How many times in your lifetime have you heard that a business has the skill set to be a good and effective president?
For decades the GOP has been running businessmen as presidential candidates with the slogan that a successful businessman would be best for the country.
First let me say….It Is Bullshit!
I think the last GOP president that was a businessman proved just how much crap that promise is.
A business needs to turn a profit to remain alive…..the government cannot turn a profit when the very people that should know better spend their energy stopping the flow of revenue.
A lot of Americans think the country should be run like a business.
This is a problem on a few levels. Most obviously, a country isn’t a company. Businesses exist to turn a profit; countries do not, and competence in business rarely translates to competence in politics.
Treating the country like a business also encourages Americans to think of themselves as customers rather than citizens. Trump’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner spoke directly to this idea in a 2017 interview: “We should have excellence in government … The government should be run like a great company. Our hope is that we can achieve successes and efficiencies for our customers.”
How long must we suffer the BS of the GOP…..apparently for an eternity….for the GOP continues to lie and scrape out a position in a country that needs more from the government than Repubs are willing to work for…..
