Ok then, so this idea was created while I was drinking with Tommy one night. Sean for ASPLU President. That sad thing is, it seems like something I could do and would be a welcome change of occupation away from campus safety. I was actually considering this last year, but I was in London, thus preventing my access to such a thing.
Down with pants.
Now you may go, damnit sean, no one will take that seriously. Therefor you will never pull this off. Ah ha, how you do not realize that sean is far more clever than that. It does the first few things. You notice something like that. The encouraging of the masses to remove clothing has always been a sure success for attention grabbing. It is a fun and amusing concept, "a vote for me is a vote for not wearing any pants" -God bless you charlton. And finally, it is a metaphor people. The idea that we are required to wear pants is a preconceived idea that is just there. If you are wandering around without pants on as a guy people get confused and look at your strangly. Why is that? So I ask for the removing of preconvieced boundries and to look at issues in a new light. In the words of FDR, if it doesn't work, try something else. I am certain the same issues come up every year, it seems that way with our modern government, so why do we look at it in the same way? One must toss out some old ideas if you are to grow.
That of course would make me sound far to liberal on my own, however it would appeal to a vast amount of people on campus. The more conservatives would not have it though. However would I would bring to the table that they do like... I am a lutheran with a decent working knowledge of scripture and I don't obviously stick out as someone who is going to rule the world. My appealling to classical thinking would also grab some faith as would be my sense of a non realitive world.
Now of course, I need to actually learn what issues are talked about, what things others have done and things that have been looked into. However I feel persona and idealology is more important since it can be applied to situation while situation cannot be applied to idealology without making extremely slanted views.
Project: Sean in 2005 is underway kids.
