I understand your point. I didn't vote for Trump in 2016 because I thought he was an expert on those things.
I voted against Hillary. And knowing about those things doesn't guarantee a president will excel at them.
But not knowing about any of them, and being an immoral con man, ensures you a president won't excel at them.

But could Bernie have beaten Trump? Biden had more appeal within the party and cross party.
I think Bernie could have won in 2016 had he won the primary. Unfortunately, young voters in the south didn't show up.

2020, the piece of gum off the bottom of my shoe would have beaten Trump. Very few people I know voted FOR Biden. 80 million definitely voted against Trump.

Then you're ensuring that only a politician can ever be president.
Is that bad? Shouldn't someone learn at a lower level and increase that responsibility and knowledge?

As in the surgeon analogy, I wouldn't let an intern do my surgery either, theirs a couple more steps up the rung before I'm letting anyone do my surgery, even though they're a doctor.

Would you be ok with AOC becoming president tomorrow? I wouldn't, even if I agree with most of her policies. Honestly, I think she needs more experience. Why did Trump need none?

I think Trump would have beaten Bernie. Biden had more cross party support and from independents. Bernie wouldn't have pulled from the republican moderates like Biden did. He is too liberal for that.

It's sad that you think Bernie is too liberal. Reagan did a good job brainwashing a generation.

I'm tired of career politicians who are beholding to their parties ideals. We need an independent who would just do what's good for the country without worrying about party support. Granted it would be more difficult to get legislation passed but if that person was a moderate it would be possible and good for the country.

We need term limits to get rid of career politicians.

Exactly. Trump has never served the people in any capacity

There are master classes on this shit. Reagan really did convince people that the government isn’t supposed to do shit for them
I did not vote for Reagen but he does get credit for getting the hostages released in Iraq and getting the Berlin wall torn down.

That person was never going to be Trump.

The key to getting knowledgeable and unbeholden politicians is ranked voting and campaign finance reform, not having inexperienced and unknoledgeable people to run the country.
