Kat Swift decries ‘Ageism’ in the Constitution

Friday was Kat Swift’s birthday. She turned 35, making her officially eligible for president under the Constitution.

“The process by which one becomes President is a fraud,” says a media release posted on the Swift campaign’s blog. “Lies and obfuscation resulting in the theft of democracy happen routinely, as recently as 2006, 2004, and 2000, and all the way back. Remember 1876?”

That year’s presidential election saw Republican Rutherford B. Hayes defeat Democrat Samuel Tilden by one electoral vote, despite losing the popular vote 51% to 48%.

“The fight at the 1968 Democratic convention in Chicago for the people to have a voice in electing the President goes on,” the release continues, its words not directly attributed to Ms. Swift. “We the people are not all equal in the eyes of this government. In the two-party structure, the parties don’t care what those at the bottom need, while nurturing the owner class.”

“On this day,” the release continues, referring to June 6, “that the Allies landed on the beaches of Normandy, and the precursor to the National Basketball Association was formed, and a future President was born.”

“For it is my birthday,” says Swift, this time the words directly attributed to her. “I want every person who doesn’t benefit from the system in place to do something that makes one happy, followed by an action that will take away one piece of support given to those with power over their lives. Something as simple as not using gas one day, or diverting that $20 donation from a media-preferred candidate to food for four homeless people in your ‘hood.”

“Think differently,” Swift continues. “Act in your own best interest, not in the interest of those who control the flow of information, keeping us subservient and and ignorant.”

Kat Swift is seeking the Green Party’s nomination for president. She is continuing her campaign despite reports that Cynthia McKinney has already earned enough pledged delegates to guarantee her nomination on the first ballot.

    I do not deny it. And it is largely composed of those granted privileges by the oppressive and coercive government!

    “…while nurturing the owner class.”

    Owner class? That’s socialist rhetoric…

    Three ways she’s not:

    1. Not as angry.

    2. Not crazy… At least not in the same way.

    3. Will not quit the party in a huff with McKinney wins nomination.

    Why do I get the feeling that Kat Swift is the Green party’s answer to Christine Smith?
