Sure, the Republicans are in a bind right now, but let's face it, if you want some tiny bit of fame before you die, you've got to become a Republican! They have a new Presidential front runner every 2 or 3 weeks. With the sudden demise of Ted Cruz, as well as Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal before him, not to mention Paul Ryan, Jeb Bush, Rick Perry, Joe the Plumber, The Donald, some bartender, and more.
Someone new will be taking Cruz's place soon and it could be someone like you! Remember how the once unknown Sarah Palin burst on the scene? What about Herman "999" Cain? Why not you? If you get started now you could be the one who takes someone else's place sometime in April, 2015. Once on top it will be all up to you. Say the right things (begin with tax cuts) and you could still be on top right into May!
This is the kind of thing that can really spice up your obituary. Instead of "...was a manager in a shoestring factory for 32 years" it would read, "...was the front running candidate for President in the 2016 Republican primaries." Make your family proud, right? Your death might even be reported nationally by AP! So, go for it America, at worst you could end up as a high paid lobbiest for the beef jerky trade association with a staff, a car and driver and an expense account. Beats working.
