Dwayne Johnson for President

"I like to use the hard times in the past to motivate me today."

"No matter who you are, being kind is the easiest thing you can do, and among the most important."
Dwayne Johnson
A Serious Plea for an
Amazing Man to Run as an

Independent Candidate

This American election season, we find ourselves more polarized than at any time in over a century.  A large number of our fellow citizens are justifiably unhappy with the likely nominees from both major parties. 
The campaigns have been disturbingly divisive, bitter, and grim. We cannot afford to elect a President who will pull us further asunder and leave Americans deeply disappointed and full of fear.

We seek to convince Dwayne Johnson to consider coming to our nation's rescue by running for President as an independent. We need a leader who will inspire.  A leader who understands adversity, but embodies determination, power, and accomplishment. We would benefit greatly from a President widely beloved and trusted, who will use his office to unite us through strength and decency, not divide us through bluster and tyranny. Our President must have the background to understand the dashed hopes and aspirations of so many Americans, and the courage to deal effectively with those in the world who would do us incalculable harm.  Read on to see why Dwayne Johnson would be a rock solid, winning choice for our nation.  The one chance we have.

Why Dwayne Johnson for President?

Dwayne can win  He is one of the most popular, charismatic, motivating people in the US, known for his accomplishments as a sports figure, actor, and production company founder. As such, he is one of the only people with a strong chance of winning as an independent candidate, particularly against two such polarizing candidates with the highest negatives. In the event that none of the three candidates wins a majority of electoral votes, the US House of Representatives would make the selection. Dwayne would be the obvious choice of Republicans who do not favor Trump, and Democrats who would surely prefer Dwayne as their best alternative in a House controlled by Republicans.
Dwayne would appeal to independents and across parties  He has appeared at both Democratic and Republican national conventions and actually addressed the Republican convention as part of a get-out-the-vote effort. He has long been a registered Republican, but his views and experiences transcend party lines, as do his friendships with major political figures. He is an independent thinker of great integrity and a natural born leader.He would appeal to working people and the middle class, young people and old, minorities, those who feel the American dream is leaving them behind, and to all those fed up with broken promises and old thinking.
Dwayne stands for expanding opportunities  He was honored  with the Horizon Award, a special recognition from the Joint Leadership of the United States Congress and the Congressional Award Board of Directors. The Horizon Award is presented to individuals from the private sector who have contributed to expanding opportunities for all Americans through their own personal contributions, and who have set exceptional examples for young people through their successes in life. 
Dwayne devotes much of his time and money to charity  He started the Dwayne Johnson Rock Foundation, a platform of hope and possibility for children across the US that offers programs designed to enrich and empower the lives and self-esteem of under-served, at-risk youth, and children hospitalized for medical disabilities, disorders and illnesses. Among other things, it helps troubled youth through teaching them about health and focusing their time on positive activities instead of gangs. 
Dwayne embodies American values   Moving his way up from a rough start,  through relentless hard work, and despite a series of setbacks, he became wealthy and famous beyond his wildest dreams; yet, he remains a generous lover of ordinary people to whom he constantly reaches out,  a compassionate and open-minded public figure, and a humble man of faith, who respects the rights of individuals to their own convictions. He is the US-born son of immigrants: his father was an African-American whose family had moved to Canada, and his mother was Samoan.
Dwayne knows the world and is a beloved international celebrity  Through his upbringing in multiple states in an immigrant family, his experience as a football player, world champion wrestler, and superstar actor, and extensive travels as a major international superstar, he has seen the nation and the world, experienced a variety of cultures, and gained global credibility while maintaining his reputation as a freedom-loving, American patriot.
Dwayne would be the ultimate uniter.  Exactly what we need. Enough said.

Is Dwayne Johnson
Qualified to be President?

  •  Dwayne is more qualified than many presidents and presidential candidates in recent history   At age 43, he has an established reputation for accomplishment, leadership, vision, influence, knowledge of the nation and the world, and for being one of the truly great communicators and motivators. He is a man with expertise in building business success in some of the most competitive industries, and building trust in people from across all walks of life. He is a living symbol of courage, strength, and integrity.
  •  Dwayne could quickly name a running mate with strong experience in government, a reputation for selfless service, and a record of success   While Dwayne acts a CEO, Ronald Reagan style, providing vision, values, guiding principles, and strong leadership, his Vice President could act as a Chief Operating Officer, responsible for the more day-to-day administration of government. A perfect team.
  • Dwayne is close to some of the best, the brightest, the most experienced and dedicated people in government, military, and policy-making   These are people who would surely be eager to serve in a Johnson administration. 
  • Dwayne would combine the best qualities of John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan along with his unique role as a cultural icon   Possessing youth, vigor, vision, charm, confidence, accomplishment, and love for America, Dwayne would bring out the best in all of us. He would marshal our capacity for greatness.

What does Dwayne Johnson Stand for?

Dwayne is not a politician, but based on what we know, here are some general policies we believe he would support:
  • Individual liberty  Empowering individuals to take charge of their own lives, and expanding opportunities for success. Dwayne knows the value of motivation and empowerment like no other and would surely favor tearing down hurdles to realizing our dreams.
  • Free enterprise, but with an end to corporate welfare and an emphasis on job creation   Dwayne is not beholden to Wall Street interests. He has experienced the value of free enterprise, but understands the drain that welfare and bailouts for large banks and corporations produces on our society. He knows first hand how damaging the loss of jobs and communities can be and would be an unparalleled leader of change born of his concern, compassion, and understanding.
  •  Better education and access to health care through greater choice  Dwayne stands for opportunity. Charter schools, for example,  have expanded opportunities but have not been adopted widely enough to meet the needs and hopes of the poor and minorities. Choice and opportunity through similar efforts in health care would be consistent with Dwayne's advocacy and charitable work toward a healthy society with access to good healthcare for all. He could be expected to bring down regulatory barriers and reduce the influence of impersonal bureaucrats who fail to understand the needs of individuals.
  • Renewed emphasis on civil rights   From speech codes on college campuses, to rising fears of harassment and danger among minorities, from unprecedented mass imprisonment for nonviolent crimes to intolerance of those who are different, America needs help. Dwayne has lived through adversity, had numerous brushes with the law as a youth, experienced intolerance as well as overcoming, and loves the American ideals of freedom. He is sensitive to other cultures and lifestyles through a world of experience. There is no doubt that Dwayne would be a strong champion of civil rights.
  • Encouraging economic growth to create more and better jobs for those who need it most    Dwayne is results oriented. Lower taxes, smarter spending with less government bureaucracy, and strengthening opportunities to start and expand small businesses are among the things that stand in the way of better livelihoods for Americans. 
  • The need for a strong military  that is ordered into battle only in the most extreme cases  Dwayne is a living example of how strength and power can limit the need for unnecessary interventions: "peace through strength." 
  • The importance of regaining respect for America around the world  Dwayne projects strength, fearlessness, commitment, and toughness; indeed he symbolizes these assets. Those who would do us harm would think twice. Those who might wish us well would be heartened by Dwayne's example of love, kindness and regard for other cultures.
