Porn Star Stormy Daniels drops her bid for Senate.....

It seems like only last week (it was) that adult film star Stormy Daniels was declaring her intention to run for a seat in the Louisiana state senate. This week, she broke the hearts of Politico writers looking for an excuse to write about porn and politically astute porn fans across the nation when she announced that she would not attempt to become the next senator of Louisiana. But why not? She lacks the funds to run, she says: “I am not running for the US Senate for the same reason that so many dedicated patriots do not run — I can’t afford it.” Daniels did offer a message of hope: “We will keep fighting so that one day the voices of the dishwashers, cashiers, bus drivers and porn stars will be heard just as loudly as those of the lawyer, the banker and the insurance company executive.” Amen. [Politico]

I'm almost sorry she's not running, I would totally vote for her if I was in Louisiana.  The statements in blue are probably the best thing I've read on the internet all day.

 I think this speaks volumes that only the rich and affluent can run and it should not be this way.

 I think the 'voters' are a bit to blame in that. They won't vote for those who don't seem to 'have the big support of one of the two parties' behind them. Don't know that you can blame that ALL on the people who are able to get the money. Just sayin...

I agree.

 DH said and I agree:

"If you want to make sure that the less affluent are represented, it doesn't mean you have to have a less affluent person in the office. It just means that whoever is IN the office has to represent ALL of the people their office is supposed to represent. If they don't...vote them out."

I don't know that I would have confidence in a person holding office nationally, who had not demonstrated some success in business or life in general. Sorry, if you think that makes me a snob. It isn't that, it's that I think they haven't likely encountered the complex responsibilities or issues perhaps that they will need to grapple with in office. How do we guage their abilities in those areas if they have no background experience is similar areas of responsibility?

 Just on point; but most people who are in successful in business do not have the money to run either. There is a lot of talent in the US that does not make money the end all be all and may give of their time and money to help others rather than hold on to it. Then again there are those who have the money but never touch it, citing the handful of multimillionaires who have decided to live on the street of which I know three in my town. However, generally speaking, many of those who run for office do not personally hold the funds either but they bow to someone.
