What’s the Point of a One-President System Anyway?

syn·er·gy
/ˈsinərjē/
noun
the interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations, substances, or other agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects.

Here’s a question for you:

Why is there a President?

The concept of presidents evolved from royal hierarchies. The King to lead all, and the rest to be his servants.

Quite an egotistical notion. That one person is makes the final call. So to prevent tyranny, Democracy was established.

But those in power are driven by ego. The desire to be top brass. The pull towards fame, fortune, and legacy.

I am not saying that I am immune to the disadvantages of ego. But what I want vastly more than the presidency, is a happy and harmonious world.

So why is there a President?

Can you imagine a better leadership mechanism that the one in place?

And what is a President anyway? Mostly a figurehead dressed up for the media, which is owned by the wealthiest, most exploitative people and corporations in the world. You already know that, and if you don’t, well, I challenge you to provide evidence to the contrary.

We must not permit this tomfoolery to endure.

Look. Tradition is just peer pressure from dead people. It is great to preserve traditions if they continually reinforce the essence of who we are and what we stand for.

But look around you. Is our two-party system anything more at this point, than a decapitated fish flopping around reflexively on a fisher’s table?

We can do better than this. We must do better.

We do not need a one-President system anymore.

If I become President, everyone becomes President. That is why the campaign is called Hicks/YOU 2020.

The competition for the presidency sickens me. Let’s replace this system. Instead of one figurehead at the top, let’s have teams of leaders. Groups of three.

Hypothetically, imagine Sanders, Trump, and Williamson on the same team.

Then another team of Presidents. Yang, Pence, and Kasey Wells.

All thoroughly trained to work together in synergy rather than in competition, with the best interests of the American people and all humanity in heart and mind.

Heck, if you all would let me set up a system like that, I don’t need to be one of the Presidents. I’ll be happy to a secluded cabin in the mountains so I can crank out a fantasy novel series and make pretty music for the next generation.

The system ain’t right.

You know it.

I know it.

We all know it.

We’re all tired of the fighting and complaining.

Let’s heal, baby.

Also. The teams of Presidents should be called tri-forces, in tribute to the legendary Japanese company Nintendo. Trump’s tri-force can be tri-force of wisdom. Because if there’s one thing I love, it’s irony. And Donald Trump.

His wife is kinda okay lookin’ too.

(But then again, so are you. The one reading this. Some may even say that you’re hot.)
