"WE WOULD ALL LIKE TO VOTE
FOR THE BEST MAN BUT HE
IS NEVER A CANDIDATE".
I GOOGLED my name not long ago just to see what is out there. You should do the same it might surprise you. I found another Roger Ringer in Kansas and another in the east, one who raises chickens in Arkansas, and one in Arizona, plus a few others.
What surprised me about the Roger back east was that he announced that he was not going to make a run for the office of President of the United States. Darn! I could have had a lot of fun with that.
So what if I were foolish enough to really run for President. Given my distaste for most politicians, I would want to do something that would be different than all the boring things that are going on. Of course I could not begin to make the splash that Mr. Trump is doing. I do admire his confounding the sanctimonious press and firing back at all who would make him take water for what he says. Even if he should.
I heard a commentator a few months back commenting on how the race should be run for president and I thought that his ideas were great. So I will not take all the credit for these thoughts being totally original.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA-ROGER RINGER:
As a candidate for the highest office in the land I would like to lay out how and who I would have to help me run this country and bring back the pride and prosperity. This so everyone else who makes vague promises that they never intend to keep will have to pony up with some real ideas.
- I WILL ANNOUNCE MY RUNNING MATE RIGHT NOW.

- I WILL VETO ANY BILL FUNDING FOREIGN AID FOR COUNTRIES WHO ARE AT WAR WITH US OR NOT A FULL ALLY.
- I WILL DISSOLVE THE EPA AND DISTRIBUTE ITS ORIGINAL MANDATES TO THE DEPARTMENT OF INTERIOR. PLUS CUT OSHA AND PLACE IT UNDER THE DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE

- THE POLICY OF MULTIPLE USE ON PUBLIC LANDS WILL BE RESTORED AND A BAN ON MOTORIZED FIREFIGHTING AND RESCUE UNITS IN WILDERNESS AREAS WILL BE OVERTURNED.
- ORGANIZATIONS THAT FILE LAWSUITS AGAINST PRIVATE CITIZENS ENGAGED IN LAWFUL ENTERPRISE ON FEDERAL LANDS WILL BE REQUIRED TO PAY ALL THEIR OWN LEGAL FEES AND SHOW JUST CAUSE FOR A COURT TO HEAR THE CASE.

- ALL AGENCIES WILL DECREASE THE STAFF BY 10% IN THE FIRST YEAR AND MANDATE SIMPLER MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES.
- ANY MEMBER OF THE GOVERNMENT THAT IGNORES A SUBPOENA FROM CONGRESS SHALL BE CHARGED WITH CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS AND HELD UNTIL THE ORDER IS SATISFIED.
This would set the tone for a real Presidential bid and of course, I would not be elected. Even if I won the popular vote, the cemetery votes against me would defeat me. As well as the parties would sell the office to the highest bidder. Oh, I guess they already do that.
