You live in a Lottocracy where political positions are chosen at absolute random. One day two men in black approach you to let you know you have been chosen to be President of the United States, what do you do?

  1. I’ve said this before but it won’t be pretty the first couple years. Some people are gonna have to disappear. Some bombs are getting dropped. Law enforcement is gonna have some red tape removed until we get this ship on the right course. Zero tolerance for child abusers, thieves, rapists, murderers etc… the good news is that I’ll also be forming a secret police department as well as adding more cops and soldiers. So maybe some of these men that would have turned to a life of crime could avoid that and get on the right team

  2. If I have to serve, I’ll be the least visible President ever. Even less visible than Biden. They’ll call me “President Seclusion”.

    I’d run the country Eisenhower style. Appoint people who are able to solve most problems, and only let the really big issues get to my desk.

  3. I actually think this is the way. Think about the type of person that runs for office. It’s the people that avoid it at any cost that I want running the place, because they actually understand what a tough job it is, a long slog with little appreciation. They would be steadier than the attention whores and grifters we get in our system.

  4. Say “Arizona tea is now 1.01” hide in a bunker for a day. Wait for the purge to end. Then go outside and say “It was just a prank”

    I will rebuild America stronger. And I will make Ariozna Tea 0.98

  5. I proudly announce my intention of keeping the tradition of Lottocracy alive, as deliberate office seekers have proven to be sociopaths or psychopaths and even when not easily corrupted by more than two political terms.

    I pledge to safeguard The People’s right to bear arms, free speech, bodily autonomy, free assembly, and property rights. I furthermore pledge to support capitalism for small and medium size businesses, break up monopolies, and prosecute predatory business and employment practices.

    I will consult diplomatic and military experts to design a foreign policy based on minimal intervention overseas intervention and a defense policy aligned focused on homeland defense. I will disassemble all supports for turnkey authoritarianism such as domestic spying, partnerships with tech companies for consumer data, materials and weapons for militarized police forces, domestic surveillance, and warrantless physical and electronic searches. I will use the savings to cut taxes, build and maintain infrastructure, preserve national parks, and build a coherent medical social safety net that excludes insurance companies.

    I pledge to tell the truth with no spin or BS. This means I may be seen as abrasive. However, The People will know there’s nothing in lying that benefits me, as there is no follow on career.

    Regardless of the success or failure of those initiatives, I pledge to never serve beyond my term of office unless picked by lottery again. And then only after a forensic audit of the lottery conducted by my political enemies. I pledge to return to the job I held before I took office for the following decade after leaving office. In that decade I will not take more than $1000 a year in gifts from anyone for any reason.
