If I Ran the World....

  • Presidential Candidates would only be allowed to campaign for three months.
  • They would be fined for the lies found in their ads.
  • Pundits would not be allowed to comment after debates.
  • There would be NO POLLS. The only poll that counts is on November 4. It doesn't matter who you say you are going to vote for until you actually cast your vote!!!
  • Christians would realize that Not All Christians are Republicans, and Not All Christians Are Democrats.

Fined for the lies?

WHAT A GREAT PLAN!

Ivy said...

Works for me. It's hard to keep from getting cynical, isn't it?

Diane said...

Singing Owl, maybe we could balance the budget ;)

RevDrKate said...

Can we start a write in campaign..."Diane for world-runner"

doubtisgood said...

I would soooo vote for you--and I would add one more rule--the candidates ads could only talk about themselves, not their opponents.

Border Explorer said...

I like that, Doubtisgood. And let's add campaign finance reform to the package.

Also: LOLing on balancing the budget by putting fines on campaign lies.

Jan said...

I so agree! Wish you ruled!

Lauralew said...

You betcha! Taciturn and I were talking about how the next presidential campaign will start Nov 5th. That is WAY to @#$! long!!!!!

Hot Cup Lutheran said...

diane for pres! scout for VP!

Diane said...

Scout has foreign policy credentials because she knows Siberian Huskys.

Hey, I've "seen" North Korea, probably more than any of the candidates. Maybe I could be your secretary of state. I've also flown over the Sahara desert. That should count for something.

FranIAm said...

I wish you ruled the world.

Deep sigh.

Your list (plus the add-ons from blogger buds) is the most sensible thing I've seen yet. You've got my vote.

Barbara B. said...

Yep, you should run the world. And I'll be in your cabinet. :)

DogBlogger said...

Yours is the most solid plan I've seen this election cycle.

And I approve of Scout's foreign policy experience, and add that she has had German and Australian blog friends.
