America's Easy


If you wanted to run for President in this country under either major party, the talking points are pretty simple.

But, let's say you're running for President in Zimbabwe, where inflation is over 10,000% a month, and the unemployment rate is 80%. What kind of platform do you run on that could actually be attainable?

i appreciate you taking the "attainable" part of the thought exercise literally. But, we can set the bar higher than that can't we? :)

"I am not Mugabe." Its hard not to take the attainable part literally, though...it seems any slogan that isn't ZANU-PF gets you beaten or killed by the dictator in Zimbabwe these days.

yeah chris, i think you're right about the "can't be worse than the current." But, what kind of economic proposal could a candidate even offer to cause hope to stir among the populace?
