    Smart World Leaders

    What do you people think would happen if the world had intelligent leaders? Seriously, Bush=moron, Sharon=idiot, anyone else other than Blair=probably just as dumb. Anyone here how Nixon wanted to use nukes in Vietnam?? By the way, I'm an American so don't say I am pro-whatever.


    P.S. The difference between a moron and an idiot is the competence level. An idiot has the mental capacity of a 3 or 4 year old, and a moron has a mental capacity of a 12 year old. There is your stupid fact of the day.

    I gotta admit, it feels GREAT!! I feel bad for older people who know more than I do. They must be really dumbfounded by some of these people.

    To paraphrase an old Groucho Marx line....... I wouldn't want to be led by anyone who wanted to be my leader.

    Anybody who actually wants to be a politician just has to be so self-centred & egotistical that I simply don't see how they could be interested in me!

    I said everyone but Blair. I think he's actually pretty bright. He doesn't just basically bomb the crap out of Iraq, unlike a certain current US president.

    A certain current US president cant even eat pretzels right (i'm sure everyones heard of that one)... Give the guy a break. You can only expect so much out of a monkey.

    >>I wouldn't want to be led by anyone who wanted to be my leader.

    That about sums it up.

    OK then, I don't want to be a leader, choose me!

    How else are we going to have political leaders, by force? Are we going to MAKE someone lead us, someone who does not want to do it?

    - I do agree with the post though...
    This is my signature. Remind me to change it.

    I'm sure that most politicians get into it as they feel they can help / make a difference.

    Self interest gets in the politicians way. Power corrupts. They learn the system is slow to change and real change is hard.
    Then they learn that no choice is the right one, it is a matter of selecting the least wrong one.
    Then the big companies lobbyists turn up and 'bribe' them with perks / campaign donations.
    Then choices are made on what will get the most votes or loose the least. Spin doctoring appears.
    They are helped by the media, as these big companies do not want you to find out that they own half the country and pay less tax than you. They become members of the elite and want the staus quo to continue.

    Ours lie openly. "There will never ever be a GST." , "kids were thrown overboard." They quote reports containing what they have said, to prove what they have said is correct. You know you need a new prime minister when the New York Times gets his name wrong.

    They get away with it because most people are to lazy / self obsessed to try to change it.

    Those that are not to lazy become politicans full of ideas to change society and the cycle continues.
