John Lee Hooker is a Visionary

The blues music legend made a name for himself -- forging his own trademark sound and look. John Lee has traveled the world, but is an all-American man, born and raised in "the most southern place on earth" -- Clarksdale, Mississippi. As a young man, Hooker traveled to Detroit -- Motor City -- where he honed his craft and began making hit albums.

His ability to lead is without question -- Hooker was a band leader for decades.

John Lee Hooker is a man of values. "I always was kind of a Christian, because I was raised that way with Sunday school", he tells Living Blues Magazine. You may not believe this, but I never had a fight since I been born. I never been in trouble, never been involved in violence. Never.

In our war-weary country, we still struggle with the effects and dissent that a prolonged war in Iraq and Afghanistan have caused, but if elected president, John Lee is a man who can put a firm foot down against war, and solve our problems through repetitive riffs and a deeply intimate knowledge of the human condition. "I don't believe in fightin'. I'm a lover not a fighter," he proclaims, with wisdom in brevity.

VOTE JOHN LEE HOOKER AS YOUR INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENCY

Under the visionary direction of John Lee Hooker as President of the United States, every state might become a blues state. And what a fine country that would be.

If elected, John Lee Hooker will not need some fancy pop singer at the inaugural party. He can hold down the musical entertainment himself -- but he may want a little help from good friends B.B. King, Ry Cooder, Jimmy Reed, Johnny Taylor, and Muddy Waters.
