Guide to choosing the next president

/ 04:01 AM July 02, 2021

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.
