I don't understand why the knee jerk reaction of people is to say that Trump as president would be a disaster?
We have had the most experienced politicians as president in the last one hundred years, and yet they were in the executive office when we had real disasters.
The Congress is continually in gridlock, and it is filled with long time incumbents.
The message that the people should read is that the current political system of electing people into office is the root cause of the decline of the US.
If we continue the traditional method of electing politicians, then we shouldn't expect any better results in 2016.
The history of the US will verify that the politicians didn't really help the country, and they and the loyal party voters may be the root cause.
How can anyone really believe that we are on the road to recovery, and another old school old time politicians will find that road?
I am not saying that Trump would be a good president, but I am saying that the politicians have set the bar so low, that we would hardly notice, if he was president.
Obama is a perfect example, he was a politician but he really lacked experience, as most of his work was done at the state level, and he spent the last two years as US Senator campaigning for the presidency.
He did excel at campaigning, and fund raising, but those skills only get you into office. Once in office, he still relied on his campaigning and fund raising skills, and not on being president.
The previous presidents also had their quirks while in office, and my opinion is based on the failure of a system that prides itself on professional politicians, and many of them were lawyers. Both of these attributes have not been useful for moving the country forward.
The two political party system is also at fault, as both parties are diametrically opposed in the goals for the country. They spend most of their time fighting like siblings over their parents will.
Failures are how we learn, and the tradition system of the last one hundred years has failed, and to avoid continued failures, we need to change the system, and that includes how and who we elect to office. This is especially true when the office is that of the US president.
