In the heart of America, an average Joe decides to run for congress, on a third party ticket. The only problem: he is running against Congressman Dick Gephardt and has no campaign war chest. A satirical look at American democracy from an immigrant's perspective portrays why third parties have not and will not gain a foothold. And why some people are better off sticking with their day jobs instead of running for office.
