WHY IS THERE NEVER A REALLY GOOD PRESIDENT?
Why is the above always the case?
The answer is that the electoral process does not work successfully.
The political process is controlled by our two political parties. Each party is focused on their agenda:
Push their ideology
Get their candidate elected
The political process is not about getting a qualified president. It is about politics.
Politics is telling the voters what they want to hear so they will vote for you. Politicians lie. The voters do not want to hear the truth, they want to hear good news for them. Example: If I am elected, gas prices will go to under $1 a gallon. If the voters believe this, they are fools but they will vote for you.
The blame is on both politicians and the voters.
Change the presidential selection process to focus on the most qualified candidate. A candidate that if elected president will make significant progress in getting the United States back on track.
Politicians will never do this. Voters will have to act independently of the two political parties.
