My fellow Americans,
I, Margaret Mildred Kittredge, humbly ask my fellow citizens to consider me as a candidate for President of the Unites States of America.
Many of you know me for my book, The Waste Not, Want Not, Almanac. These principles form the bedrock of my vision for the United States. I believe that if we can create a national movement around frugality and self-sufficiency, we can use the money we save to improve the lives and education of Americans, as well as our friends around the world.
My campaign slogan “A chicken in every coop” perfectly explains my platform. We will educate Americans on ways to grow vegetables in any climate, raise chickens, and feed our families nutritious basics. Aunt Millie will be heading up these initiatives. My Aunt Millie is known for never wasting a thing, not even sunshine! She has proposed that the government offer tax incentives to those who install their own clothesline. We will return home economics classes to schools . . . and Shakespeare!
Growing up in the Depression, I experienced the embarrassment and shame of having clothes that didn’t fit and not enough food to eat. Inspired by the famous Roosevelt Fireside Chats, Aunt Millie and I will be broadcasting monthly ideas on how to best use what we have. We may even teach our fellow citizens to make their own bloomers!
If my platform resonates with you, I encourage you to visit my website to join the movement. Remember, a vote for Kit is a vote for a chicken in every coop!
