Exorcist Elected Head of Political Party in Mexico

If you’re tired of politicians promising to “clean house” when they’re elected and then failing to accomplish the task once they’re in office, perhaps it’s time to take the lead of a political party in Mexico whose members elected an exorcist as their president.

The party is the Green party in the city of Leon in the Mexican state of Guanajuato and the exorcist/president is Carlos Joaquin Chacon Calderon. Calderon comes to office with solid credentials on both sides of the paranormal/political spectrum.

As an exorcist/paranormal investigator, Calderon has a PhD in Parapsychology from the Complutense University of Madrid which was established in 1293, making it one of the oldest universities in the world. He also studied homeopathic medicine and has taught courses in Mystic Philosophy, Interpretation Symbolic and Mental Control. With this knowledge, he has exorcised houses and hosts a radio show on supernatural and paranormal subjects.

On the political and environmental side, Calderon joined the Municipal Committee of the Green Party in León in 1995 and has held offices such as Secretary of Ecology and Environment and alderman. He founded the National Association of Ecological Groups León (ANGEL), a non-governmental organization supporting many environmental projects  including the Estancia del Alamo Ecological Park, the location of the Prime Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary in Guanajuato.

Calderon believes his experience as an exorcist helps him as a politician, as he pointed out in a recent radio interview.

In fact I don't mind sharing that there are a lot of people here listening to this program now who have had their houses cleansed of evil spirits thanks to my work. Some of the things I have had to see have been truly shocking … Working as an exorcist is for me as real as being a politician, and both are noble undertakings carried out for the service of the people.

An exorcist and environmentalist who removes demons and saves butterflies. What is there not to like about this guy? If Carlos Joaquin Chacon Calderon lived in the U.S., he could be the perfect candidate to clean out the whatever it is haunting Washington DC. What do you think?

Could I interest you in making a contribution to the Green Party?
