Average Joe addresses the very real issue of grandstanding “fat cats” in Washington—professional politicians who have become so comfortable with wealth and power that they have lost sight of the reasons that originally propelled them into politics. In the book, Blankenship wonders, “What if it were me? Could one truly ordinary man choose to run for federal office on the platform of common values without the trappings of power and wealth?” These are the questions that today’s candidates must remember during their final days of campaigning. Platforms identified in the book include: supporting capitalism by opposing government bailouts and stimulus plans; deterring complacency in elected officials by supporting congressional term limits; and supporting a federal government that will limit its role in public education and leave the decision-making to individual states. All of these “Average Joes” seek to redirect power from the federal government to the state and local governments, where better decisions can be made closer to those who will be most heavily impacted. Just as the reader cheers on the book’s protagonist, Americans will cast their ballots for the hardworking candidate with traditional values who will fight to protect our freedoms.
