If Dave Ramsey was president he could help clean up America's debt mess utilizing the debt snowball with his gazelle-like intensity.

Con

Yes, I bet Dave Ramsey could reduce America's debt, but that would be all that he could do. Considering, he has no experience of how to run a country, or what to even do when crisis strikes. Even though, he went to the University of Tennessee, that gives him no fundaments of politics. It's like saying Oprah should run for president. She can motivate and negotiate, but she knows little to none about politics.

Dave Ramsey is a wise man and has consulted with many people, so he has the life experience needed to be president. He could easily deal with situations such as national crises.

Con

You may think he would be an amazing president, but you have no proof. You just have an idea of what you want to happen, but probably wouldn't. Being wise does not mean you should be president.

First of all, the entire politcal system is based solely on people's opinion of who they want to be president. It's called a democracy and it's how the country works with its voting system.
Mags2

Con

Yes, the political system is based off a democracy and people's opinion, but people's opinion isn't always your opinion. Honestly, there is no political background of him in politics. He would damage America for the worst. Being good with debt and such doesn't mean you are qualified to be president. This is an idea, and now it is time to face reality.
