Why I am Running 4 PREZ

The Jokes Are On US!

It riles me when people call my bid for the Presidency a joke. The joke isn’t my campaign, the jokes are the absurdities that we’re being fed every day in this country by both parties. The fact that I’m the only real comedian in this race (have you seen the Demopublicrats attempts at humor?), should tell you I’m completely serious. Listen, the idea of the poor bailing out the rich MUST be a joke, Right? But it’s not funny. It just lays there. It doesn’t HAVE to be good because The Two Major Parties have walled the competition OUT. Can you say Monopoly, my Fellow Americans? The Humor Departments at both branches of Politics, Inc. are in sad shape simply because they can get away with it. Why not give a professional a shot at laughing to scorn some of the biggest bloopers and blunders on the national and world stage!

Let’s be serious for just a minute: The Founding Fathers warned against a time when political parties might own the Government. I think it’s safe to say that it’s been that way for a long time, now. The fact that anyone who runs for high office is smeared as a crackpot if their ticket isn’t stamped by Democrat-Or-Republican, Inc does not speak well for Democracy. I see it as my duty as a citizen to run for public office in these troubling times. It’s becoming more obvious to more people that these endless campaign cycles just amount to two bought-and-sold parties handing the talking stick back and forth when the booing gets the loudest every couple of years. It’s Show Business, and I know a little bit about succeeding in Show Biz. I’ve gotten great ratings and not-so-great ratings, but Congress’s ratings have been under the toilet, season after season. Their show needs to be axed and they should be replaced by people who are really acting on the Public’s behalf, not acting like they are. Under the present system, our alleged public servants are forced to peddle their influence in return for big Special Interest money to line their war chests. And, win or lose, that same money goes into the pockets of big corporate media who shovel it in from both sides as they sell us the whole stale spectacle.

Yes, it sure looks like comedy to me, one poorly delivered joke after another at our expense. They tell us that instead of gun control we just need to pack more firepower when we go to the movies or church for that matter. So, the response to horrific mass shootings is “If we only had more guns!” And I’M the comedian?

Money issues are often near the top of everyone’s To Do List, so let’s go there. The super rich are richer than ever, and pay less taxes than they did under Ronald Reagan. Well, where are all these jobs the job creators are supposed to be bringing? Ready for the punch line? They’re in China. This isn’t Left Wing Propaganda or a criticism of mega-rich people, because, now, Corporations are people, as the Supreme Court, in their judicious lunacy, have declared. So come on, big Oil, Big Tobacco, Big Insurance, Big Investment firms, Big Military Contractors, and, well, just billionaires, one and all. Step up and be national heroes – join the 100%! If you guys can’t take a hit for the team, who can? I say we have to reverse the shredding of the safety net of public services for people who genuinely need them. Things were a lot better for most Americans back when things were regulated and set up to get more working people a bigger share of the pie. And, I don’t remember there being a glaring shortage of rich people during those years when our middle class grew and prospered. Big, ambitious Gov’t administered programs like the GI Bill and Social Security and Unemployment Insurance are held up to ridicule, but they’ve made the difference between having a measure of dignity in life versus abject poverty for countless millions of Americans. Lots of older Americans who identify as Conservatives practically ran to the barricades when President Bush talked about taking their Social security to Wall Street. Still, the word socialism is demonized, as if someone as outspoken as me would be promoting an authoritarian system that stifles free speech.

And how about the War on Drugs? While murderous drug cartels pile up billions of dollars and buy politicians, abused legal prescription drugs are killing more Americans than the illegal ones. Prohibition creates and enables organized crime. “War on Drugs?” Now they’re selling pills on TV that cheer up the pills they sell to cheer us up. If we have to laugh to keep from crying, can we at least get some better jokes? I’m Roseanne Barr and I approve this message.

  1. Don’t throw your votes away on this has been TV star!!!

    • Well, I’m inclined to agree. NOT! It would seem to me a better deal for everybody to vote Barr-Sheehan2012 than to vote for the lying, thieving, murdering corporate-owned pair the Republicans and Democrats are presenting as candidates. At the same time, you gotta admire political parties that give you a choice of several wars against people who never harmed us to send our kids to their death as they murder innocent men, women and children in the name of peace. There is something to be said for political parties that have driven the economy of this country to ruin whilst their leaders and backers have gotten rich starving out the middle class. Middle class? We don’ need no stinkin’ middle class! It takes huge cajones to take over both the education system AND the mainstream media as instruments to disseminate their propaganda to the unsuspecting people of this country – and make them like it! I think it’s a huge political feat to take away our rights and build concentration camps to put us in right under our noses. I mean, hey, who will need a constitution to protect our rights when we won’t have any? It is a terrific tribute to corruption, these two wonderful parties that are running over us while we sit complacently and compliantly by and watch our own destruction as well as the destruction of the entire world. Whoda thunk the bestest country in the whole wide world would succumb so easily? Kudos to the richest of the rich! I could go on singing the praises of our current political system, but unfortunately, I’m busy trying to keep from laughing/crying at the fate of the Sleeping Giant (the American people) unless we wake up and take back what’s ours – Peace, Justice, and Freedom. Yeah, go ahead and vote for these hypocritical bastards, but kiss your right to criticize them good-bye if they’re “elected”. Go ahead, if you wanna get your sorry ass locked up without any hope for recourse, vote Obama/Romney. As for me, I say “bring it on, bitches!” It’s Barr-Sheehan2012!

  2. Living Dead Girl Nicole says:

    A joke is what we have in office now.. and the joke is on all the people that he fooled that voted for him.

  3. I find it pathetic, that us citizens feed into the BS Romney and especially Obama give out the world. With only words, citizens feed on that crap like a kid at a candy shop. And what happened when Obama became president? He took credit for what the Americans did. He is just as corrupt as any sold out politician.

    Roseanne, isn’t a politician. She’s a citizen. and SHE has my vote.

    Roseanne for president.

  4. It also riles me up when people say you are running for Prez just as a joke. I don’t care what they say I agree with your values,plans,etc. The 2 party system is BS and after all these years are there still that many people who buy into it? It boggles the mind. People fear change and fear is paralyzing so they march to the voting booths and do what they know…EVEN if they know both candidates in the 2-party system are just friggin’ out of their minds! Give me a break..THINK about it people, how many of you tuly believe in another 4 yrs. we will be any better if Obama OR Romney win? The country is a mess and it is time for REAL change, scary or not it is better then the shit that is just going to keep rolling downhill, yup..from the rich on top the hill to all of us at the bottom of it! How bout we take care of OUR country and the people in it? MJ being legalized is not a big deal, I have MS, I don’t live in a state where it is legal but it is ridiculous that people can drink their asses off then drive..you get the pic. I so agree Med. MJ should be a HEALTHCARE issue, not Criminal. I could go on and on but BARR/SHEEHAN may not defeat the big 2 this time but damn I hope it at least got some more peoples attention to how corrupt those parties are, haven’t we had enough 4year terms to prove that? TIME FOR A CHANGE!!…or you could just keep believing the hype & lay down and take it. I say NO, Fight On!

    • Christopher Michael Ward says:

      Right on! More people need to wake up, and i mean NOW! It is sick and i am sick of it.
      Don’t you think Roseanne is smarter then romney/ryan, and obama/biden people?
      THINK!

  5. The war on the american people as fought with prescription drugs as the weapon of choice is appalling. Doctors are now urged to drug test their patients with a urine test which they call routine but is anything but. The tests are designed to let your doctor, insurance company, job employer and anyone else who wants to know what you put in your body in your spare time, from legal alcohol to illegal Cocaine or what ever you may have in your system. It tests for any drugs your doctor has prescribed to you, and any he has not. and if the drugs are or are not found in your system, it is assumed by your doctor, the DEA and testing labs that if you are a drug dealer. You are either buying them or selling them depending on your test results which are assumed to be 100% accurate. One medical drug testing lab insists in its stats that approx 40% of all Americans are not taking their prescription drugs as prescribed.
    In some places in all states it is even scarier. In Kansas, my friend was pulled over and police officers found pot in her car. Although she uses it as a medication it is not a legal medication in Kansas. She was on her way home from picking her kids up from school and the pharmacy when pulled over and her vehicle searched. The police not only took her pot they also took all her prescription medication, including her hormones, xannax, methadone she was using legally to withdraw from a narcotic pain medication, she was prescribed after a terrible accident.
    Because of the pot, her doctors refused to refill her prescriptions according to some Kansas policy It was strongly suggested she enter a mental hospital for a week to go through withdrawals, even though she is a single mom of young teens. She refused the psych ward, and took to her bed at home and spent this last summer in full witdrawal and medical on set menopause, and feeling like she was going to die. All for smoking a joint. If you have a glass of wine daily, and then have a medical emergency where a narcotic is needed to ease your pain, the wine may make the doctor decide not to prescribe you narcotics, unless of course you are a homeless expendable member of society then he may send you home with enough Vicodin to kill 5 homeless people.
    But don’t take my word for it. I refer you to a medical testing lab, Quest Diagnostics, one of the labs who encourages doctors, hospitals and clinics to violate your constitutional amendment rights to not be illegally searched, via a piss test, in a routine doctor’s office visit and not to have to go through cruel and unusual punishment, which is total withdrawal from addictive drugs your doctor was responsible for addicting you too, if they find “street drugs” including booze in your system. Im not sure if we are allowed to leave links so I will say to check out Quest Dianostics then the sub menu for physicians and testing for drug abuse. We are losing our freedoms with prescription drugs which leave us bedbound and to stoned to get up and have a normal day. Being tested and being accused of not taking with your medication may have dire results.
    We need good healthcare. A vote for Roseanne Barr and Cindy Sheehan is a vote to stop illegal searchs and seizures of our bodies by doctors and insurance companies, and not telling you they are doing these tests. Always ask for a copy of ANY MEDICAL TEST OR XRAY. you paid for it it is your right to have a copy for your own records. Ask for it and get it and if they are illegally testing you for booze or pot or even hormones you can tell them NO! legally, and site them the law. Be prepared if they are prescribing you narcotics or anti anxious medication they may cut you off cold turkey if you are also smoking pot or having a beer. Put a stop to this illegal search and seizure and cruel and unusual punishment which in no way fits the crimes. Vote BarrSheehan2012

  6. No doubt I am voting for Roseanne and if she wins presidency I will then know there is a god.

  7. We need the peace and freedom party in ALL 50 states, ohio is fucked up with just the two bullshit parties. BARR/SHEEHAN!!!

    i am not an American, I consider myself a citizen of the planet, with serious concerns regarding not only the influence your governments behavior has on the rest of the world, but also, how they promote, sell and implement production to achieve their goals.
    I have a very limited knowledge of how your senate & congress works, that too worries me, but I have been looking at it since Obama 1st came into the public spotlight talking transparency as well as other things which he hasn’t seen through, from what I can see, this concerns me.
    I don’t like Romney for all the Obvious reasons, he lies a lot , that concerns me, my own government also do that, I live in the UK, in England though by nationality I am Scottish, though as I said a global citizen, I live under the rules of a corrupt government, I have 1st hand experience of their corrupt behaviors, this is irrelevant in regard of this comment, but obviously concerns me.
    I only recently discovered you were a presidential candidate and have been following you on twitter, I like much of what you say in regard of your intentions of what you would do should you succeed, and shall continue to follow your progress and comment with great interest.
    For now, I wish you well.
    kind regards,
    june

  9. I love Roseanne and her beliefs. I would love to see her win the election. The world would be way better off with her as president than some political idiot who only wants to line his own pockets. We need to rid the world of all men. There would be no war or poverty and the world would be a much better place.
    ROSEANNE FOR PRESIDENT!!!!!
