The country desperately needs leaders who want to encourage and enrich all American citizens, not just those on the margins of society. We need a leader who understands that pain and misery do not just affect the disenfranchised and that ambition is best encouraged by rewarding effort and excellence.
The president especially has to encourage ambition, hard work and integrity -- not welfare, stagnation and corruption.
Hopefully, a future leader will not tolerate unreasonable and racist comments from unscrupulous minority leaders, but will task all spokespeople to act for the good of the nation, regardless of local political ambitions. Americans do not need more radical socialist baloney from incompetent misfits.
American citizens deserve government leaders who are willing and determined to maintain the integrity of the American dream. The president of the United States does not acquiesce or act subservient to Third World leaders as a misguided attempt to gain acceptance. The new leader will understand that bearing and behavior are the precursors of respect and dignity. He/she will realize that approval by insignificant Third World leaders is not paramount to our national interests.
America does not need to apologize for past acts that enabled other nations to overcome catastrophic disasters that were caused, in many instances, by their stupidity. Hopefully, our future leaders will be true, diehard Americans.
