    Default Tommy Chong for President

    Tommy Chong for President: 7 Policy Proposals



    Bernie Sanders has been dismissed for having "pie-in-the-sky" ideas, like free public education, Medicare for all and a $15-an-hour federal minimum wage. Let his critics scowl; Sanders' supporters like that their candidate thinks big.

    Take it from Tommy Chong, who recently endorsed Sanders. Chong spoke with Rolling Stone about why he's feeling the Bern, and laid out the seven-point platform he'd run on if he were in the race. As president of the United States, "my focus would be on fixing the planet," Chong says. "That's what I would focus attention on: on the planet itself, the whole planet."

    Here are the finer details of his plan — his far-out, almost certainly drug-induced plan.

    1. Solve Syria's drought

    "I would focus on encouraging Israel to share their sea-line — the water treatment plant. I would encourage the Israelis to share that with their neighbors, Syria. You know, so that Syria could get rid of the drought."

    2. While he's at it: Solve every other drought

    "What I would do if I were president, I would create a pipeline — but not for oil, but for water. So when you have floods in one area, you could service, say, a giant cistern in different drought stricken-areas, because that's really what's important: that we save the planet."

    3. Turn the Middle East into a "paradise"

    "I would encourage big agricultural companies to go into the Middle East to create employment and industry in the desert... because all you need is water, and then you got paradise."

    4. Scrub the world's waterways

    "And then I would make sure there was a massive clean-up for all the plastic in all the waterways, like the Flint River, and all these waterways that need to be cleaned."

    5. Address "all that stuff that needs to be updated and fixed"

    "All the infrastructure that needs to be updated and modernized: Now is the time. We have solar power. We should be able to do that with waste disposal and all that the infrastructure stuff that's needed: bridges and roads, and all that stuff, and the parks. All that stuff that needs to be updated and fixed."

    6. Merge North and South America

    "And I would encourage the North America and South America to merge so you wouldn't have an immigration problem. You'd have freedom of travel — no borders. No borders. Just, you know, obey the traffic laws and sanitation laws and everybody's welcome!"

    7. Outlaw religious violence

    "And on the whole continent, I'd make sure that religion doesn't in any way create any kind of violent thing. Like, if your religion or your beliefs promote violence against another person, then that's automatically outlawed. That's a no-no."

    Very cool, man.

    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    Basically, take every Republican candidate's plan and do the exact opposite.

    Always wondered what smoking pot for your entire adult life would do to the human brain.

    Now I know.

    From Newsmax:

    If former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg decides to run as an independent he could win New York, taking votes from both the Republican and Democratic nominees, Former New Hampshire Gov. John H. Sununu said.

    "If he wins 31 electoral votes, maybe nobody gets 270," Sununu aid. "And maybe it goes to the House of Representatives, one vote per state. You may end up with President [Paul] Ryan."

    I didn't think about New York's 31 electoral college votes if he ran.

    I wonder if they would truly be up for grabs, is he that popular in New York? You always just assume those belong to the Democratic nominee. Interesting. If, and it's a huge if, Hillary get indicted, this could be an election for the ages. Bloomberg coming in, Biden swooping in at the end to try and get the nomination.

    The possibility of Trump winning the delegates and still not be chosen as the Republican candidate at the convention and then he makes his own third party run.

    It will never happen, but if all the headwinds go a certain way, you could have the following ballot come November.

    Biden - D
    Rubio - R
    Trump - I
    Johnson - L
    Bloomberg - I

    Now that would make for some entertaining debates.
