Deez Nuts for President 2016
Even though we are more than a year away from even considering who you should vote for President in 2016, you can’t help talk about one of the latest candidates making waves. And no, I’m not talking Donald Trump.
15 year old Brady Olson registered himself as an Independent with the Federal Election Commission last month, running under the name Deez Nuts. Think about that for a second. Deez Nuts… is running for President. How great is it that mainstream news outlets are using the term? Not only that, but it was the #1 topic trending on Twitter for a day.
In what is being hailed as “the most important election” in our countries history, Deez Nuts for President can only speak to the disappointment and overall dismal approval rating of our elected officials and the voting process. We are one of the few modern countries where Voting Day is not a national holiday. We only allow 2 parties to debate and receive federal election campaign money (thanks Ross Perot). We also have an election process bought and paid for by corporations and billionaires, not to mention perpetuated by the mainstream media outlets (bought, paid for and controlled by those same corporations and billionaires).
It’s no wonder Deez Nuts is even mentioned. Are there any legitimate candidates on either side? Naturally we forget about third parties whether it be Libertarian, Green or Independents. We know its early to when there’s a whole year of mud-slinging ahead of us but, do you believe there will be any change if you were to vote for any candidate today?
The Clinton’s and Bush’s are political dynasty. If you don’t already know there platforms and agendas should be quite obvious. Trump, although he speaks his mind, is flawed on so many levels that I don’t have the time or energy to list them. If you think I’m wrong, apparently you need a history lesson.
If I had to choose a candidate today – I might actually go with Deez Nuts. Where’s my t-shirt??
