing the tax loopholes for corporations.
I would begin work on getting my health care program introduced to Congress.
I would remove the Social Security tax cap so that we could immediately begin to repay Social Security what was stolen from it under Bush.
I would immediately pardon all non-violent marijuana offenders so that we could immediately stop paying to jail innocent people, freeing prison space, and restoring rights to millions of innocent Americans.
I would order guantanamo closed.
The previous challenge was to select a cabinet. I selected the following:
Secretary of State -- Mike Meyers
Secretary of the Treasury -- Oliver Stone
Secretary of Defense -- Arnold Schwarzenegger
Attorney General -- Barack Obama
Secretary of the Interior -- Jello Biafra
Secretary of Agriculture -- Morgan Spurlock
Secretary of Commerce -- Kevin Smith
Secretary of Labor -- Richard Linklater
Secretary of Health and Human Services -- Michael Moore
Secretary of Housing and Urban Development -- Jimmy Carter
Secretary of Transportation -- George Carlin
Secretary of Energy -- Al Gore
Secretary of Education -- Al Franken
Secretary of Veterans Affairs -- Montel Williams
Secretary of Homeland Security -- Christopher Walken
Thank you to Mel for orchestrating all of this, and thank you to all of the other candidates who ran, including Killfile and Andrew who are still in the running.
Vote for Pedro ... er ... Vote Kevin Dicks for President!
