Presidential Campaign Opening Speech, Election 2016
Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for taking the time to be here today. And thank you for your letters urging me to run for President. My answer is yes, I will run. I will campaign as a “placeholder” President and my campaign message will be summed up in three words: RebuildUSA.today.
Like my party, I embrace infrastructure update in all the 50 states. I embrace technology. I also embrace the new age of American energy – which is not going to be about oil and gas alone, but about water farming. And since our strength as a nation is in our diversity, ladies and gentlemen, I am happy to use this occasion to introduce my party – the PILGRIMS Alliance Party of America.
The Pilgrims Alliance is a progressive party made up of Veterans, Farmers, Women, Students, young Graduates, Workers and Immigrants. It is a party of Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Greens and Libertarians. Our goal is to RebuildUSA.today by applying skills developed in the military into civilian life.
The national anthem says, “freemen shall stand between their loved homes and the war’s desolation.” All in a “Heav’n rescued land” that praised “the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation! Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,.”
Ladies and gentlemen, this is persistence, perseverance and readiness to press on. This is the backbone of my campaign. If elected President, I promise you, the freeman will not need to remain chained to old ways of doing things. And as they say in Spanish, “Abracemos esta madrugada. El mundo siemprez está mirando.” Embrace this dawn, the world is watching.
For half a decade now, I have been advocating for the improvement of women’s education, healthcare, insurance, pension and maternity leave. Not because it is the right thing to do, but because the world around us is changing, and since the WOMAN of today is multi-tasking, then, “in the words of Mitt Romney” I’ll say, why not make issues affecting women today “the civil right issue of the future.”
Go everywhere in America today, look around you, truth is we need: Immigration reform. Christ, after all was a child immigrant. Joseph was an immigrant and a slave. If the Pharaoh was kind enough to see the good in Joseph and his brothers. Then why are we refusing to see the good in our immigrants?
We need Tax reform – so aging American farmers could benefit from sweat equity. And younger ones – getting into farming won’t have to be afraid of the effect of environmental shift on food safety and production.
If elected President, my promise to the American farmers is, I’ve got your back for the millennia and will do everything within my power to enhance biosecurity measures all over this land.
We need to upgrade our Laws – so rules and regulations affecting wages, working conditions, intellectual properties and campaign donations could catch up with technology, with economic development and with demographic changes.
And as we get serious about Education reform, we must also remember, teachers need a better environment to work. Our Police departments and Fire fighters need better equipments to carry out their duties. I will adequately fund and equip them for the millennia, neither will I pass over the need of our teachers.
Note: Veteran Affairs Office might soon be a thing of the past. Why? Because deploying technology means: less cost, no more battle fatigue, no more battle stress and no need to worry about mental state of Veterans.
Well, my view as a candidate and as someone who use to wear uniform is: as we focus on technology, then we must increase budget for Veterans’ education and skill.
As President, I will not only make available a series of special budgets to meet these needs, I will also raise the level of our special forces to that of an armed service group. Fund them like we currently do the Army, the Navy and the Air Force.
Yes, I use to work with them, so I will fund them with bias. But that is because I realize our security is only our health, it is our wealth. And how we spend it counts.
Remember, “In God is our trust. And so long as “the star-spangled banner” waves over “the land of the free and the home of the brave” then I see it as a duty to RebuildUSA.today. Ladies and gentlemen, my type of President is one that care about your interests. Destiny or destination, I will not lead you to hell.
