The Making of a President

His language should be good, not street or gutter language, but a language that everyone understands and would listen to.

When you vote for a President of the United States of America, you want this person to look good and be a wise person, a diplomat, and a good communicator.

He should be a person who you would like to be around because he makes you feel good, he makes you believe in the right thing, and energetic to the effect that you would follow him in what he is doing. 

When he visits other countries, as your representative, you want him to be distinct, but not pushy to the extent that he is showing off as though he was the greatest president the United States has ever had. 

You want this President to think out problems before he reacts to them. As an example, a serious problem comes up and he has to make a decision on it. As President he has to get other opinions about it from his advisors, and not make a decision until he studies his advisors' opinions—then make a decision that he and his advisors can live with. 

As President he would be able to get along with other politicians, making them think that he is a wise and sociable person. To do this he must be a good listener, not to make comments about other politician’s mistakes—if there is a mistake, he should describe the mistake and give suggestions on how to fix it.

If he tells you how to fix it, follow his suggestions to see if they work. If he has troubles in fixing the problem, then work with him to fix the problem.

When he makes speeches he should make sure they make sense, and not rumble on and on. His English should be good, not street or gutter language, but a language that everyone understands and enjoying listening to. 

There were several presidents that stood out, in recent years, that represented these qualities that I have mentioned: Both Roosevelts, Harry Truman, Kennedy, Reagan, Clinton, and Obama were good in expressing their opinions, look like a president, and acted presidential. 

The next time we elect a president, we must have standards that they will have to meet.

If we don’t, we will end up in a mess, like we did in the years of 2016, 2017, and 2018.
