Anyone thought of running for office?

I've often thought of running for office knowing i have no chance of winning. I am an atheist and would proudly proclaim it during a campaign. My main issue to run on would be to make gun ownership ridiculously difficult to obtain and maintain as well as an outright ban on military style rifles. My next issue would be to lift restrictions on abortion access. Finally, i would insist that churches, especially mega churches, pay taxes. Oh, also 100% marijuana legalization. Living in northeast Houston suburbs, i might receive about 10% of the vote with this platform, but i think it would be important to put these ideas out there during a campaign. I personally don't hear this enough. Maybe 2020.
