Soon Americans will be electing a new leader of the United States of America. The election is about 15 months away. Already, I am sick of the rhetoric of the current candidates. The current president is as much of a lame duck as I have seen in my lifetime. It's embarrassing to have a president who is often unable to express his thoughts cleanly. It gives one the impression of extreme ineptitude regardless of the intent and possible underlying intelligence.
So, the questions are... Who will the next American President be? What moral character is required? What intelligence level is required? What leadership skills are required? and.. What experience is required?
Having spent a lot of time in Los Angeles this past summer, I have gotten a good look at Hollywood and the Beach Cities. I have seen the likes of people who say there is the east coast, the west coast, and Jesusland inbetween. Well, as someone from Jesusland, I am not very impressed with intelligence that I see displayed by the average Angeleno. There is something about Los Angeles that brings out the worst in people. One of the most noticable detractions is stunted intelligence. A lot of this is due to the incredible melting pot of cultures. My point here is not to rail on the city of Los Angeles or it's people. My point is, here is one of the most advanced cities on earth, and I am questioning the intelligence I see on the street. It begs the question, who is actually voting for the next President and what are they looking for?
Or, does it even matter what people think? It may already be decided by power brokers and people with money.
What do you think?
