Even though it’s a solid year away, the 2012 Presidential Campaign is already heating up, and with it, the same complaints about our electoral system that crop up every four years. Voters often say that they wish there was a viable candidate outside of the traditional two-party system, someone who could come in and shake things up so that we’re not necessarily limited to the same two choices.
This time, however, there’s a difference. One man has heard the call, America. One man is willing to step outside the established system: Dilbert creator Scott Adams has announced his candidacy for president, running as an independent on the platform of “managers are totally dumb, am I right?” And as unlikely as it seems, we here at ComicsAlliance think he’s a totally viable candidate.
REMEMBER THESE WORDS
I represent everything that is good and decent in the world, I am the voice of a whole new generation of youth who want to just be who they are. Youngins who want to achieve great things, and who are misunderstood. Kids with dreams. Kids who the last thing they wanna do is harm another human being but at the same time stand up for what they believe in pickin and choosin their battles. I bring hope to the underdogs and frustration to the haters. I am a messenger from God, he wants me to sacrifice myself and put my issues out there so others can learn from my mistakes and ignorance. At the end of the day there is only faith, and I’m the new poster boy for change, positive energy, peace and love. I am not a perfect man, however my mission is to better myself through song, ultimately finding inner peace and walking a more positive path. I am your hero. When you are weak I will speak to you, when I am weak you shall speak to me… the artist and fan bond is established now. We need each other, I need you all more than you need me. I will be here forever if I’m not here in the physical, my words will guide and hopefully inspire a movement of peace and love across the world… I’m not hip hop’s next big thing, I’m not the best new artist, I’m not one of the leaders of the new cool or whatever label you can give me, I am just plain ol’ “important”. I am incomparable to anyone, so cut the shit. I stand outside the bubble laughin at those inside it at the same time prayin they wake up and join the real… I am hope, and like Lebron’s rise to heroic feats, you are all witnesses. You’ve watched me grow from a kid from Cleveland, Ohio with this cool song that only a handful of people believed in, that everyone wrote off as a one-hit wonder, to being one of the most talked about artists this year and last… you can remain standoffish if you want, but the proof is in the pudding. You know Cudi, but you’re listening to Scott. I’m here, and my voice will live on forever. You haven’t seen, or heard anything yet. And like I said last year, I ain’t playing no more.
My music is: One small step for me, one giant leap for all weirdkind.
My definition of weird: Anybody who is a leader and follows their heart.
