View Full Version : Why People Don’t Want Real Leaders
This is off-topic for this site (political). But a very interesting discussion. He speaks of why presidents from the past would never make it in today's world.
Why People Don’t Want Real Leaders (http://www.thechurchofnopeople.com/2011/06/why-people-dont-want-real-leaders/)
We’d probably never elect Teddy, or anyone like him, President today. We’d hate his guts.
Here’s four reasons why we’d hate one of our greatest Presidents if he were alive today… Do you think any of the past presidents would survive our political climate and the media today? (Am i in trouble for starting a political discussion?)

Probably not, and yeah, sort of.
An excerpt from the description of the Blogspot:
"While religion, politics and conspiracy theories are occasionally health-related, their inflammatory nature makes them inappropriate for this site."
Katee, what you've posted is not only thought-provoking, it's done tongue-in-cheek. It takes gymnastics and talent to present a strong opinion in such an amusing way that no one is offended.
That said, I'd prefer not to pursue this because I can see it going in unpleasant directions. We have conservatives and liberals among our members and I want no one's ox being gored when we start tossing the Rs and Ds around (or the Cs and Ls), which will inevitably happen. As long as we are confined to health, we may be as flippant or insulting as we please because we know it's all in good fun. And that's how it should stay.
Thanks for understanding — oh, and I'm glad I read that article. I will never hear Teddy Roosevelt's name again without thinking of Bigfoot!

I will not comment other than to say I'm glad I read this :)

It was a good read:).
For better or worse I Face Booked it. I think it's a thought provoking article and I don't think it matters if you are an R or a D. Thanks for posting Katee.
Well, i ask for forgiveness. It is a blog i read, largely a religious one. I don't always relate to what he says, but this one was so well written that i wanted to share it. Guess FB would have been a better place.

Thanks for sharing, Katee, I did enjoy the read. There's no need to ask forgiveness; I just did not want to set a precedent.
