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 ...
Here are my three key points:
It's time for America to amend its Constitution to make the American Presidency a more serious job.
America is a republic, not a monarchy!
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:
Limiting the American Presidency to one-term (e.g. six years).
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:
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!
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!
What - Another President Clinton? Just say "no"!
What - Another Democratic President? Just say "no"!
Leadership matters! Experience matters! The American Presidency matters! Here are five great American Presidents:
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.
