The exploratory committee investigating the possibility of my presidential run in 2012 has been working day and night, especially night, to scope out the electoral environment.
I am happy to report that I have received hundreds letters of support, and not one negative reply. However, I am still looking into the dynamics of the campaign so I have to report that I have not yet made a decision.
What do you think? Should we set up Party Party chapters in all 50 states so we can run electors all over the country? Should we join up with Willie Nelson’s Teapot Party?
On another subject, I have some thoughts about Party Party platform. You know that I have already proposed that we have a cultural offensive, that is, substitute the arts for war, rather than pursuing the “art” of war. To that end, I have already proposed we start removing our troops from the 80 countries in which it has bases. My suggestion for removal of the first base is Guantanamo, in Cuba. There are several reasons. The first is that it is so close to the us that it would not take a lot of planning to get out of there and the trip home would be very shot, less than 2 hours. But the best part of leaving Gitmo is the prisoners that the US holds there would not be removed, they would remain there for Cuba to deal with. Just think of it. A revolutionary country having to deal with terrorists. It will just create more problems for Cuba and at the same time will get us out of this delicate no-win situation. Let Raul Castro deal with the terrorists. The beauty of this is that its secular communism versus religious fanaticism.
I am still working on the Party Party platform and would appreciate your suggestions. Let’s see if we can do this!
