This doesn't actually sound that great to me. Unlike the people who will blindly support someone just because of this persuasive sneaky approach, I
First of all, he's not actually putting forward a working plan, he's just adopting the same methods of the other politicians by saying things like,
and I quote "We need a chance, we need a new idea, we need a new foundation, and we need action.
" This sounds great and all but it's
incredibly vague and could be twisted into anything. It's not a plan, it's a psychological trick to win support illegitimately.
The ground on which this cities issues and problems lay upon must be tore up and restructured, it needs to be constructed slowly and carefully;
measured by the rule and the square.
What? Isn't that what they wanted to do after Katrina? Bulldoze everything and rebuild N.O. into a "new city"? The people there were trying to get
the law to protect them from the government coming in to bulldoze over 10,000 homes in the 9th Ward and 'steal their land' according to a quick
Google search. Sure you could say he is just being metaphorical but is he? This guy is a psychology major at a Roman Catholic "liberal arts"

him? No thanks. I prefer candidates that have strong positions and outlined plans to solve problems and who can also come up with their own original
ideas without having to rely entirely on quotes.
He's still in school according to this stuff? And you want to put this naive kid in control of a city of how many people so he can 'rebuild'
He didn't even major in political science, civics, history, or anything important to good governance, he picked Psychology! Has he been sitting in on
city council meetings every month? Does he even have a clue how the city works? Does he know the budget concerns? What about the water supply and
power grid infrastructure issues? How would he handle the law enforcement agencies?
I don't like the sounds of any of this at all.
