Guide to choosing the next president
With all the problems besetting our country, here are the attributes I wish to see in the next president.
A president who fears God and knows that God is God;
A president who treats everyone with respect and dignity;
A president who leads by good example in word and in deed;
A president who preserves, protects, and defends the Constitution;
A president who wages war against poverty and corruption in government;
A president who ensures that every citizen has the right to life;
A president who guarantees that all would have equal access to health care and free education for the youth;
A president who prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity;
A president who promises that the country will be COVID-19 free by 2022;
A president who will not seek reelection.
Simply put, what we need is a president who is God-fearing and has compassion and empathy for the people.
