Actors in Hollywood will do anything these days to draw attention to themselves, even going so far as to make a mockery of the US Presidential nomination process by running for President. That was the case on Thursday when actress/talk show host Roseanne filed the necessary papers to run for the US Presidential office.
Roseanne is seeking the Green Party’s nomination for President and she says she’ll focus her efforts on legalizing marijuana.
Barr says her run for office isn’t a joke and that she wants to capitalize on the Occupy Wall Street movement to draw in support from millions of voters who she believes have been undervalued by the US Government.
In a statement regarding her decision to see the office of the President she noted:
“The Democrats and Republicans have proven that they are servants—bought and paid for by the 1%—who are not doing what’s in the best interest of the American people,”
Roseanne Barr is the third candidate to seek the Green Party’s nomination. She’s be going up against Dr. Kent Mesplay, an air quality inspector in San Diego County, Dr. Jill Stein who is a mother, housewife, physician and longtime teacher of internal medicine and Harley Mikkelson who is now retired and spent 26 years with the Michigan Departments of Community Health, Education, and Human Services.
Speaking on Green Party Watch Roseanne Barr noted:
“Both the Democratic and Republican parties are bought and paid for by corporate America and cater to the needs of the highest bidder as opposed to the people they claim to represent. I cannot be bought. I have been a tireless advocate of Occupy Wall Street since Day 1 when I delivered my campaign speech in Liberty Plaza on September 17th, 2011.”
I’ll stand behind her legalization of marijuana movement but I would be afraid to see her talking to world leaders about issues of national security.
I just wonder if she’ll be this type of President:
Would you be willing to vote for Roseanne if the choice came down to her, Mitt Romney and Barack Obama?
