We have a problem

We do not screen out sociopaths Narcissists and authoritarians from
Positions of power.

You cannot trust the toxic people who cannot feel empathy,have no sense of ethics,no boundaries and no sense of shame when they abuse positions of power and people.

We need to screen for these problem personalities before they get a position of power or a seat in the government.

When we let these fuckers run as if they are not what they are things go bad and it keeps happening .Is it because we assume people running for office aren't narcissistic or sociopath or or authoritarian?.

1in 4 people have this disorder in varying levels. And they betray,their greedy,lying and abusive.

We are locked on a planet with a bunch of assholes.

Don't you want a person that's not toxic to run our country?


Don't put monsters like trump in power .If we keep playing with them as if they aren't what they are do expect them to fuck over America and the laws of the land and the people and not give a shit about corruption until they get caught

When they're caught then they are a whiney non victim acting as if they got victimized.

Truth is Some people must be screened out from positions of power.

2. Screen all candidates of both parties

Before they get on a debate stage.

Health records and taxes must be released.

Candidates must be screened and agree to follow rules.
Lies that can be factually proven will be a disqualification.
Questions asked must be answered.
Name calling and insult throwing are disqualifying.

Anyone can run, but both the RNC and the DNC should have strict rules about who gets debate time.

3. the Rep8bs aren't going to screen themselves out of existence

more's the pity. Then there's the 'Base' which shares those traits... do we disqualify them from voting?

I would think 'Free and Fair' elections, a 'Fair' media and the removal of excessive amounts of unused cash from cranky zillionaires would help.

4. Elections are basically popularity contests, so what can you expect?

Name recognition. Uninformed people picking a name they recognize. How do you fix an apathetic electorate who only care about the salacious shit they read about on social media?

Love to have Madison rewrite the federalist today.

8. This

It might not keep them honest, but at least they couldn't claim ignorance. Besides, a passing knowledge of the Constitution should be a baseline requirement.
