Kepler for President

(3 Minute Read)
Kepler

I’m Running for President!

Woof! Woof! This is Kepler again, Master’s Jack Russell terrier. I’m writing another article for Master’s blog.

Huge Announcement

After meeting many people in campgrounds all over the country, I have learned something. Folks really like me. Folks like the way I think and like to hear what I have to say. Folks like my candid expressions of opinions. Folks like my politics. Folks like the way I stand for truth with no compromise. Folks say they like my take on issues and find it both refreshing and challenging.

Therefore, during this season of celebrating our country’s Independence Day, I am hereby announcing my candidacy for President of the United States of America!

Qualification

Some people may object that I have no experience or preparation for such a job. But I take encouragement from this quote by author Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) as recorded in Oxford Essential Quotations:
“Politics is perhaps the only profession for which no preparation is thought necessary.”
Besides, I will have Master to help me.

Do I meet the Constitution’s presidential qualifications? I sure do! The Constitution (Article II, Section 1, Paragraph 5) requires the president to be a natural born citizen. I qualify because I was born in Michigan 5 years ago. And I do have a birth certificate!

The Constitution also requires the president to be at least 35 years of age. When we convert my age from dog years (dy) to human years (hy), we see I’m old enough to be president (1 dog year = 7 human years):
5 dy X 7 hy/dy = 35 years old in human years.
All 35 years of my human-year age have been spent in the USA, so I meet the constitutional requirement that a president must have been a US resident for at least 14 years.

Kepler for President
This is my campaign poster.
Nourish the Flame of Truth.

Campaign Theme

It is difficult to improve on President Trump’s campaign theme,
Make America Great Again.
It’s a theme that I wholeheartedly support.

However, after diligent study, I have settled on a different theme for my campaign. Here is my campaign theme:

Alere Flammam Veritatis

This Latin phrase is variously translated as
Nourish the Flame of Truth
or
Let the Flame of Truth Shine.
I am happy with either translation. But I am going to use the original Latin version. It sounds more impressive. It also sounds kind of like barking if you say the Latin phrase very firmly twice in a row!

Why do I especially like this motto? Truth in the mainstream media and in politics and in many other fields is so rare these days that it makes me howl in exasperation. Therefore I want to restore truth as an esteemed value in America. I want to make America full of truth again.

Master helped me come up with this campaign theme. He said using a Latin motto would add gravitas to my campaign. Gravitas is not a word I’ve heard very much, but I’m pretty sure it has something to do with gravy. And I love gravy! So I want to add gravitas to my campaign and to everything else!

Campaign Venues

You’re probably itching to know where you can meet me. Where will I be holding campaign rallies?

Here’s a hint: “Campaign trip” is an anagram of what?
Answer: It’s an anagram of “a camping trip.”

Master and Missus go camping a lot, and my buddy Henry and I love it. I wonder how people and dogs ever got started living in houses! I love our little-house-big-yard camping setup.

Campgrounds nationwide will be where I do most of my campaigning for President. Master said we want a true “grassroots” approach, so that sounds like a campground to me. I look for a “groundswell” of support, so I’m sure outdoors is the best place for that!

I love the outdoors — exploring the fantastic woods and fields and waters that are the craftsmanship of the Great Creator.
For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them. (Exodus 20:11)

Campaign Rally Venue – Kepler for President 2020
Here I am with my campaign advisor scouting a campground pavilion for a rally.

If I am elected, my summer White House will be Master’s white camper where I will sign and veto congressional bills.

I will kick off my campaign next week with a blog post where I talk to my people. I want to honestly share some thoughts reflecting my thinking on a smorgasbord of issues to encourage my people to support my run for president. Stay tuned next week for Kepler for President: Grins & Growls #1 to read about my campaign positions.

So that’s how things look from the Dog House!

Please vote Kepler for President in 2020.
Alere Flammam Veritatis

Till next time, this is Kepler signing off. Woof! Woof!

But now ask the beasts, and let them teach you;
And the birds of the heavens, and let them tell you.
Or speak to the earth, and let it teach you;
And let the fish of the sea declare to you.
Who among all these does not know
That the hand of the LORD has done this,
In whose hand is the life of every living thing,
And the breath of all mankind?
(Job 12:7-10)

  1. I think Kepler would be a better president than any of the Democrats who are running. He would also be better than a lot of the Republicans.

    • Thanks, Mama Patti. I got my start on thinking and my love of truth with you. I remember you used to call me your “Thinker” even before I was weaned. Thanks for giving me a strong start on life before I moved to live with Master and Missus. And thanks for your clever and humorous comment. Woof! Woof! -Kepler
