I was thinking the other day about why do only professional politicians run for Congress. I mean if someone like Waters or McKinney can get elected why couldn't I. I thought it may be good to inject my opinions into the political debate and who knows possibly move some of the opinion in my direction. I would campaign on the promise to vote no on everything. We have enough laws and we pay enough taxes. I then identified two things that would have to be done. 1) raise money. At first this would seem like the largest challenge since the front runner here has raised over $700,000. Let's just say this is not the largest challenge. 2) Get on the ballot. This has proven the be the most difficult thing. You cannot run as an independent. You must gain a nomination from a party official. This seems almost un American that so many roadblocks would be thrown up to prevent people from seeking public office. I really had no point just wanted to vent.
