Joint Statement from W. David Kubiak and his dicey doppelgänger Wladislav K
on their campaign to free Earth from Big Bodies and occupy the presidency
Although we truly believe we can pull a victory off, let us be the first to assure you that we're not a perfect candidate. We've lived in Asia most of our life and enjoyed a rather reckless history. From running Kyoto honkytonks and getting jailed for firebombing local yakuza gangs to kindling massive protests against the city's corporate doom, publicizing salariman emasculation and then getting elected "virtual mayor," our Japanese episodes alone might give a normal voter pause. Even our less noisy work with outcaste tribals in India and stints with geurrilla media, cold fusion and 9/11 truth in the US are not normal resume entries.
Fortunately, however, you are probably not a normal voter either or may no longer vote at all. In fact you may think our elections are now such a tragic farce that an outburst of insurrectional weirdness really could not hurt at all.
To be perfectly frank, we are only doing this because nobody else is, but yes, for better or worse, we're touched enough to believe we really can win. Win in the sense of winning 10% of you over to SAP's potent memes—"Attention Rules!", "Big Bodies Suck!" & "Conspiracy can Heal the World!"—and simply alerting 30% more of you that they exist.
That alone will plant them deeply enough in the zeitgeist to blossom and spread on their own. And that of course also means we will win in the sense of dooming monstrous corporate scale, reviving eco-erotic politics and igniting the first faint sparkles of the spirit of the Earth. Thus begins the healing of our countries, cultures and consciousness. What more could winning mean?
Our main platform goals are outlined in SAP's ABC meme roster and the Contract on Corporate America, but we and/or our shadow cabinet will also be posting numerous Big position papers issues as the campaign rolls along.
To offer a quick personal preview, however, we have rather odd ideas about taxes, education and the exploration of (inner) space. We also believe in compulsary national service for every American kid after high school including one year of Third World work & travel and one year at home learning guerrilla skills and sniper arts.
It seems to us that before moving blindly on to "higher education", all young people should have some experience of the planet we inhabit and the tools to protect their freedoms and rights. We can also reclaim our national security from military-industrial complexification by arming our youth with firsthand knowledge of the world and democratizing self-defense.
After all, what people can really be sovereign if Big covert powers are controlling all their recon and twisting their views of the world as well as incessantly robbing them blind to build absurdly monstrous arsenals? The Swiss had it right - educate your kids with sniper scopes and honest news and you can remain uninvaded inexpensively and for a very long time. (Plus they get a pretty cool knife.)

SAP Tactical Poll
Write-in campaigns are not for the faint of heart, but neither are they impossible as the references below indicate.They did after all bring us Strom Thurmond and Lisa Murkowski so it's a mixed blessing at best.
Only six states have officially disallowed them thus far- Hawaii, Nevada, South Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Louisiana - but they are relatively unpopulated states with only 37 electoral votes between them.
So, yes, Virginia, there is a path to the White House for a very dark horse. And though we are only focused on the Magic 10%, who are all we really need to power a countercoup, it is amusing to think what might happen if a bunch of the 80% of us who claim to detest megacorps sharpened up their pencils and got on board.
NEMESIS: the Greek deity of indignation against, and retribution for, evil deeds and undeserved good fortune. She personifies resentment toward those who commit and profit from heinous crimes with apparent impunity. She is often depicted as a winged goddess holding a measuring scale, bridle, sword or scourge; and her name means 'dispenser of dues.'
"Nemesis is a kind of fatal divinity who restores proper proportion or equilibrium to the world wherever it has been disturbed. She humbles those enjoying excessive or unfairly acquired fortunes with punishing losses to revive their compassion and humanity." In sum, she's a real SAP heroine and fitting deity for our times...
