They Can’t ALL Be Winners

I have to remember that. I keep trying to convince myself that I have to produce something profound, or revealing every time I write so that more people can understand what’s going on in my head. My head says “Tick tock! People need to know all they can so they can make an informed choice…”. Then my heart feels compelled to search itself fully, to stop my mouth from saying something that’s more emotional than thought out.

And that brings up the difference between Candidate Jack and Me. Where do these two things reside, do I NEED to do that? That is what cost Hillary Clinton the Presidency. She does have a personality, even a sense of humor. She never let that out in a genuine way. Only when she was speaking for herself did she reveal who she was. It’s only an observation, but when she spoke on behalf of her constituency she became more rigid.

HONESTY is lost as political figures search for the correct terminology in order to… be polite to those…. individuals who might be offended….. Zzzzzzz…. I will more than likely show myself to be the un-educated rube I am at some point in the next three years. A High School Graduate would be a stark contrast on a debate stage with a polished political veteran. But, as someone who would describe himself as a bit of a wonk who doesn’t mind a tip-toe through the weeds, I would hold up my end of the conversation.

After all, like everyone else, I have a stake in this. Am I someone I could allow to be President?…. I would say, with a little polish, I could see it. I guess I should remain humble, and LOUD. Hmmm…

So I will make sure to post something each day. I hope that you feel the urge to comment, as input is always welcome.

Keep you head UP!!

I think it turned out VERY well. I hope you agree.

Busy morning! Kids made it to school, three stores to hit today. Grocery getter extraordinaire! And its raining, so traffic sucks. Mondays are fun.

I’m going to attempt a daily post here and, hopefully soon, start a livestream each day on Twitch.tv/mrcharbonneau. I need to assess my livestreaming tools to see what I can or cannot do. I don’t have much cash available for cameras and mics, so I’ll see how this laptop camera looks. BUT, that will be another day.

Be sure to check out my GoFundMe and Patreon. I’ll keep going if there’s an appetite for an independent, funded by THE PEOPLE, to change the ELECTION SYSTEM. That’s the question, how to pay for this. I’m a stay-at-home-father of two with a wife who is a PICU nurse. (Pediatric Intensive Care Unit… actually CRRT nurse. She specializes in hearts and circulatory… but anyway) I am pretty much doing this on my own as a SECOND JOB.

A second job that I don’t want right now. Don’t have the funding for. Will, in essence, be DOING FOR FREE. Will have a 1:1,000,000 chance of success. And will be the most EMOTIONALLY AND PHYSICALLY trying thing I’ve ever done. In 2016 I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. I’ve been learning how to diabetes for a couple years now, and for the last 365 days I’ve been successful at not dying! Last year in March I caught an atypical pneumonia, my blood sugar was over 500 and was in the hospital for three days.

It was the best thing that could have happened to me. Seriously. It got me to focus for three days on what I needed to do. Scary, yes. The family was scared, too. Pneumonia sounds horrible! No fun at all.

But, just another reason to change this country for the better. Having a terminal illness sharpens the mind, forces one to ensure priorities are in order. I’m only 39, but I know how I will likely die- “complications due to T1 diabetes”.

…that or “random bus”. Details. whatever.

Keep your head UP!!
