With the 2012 Presidential Election looming on the horizon a hard look at the candidates has left me with a sense of dread. In this day and age how can We the People only have two choices for such an important position? Money is one answer, you need millions to be a viable candidate.  A far cry from what I was told in elementary school, that any US born citizen over 35 could run.  Is there a way to level the playing field? How can the average citizen get their message out in an environment that is seemingly quite controlled?

It is in this spirit that I have created this social networking site.

In an effort and hopes to produce honest dialog about real issues and in the process create a “Flash Candidate”, someone the people have built a consensus behind, someone We the People can get on the ballot.

In this modern age of technology we have figured out ways to create instant colaborations. Flash mobs, can we extend this new phenomenon to a presidential candidate? The challenges are nearly insumountable. Without your help in spreading the word, and getting friends involved, we will be faced with the same seemingly lackluster choices come November. 

Here at this site we are trying to produce a viable option to a “lesser of two evils” voting choice, evil is evil after all, vote “Flash Candidate” in 2012.

Or is there still a chance for something like this to work? I thought back in April, when I created this site, it would take off in a flash. Everyone I talk to doesn't seem to believe in Romney or Obama. I…
