Because the only other choice is Hillary and she's way too intense.
Hillary gets blamed for a lot of things. The truth of each incident likely
will never be known. But I can state
with absolute certainty she deserves credit for the composition of this book.
In 1988 approximately twelve
pages took form. At that time, a serious but not so well conceived attempt at
a ballot position for The House
of Representatives was undertaken. The dream never died and over the years the
existence of eight more pages
emerged. As substantive, enlightening and well written as those twenty pages
turned out, by themselves they're
not likely to win a Nobel Prize. Maintaining that rate of production I could
expect a work capable of
catapulting me to the Presidency in about 2088. You can imagine the melancholy
considering the goal was to
become the youngest President ever. Thankfully, Hillary entered the race for
New York State Senator.
Now you may be thinking "this guy must really hate that -------."
But you'd be wrong. In fact the most
disturbing part of her entering the race occurred when the leaders of the
Democratic Party assured her that if
she ran they would eliminate any other candidate from the Democratic primary.
This aspect disturbs the voter
portion of my personality. However, the entrepreneur realizes the fantastic
opportunity to cash in on the
obvious backlash caused by inviting this carpetbagger in and promising to keep
the locals away. Later in the
book there may be some statements concerning how foolish the party leaders look
by giving the nomination to
someone with her views. But for now the most important thing for you to know
is the main purpose of this
book relates to my desire to make money. Now this may sound offensive at
first. But someday I may actually
get the opportunity to run for Senate and everyone knows only people with money
get elected. So you see
there's a public obligation to become rich so later I can fulfill my public
The book contains many good ideas and it may inspire you to cast a write in
vote. That can be achieved by
scribbling TFM in the appropriate portion of the ballot sheet. Keep in mind
voting for the person you believe
in conflicts with the general population's perception that only someone with a
chance to win deserves a vote
(otherwise Allan Keyes would currently be President). Therefore, you'll be
wasting you're vote this election.
Besides think of the consequences that would occur if someone spending less
than $20,000 received enough
votes to place in an election. Party leaders may realize the dissatisfaction
in their administration. Other
politicians may stop pandering to special interest groups.
Actually, encouraging you to write in TFM might not be such a good idea. The
FEC may try to make me do a
lot more paperwork and worse yet confiscate all the proceeds from this book.
That certainly would negate the
usefulness of expending all this effort since the main purpose of this
exposition is to generate cash. On that
note, anyone who really isn't much of a reader and wishes just to send cash can
send a check payable to TFM at
PMB 219, 5999 Southpark Ave. Hamburg, NY 14075. Remember this is not a
campaign contribution! Money
will be deposited into a personal checking account and used at my own
discretion. In fact to play it safe, please
don't write-in TFM on this year's ballot, even if after reading this book you
believe TFM belongs in the Senate
(or if you're more cynical - the Senate deserves TFM). We can still cause a
stir within the established parties if
enough of you write in your own names. Of course if your own name contains a
lot of letters and you only
have enough desire to protest a little it might be simpler just to jot down
TFM. Then there are those of you
that are a little shy and may not want to identify yourselves. In these cases
feel free to use TFM, just as long as
you realize this is not a serious attempt to elect someone.
Even though all proceeds from the sale of the book will be distributed in a
manner similar to other struggling
authors, the content doesn't vary much from what it would contain if this were
a serious attempt at public
office. There may be an extra disclaimer or two, as I feel obligated not to
If elected would I serve? Let's examine the pros and cons. Pros: 1) Six
guarantied years of employment 2)
Over $140,000 a year salary [compared to much less] 3) More time at home with
the family 4) Invitations to
play at the finest golf courses 5) An exorbitant ego boost. Cons 1) A lot
more reading 2) Meeting the rest of
the elected officials. Hmm, I believe the Senate's health plan will cover the
cost for any new glasses required
due to the extra reading. Dealing with a bunch of people with egos that dwarf
my own certainly will take some
serious adjustment. But after considering all the pros and cons, as long as
I'm elected without my knowledge
(so I can keep the profits of this book), I'd except the position and continue
to fulfill the degree of competence
you've come to expect from your representatives in Washington.
This book contains three distinct sections. The first section introduces TFM
through a series of exposť's on
normal everyday items. The second section examines specific political issues.
The third section contains
other interesting items. Some of which were written by authors other than TFM.
It contains some fictional
short stories to help break the tension created by solving the world's
problems. Read on and remember - Vote

The reflective signs on emergency vehicles stand out so much I decided to equip
all our vehicles with reflective tape as a safety precaution. You can see for
yourself it's effective. You can get tape at your local hardware store. It
should cost between $2.50 and $4.00 for 50". If you'd like a tfm4senate.com
reflective sign I'll mail you a pair for my cost of $23.00. They run 35 inches
by 3.5 inches. Either way be aware the tape affixes permantly to paint and is
not easily removed.
