Virtuous Leaders

It’s good to see that people from all parties are upset about recent events.  Now my question is this:  when are we going to realize that a person’s character has everything to do with how good of a ruler they will be in office?  Even if you think a politician’s economic policies are better in an election in which the economy seems to be the most important thing, you can’t elect a crook and expect him to rule for the common good.

I suggest adding a box next to every name on every ballot called the “vote of no confidence” box.  It wouldn’t effect the election results in any way, but  it would ensure that when a politician gets elected merely because people hate the other guy more, the politician will be reminded in the course of his great victory how many people hate him.  It probably wouldn’t be productive in any way, but it would sure make voting a lot more fun and make me feel a bit less dirty after casting my ballot.
