Perhaps even a political knowledge exam, although that might be a bit of a stretch.

The point is you have someone that was voted into the WH not by their experience or knowledge, but by what they said/promised. If he can get in on those merits, then so can anyone else that meets the minimum requirements.


So...where do you draw the line?
After the fact, he has exceeded expectations.

There is no line other than be the requisite age and birth place.

Obama, Bush and Hillary were not very qualified. That didn't stop them.

HRC had title of Sec of State to fill her resume, and she showed her inexperience in that job. But, she still wanted the top job. Obama had very little as well. He was a state legislator, who basically got a gift US Senate seat and the media pretty much made him the "one". Bush owned the Rangers And before that got elected to Congress, just like Hillary, by using his name recognition.

I just wish folks would stop treating folks that do win like they are some type of "god" like figure. They all are just regular folks, and from what I've seen in the past 40 years, are not even close to be all the "great" from either side of the aisle.

What makes you qualified to have an opinion?

Were you vetted before giving your thoughts?

I'm pretty sure George Washington didn't have any political experience. Do you think he was not qualified? In my opinion, a life long politician is the last thing we need to represent We the People. They have screwed us for years.

If you want to talk experience, I would suggest that business and financial experience highly out ways political experience. And yes, there is political experience in conducting business. I think Ross Perot would have been a great president. He certainly was a good man and a successful business man.

I draw at least one line at voting for a 35 year old. That does meet the requirement, but I cannot imagine anyone who is 35 having enough experience to even begin to do the job, however smart and otherwise capable they may be. That applies to anyone in their later 30s, or into their early 40s, also, for the same reason.

The iconic CEOs are probably not well suited for the job, either. Those who are the founders of a company set up a compliant board of directors, and do not know how to work by and through a legislative process with 538 independent members who are not his employees, and over whom he has no control or power.

Perot was in that boat, and ironically, his fortune was built from the swamp. EDS was the main data processing contractor for Social Security, iirc., and he got that contract in the old fashioned way. Bribing government officials. Or so I have read and believe.

And what he proposed was cordoning off city areas, and then to illegally break and enter into all dwellings and illegally seize all weapons. That would have 'only' violated the 4th amendment, and the 5th amendment.


The point of modern propaganda isn't only to misinform or push an agenda. It is to exhaust your critical thinking, to annihilate truth.

It didn't. You made that up - - unless you mean "you" in a generic way. He's done some good things and some things that I reject.
