Since the election of current President, Donald Trump, it’s seems that Presidency has turned into somewhat of a joke. Especially with the rumors of Mark Cuban running in 2020 against the current President. Next thing you know we’ll be asking ourselves if James Franco and Seth Rogan would make good President and Vice President candidates.
I’m trying to keep this as neutral as possible. I’m really not one for politically motivated talk but at the current moment, the news is littered with it.
Mark Cuban has said he won’t for sure run until his wife says she is open to it. That’s a good start though I guess, right? These strong up billionaires we seem to be growing through just isn’t what we need. Being a veteran, I am definitely partial to requiring military service. I mean, the title Commander and Chief isn’t just hot air. As the President, you sit in charge of all the military forces along with the WHOLE country. Granted we have checks and balances set so that complete mayhem cannot ensue. Of course, we also have appointed (chosen) officials that sit beside the President to help with the decision making and to sometimes sway the decision to meet certain agendas.
Requiring the President to have served would give them a better understating of certain aspects when it comes to military decisions. Certain drawbacks or moves would possibly be more thought out decisions especially in this time of war that we are in against terrorism. While we don’t see it locally here in the US being such a big power we are looked to when our fellow UN countries are attacked. We do have SECDEF for a reason. We have a great one currently actually, in the form of, General(ret.) James “Mad Dog” Mattis. Did you see that picture of him in a suit sitting in the last seat of what appeared to be a CH-47 Chinook with the cargo door open? What a total badass!
Maybe we just require these positions to be veterans that whispering voice into the Presidents ear. Granted the President doesn’t have to listen to them. El President couldn’t decide to do whatever he/she wanted. Okay, not anything but you understand what I’m saying. While the experience would be a plus that is what the cabinet is for. The cabinet is built of positions that focus on key aspects of the Nation. We just have to trust that the President will choose good officials. Do you think military service should be a requirement? I know for sure I now feel political service should be a requirement.
