American Presidency: Is It a Joke (II)?

This article was triggered by this news article: Bill Clinton: Chelsea would make a great president. While I appreciate the humor behind President Bill Clinton's joke, it's time for me to re-visit the subject of American Presidency: Is It A Joke?, with this sequel ...

Follow up:

Here are my three key points:

  1. It's time for America to amend its Constitution to make the American Presidency a more serious job.

  2. America is a republic, not a monarchy!

  3. America can no longer afford another Democratic President, be it a Clinton or even an Obama!

Next, let me elaborate these three points one by one.

1. Constitutional changes

In my book, "Saving America, Chinese Style", I suggested the following constitutional changes to the American Presidency as absolutely necessary:

  1. Limiting the American Presidency to one-term (e.g. six years).

  2. Raising the statutory requirements for the American Presidency, such as the minimum age to 55 and only after having served as a state governor for one full-term, at least.

Since the book was published in December 2012, I have published several articles on the American Presidency. Four examples:

  1. Barack Obama vs. Harry Truman

  2. Barack Obama vs. Richard Nixon

  3. Barack Obama vs. Abraham Lincoln

  4. Correctly Assessing Chinese Leaders and American Presidents.

Case in point: America must raise the competency of the American Presidency!

2. America is a republic, not a monarchy!

Instead of having one king or queen as in a monarchy, America now has 536 kings or queens! Here is the math: one President, 100 Senators, and 435 House Representatives. They all work for one purpose: getting re-elected ad nauseam, even if it means destroying America by emptying her public treasury! Worse yet, many of them seek to enrich themselves. Here is a recent story from 60 Minutes: Washington’s open secret: profitable PACs.

Worse still, America now has its own “royal” families: the Kennedys, the Bushes, or even the Clintons!

Case in point: Is this how America should look alike? More profoundly, is this an ideal form of government? For more, read: Towards An Ideal Form of Government.

3. America can no longer afford another Democratic President!

America is being destroyed by Democratic Socialism, championed by all the Democratic Presidents since FDR (except for Truman)! For more, read: The Democratic Party is the Party of New Slavery!

Now, back to President Clinton ... He was not even a good President - What makes him think Chelsea would make a great President? President Clinton was the luckiest American President until President Obama! For more, read: The Myth of The Bill Clinton Presidency.

For President Obama, watch this video: The Obama Presidency.

Case in point: The Democratic Party is the Party of New Slavery!

  1. What - Another President Clinton? Just say "no"!

  2. What - Another Democratic President? Just say "no"!

5. Discussion

Leadership matters! Experience matters! The American Presidency matters! Here are five great American Presidents:

6. Closing

America is desperately in need of another great President in 2016. This President can only come from the GOP. For more, read my new book: The GOP Bible for 2016.
