Opinions about politics, politicians, the election, the candidates, and Pop’s own platform.
The latest major poll seems to show the American Confidence Party may still have a chance of winning this election!
I have seen some usually prescient polls that also give me similar hope.
Common sense, a willingness to share and compromise, and a friendly and welcoming attitude toward the opposition is the hallmark of our party!
An honest, issues-oriented campaign may still win the day!
At least I am sanguine in this course we have undertaken of being honest and straight-forward with the American people, and we will never compromise.
Collusion, my friends, not compromise!
That’s our ticket!
Vote often, and vote Pop!
Here I am accepting the nomination of the Greater American Confidence Party at our virtual convention.
Once we decided to hold a virtual convention, many of our logistical problems and political challenges were solved.
Without any real or living delegates, politicians and actors, we were able to have a perfect convention.
No hiccups, no mistakes, no snafus!
Everything went smoothly and efficiently.
This should be the goal of every political convention.
If I am elected President, I will end the fierce partisan conflicts between the two parties, which are basically just foolish, childish squabbles about money and power when there is plenty of both to go around.
I say it is time for the two major parties to quit bickering and get down to business. I believe that it isn’t non-partisanship that we need, but collusion.
The Greater American Confidence Party is not meant to replace the other two parties, but to bring them together.
We should be seen as enablers. If we can help them divide the spoils equally, and all the politicians get their fair share, then maybe they can get some of the people’s work done in their spare time.
Pop Haydn wins GACP nomination
I am proud to announce that I have become the nominee of the Greater American Confidence Party for President of the United States.
I am honored and nearly humbled.
Thank you all for your support!
I promise to run a clean campaign. I do not intend to even mention the other two candidates much less sling dirt on them. I don’t think I am any better a man than either of the other major candidates–both Romney and Obama are professional politicians just like me. Instead of attacks against my opponents, I intend to run on ideas–it is a lot cheaper than coal or gas, and I have an endless supply.
I want to govern from the center, with the money people and special interests on one side and the politicians on the other. I will be cutting up the pot. The people will be getting the same deal as always, but I promise to lower the overhead through better management.
For one thing, we can outsource the current congress. This will not only make things much more efficient, it will be much cheaper. You can buy third world politicians for much less than an American senator or congressman. They will have every bit as much concern for the taxpayers as our current bunch. Besides, having this sort of competition from the leaner and hungrier politicians from developing countries will help make our own politicians work harder and get back that edge they seem to have lost. This could greatly enhance their productivity.
I have no intention of deceiving the public. I am always honest, in my political speeches just as I am in my medicine oil pitches…people may find themselves sometimes a bit befogged by the preciseness and technicality of the language that I use, but I only lie once in a very great while…and then only when cornered or provoked.
I am in it for myself, folks! I only want the money. Power means little to me, as it requires too great a degree of responsibility. But I am not that greedy a person, either. I just want to live comfortably with little effort. In return, I will organize the crime and graft in Washington. I will cut out all the middlemen, eliminate duplication and therefore reduce the expense to the public.
I will provide the same quality of government that the people are used to, but at a much lower cost.
Some people see the many great challenges facing government, I see the many great opportunities facing me.
I am sorry that the convention and its activities were not announced publicly, but we thought it best to keep the convention completely virtual. Without any real or living delegates, politicians and actors, we were able to have a perfect convention–No hiccups, no mistakes, no goofs. Everything went smoothly and efficiently.
I will post photos this week.
I intend to reveal no details of my plans for changes once I am in office. No one wants to watch sausage being made…ha ha…
But the general economic plans I have outlined should be apparent to even a third grader. I don’t want to deceive anyone. I will be just like any other politician; but, if you elect me you won’t feel like such a dupe!
You will know what you are getting, and can never be disappointed…
Two years from now, no matter who wins this election you will be able to say:
“Don’t blame me–I voted for Pop!”
I pay equal attention to what both the Democrats and the Republicans have to say. I am not an ideologue. I am a huge fan of Clint Eastwood.
I took as much as I could away from both conventions, so I will eventually be selling both Democratic and Republican memorabilia on our website…
That shows I am a practical politician. I work in a completely non-partisan way. I would replace the current political impasse between the parties with more direct collusion…
I believe in everyone dividing things up fairly and responsibly…
There is no need for this kind of infighting and divisiveness in government–there is plenty to go around for everyone.
By organizing the graft in Washington, I think I can eliminate a lot of duplication and unnecessary expense.
We can provide the same sort of government the people have learned to expect, but at a more reasonable price.

I can’t seem to find my patriotic speech for this occasion, so I will crib this fine speech:
“next to of course god america i love you
land of the pilgrims’ and so forth
oh say can you see by the dawn’s early
my country ’tis of centuries come and go
and are no more what of it we should worry
in every language even deafanddumb
thy sons acclaim your glorious name
by gorry by jingo by gee by gosh by gum
why talk of beauty what could be more beautiful
than these heroic happy dead who rushed like lions
to the roaring slaughter they did not stop to think
they died instead then shall the voice of liberty be mute?”
He spoke. And drank rapidly a glass of water
— e e cummings
Happy Fourth of July, everybody!
There ought to be a LAW that nothing can go over 50 miles an hour…
If things go much faster than that, it makes it too hard to ever put any distance between you and somebody else.
