Hello all, my name is Kent McCarty, I'm a freshman at the University of Southern Mississippi, and I'm running for President of the United States in 2048.
I've been interested in politics since I was a fetus. I was that kid in kindergarten who memorized the Presidents in order and spouted them in front of the class for show and tell. Needless to say, I had A LOT of friends as a child. In 4th grade I mounted an unsuccessful campaign for student body president and swore I'd never run for anything again. Those 5th graders put up a mean fight. By the time the 2008 election rolled around, I had started the Young Republicans Club at my high school and bet the farm with the Young Democrats that McCain would pull out an upset. I stayed home the day after election day.
Now I write The Dysfunction Junction, a right-leaning political blog and spend most of my time sucking up to local politicians and my district's US representative. Gotta start somewhere.
Thanks to the people behind Defending the Truth for giving me somewhere to talk politics with people who care. Remember, I'm young AND from Mississippi, so you're probably smarter than me.

This has a familiar ring, I think. Heck, you can be eligible to be president in 2040. Welcome.
