There have been no commercials on TV. There have been no radio ads. There has been no announcement by Lou Dobbs that he will run for president. Yet a new website set up to convince Lou Dobbs to run for president
has received more than $186,000 in pledges in just over its first day online.
The growing discontent of the American people at its current selection of presidential candidate put forth by both parties probably has a lot to do with it. I personally find all of the crop of candidates from both parties to be lacking. The front runners of McCain, Romney, Huckabee, Clinton and Obama all have pasts that speak volumes of what will happen to this country regarding illegal immigration. McCain, Huckabee, Clinton and Obama all have past records of being friendly and encouraging more illegal aliens through their past votes in Congress and actions as governor. Romney seems to have only referred to illegal immigration at the end of his term as governor and it plays as a political trick that he signed laws days before leaving office only to have them repealed by the incoming governor immediately.
This along with the lack of caring that most Americans see in the candidates as to what they are facing on a day to day basis is what I see as driving this support for a third party, Independent candidate. All the talk of Bloomberg running doesn't really have anyone excited either. Oh great, another billionaire running simply for power and ambition instead of what is good for the American people. Color me apathetic.
However, with Lou Dobbs many see the passion he has for the issues facing Americans. From outsourcing to the loss of manufacturing jobs to putting the American people above a foreign group of illegal immigrants, Dobbs does stand for the American people and that is why I think we see the groundswell of support beginning around him.
If you, like myself, are disenchanted with the current candidates, rather than complaining or not voting, maybe you should also think about getting behind a truly patriotic American. Besides, wouldn't it be priceless to see the faces of the two primary winners from the Democrat and Republican parties, who have been assured a 50/50 chance of winning the White House simply by being their party's nominee, when a true candidate enters the race?
Pledge your support today and lets start taking back America from the corrupt two party system and giving it to the only true party in this country. The American Party.
Lou Dobbs for President.
