Has it ever dawned on the editors that the attitudes of the 70 million projected non-voters may be very consistent with the reality that the concept of voting and electing representatives is basically dishonest and fraudulent.

He then claims to represent the people who voted against him and even those who wisely chose not to participate in such criminal activity.

Pick a leader who will make their citizens proud. One who will stir the hearts of the people, so that the sons and daughters of a given nation strive to emulate their leader’s greatness.

And in these times, a great leader must be extremely brave. Their leadership must be steered only by their conscience, not a bribe.
