I started a previous thread about a mulim being president that brought up a few issues that I thought would make an interesting discussion.
In this country we are suppose to have a seperation of church and state but if an elected person is muslim, christian, or an atheist the ideals and
morals of that person will directly influence that persons decisions so in essence there can truely be no seperation of church and state. You must
also apply this principal to an individuals personal economics. I hate to use this as an example because it has been discussed here so frequently, but
if a president has heavy ties to the militarys largest supplier as well as ties to the oil industry doesn't that create a conflict of interest.
A lot of our countries greatest men were ordinary people from all walks of life. Why is it now that you don't have a chance without millions of
dollars. I recently read a report on how this coming election could be a billion dollar election.
I know this is a republic( I hope you all do as well) But somehow the 99% of the population need to put an end to the 1% that are in control.
