The Presidency Generation

Today's song is I Believe In You, from the musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, released as a film in 1967.

I believe the next President should be under fifty years of age. The time has come for older politicians to retire from Presidential races. A new torch needs to be passed in January 2009.

I'm not voting in the next Presidential primary. I'm going to neutral in the next primary so I can save my vote for a young candidate in the 2008 General Election.

I hope most Americans decide to stay out of the primaries too. Let the political parties dream up some new approach to determine candidates, an approach that values the ordinary citizen needs and not the ancient political party process.

Any party that puts forth a Presidential candidate over age 50 can forget about me voting for them. Times have changed and they better recognize that change by the electorate. Remember November 2006? Americans want change and they mean it.

One reason I'm less concerned about political party affiliation in the next General Election, is simple. America is going to face situations it never faced before from 2009 onward. For that period to be managed right, I want a younger President in-charge who was overwhelmingly elected to be in-charge, and not some old political hack, beholden to the old guard. Accept the torch will be passed or be burned by it, there is no third choice!

I'm still a Centrist and will be when I vote for President in November 2008. Having a young Centrist President in January 2009 will be cool!

I don't know who that person will be yet, but it will be that way...

A message for those that been hiding under a rock for some time now. :-)

Those living in the light for a couple decades now already accept this as the Gospel. When it comes to Microsoft business practices, this is old news, once again validating that there is nothing new under the Sun.

Could this be the real cause? When I get a chance to break away from my computer, iPod Nano, cell phone, and TV, maybe I'll have enough energy and desire to contemplate that article's claim. ;-)

Okay, that was a short break. I've decided to mention my friend and mentor, Gene Weed, has posted a new version of his Atlan video on YouTube.

Too bad you're over 50, Gene... ;-)

In reading this article, it seems that believers in the Global Warming Conjecture like Al Gore, should be spending the next several years in China, doing their best to convince that nation's leaders to cut back deeply on emissions there.

It's an easy mark to pick on America in it's open society with Freedom of Speech. Their mission would impress me more if Al Gore and his legions would demonstrate in a place like China. Now that would really be worth an Academy Award performance by him. I'm not holding my breath for that. The proof is in the pudding, Al! Oh, and even if you were under 50--not a chance! I'm voting for a leader.

For this day, I mention the following related Digital Insight.

What To Ignore When To Object (Created in October 2003)

In either formal or informal situations, it is important to stay true to yourself. You may wish to pursue certain roads in your life; some may be better roads than others. The journey is the most important part. Along the way, some will try to persuade you to stop, or to deter your progress. You alone determine your plans, no one else can make decisions for you.

Your choices may not always be popular with the majority. When you feel the need to calibrate your position to theirs then you may object. When you continue along your path unabated then you ignore them. Choose wisely, but make the choice yours and yours alone. Using my own words, I quote a portion from that page's narration:

"Having yourself understood in perspective is important. Keep the titled concept in mind for optimum comprehension and appearance."
