Why do most leaders lack the guts to face some social issues?
Why should all children go to school up to 18? I think they should be given the option to quit after they are 13 if they wish to with parents agreement. There should be a social and economical format of puishement for small criminals ( beating or public humilation). politicians should be forced to say and follow the truth.
I'm not sure why you think a 13 year old is capable of determining if finishing their education is important or not. You should be required to go to school until you are an adult, and even at 18 are you really emotionally ready to make a decision like dropping out of school--one that is going to affect you for the rest of your life?
What exactly is a small criminal? And politicians have never, ever in all of the civilizations that have lived been honest and truthful. That is just now how the system of governmental control works.
Well, the issues/solutions you propose are a little extreme. But in most cases, the main reason is that politicians are afraid of ostracizing constituents. This is the main reason every politician (democrats and republicans) almost always spend more and rarely cut the budget. Cutting programs means angering some demographics, whereas adding them means pleasing more. By confronting an issue, you win the supporters over, but lose all of the opponents.
However, as mainstreet said, 13 year olds aren't really ready to make that decision as to whether they are ready to finish their education. What's more, requiring that attendance helps deter a class of uneducated folk who won't be able to find work and thus, become dependent on the government.
Because they don't have any answers to major problems.And i agree that some should be allowed a little more room than others because of their gifts.
Politicians have always tried to say whatever pleases all the people all the time, which can not be done with honesty and forthrightness.
Allowing children to dump school when they want will simply breed a population of ignorant citizens dependant on the government for support because immigrants have all the manual labor jobs.
They aren't leaders, they are politicians. To stay elected, they have to appeal to the most voters, and most voters are stupid.
Children should go to school until they finish ed a degree so that they can have a better future, find good jobs and help develop their community. Politicians should exercise their power to educate children so that they will not be involve in gambling, riots, and gangsterism so they cannot add problem to the community.
Leaders lack the moral aptitude to understand many of the social issues facing our nation. I feel that far too many leaders live in a world outside the existence of normal Americans.
Leaders (politicians) lack the guts to stand up to party leadership/party rulers. Leaders (politicians) do not want to lose their jobs.
I believe that we should have an apprenticeship program where kids who don't want to be doctors, lawyers, or teachers of classes like the indiginous people from the first to second latitudes should have a choice to take classes and apprentice themselves to butchers, bakers, and candlestick makers.
Because they want votes, and in order to do that, they need to be in the middle on most of the issues. If they are extremest on either side, they are definitely going to lose some votes somewhere. If they are just on the middle ground, they have the potential to get votes from both sides
I think you are referring to puppets/figureheads who are advertised as "leaders." An actual leader would be someone who does face social issues.

You know what sort of debate I'd like to see? One with instant fact checkers, a buzzer that goes off when they lie, and a microphone that switches off when their time is up. And I would like to see them address the real issues like.1. The Homeless2. Hunger In America3. All Our Jobs Being Sent...

Why do political people seem to demonize the opposition rather than discuss issues?I see this on both the right and the left and it drives me batty. Why do conservatives like to use "liberal" as a dirty word rather than debate issues on merit? It's easier to whine about liberal this...

Has anyone noticed that the focus is never REALLY on education? It's like the red-headed step-child of political hopefuls. If they don't pretend to care, they don't stand a chance getting elected, but if they really cared, they wouldn't get to be prominent in politics, because the...
