TO BE OR NOT TO BE IN THE NEWSPAPERS, to be or not to be with a woman, to be or not to be in the mass medias, TO BE OR NOT TO BE FREDERIC VIDAL? That is the question. For the website http://fredkelly.wix.com/mikefuller to reply!!

Dear Prime minister,
I did not think one day I would write you a message from the United States and that I would publish it first on this nice social media service, Twitter. It’s a surprise of 2016 and it’s a good thing, I suppose. I like communication and I want to improve mine as I’m still the Frederic Vidal of the XXth century who met Francois Mitterrand in December 1980, Gare de Lyon, just a few months before our Victory!! First, I want to congratulate you for your new Government and the changes that were necessary. Now, you are the leader of the best team in town!! Frankly speaking, I would like to be one of them but you know that it’s impossible because I made my choice and I was not the right choice in France for politics, being first an artist, a teenage decision that is still not obsolete!! Unfortunately, I did not do the career I could have behind me. Never mind, I joined the French State and I’m prouder than ever I have been a civil servant, attache of our great Country administration.
But it’s the past right now and the XXIst century is really different for me. I know why, I organized it and it’s the reason why I wanted to inform you what is it all about at the highest level, now that we’re in February 2016. My father, Ignasi Vidal, relocated in Monaco after the war, staid the painter from Barcelona all his life that fine. Consequently, it’s important for me you were first Spanish and from Catalonia, with your father also a painter moreover!! I see it like a sign and the evidence I can believe in you and be sure you are a person who is unique and favorable to me. I hope, in the future, to meet you in Paris or here, where I am now, in America, United States of America. You know I left France in 2003 after my 15 years at the Caisse des depots to realize my dream!! To be American, to live there, in Hollywood where all my beloved TV shows of the 1960’s were filmed and produced: that’s so much an exciting ‘pre-retirement’ project I succeeded to manage well the whole decade. At almost 57 now, I feel good to be in the 2010’s younger than ever (a physical and mental gift from my dad!) and TO DO IT AGAIN. The context is not the same. There is no doubt I had a fantastic previous decade, the 2000’s in Los Angeles, California. In 2006 I got my US citizenship, veritable accomplishment for me regarding what I did and wanted TO START A NEW CAREER. It’s in progress!! In fact, it’s longer than expected but for music like for movies, it’s a question of fame and publicity and I could check already in France before that there was some difficulty for me to access the medias (possibly coincidental or connected to my dad, Spanish civil war refugee?).
It’s not a big deal. What is more important is what I have to tell you now about my presence in America. I am lucky to be a dual citizen (thanks to a De Gaulle decree of the 1960’s). I think it’s great but it’s a little complicated. What I think and I do as a jurisprudence: when I’m in America, I’m American totally, when I’m in France, French 100%. But what about French in America? o%? Let’s say 25% additional!! What the people think about that? Because I must inform you that I decided (already in 2010 but it was postponed) to have a political career in my new Country that basically is the first one for me now I pledged allegiance to the American flag. I mean MY FUTURE IS IN THE UNITED STATES but France does not represent only the past at all for me, it’s my native Country and it’s still active and strong this second nationality!! I suppose even if it was weak, it would anyway be criticized somewhere there in the political establishment. Makes sense, a dual citizen, it creates possibly a problem for some people. I DON’T THINK SO. It’s a routine UN worldwide reality. I must tell you that because my blog on WordPress is the only library I have of my films (I couldn’t produce until now), I decided to INTENSIFY IN POLITICS. Maybe, probably, I’m more useful there and it’s unfortunately that I did not get the ambition in Sciences-Po, rue Saint-Guillaume to have the IEP Degree for the ENA directly and politics!! It’s like that, still BrAmStOcKeR in my mind certainly, you cannot change!! Never too late, it’s what I scheduled to wait until my 50’s. So, after all, my dear Prime minister, I confirmed the Web I wanna be candidate for the Presidential election this year.
Look at this strange candidate who has so much success at the primaries: Trump. It and political science. This guy (Donald) HE NEVER DID POLITICS and from a day to another, he’s future Prez!! No joke this is the evidence something is possible for me, obviously as a mini-candidate!! Trump is massive marketing more than really popular, billionaire even if he’s somebody who filed for bankruptcy. Extreme America. I would prefer regular one, I’m sorry, I didn’t find it. I came back in the United States 4 months ago from Nice. I left from a day to another, I had to go fast, already 4 years in France and nothing special except my plan was ready! It was time to move. I used this waiting time, since 2012, to meditate about my first US years. It’s not normal it was so slow. It’s not to criticize or to create problems but I must acknowledge I have been managing bad ANTI-NETWORKING around me. Too ambitious, too French? Who knows? I was a homeowner, I divorced and I lost everything. Time for a comeback!! In 2015, I was in Nashville for a musical pelerinage and with my new songs, we were not invited to play too much. It’s a shame, it’s about to change. In 2016, I’m in Atlanta, Martin Luther King Jr hometown. I feel comfortable I’m gonna make it and from the shelter of the Atlanta Mission where I decided to sleep as I am seen as a homeless by too many people, I finalize my plan TO BE BACK ON TRACK all at once!! I was a member of the Rotary in Los Angeles and of the Republican Party: it didn’t help. I was also a new entrepreneur intown with my creation TIMEFRAMES LLC.
These 4 months of bad reminder of the 2000’s gonna stop with the New York State primary of April 19 to prepare: it’s there I want to start my political CHALLENGE: I’m a winner and I have ideas for the US to WIN!! I put all my best about a Presidential program for the next 4 years on this site: http://fredkelly.wix.com/mikefuller I am sure and confident I can be useful IN THIS PREZ DEBATE as a mini-candidate! From New York to CALIFORNIA, June 7. It’s my motivation, it’s my goal. I have also a new film project, a big draft I begin like was my very first script THE FRENCH COP in 2006. So, I continue my blog on WordPress https://fredvidal.wordpress.com and LA FORCE TRANQUILLE!! My last comment about USA: so hard to meet someone after a divorce! There is the best and the worst here.
