It has become apparent to many Americans that electing the U.S. President has gotten far away from its beginning of what it should be — the People’s choice to hire the best person for the job, to lead America to a better future. More so now and in the past few elections, the notion of running for President has become a too long mass media spectacle with too much money involved. Of course modernization does grow. Yet, more problematic since the past 3-4 elections is an establishment apparatus that wants to steer the election away from the American People, so as the American People essentially do not have much of a choice…where policy for the U.S. makes no real change of course whether it’s a Democrat or Republican in the Executive Branch…(which has now led to bad results) which then makes the election process merely a formal celebrity pageant.
Myself and many Americans, weary of the irresponsible defilement of America by bad government officials, look for a President that has a soul of an American, the soul of a Patriot that will look to advantage the U.S. and put the U.S. and Americans first and foremost in policy in accordance with the U.S. Constitution.
It should not matter (to a reasonable extent) if the person is appearance challenged (fat, old, bald, short, dress attire, etc.). Recall that William Taft became President weighing some 300 pounds. Race, sex and religious background should be secondary considerations behind issue stances (An employer of course would legally say these should not be an issue). Americans do not have to have a college litmus test that says the new President must be from an Ivy League school (Harvard, Yale) — when most times the Presidential job requires mainly Pro-America common sense. Presidents Lincoln and Taylor never finished school. The President job should not be a celebrity position, like as we have now, that is choreographed, teleprompter dependent and ‘word worried’ about finding new words. The Presidential candidates more importantly do not have to be ’establishment approved’…to say they must meet with and speak before the Council of Foreign Relations (which is what has been occurring –Obama, Kerry, Romney, McCain have). Lastly is the media — is the media going to be fair to the candidates, treat them fairly, objectively…or is the media going to try mockery, belittling or dismiss valid points important to true American principles? (This includes not just pro-Obama mediacrats against Republicans, but also establishment media against Washington outsiders)
One last point, Americans do not need an Elitist President who dismisses the U.S. Congress or the States Rights or the American People’s voices (which is exactly what happened on the Obamacare bill). Americans do not need a President who tries to get around Congress by doing actions thru executive orders, doing military actions from the UN or actions thru the courts. Americans do not need an Elitist President or Candidate that thinks he has to speak in code words, generalities, meaningless tired rehash political show labels (such as ‘tax and spend‘) or long diatribes because such Elitist thinks the American People are just too uneducated enough. Recall the worst debate ever (sleeper debate) was McCain-Obama in 2008 (not one real issue was brought up).
Yes, Presidential candidates make promises …and then the standard of the pageant is truly shown when such promises are immediately broken once actually taking office. Americans should look to candidates that talk sense, talk without propaganda, talk straight to the problems facing this Nation.
America does not need a pageant, she needs a President with an American-Patriot soul. (And a President with no czars — the result of too big government and an Executive branch that has been hijacked).
