A Heretic Thought...

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Daytona Condo Realty, 386-405-4408

We are in awe that we have the first black president. We are weighing in and are ready to the awes of having a woman-president.We already had a close call...

Then we might want a poor president, or young president, or Jewish president, or “green” president…

There is always an underlying thought that they may also turn to be good presidents.

What about the heretic idea of choosing a stellar president, of any race and of any gender? As long as s/he is stellar?

I am sure that if we start looking for one, we may find a stellar one. But this is what we need to start looking for. A darn great President. Not the one who wants to make us smaller, or poorer, or weaker, or angrier, or unhappy...

Just a heretic thought…

How about someone who has a record of success and accomplishments - and who actually ran a comany or state?

Jon, President Romney may just be the best president we have had in a long time!

Someone who will not follow the long history of Presidential candidates (including their own father) releasing their tax returns is certainly a heretic candidate.

Jon,  One thing that bothers me a great deal about the rhetoric around this election is that success has been viewed by the masses and media as a bad thing.  I am for more inclined to follow success than I am the apparent attitude that the Government owes everyone something.  Yes, I am a fellow Heretic....

Race, and gender, and religion, should not come into play Jon. I remember the hoo hah with Kennedy as Catholic. You are on the mark with your BEST and STELLAR is what we need....  how about a great Russian background American? Some day....

Jon:  I think the only way this can happen is if some day we elect an independent candidate who really IS independent... and very much a moderate.  Fiscally somewhat conservative, and socially somewhat liberal.

And then, that independent President picks people for their cabinet who are the best people for the jobs... regardless of their political party.

Jon - I think that Mike (#4) hits the nail squarely on the head ... and Karen Anne (#17) rises the heretical bar!  Party politics is unlikely to produce the "stellar" event!  Fortunately I suspect there are far more "heretics" than there are party players ... they (we) just need to be motivated ... the organization will naturally follow ...  but I also suspect that we need to be looking "local" before we venture into the "national" arena ...

Jack:  The closest thing to an independent who was "up" for selection in the primaries was Jon Huntsman.  Yes, he was a tad more conservative than I would have wanted, but I felt he also knew that his own beliefs should not be duplicated in the government if he would have gained the nomination.  I really wish he had gone independent, because this might have been the year that his selection/election may have been possible.

But, his own party threw him out with the trash.  He wasn't crazy enough for them. 

I just cannot imagine anyone with a working brain choosing Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Michelle Bachmann or Mitt Romney over Jon Huntsman... but they did.

And, as I said above about choosing the best person for the job... President Obama, a Democrat, saw that Jon Huntsman was an excellent choice to be Ambassador to China, so he asked him, and Huntsman accepted.  He did an EXCELLENT job as Ambassador.  But, that really ticked off the rest of the conservatives... that he would DARE work in a Democratic administration... so they trashed him.

How foolish, and what a shame.

Unfortunately in 2010 the Supreme Court changed the preamble of the constitution from We the People to We the Corporations.

They ruled that corporations are persons, entitled by the U.S. Constitution to buy elections and run our government.

An independent candidate will also need to spend their own money to be truely independent thereofore limiting the pool to only billionaires.

Jon, if a person ever ran for office on those traits, he would be snubbed by the media and/or assassinated before being president.

Mitchell - can't figure how tax returns characterize the future president. I can't understand how it reflects on the candidate. just to show that he is rich, successful?

I think with the same reasoning we may ask them to show up in their underwear

Deborah - you are absolutely correct and on my list of steps to Socialism, this is one. I remember that when you get ambitious, or do something that rises above mediocre, you are stopped there and told to be modest, be like comrades, do not cary your head up, or you can lose it.

Ambitious was a bad word, successful more than others was not good and was despised...

you are so right on that

Gary - in all honesty, it should be like with Moses. Only those who were not born in slavery reached Israel. So, the president of Russian descend, born here, and maybe born from parents born here - why not. But it is a great law that the President has to be born in US. As I said in my previous blog, we are as bad as free radicals. Born in slavery will never trully become a free man

Karen Anne - there nothing to disagree. I think our problem is not just the candidates, but us, We The People. If we think about the nation and about the future, we will have Presidents of that caliber. But we get engaged in pulling the blamket, and screaming louder so that our group gets more, then Presidents are playing chess pandering not to the interest of the nation as a whole, but to interests of groups.

Unfortunately, it is the old rule that we deserve what we get.

Wouldn't you agree?

Karen Anne -(#19). I tend to agree with your comment. Even though I do not know Jon Huntsman well enough, he sure shown intellectual capacity.

But on the same token, how cold people elect Obama? He should have a honorable place in your lineup as a worst suited person with teribly flawed ideas, proven to be bad and destructive in the long history of the 20th century.

he is a devoted inventor of perpetuum mobile...

I remember Mikhail Gorbachev, who was our beloved celebrity when he took over the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. But after 2 years we still listened to the same crap and then we wondered why he was the only one who believed in those archaic and deadly ideas leving us, and the country in the dust.

you can't believe how Obama reminds me Gorbachev. Of course, Gorbachev is a cool guy for Americans. He is a huge disappointment and loser for us, his former subjects.

So, yes... but no :)

Satar - excellent point. We can't expect a stellar president for the nation thinking about the future only through the issue close to their hearts.

Seeing the world through a free condom would result in president with certain qualities being elected. If media really represnets us, we do not look very encouraging
