Does the leader of a country need any special training to rule a country or can anybody just walk into office and rule?

Yes, I know he can appoint advisers who are competent, but will he accept advice if he cannot understand the reasoning behind it?

Hi Cat, they should have to live off the dole for 6 months, living in a rented house with no security of tenure.

Then they should be thrown out on the streets to live homeless for another month.

Another month in a mental institution, then another week in A&E on a trolley.

After that, if they still want to become leader, they may do more cognizant of the needs of ordinary citizens.

We have had PhDs from great Universities as presidents and they have not done any better than average persons.

Why?

Because a President is just one part of the whole equation and the people have to get involved in civic matters and make the changes (for better) that are needed.



It happens.

Poll: What Qualifications Should The Leader Of A Country Have?


Do you really think that there is one politician that says no lies?

As for lies in the fora they can be exposed with facts or are there different sets of facts?

Hi Sophi

When a country is well governed,
poverty and a mean condition are something to be ashamed of.

When a country is ill governed,
riches and honors are something to be ashamed of.

Huh, taking orders does require a modicum of intelligence right :) Has off shore accounts, is corrupt, insane or stupid or both :) Greedy, perverted, viciously possessive of his power..:) Will kill ya if necessary to keep it, even bomb entire countries into the stone age with depleted eu rainium. :) Politicians how ever just sell out and take orders from their owners. :) Simple.. Requires deluded, sleepy headed, delusional, ignorant believers to function.. all works just right. :) Right ? Oh, oh I see a flock of bulging suite cases flying my way. :O)

A true leader would have an education in humanities; their qualities would include compassion, an insight into the needs of the common man and the plight of those who are often disregarded, ie the poor and the mentally ill.


Politics is not about those people, it's about big business and wealth.


It astounds me that people are so passionate about who's gonna win the POTUS race, most people I know don't give a flying fark about politics as it has no bearing on life at grassroots level, regardless of who wears the crown.
