John McAfee Announces 2020 Presidential Bid "To Serve Crypto Community"

Authored by Molly Jan Zuckerman via,

John McAfee, founder of McAfee Antivirus Software and now prominent crypto enthusiast, announced his bid yesterday, June 3, to run for US president in 2020 as a way to serve the crypto community, according to his Twitter account:

This will be McAfee’s second run for president, after he lost his first bid in 2016 to former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson to be the candidate for the Libertarian Party.

McAfee mentioned his past failed bid by noting yesterday that if he “been more connected with the community in 2016,” he would have been better able to publicize the idea of “currency independence,” which he notes is already on “every Anericans' lips (sic).”

McAfee’s tweet about his 2020 run has now garnered over 600 comments, with McAfee responding to most of them with either a “thank you” or a “:).” One token platform has apparently already donated the equivalent of $390.85 to the campaign:

The future potential presidential candidate tweeted again today about the run, noting that although he doesn’t actually think he has a “chance of winning,” the bid will give him a platform to tell the “truth:”

McAfee had already made headlines last week by announcing the creation of his own crypto-backed fiat currency that is redeemable for up to 100 minutes of facetime with him, as well as in February for revealing he made $105,000 per tweet promoting crypto projects.

If he starts peddling refundable Bitcoin child tax credits @ $6,431 for part-time-working moms with welfare-funded rent and for legal / illegal immigrant households with male breadwinners and US-born kids who stay under the income limits for the programs 1) by not working hard and 2) by womb-productive sex, you can bet that Endgame Napoleon will not vote for him.

EN will not do it, even if he balances it out with $3,000 non-refundable Bitcoin child tax credits to fund the 10th, excused, yearly babyvacation for a highly paid & above-firing, flextime-momma manager, married to a highly paid and above-firing man, who can coordinate 10 vacations together per year despite being soooo financially and time-burdened by the demands of parenthood. 

You can bet your bottom Bitcoin that Endgame Napoleon will not vote for him if he extends that non-refundable Bitcoin child tax credit to the part-time-working moms, with spousal income ample enough to support their households in middle or upper-middle-class style, who leave the office jobs in more dangerous areas of town to their welfare-fetching mom-bully counterparts, while monopolizing the low-wage mom-gang jobs in safer, posher areas of town, just so they can add keeping-up-with-the-Jones’ money to the household, while letting $9-per-hour daycare workers, babysitters with NannyCams and elderly grandparents raise their tax-credit-generating children. 

Many of those mommas are [officially] working “full time,” while leaving work every day at 2:30, even when phones are inundated with calls from paying customers. They leave work for weeks of overlooked absenteeism for things like soccer tornanents, while the non-womb-productive, non-welfare-eligible and non-tax-credit-eligible women with no spousal income or child suppprt to cover unaffordable rent that eats up more than half of their earned-only income do their work for them.

These non-womb-productive women often come to work every day, stay the entire day, meet their quotas every month and yet are subject to firing for any triviality at the whim of equally corrupt, equally absentee, crony-parent managers. The paychecks of womb-productive slackers who are often cutthroat bullies on top of it were already higher than mine due to less withholding from Uncle Sam before the doubled tax windfall they got to reward womb-productive sex from this administration. 

It’s gonna be hard for the crypto candidates to beat the pay from government for womb-productive sex that citizens and noncitizens have already gotten from other politicians. And other candidates pay them for sex and reproduction in ways that allow moms to indulge in child-tax-credit-financed mom pampering with less delayed gratification than crypto affords. I am not sure that his candidacy will be competitive in the Tammany Hall II and Fake Feminist Era.

If you donate to his campaign using your cryptos, it will not corrupt him as much. Politicians cannot spend their cryptos as freely. 

If you don’t like him, Lessig, a pro-mass-immigration libertarian, will probably run again to represent the can’t-use-images-unless-you-give-the-artists’-heirs-$100 constituency.

What are the chances that in this economy—with 95 million working-age citizens out of the workforce and 40 million “employed,” womb-productive citizens and noncitizens with incomes so low that they qualify for food stamps—people will stop trying to make a buck off of their barely shopped, non-professional-grade snapshots of trash cans?

As long as he does not pay citizens, legal and illegal immigrants to have sex, reproduce and undercut citizens without 1) spousal income 2) child support money that covers rent or 3) pay for sex and reproduction from government in a rigged, PC-but-discriminatory-as-h**, non-free, mom-dominated labor market, I could care less who he makes who pie with.

I'm filed under "Nonpartisan".  What could be more libertarian than that?  I will not accept donations of any kind or in kind.  Not going to accept any porn star in-kind.  Not going to accept any corporate in-kind.  Not going to accept any political party in-kind.

No way.  This is me alone.  Ten years I've been waiting.  I'm not taking anyone's nickle.
