Sharmin Smith for President 2020

About Sharmin Smith

Life is made up of many moments, the moment you’re born, the moment you die and a million in between.  The moment you lay eyes on the love of your life, marriage, children, there are countless moments of celebration each of us experience in our time here on earth.  There is another moment though, the moment you know why you were put here and what you’re supposed to do with your time in this life. 

They say if your purpose in life doesn’t terrify you, then you haven’t found your real purpose.  I had that moment several years ago and tried to run from it, because it terrified me. I knew it was a crazy, impossible dream and I wasn’t remotely qualified.  God doesn’t call the qualified, he qualifies the called.  I saw this 2016 election laid bare before me in a split second that I couldn’t explain if my life depended on it.  I did my best to share this vision by publishing a book called Taming the Tida, a fictional story about politics, religion and a reality TV show. I had a plan to publish this book using my real name and use it as a platform to launch my own campaign for President, in the final moments before pushing the publish button I chickened out and decided to publish under a pseudonym.  6 months later I watched in horror as Donald Trump announced his candidacy and my dream turned into a nightmare. I want to apologize to everyone I have hurt by not aggressively pursuing my purpose.

A candidate that understands what the average citizen is dealing with every day.  She has worked hard every day to improve her life and the life of her family.

There are significant, long term consequences for not following your dreams and pursuing your purpose in life, not just for you, but for everyone your mission is meant to protect. I can no longer stand by and watch my dream become a nightmare that destroys our country and the world as a whole.  It’s not the things you do in your life that you regret when it’s over, it’s the things you do not do.  That is why I launched a Write-In campaign for President in 2016, though unsuccessful it was very educational.  Our system is designed so that a Write-In candidate could win, they just won't. Thanks to the electoral college, the only way to win is with the DNC nomination or the RNC nomination. I believe Donald Trump will receive the RNC nomination and I am seeking the DNC nomination.   

Who am I and why do I think I am qualified to be the President of our country? 

I’m a military brat, born in a Naval hospital in Newport, RI on November 1, 1975, All Saints Day, during the bicentennial celebration of our nation.  The Navy turned 240 years old October 2016 and I turned 40 in November.  When I was born my home address was located in a project that has been torn down and replaced with a community college. In my 20's I was a homeless single mom. Today I own a historic mansion in central Ohio, I know exactly what it takes to crawl from one location to the other.  I’m a military spouse, I’ve been an enlisted, commissioned and I am now a retired spouse, I understand our military in ways the other candidates do not.  My father died from the long term effects of the Agent Orange he was exposed to during Vietnam and as a dependent I know the pain other dependents feel.  I did not serve too, kids and spouses do not serve in the military, it's a great campaign slogan, but we do not sign our name on the dotted line.  We sacrifice.  We sacrifice for our love of country and answer a call to duty many other people do not understand.  We will not sacrifice in vain.

I worked in financial services for almost 20 years.  I’ve worked in accounts payable and receivable, been a bill collector, a government mortgage underwriter, I’ve written policies and procedures for major financial institutions and managed departments through 9/11 and the financial meltdown of 2008.  I’ve negotiated multi-million dollar mortgage repurchase settlements with major Wall Street banks.  I do not think the big banks can be broken up, but I promise you I know how to slow their roll. I understand finances and I want The Budget. We make more than enough money in this country to pay for everything we need, it’s time to reevaluate our priorities.

I have PTSD, I am an adult survivor of childhood sexual abuse, I receive Social Security Disability.  Our government believes that PTSD can be cured at any time, and those of us who suffer are not lost to society, then I volunteer as tribute to prove it once and for all.  When I tell you that I will protect Social Security, and see to it that the funds stolen from it are returned, you can believe me.  When I tell you that I will fix our healthcare so that every American citizens has it, and it's paid for with our current mandatory payroll deductions you can believe me.  You can also believe that healthcare will include dental, vision, hearing, and long term care facilities.  I refuse to believe we don't make more than enough in this country to pay for everything we need.

I am an advocate for amending the Federal Death Penalty Act to include the death penalty for anyone who sexually abuses a child and revoking the Statute of Limitations on all sex related crimes.  There was a lie told once, that if you had been sexually abused you would grow up to become an abuser.  Many people choose to suffer in silence rather than be accused of the thing they detest the most. If people understood compounding math, and we should with as much credit card debt as we have, that lie never would have survived.  Pedophilia has been around for thousands of years if even half of the victims turned into pedophiles then everyone would be a pedophile by now and that is simply not the case. Pedophilia remains one of the most vile acts in the world and we can stop it in our lifetime.  It’s estimated that there are more than 100 million survivors of childhood sexual abuse in our country, if half of them are willing to vote together for one candidate, we will win this election in a landslide. There is a lie being told now, and pedophiles are trying to weezle their way into the LGBT community and they're trying to go mainstream. Now is the time for a candidate who is willing to punish these predators.

If you’re still wondering what makes me think I’ll get elected?  I grew up in the northern suburbs of Chicago and I have a funny name, of course I’ll get elected. Oprah hit the nail on the head when she said she did not have the DNA.  There is a genetic connection to the presidency, all the presidents are related to King John Plantagenet, but that royal blood line goes back far beyond that. While you may not think you know who King John is, you do, we are all aware of the stories, we just don't understand how they connect.  We are all familiar with the stories of Camelot, King Richard the Lionheart, Arthur and the Knights of the Roud Table, Robin Hood.  Those stories all sound familiar right? The problem with the Hollywood version while always spectacular, often lack complete historical accuracy, or are written vague because the truth was unclear.  The truth is, Richard the Lionheart went off to fight the Crusades and decided to select his young nephew Arthur to be his heir.  Unfortunately for both Richard and Arthur, Richards little brother John thought he sould be king next, not his nephew.  So the jerk prince in all the stories we love, who taxes the people to death and tortures them and punishes them?  That's John, King John. King John killed both Richard and Arthur and all our presidents are split into two groups of descendents, the direct descendents, and the cousins, or Fuedal Barons who have been fighting him and holding his and his descendents feet to the fire for the last 1000 years.  King John is often credited for signing the Magna Carta in 1215, but he did not sign it willingly.  He was forced to sign it by the Fuedal Barons and he was forced to give them back some of the taxes the King had collected. The Barons were responsible for splitting it up and paying back their people. This practice had been in play since the Charter of Liberties which was drafted in 1100.  This is where Trickle Down Economics started. We have literally been fighting this tax war for a 1000 years. 

The evangelicals have been saying Trump is the chosen one, we even had another Apolcolyptical date pass, this time it centered around The Woman of Revelations.  So I logged into and read Revelations again for the first time in a long time.  If you haven't done it recently, or you've never done it, you might want to check it out. The website even has a awesome audio function where it will read the words to you.  I recommend this, as guidence from within this chapter is for it to be heard and not just read. I've been fascinated with the Woman of Revelations for a long time, I scared off some Jehovahs Witnesses while writing my book in 2014 by asking them too many questions about her, I'm not sure what it is about her, but the Jehovahs Witnesses assured me "they" feared her. 

Rereading this book again after so long I learned they did not fear her, they were in awe of her. She defeats two beasts and rides a red beast into Babylon to save it from destruction.  It may just be all the the crazy conspiracy theories of the last few years, but it sure read to me like Trump is the Dragon Beast, Putin is the Bear Beast, Babylon is DC and whoever this chick is, she's gonna slay these beasts while riding another one.  I don't think she's the Mother of Dragons or the Anti-Christ, but I do think of her as Alice here to slay the Jaborwakee. Not only does she need to slay one Jaborwakee, she needs to slay two, while riding another one into a city that's burning.  Honestly, with all the fascinating Bible movies out there, why doesn't this chick have her own movie already? Then Hollywood announced that Wonder Woman 2 was going to be released on my birthday in 2019. 

If there were ever a time for a real life Wonder Woman to step into her birthright and come forward to defeat the Nazi's it's now. These are not normal times. If they were, I'd have years to run for lower offices and to built my brand and my platform. The normal rules no longer apply. The country doesn't trust poised and polished politicians. We're looking for a hero. Someone from the pit, a dark horse that rises out of the shadows and unites the nation. It's an impossible task that no one in their right mind would be want. You'd have to be a little crazy to even consider it. I could run from it, I could hide from it.  I could cry why me? I choose to cry why not me? Why can't I be the voice of reason? I always say, when I'm the voice of reason, we're in trouble.  America, we're in trouble.  Please, give me a chance. I may not have Wonder Womans' body, but I have her hair and I don't have cankles. While I don't think those things should matter, some people do.    

If that still isn't enough for you, I'll leave you with a simple math problem. Trump is our 45th president, 4+5=9.  I will be our 46th president, 4+6=10.  This will be definitive proof, once and for all that a woman over 40 can still be a 10.   


Stop letting establishment politicians tell us they have some special experience to run the country, let's take back our country for our kids. It's time for Americans to stand up and prove to our fellow citizens and the world what it means to be an American.
