MOORE/BLOCK in ’08
U.S. Presidential Candidate Frank Moore has asked me to be his running mate in his write-in campaign for 2008. Frank has been my friend and collaborator since 1996 when I first discovered his amazing, inspiring Web of All Possibilities. Since 2000, he’s produced The Dr. Susan Block Show on BTV as well as his own show, and together we fought a political battle for Freedom of Speech and won against the censors. I’ve admired Frank tremendously all these years for his brilliant mind, big heart, wild spirit, poetic sensibilities, unflagging drive and sexy twinkling eyes, so I was happy to accept.
Plus he emailed me this offer I couldn’t refuse: “hey, would you be my mate?…my running mate, that is! seems like they require us write-ins to have our vices early! i need someone who shares my philosophy, has wit and wisdom, a quick mind, can talk deep and go to the heart of issues…and is a sexy babe who is good with people. I NEED YOU!” Did I mention that Frank Moore is a natural politician? He really knows how to ask a gal to serve her country.
And the fact is that I’ve been feeling a little alienated from my country lately, what with the Bush Crime Family running it into the ground, and the major presidential candidates of both parties not offering substantial, inspirational change.
So, there’s the Republican Party, the Democratic Party and the Great American Slumber Party (GASP!) , the biggest party of ’em all, filled with millions of disaffected citizens virtually sleeping through the whole political process, feeling so helpless that we’d just rather close our eyes and dream… Frank’s offer was just the “ticket” to wake me up and get me excited about American politics again.
Besides, I’m all about vice.
And like most Americans, I’m sick of the Perma Wars. America is at war with everything. There’s the War on Terror, in the name of which we’re fighting the War on Iraq, the War on Afghanistan, maybe a War on Pakistan or perhaps a War on Iran. Then there’s the War on Drugs, another Perma War we’re losing, though we’re putting millions of nonviolent people behind bars when what they really need is treatment or perhaps just to be left alone. Then around the holidays, we hear about the War on Christmas, which seems to excuse making a War on Heathens (a.k.a. Humanists). And let us not forget the War on Sex, the War on You and Me and our rights to sexual choice, privacy and an honest sex education. This last war is perpetrated by the anti-sex “warriors,” always hypocrites par excellence, politicians and religious leaders who are secretly screwing hookers and call-boys, even as they screw the rest of us out of our sexual freedom in the name of their Hate Wars.
Why can’t we stop all of these wars? Why can’t we make peace? One reason is that the Business of War is very profitable, and the people running our government are, for the most part, in the War Business. They are war profiteers.
Frank Moore is not in the War Business. He, like me, is in the Love Business. The only way we can stop the Perma Wars is for some of us in the Love Business to take the reins of power – nicely, with a bonobo kiss – from those in the War Business that are devastating this great nation.
The current goons in the White House have left us with a huge mess overflowing with debt, war, cronyism and corruption. There is no doubt that whoever “wins” the U.S. Presidency in ’08 will have mammoth challenges ahead. Frank Moore is a man accustomed to surmounting mammoth challenges; he has been doing this since he was born with severe cerebral palsy, when doctors said he had “no IQ” and urged his family to institutionalize him. But his parents refused to give up, and the baby the “experts” had assumed was a “vegetable” evolved into the artist-genius-activist-shaman that we now know as Frank Moore, the Stephen Hawking of Performance Art, the ultimate wounded healer.
And if there’s anything this war-torn, debt-ridden, demoralized country needs right now, it’s healing. And if FDR could run the country from a wheelchair, Frank can do it with his pointer.
So I am delighted to have this opportunity to inject the American political discussion with a fresh shot of peace, pleasure and common sense. On that level, we can’t lose! We will win by inspiring new generations. We will win by inseminating the political discussion with our outrageous but very sensible ideas.
And I know just how I’m going to refurbish Number One Observatory Circle. It will be Dr. Suzy’s Speakeasy on the Potomac with lots of burgundy velvet curtains, a luxurious Vulva Lounge and a Monkey Rocker in the waiting room for visiting dignitaries to relax on while waiting to see me.
But enough dreaming… Let’s get down to brass tacks. Here are some of Frank’s planks:
“I will bring the troops home from Iraq immediately. Moreover, I will change this country’s self-image from that of THE SUPER POWER/WORLD LEADER to that of a member of the global community….I’ll cut the military budget by at least half….I will destroy 10 percent of our nuclear weapons each year to reverse the nuclear arms race. We will stop giving/selling arms to other countries. All private arms sales should be illegal.”
Welfare and Taxes
“I’ll do away with welfare and social security. Instead, every American will receive a minimum income of $1,000 a month. This amount will be tied to the cost of living and will not be taxable….I’ll do away with all tax deductions for over $12,000 income. Instead, there will be a flat tax of 10% on annual income of less than one million dollars for an individual and less than five million dollars for a corporation. But the flat tax will jump to 75% on annual income exceeding these limits.”
“We will have universal prenatal-to-the-grave health care and universal free education with equal access.”
Marriage and Family
“Government should leave marriage to churches. Instead, any two or more adults who have been living together for at least 2 years should be able to register as a “family.”

And check out the digital painting that Frank did of me having a female ejaculation orgasm during my famous SQUIRT SALON: Click here to see it large, as well as the original photo (be forewarned, faint-of-heart; it’s explicit):
How can a guy who can’t control the movements of his arms and legs manage to create art like this? The answer is complex, deep and awe-inspiring, but the bottom line is: if he can do this, maybe he can do what needs to be done for America.
Peace through pleasure
