Presidents Aren't Leaders


    del.icio.us

While watching the various presidential candidates promote their positions, it seems like they want to "lead the country." They (most of them) have plans on how they're going to take care of our health, our money, and our energy needs. Is it even possible for a single person to be an expert in all of these things? No, of course not. Hillary Clinton, for example, doesn't know anything about medicine or energy. These subjects require experts like doctors and professors; people who dedicate their lives to these single subjects.

Presidents aren't leaders, they're administrators. It was never intended for the US government to be all-involved in our everyday lives. Their job is singular; protect individual liberties! When seen from that perspective, we can see that their job is to help oversee government operations as head of the government, not head of the country.

This reminds me of this article I read a while back, posted in the homepage link. While his position is a little extreme, if not meant in humor, the argument is the same basically.
