A man of the people more concerned with his constituents than himself. ‘Tis a sadly difficult concept to put stock in these days, yet such noble individuals do, indeed, exist. Take, for instance, The Statesman. For years, the masses have been in dire need of this humble-yet-profound individual, but most had resigned themselves to the harsh reality that he may never take a run at the muck-strewn political arena. But just as all hope seemed lost, he tossed his bowler into the ring, eager to show up the gubernatorial flash-in-the-pan flavors of the week what a downhome, pure-of-heart stalwart and pillar of the community could do to return some semblance of a finer and simpler time to his present-day countrymen.

His is a platform built on the common good, justice for all and freedom from tyrannical hypocrisy. This isn’t about him—at least not in his determined mind. He is a man of the people if there ever was one. His motivations are unfettered by pomp and personal gain. All he endeavors to do is improve the quality of life for those who would support him, and share a celebratory toast with those over a fair and prosperous future. It’s what he feels his brothers and sisters deserve, and granted the opportunity via an election of his peers, it’s what he’ll give them. Until then, he’ll campaign, walking the walk with his assets—smooth character, effervescent charm, and a biting pithiness tempered by inherent purity. Who wouldn’t cast a ballot for a candidate with so much to offer?
