We are proletarians; we are the people who are unaware of the facts. People always make uninformed decisions because of the political adrenaline pumping through their veins. Some are adamant in supporting a candidate just because of their inflated egos and some are apolitical. Whatever the reasons are, we must be thorough and we must think of the future generations that are depending on us.
Weed out the exaggerators
All politicians lie. No one is a saint. Our responsibility is to weed out the exaggerators, the ones who are trying to show us the dreams of a fantasy land but are not even capable of fixing up the slums. Look at your candidate’s history. Look at what he’s done for the people in the past.
The media endorses some of these candidates and tries to mislead the masses but you have to evaluate the candidate yourself and not believe everything that is on the television.
- Presidents are not magicians
Presidents are not handed off a magic wand when they come into power. They have to work to establish a prosperous nation. They have to work hard to make changes that will affect the lives of the people positively.
If a candidate promises to make drastic changes but isn’t telling you how he will achieve these changes, then he is most probably just blowing hot air. If he has a plan, he will share it.
- A president should be adept in many things
Presidents are not made when they are elected, they are trained in many disciplines such as leadership, management, policy making, taking drastic decisions prior to the selection. You can’t just elect a candidate who doesn’t possess any of these skills. Make sure that your candidate has a resume that impresses you.
- The president must be revered globally
A president that is not respected in the global community is a great threat to the foreign policy. Isolation of a country can wreak havoc. We all need allies to fight off terrorism, for trade and many other economic, social and political benefits. Make sure that the candidate that you are supporting is revered on a global scale.
