Americans need someone to lead them forward through the madness of these times. Hopefully, if you do run for president, and should you succeed, you will help restore the rights and responsibilities of the constitution and the American people. World affairs require a strong American government, bot not at cost of the liberties and people which that government was created to defend. Hopefully, whether you run for president or not, you'll continue your great citizenship activities. I just got done watching a video that tried to make it seem that a celebrity had no business expressing disapproval over the president or actions in Washington. Which is very stupid. It's like saying a farmer has no say so, nor a teacher, or a singer, or a fast food employee. We are all Americans and all of our livelihoods are important. Every single one. Your being a celebrity only makes it easier for your voice to be heard. Thank you for speaking and acting on what has been in the hearts and minds of Americans, please continue to do so.

Another thought, along the educational and economic line, and more... How about schools actually buy textbooks, materials and supplies, library books, etc. that are made in the U.S. Or we could just wait till all our books are in printed in china. There are so many issues - the manufacturing origin of a #2 pencil and black ink pen to the quality of our food. It amazes me that a government that comes up with a "food pyramid" guideline doesn't support the farmers that produce it, especially in the order of their recommendations. Why, these days, it could be against the law to grow your own food in a garden if you're not doing it the "right" way with fertilization, etc. Are you ready to tackle the upcoming food shortages when the people ask where are the farmers, what has happened to the land? Can you keep your American made pencil sharpened while tackling these and greater issues? There will be sacrifices, it can be no other way. Will you sacrifice the people for your own or a private interest gain - or will the sacrifices be made for the people?

Is it better for you to run for president With a plan or to communicate that plan to the people so it may possibly be made effective from "the bottom up"? Or both? Do you have a plan?
