(Eyes widen. Blank stare. 😶Readjust mindset.) Well ... generally I would NOT be inclined to even respond to a question like this because the implications are seemingly unfoundedly judgmental. However, fully understanding human nature, I am sufficiently informed that some people lack tact or otherwise don't observe tact ... or more so don't even know what tact entails.
Here's my answer, then ...
I don’t have money to buy your vote.
And evidently 😶 it’s necessary to publicly state that I’m NOT raising money to buy your vote.
And evidently 😶 it’s necessary that I also state that I wouldn’t raise money to buy your vote.
If you think I need to buy your vote, I send you Godspeed in an opposite direction from my vision! #gothatway #yeahthatway#anticorruption #moneyoutofpolitics #evidently
I bring plenty enough to the table that makes me an excellent “asset” to serve YOU, THE PEOPLE in public office ... TO NOT HAVE TO BUY YOUR VOTE😶.
And if anyone thinks I need to buy votes because of a conviction in 2006 wrongfully effected... again I say Godspeed ... in the absolute opposite direction of my purpose and vision. Go ... "that way! Yeah, that way!" #wellokayno #really
Buy your vote?! Really?! #byefelicia Don’t make me send you my invoice for services rendered already. You don't want that bill. Smiles. (Offers hug and platonic kiss. Walks away.)
Gente. People. 😶 Please stop engaging nonsense. It's not good for your mental health. I can't make you embrace change, but I can set expectations for mutual respect and ENFORCE them to assert and stand upon my self worth.
I sorely qualify as the bane of our society. I cannot be deemed inept. Some may take offense to this statement ... because it's human nature to be intimidated when one is insecure ... but few people in THE WORLD can assert the versatility and dynamism of my academia, experience, expertise and life.
Most would have to rewind their lives, live the reincarnation at least thrice
before they could "match my grind."
This is not just lip service or exaggerated self justification to overcompensate against the disdain I've experienced as a result of the 2006 conviction. It's the reason for the 2006 conviction. It's truth. Unfortunately, there is a sector of people who still observe dislike for people who have a TRACK RECORD OF SUCCESS OR OVERCOMING OBSTACLES AND LIFE CRISES WELL.
I will not apologize for my successes NOR will I apologize for my happiness.
In the famously invigorating words of Pharrell Williams,
Here come bad news talking this and that, yeah,
Well, give me all you got, and don't hold it back, yeah,
Well, I should probably warn you I'll be just fine, yeah,
No offense to you, don't waste your time
I'm happy. And more directly and relative to why anyone should vote for me, I'm apt ... and my efficacy is unrivaled. Why would I need to buy my way into heaven when I've done enough to merit my happiness, truth, peace and "salvation."
I owe YOU, The People nothing.
Let me repeat for those "in the back" ...
I OWE YOU, THE PEOPLE ABSOLUTELY TUTELY NOTHING.
I am pursuing public service because I have been serving publicly and privately for more than half of my life. Evidently, I like it. As both literally and metaphorically a FREE THINKER since birth (Thanks Mom and Dad) I don't subscribe to the same psychological limitations common to societal standards.
My freedom can be your asset. My objectivity can be your asset.
My academic degrees, expertise and experience can become your assets ...
and you don't have to pay the Student Loan bill that goes with it!
So, now it's well established and clearly and concisely stated that:
- I shall not buy your vote.
- You shall not disrespect me.
- I shall not disappear behind bureaucracy.
- You shall not suffer anymore if [when] you elect me.
- I shall serve you with effective particpatory leadership, objectivity, empathy, and truth.
- You shall not subject my son nor family to public hatred, contempt nor ridicule.
- I shall remain transparent.
- You shall not approach me with sarcastic ass questions and empty allegations anymore. 😶
- I shall listen, love, liaise and lead.
- You shall be free if [when] you elect me.
I think these 10 "commandments" succinctly address
whether I'm seeking to buy my way into heaven.
So, let's focus on the change we all seek. This Tigress needn't pounce when perseverance befits me.
