If you are one of many who believe the country needs more choices for President than two parties, be careful what you wish for. Another voice from Hollywood is about to run for office.
And this one posted a campaign speech to become President of the United States/Prime Minister of Israel at the same time back in 2010.
The Palm Beach Post reports that actress/comedian Roseanne Barr has filed the necessary paperwork with the Federal Election Commission to seek the Green Party’s presidential nomination. The party’s nominee will be chosen at a convention from July 12-15 in Baltimore.
Barr won an Emmy for her sitcom, Roseanne, and had a show for one season on Lifetime about her macadamia farm in Hawaii titled, "Roseanne's Nuts,” according to TheWrap. Barr said, "I am no wing. I am an American. I believe in people-ism.” Deep.
According to the Los Angeles Times, she said, "Both the Democratic and Republican parties are bought and paid for by corporate America and cater to the needs of the highest bidder. I cannot be bought."
RoseanneWorld posted her speech, which says the comedian’s platform is composed of three parts:
1.) Make war illegal and hemp legal.
2.) Allow a minimum of Green Party leaders to be female and one-sixth of its officials to be poor.
3.) Most importantly, outlaw b.s.
A recent Green Party Watch poll between the party’s four candidates shows Jill Stein receiving 1,223 of 1,792 votes, Barr with 526, Kent Mesplay receiving 35 votes, and Harley Mikkelson getting 8.
An informal TMZ opinion poll has Roseanne trailing President Barack Obama by only three percent, 39 percent to 36 percent, with Mitt Romney coming in at 25 percent.
