I got an email forward from one of my friends the other day that contained the question above. At first I laughed and then started to delete the email but then I started thinking about it and realized that it really had some merit.
NASCAR racing is one of the most popular sports in America. If you’ve ever been to a NASCAR race, you not only hear the roar of the engines but you feel the roar of the engines as well. The seats literally vibrate from the sounds emanating from the track below. To be honest, I think the air you breathe is vibrating from the noise of all of the cars on the track.
Aw, the cars. Sometimes it’s hard to see the actual color of the car through all of the corporate decals that cover as much of the surface as possible. But they’re nothing compared to the safety suits worn by the drivers. Years ago there were a few patches on their jumpsuits, but today’s NASCAR drivers are covered from head to toe with the emblems of all their corporate sponsors.
Without all of the corporate sponsors, who donate their products and/or money to the drivers, many of the car owners could not afford to put their cars on the tracks. Sponsors play a very important role in NASCAR and they like to have their names plastered all over the drivers and their cars and in as many places as possible.
Many politicians also need sponsors in order to enter their race for office. Unlike NASCAR, most of their sponsors want to keep their sponsorship hidden as much as possible, and the politicians feel the same way. Candidates don’t want the general public to know from where they are getting their campaign money.
So what if all politicians, especially those in the US House, Senate and White House, were required to wear a uniform with patches from all of their corporate sponsors just like the NASCAR drivers? Banks, unions, airlines, manufacturers and more, all with their names and logos displayed on each politician for the country to see.
I can see images of Barack Obama’s uniform with patches from all of the different labor unions nearly covering his entire uniform. Crammed in between them would be the patches of the Pride-LGBT and other homosexual groups, various socialist, communist and Muslim organizations and let’s not forget Planned Parenthood.
I wonder how many people would still vote for Obama or any other politician if they saw who was sponsoring their campaigns? So I ask, how do we get a law passed through Congress that would require them to wear uniforms with patches identifying all of the corporate sponsors?
