I have decided to NOT run for the presidency

While looking for something else, I stumbled upon this, and it's still appropriate
It's come to my attention, that we just may have TOO many problems.

Perhaps we have hit that proverbial "wall".

Where do we start to tackle all these problems we have?

We have unreliable sketchy elections
We have unreliable sketchy polititions, no matter HOW we (s)elect them
We have tumble-down schools all over the place
We have tumble-down bridges, overpasses & highways everywhere

Our worldwide reputation has never been worse
Tens of millions of us have little or no affordable access to medical care

Our media chooses to focus on fluff and denies us necessary knowledge
Our children have minimal access to the education they need, to stay above the poverty line
Millions of old people have to choose between food & shelter or medicine & doctors
Our military is breaking under the strain of misuse and overuse

Most people have no savings
Many people have no hope
All of us are dissatisfied. most of the time

Our food supply is threatened
Our water supply is likely tainted with many chemicals
Our protecting wetlands are being destroyed

Certain groups of people have been granted scapegoathood:
..........1. Hispanics
..........2. Gays
..........3. Fat people
..........4. Smokers
..........6. Stay-at-home Moms
..........7. Work-outside-the-home Moms
..........8. Boomers
..........9. Old people on Social Security
........10. Single Moms
........11. Middle Easterners & South Asians
and many more...

It seems that the only group of people who are "okeedokee" are the college-educated "men in suits"..white men in suits.. white men in suits, with MONEY.

The rest of us seem to have about every problem known , with the possible exception of scurvy or beriberi..

Who would even WANT to try and take on all these problems? He/she would certainly have to know that no matter what they do, 50% of the people will hate their guts for even trying to change things, and the other 50% will hate their guts for not doing more..

I'm glad I have decided .to NOT run for president
