President Willie Nelson

Why “Willie”? Why not?

Let’s look at this from a historical perspective. We’ve had “Ronnie” aka Ronald Regan (R) the Actor who could have won another Academy Award if the GOP had a vote. He was governor of California, then President, and will live forever with his quote: Mr. Gorbachev… tear down this wall!

And don’t forget the Reaganomics that ultimately created the former fall of Wall Street stock, dubbed Black Monday, on Monday, October 19, 1987.

Now we’ve been privileged to have Arnie aka Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) the Body Builder/Actor /The Governator who has done little to bail out California from its down the tubes debt problems. Arnie is also infamous for one of his famous movie quotes: I’ll be back!

Then there is comedian satire guy Al Franken (D), just elected to his seat in a hotly contested race. Franken, to my knowledge, has yet to make any earth shattering utterances except for: Wow, that was a close call!

So, Why Willie Nelson? ( *) Texas

I like the idea of having a writer, composer, guitar picker, singer and Country Music Hall of Famer as President. He already brings more credentials to the table than most.

More than that lipstick face, money-grubbing, wanna-be celebrity from Wasilla. And more than Newt “The Coot” Gingrich, or Mitt “The Pits” Romney. The GOP has some real beauties out there don’t they?

If Willie was a Presidential candidate…

Bill Mahr, Larry King, The Nite Ranter, every NASCAR fan, Country Music fan, redneck, marijuana smoker, farmer, most rockers, bikers, most middle class Americans, every average blue collar American, all brewers of PBR Beer, Budweiser, Jimmy Dean Sausage and his millions of fans would vote him into office.

Hey, think about this… No boring speeches, just music. When things are bad: On The Road Again. When all is good: Angels Flying Too Close to the Ground, and when every problem has been handled, Willie & Hank Jr. sing All My Rowdy Friends are Coming Over Tonight.

And just think of the Presidential victory celebration — it would make Woodstock look like a flop — with music by: David Allan Coe, Elton John, Billy Joel, B.B. King, ZZ Top, Eric Clapton, Foreigner, Bono, Bill Clinton (on Sax), Bruce Springsteen, Kris Kristofferson, Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, Joe Cocker, Black Eyed Peas, Merle Haggard, George Jones, Dolly Parton, Styx, The Four Tops, Faith Hill, Pip Parrish, Carlos Santana, Ziggy Marley, Cowboy Cadillac, Aron Neville & the Neville Brothers, Sheryl Crow, Huey Louis & The News, The Charlie Daniels Band, Derek Trucks, Carly Simon, Stevie Wonder, James Taylor, Peter Frampton, The Sean Chambers Band, Barbra Streisand, The Eden Rocs, Booker T & The MGs, Andrea Bocelli, Bobby Rush, EminEm, AC/DC, Black Oak Arkansas, The Who, The Rolling Stones, The Rockers, Jackie Evancho, Susan Boyle, Paul Simon, Ringo Starr Band, Paul McCartney & Wings (with Ringo on drums), Eagles – “Road to Eden Tribute to Willie” – The Live Album , Lady GaGa, Boy George, Glenn Campbell, Lionel Ritchie, Madonna, Bo Diddley, Chubby Checker, Chuck Berry, Mel Tillis and Hank Williams, Jr.

Note: This is only the first day venue.

Now, That’s What I’m Talkin’ About!

Willie Nelson

Just the idea of being able to write this as a free man… is what I still hold so dearly about this country…”our” Country.

So, here is my question:
Who will you vote for to uphold our founders’ principles since there are only a few in power in DC who have our best interests as a nation in mind?

Thanks, Willie… We Love ya!
