Seriously, since when does an education mean you’re bad? I know the republicans go there, especially those with Harvard degrees, but denigrating people for going to college is hardly a progressive platform. Or is it only when women do it?
In 1969, you’re damn right we couldn’t trust “elite educated people”. The “best and brightest” brought us the War on Vietnam and a poisoned world. They’ve had 50 years of rule and look where we are now.
They’ve had their turn. Time for change.
Wow. I guess it’s time to take a close look at high school dropouts for the best leaders. Maybe we can pass a law that says that no educated people can run for office. Make them work in the fields like Pol Pot did. That’ll show them.
I’d love to see a working-class person become President.
It would sure be a refreshing change from the string of lawyers who have messed so much up.
“Messed up?” You are one in a sea of over 150 million voters and by your or ANYONE’S standards, “so much” will always end up “messed up.” It’s called the process of developing public policy, otherwise called LAWS. And guess what, no matter who does it, it will always be a messy, extremely difficult process. And just because you might feel a kinship with someone that mows lawns for a living than someone with a law degree, that doesn’t equate to someone that should be elected to the most difficult job in the world. Change just for the SAKE of change is brainless and a sentiment that has given us the current white nationalist, crime family rule.
Now, if a “working class” person proved themselves with a successful career in government service, preferably elected office, they might make a fine presidential candidate.
