Presidential Credentials
* * *
[   as they should be to renew faith in our nation
 and restore confidence  in our governance
by loyal public servants ]

Why do we believe W. Mitt Romney is the best suited, if not the only one capable of leading our nation out of these troubling economic times where we now face a deeper recession, if not a depression, and loss of respect in the eyes of the world community?

We believe his esteemed personal virtues and successful business track record are the kind of personal qualifications and talents a good leader must have without regard to their blind political party loyalty and personal ideological beliefs.

We believe that the most important principle necessary to the continued success and survival of any form of governance by democracy is that of The E Pluribus Unum Common Good that should be invoked based upon the Vox Populi and will of We the People, for the best interests of all America and for all Americans, first and foremost.

We believe intelligence suggests there are two sets of credentials or eligibility qualifications for the position of the United States Presidency, one is Legal and one is Practical.

The U.S. Constitution establishes The Legal and good judgment establishes The Practical criterion of qualifications a Presidential contender should hold.

The Legal Qualifications

Article I, Section 1, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution states the legal qualifications one must possess and hold to be eligible to serve as U.S. President.

Article I
Section One

"Clause 5: No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States."

In summary, circa 2012, to be legally eligible to hold the office of United States President one must be:

  1. Thirty-five years of age; and
  2. A natural born U.S. Citizen; and
  3. A resident of the U.S. for fourteen years.
The Practical Qualifications
Intelligence and good judgment suggest that the practical qualifications and credentials one must possess and hold to be a good choice to serve successfully as United States President representing all of the populous known as We the People of this great Union of Fifty United States of America, also known as an elected representative Republic form of governance by democracy, are as follows:
  • Personal Credentials
The best candidates for President should be chosen from among The Best We Have To Offer out of all Three Hundred Million lawful U.S. citizens.

Candidates should always be nominated from among the most honest, most decent, most moral, most ethical, most talented, most successful, most honorable, most truthful, most trustworthy, best educated and of the highest degree of unquestionable integrity humanly possible to be found. Without a focus on or regard for these virtues and talents self-serving, self-dealing corruption is inevitable.

  • Political Credentials

Under our American political party system the nominees and the President should be chosen by focusing first on personal qualifications, a proven successful social and career life track record, and the personal virtues of even temperament, truthfulness, trustworthiness, and integrity, rather than political party loyalty and political ideological beliefs alone.

Political career pursuits were never intended by our forefathers who created and set up the government we have in America. Time has also proven that the experience of career political pursuits have not always nor often proven to be successful criterion for the best public servants and public service decision-making.

Our political system and our elective public service, dominated and ruled selfishly by self- centered, self-serving and now often corrupt senior tenured career political ideologues has created an evil and mean-spirited atmosphere in Washington, in government and in our political party circles over the last several decades. The partisan political bickering in America, our nation's capital, and in the public square of Main Street USA has become so vicious, vindictive, vile, virulent, vitriolic, venomous and vomit-generating as to disgrace all public service and make our government completely ineffective, inefficient and dysfunctional for the E Pluribus Unum Common Good of all.

We must therefore now reorder our nation's priorities to include first and foremost a national goal of adopting and effectively enforcing term limits and an end to the musical chairs game of career politicos used to escape and evade this worthy objective of good governance.

If our nation is to be successfully governed and respected for the E Pluribus Unum Common Good of all, our leadership must be respected and successful in their own right, in the eyes of all our fellow countryman, and in the eyes of the world!

Although common sense is no longer so common in American political circles and even though there is no such thing as conventional wisdom in American thought since the last such convention was adjourned ""Sine Die" - I am counting on the sage wisdom and humor of our old ally, "ancestra" English forefather and statesman, Sir Winston Churchill being accurate and now hopefully having gone full circle too. I reference Sir Winston's humorous side-door compliment when he said with a smirky smile on his face:

"America can always be counted on to do the right thing, after exhausting all of the alternative options of course!"
