RE: Proud
I am SO proud that my country's leader is not a serial sex offender, a crooked business man, a racist, a misogynist, and or is named Trump. Happy, happy, happy!!!!!

Let's face it people, politicians have only one true agenda and that is to get themselves more money via their political position. Doesn't matter what country we are referring to, the basic motivation to be Herr Leader is all the same - power and money.

to be fair, we should keep in mind that to succeed in politics you do need to have a strong psychopathic streak. Emotionally healthy people just wouldn't bother or would be too 'nice' to climb that slippery slope. in this sense, we as human societies bear considerable responsibility for those we get.

Yes, to be fair, definitely psychopathic talents are a must (LOL)

Interesting Nats. I watched a short documentary on psychopaths and one of the jobs listed for them was politicians. I used to be friends with a woman whose husband was a P. Definitely that.

RE: Proud
it is interesting. psychopathic traits are very useful for a number of societal roles that require the person to be analytical and dispassionate while valuing power and control (e.g. politics, surgery, CEOs).

I'm not proud (to be an American).

I think some politicians like dump want power and money, but we've had others that truly seem like they want change for the better, like Obama. We all miss him terribly.

Also, we are jealous that you are Canadian. You are lucky.

Yes for sure. Not everyone is psychopathic. My friend wanted to be a politician. He was blocked by psychopaths but he is a wonderful man. He would be the type that refuses to take a fallfor people like Trump.
