Just a thought. I wonder if a bank account of some sort were opened, and in that bank account anyone in America could deposit a sum of money---how much money could be raised to pay Barack Obama to leave the White House, move to anywhere on Earth he chose, and to simply fade away, much like the 2008 posters people once hung that are now collecting dust? This man has achieved the exact paradigm shift America needs to utterly avoid at all costs and he has exhibited the consequences of governing outside of American values.

Just follow me for a moment...We constantly here chatter of 300-something million dollars for this, 4.1 billion dollars for that, or even 1.1 trillion dollars for something else. But, it is challenging to comprehend just how large those numbers are. You cannot even begin to conceptualize a mental image of what 1 trillion dollars is. This sum of money requires a lot of football fields and skyscrapers just to give you an idea of how many hundred dollar bills are stacked and spread upon other hundred dollar bills to visually express the reality of one trillion dollars.

That being said, what if, and this is just a fun idea that I'm sure could never possibly happen, but, what if every American who wanted Barack Obama out of the White House was able to deposit one single dollar into a bank account to pay him to pack his bags and move to Hawaii or wherever it is he wants to go? 

It is safe to say that nearly half, if not more, of this nation wants him out of the office. Polls will tell you that it is fity-fifty. I find that hard to believe but who am I to judge liberal or conservative leaning polls? So, let's play it conservatively and assume that...47% of Americans are willing to part with one single dollar to deposit into this bank account.

The population of America is somewhere around 314 million. Forty-seven percent of that is equivalent to $147,580,000.00, tax free. For one single dollar per person, we could offer Barack Obama a stress-free retirement to simply get out of America's way. That would be hard to turn down and, to be honest with you, I'd throw in a twenty and I'm sure many others would, too. 

This whole idea is a hypothetical that would never possibly happen, but the point I am making is this: These presidential and congressional campaigns all serve the mighty dollar and while I am passionate about politics I have no problem admitting that I've never contributed a single campaign dollar. It's because the whole electoral process is such a manufactured, multi-million dollar industry. But, I'll tell you this: The one dollar you and I and so many others would pay to Barack Obama for the simple task of leaving the White House and not dragging this country down with his policies---that one dollar is something I would have no problem parting with and we would not have to go through the mind-numbing process of hearing words come out of his mouth each day.

Just an idea.
