picking the next president

I've said this before, but I don't like presidential election years.  I get so tired of the ads, the debates, the hate that pretty much splits our country in half.  I know this year isn't a presidential election year, (thank goodness) but I started thinking about the next election.

I've come up with a new system! This will be great.  The candidates will have two weeks to prepare for the big day.  What will happen that big day?  Grocery Shopping!  Yes, I said grocery shopping.  Whoever can get the most groceries (non-food items are included) for the least amount of money is made president.  This proves you have excellent financial understanding and can actually work on a budget - a small budget. What do you think?

I think other qualifications should be considered when choosing a president:
1. The candidate should have served on a PTA board.  You can not understand the incredible amount of work, organization, and financial planning that goes on in a PTA meeting unless you have been there.  It is incredible and it's all for the kids and their education.  This proves your organizational skills and true dedication to education.

2.  The candidate can not own more than four pairs of shoes and at least one of those pairs need to be at least 5 years old. This shows the American people you are resourceful.

3.  The candidate can not have had any previous political experience.  The candidate needs to be a regular American who has spend his/her life working, raising their family without hired help (the appliance repairman doesn't count), and been a good law abiding citizen.  This proves you understand the average working American because you are one of them.

If we get a president who can get $200 worth of groceries for less than $50, I think our economy will turn around.
