I am totally disgusted w/the continual rot I see in American politics. I Love my country, always will, but we absolutely and desperately need a massive house cleaning.
Lawmakers in the United States (or anywhere really) should have to live by the same laws they make for the rest of us. If so, they’d (hopefully) be wiser making the laws, knowing they too are subject to them.
Frail and pathetic elected officials not only make my country a laughingstock on the world stage, but could literally be a threat to things like national security.
I care more about American elected officials sanity/competence than I do about what party they claim affiliation with. If more people voted for sanity over party, we’d (I think) be much better off.
How well do you keep up w/the positions of elected officials on various issues? Whether you agree w/their positions or not is another question and discussion for another day.
What I want from the next President of the United States is that said person be intelligent, strong, moral, and care about the country. I don’t think any of these things are too much to ask for. I don’t expect perfection, because none of us live up to that, but be a reasonably decent human.
