"The uniqueness of the politicians name..." James "Kimo" Rosen

Mufi  is a very unique first name.
How many other States have a Mufi
on the ballot?

Hawai'i has some of the most unique
first names in political candidates. How many have ever heard the name of Mazie before?

Tulsi, Mazie and Mufi, Hawaii politics may
have winning first names, however is that enough
to win an election?

Hawaii' is unique in many ways. From it's record breaking use of Spam to it's unique culture and diversity of people.
One  way Hawaii is unique is in the name's of people running for political office. How many other places in America have people running  for US congress with the first names of Mufi, or Tulsi?

How many have citizens running for Senate with the name of  Mazie? We also have a hopeful candidate for Prosecutor named Justin, whether he is Justin Time or Justin Sane is yet to be seen.

If Only Our politicians acted as unique as their names  by donating all campaign contributions to fixing the economy. If every politician in every political race in 2012 did this  there would be an influx of billions of dollars for a patriotic cause.  Instead of putting money into photo shoots and political signage use it for America. Give each politician equal time for debates on public television and decide your candidate from that.
In the interim,  we may have unique names but we still have every Tom, Dick and Harry doing what they do best, hand-waiving at cars, telling lies and  begging for donations to serve their narcissistic energies.
Remember to vote for your favorite money begging  self serving Narcissist.

Google Mufi, Tulsi or Mazie, that's all it takes  to  see them hand-waiving at cars, telling lies and  begging for donations to serve their narcissistic energies.

Best they could do is return the money to the donor and suggest ways it could be put to better economic use. Just my two cents (too small an amount to help the economy, no matter where they get spent!)

via facebook;"Lobbyist pay to keep their guys in office, the best way to fix this would be a level playing field in other words each candidate would get 1 million , no more, this way they don't buy their way into any office, Clint Eastwood got on the Cit...y Council in Carmel so he could help pass laws that would help him, its done all the time at all levels, there are such great perks, its too tempting to pass up. this is why we see the revolving door of candidates who were Representatives, Mayors, etc. that equates to several pensions, for 1 person.Wise up America they don't think anyone will be smart enough to fiquire it out or band together to change things, because business as usual isn't working so far, is it???."

Or how about having debates on public TV, no more commercials with b rate actors just saying what their paid to say about a candidate.If all the monies collected for each political campaign across the country this year were used for a patriotic cause verses for the vanity of the candidates our nation would prosper.
