Government administrations form the basic control
levers of each individual branch (i.e. Bush Administration oversees Executive Branch).
Equally since each of the administrations holds the check and balance on the other there exists a need for each to
have impartiality. Naturally in the US government system that isn’t always
the case, notably at times conservatives have rein and vice versa, and in those times there always remains an ever-present
threat of tipping the scale, which the people of the US have a responsibility to monitor.
Election(s) uphold the people’s beliefs,
or at least that is the intention of a democracy, and through elections the officials are given the responsibility to administrate
a government that stands for the platform elected into office. Often the
error tends to be on the first word of the term that gets misinterpreted. Never
in history has there just been one man that is the King of the US government, to have such would be impossible to be properly
informed, and make all decisions in essence out of ignorance. However, due to
the administration being the beast which levels the decisions there is a innate need for the people electing the head official,
who in turn appoints an huge number of officials, to trust this public face to appoint appropriate individuals to these elevated
Though the President may not appoint all these
people based on his / her personal opinions there certainly can be an impact. Note
that each of these appointees pull down a salary paid for by the citizen of the US who voted the administration into office. Thus there is even greater need to know PRIOR to election who the administration intends
to nominate to office, which is why the Vice President is always made public ASAP.
In the last presidential election there was much
confusion over the appropriateness of the platforms of both nominees. Indeed
both sounded and even looked very similar; hence the sayings “choose the lesser of two evils”. Though these men are only human there is a ultimate requirement for honesty in any leadership position,
and the most difficult part of this super human honesty is the release of all personal information to back up that honesty. There are no secrets when a citizen intends to be a contender for the highest-ranking
position in the most powerful country in the world. We the people can settle
for no less than every fact, and if Rock Stars can sacrifice their personal life for that fame then the most powerful citizen
in the world must be willing to place on the alter his personal life. THERE IS
A COST FOR FAME.
Every military value applies: duty, selfless service, honor, respect, All of these apply to any applicant for President
due to the nature of the military might at our leaders disposal. Commander and
Chief wield all the power of a 6 star general, and have equally the appropriate number of advisors to justify such. Only this single leader can make the decision to insert the military into combat with no legislative approval,
and can equally activate the nuclear forces held within the US. To be President
there is a quid pro quo that this ultimate responsibility will not be abused, but rather respected. Our President has the power to protect and ultimately provide the greatest possible future to the citizens
of the United States.
NOTE: Trying to change no one's personal opinions or beliefs. Not saying my views are the 100% correct for anyone
except me. Got a opinion state it in any way you choose; is the citizen's responsibility to question the government.
