Being the boss does not equate to being president
America is great and will remain great if all Americans, regardless of race, religion or national origin, realize that we are in charge of our destiny as the greatest nation in the world. We the people are governed by the Congress which is made up of our peers and their main duty is to obey the Constitution of the United States as they create laws that are in the best interest of the people. All the people.
Please do not be offended, those of you who are reading this. I realize that the leading contender on the GOP side doesn’t appear to know how a democratic government works, but I know that all of you do.
If Donald Trump intends to manage our government as he does all of his many enterprises, he is unlikely to be effective. He may be a good manager of his business affairs, as has been proven over the years by his great wealth. But in that context, he is, after all, the “boss.” He says what he wants and it simply happens. Of course this is not the way our government works. Is Donald Trump even capable of the cooperation, collaboration, communication and compromise that will be required of him? His rhetoric suggests not.
On April 26, the residents of Charles County will go to the polls for the primary voting. At this time there are a lot of problems facing not only us but the entire world. As you make your decision for the next President of the United States, consider whether or not Donald Trump will be a leader who understands these problems and is willing to work with others to solve them.
