A strange reality has crept into my mind. I am naive. I truly believed that America is a place where one can do anything one sets out to do. It seems that I am wrong! Like everywhere else on earth only the rich can do anything they want. If you are rich you are allowed to run for President. If you are poor, you are not! If one is rich a run for the Presidency is looked upon as viable. If you are not rich it is looked upon as insane.
When my family and I moved to California from Rockford IL I had a dream to make it in Stand Up Comedy. We had no money and yet with hard work and some talent I have done very well. With this president I felt that I could do the same thing in politics. “Wrong, joke breath.” All the “Duck billed platitudes” about America don’t seem to be true.
Oh, we talk a good game but when it comes right down to it, big money rules! I’m sure that this is all obvious to you but I I am a “Cockeyed optimist.” “I dream the impossible dream.” I am an unrealistic fool!
To think that I could and would be The Leader of The Free World! Little, old, me. I should be ashamed of myself. I should go stand in the corner with a dunce cap on my head. I should write, “I am not good enough” a thousand times on the blackboard. America! “The land of the free and the home of the brave” I truly believed that “I” could bring greatness back to this country with honesty and hard work.
But, maybe I am still wrong. Maybe it is, “Darkest just before dawn.” Maybe that miracle is just around the corner. Because a miracle is what I need. I need the sky to open up and a light to come down from the heavens with a voice that say, “Don’t give up! You will succeed.” I pray for that miracle every day!
I am Kip Addotta and I believe that I can be The President of the United States.
Thank you for the support that I have received, so far.
