WARNING: This is satire. However, it would be nice.

Ever wonder why people like Obama run for office and even get elected? Because half of the population knows NOTHING about the current political situation, economics, or anything of that nature. I propose a Governmental law saying people cannot run or vote without these qualifications:

Can only vote if:

1. You know the laws of supply and demand.
2. You read the Constitution
3. You know what each candidate stands for on each issue.
4. You took Macroeconomics.
5. You understand that no politician is the "magic bullet".
6. You actually know who the fvcking candidate's names are in advance.

Can only run if:

1. You get As in at least 6 economics classes.
2. You ACTUALLY provide transparency.
3. You aren't a bunch of hot air.
4. You read the constitution at least 10 times and get a 100 on a test on it.
5. You provide less than $5 million in personal campaign contributions.
6. You actually know how the fvcking political system works.

We need to pass a law preventing people from running and voting without these qualifications!

P.S. Notice how Obama dosen't fit any of the running qualifications. Johnson 2012!

I doubt Gary Johnson would pass 1. His degree is in Political Science, and he doesn't seem to know very much about economics. I'd be surprised if he took 6 economics classes in college, much less aced all of them.
Should we subsidize education?

I'd rather have a leader who concedes lack of knowledge and listens to experts on all issues than one who has his own to apply.

I'd rather have the speaker of Parliament in charge of governance than anyone else, in all honesty.

Further, the limitations you give are essentially "You must know X,Y and Z" for facts that the answers depend on actual belief. Let's go through the silliness of your points. Without using the internet to check elsewhere, how many of these questions can you answer:

You know what each candidate stands for on each issue

What is Jill Stein's position on foreign relations with Russia?
What is Gary Johnson's policy regarding American troops deployed in Eastern Europe?
What is Mitt Romney's position on abortion (notice how this changes depending on the wind blowing, and as such any question on this issue instantly means you failed)

Just picking a few. Of course, I'm now ignoring the cost, and still the fact that the majority of economic grads are left-wing, but that's more of an aside.
Give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day. Teach him how to be Gay, he'll positively influence the GDP.

I don't know. I discounted Stein from my vote when I discovered she was running under the Green Party.

I wonder...
What is Mitt Romney's position on abortion (notice how this changes depending on the wind blowing, and as such any question on this issue instantly means you failed)


I think you pointed out run point 8: No flip-flopping. ESPECIALLY no Romney-style flip-flopping.

Another good point, still, I prefer my presidents to have economic knowledge before they craft economic policy.

2. You read the Constitution

Read it or know it? theres a HUGE difference between the two

3. You know what each candidate stands for on each issue.

Given the huge number of issues and how many people are running this would probably f*ck over 99% of people

4. You took Macroeconomics.

Took it or passed it? Also discriminates against immigrants

5. You understand that no politician is the "magic bullet".

That completely discriminates against Ron Paul fans!

6. You actually know who the fvcking candidate's names are in advance.

This one I do agree with

Does this refer to releasing Tax returns?

I advocate consensus politics, but adversary politics still is a major chunk of the political community. I don't know how much compromise one could handle.

lol.

I wonder...

It's actually quite weird tbh. The point is, though, these are all possible stances that one can be tested on. Try taking the UK citizenship test that was going to be initiated under the tories. I love it.

"Which one of these statements are correct:

Education at state schools in the UK is free and this includes the cost of school uniform etc.

Education at state schools in the UK is free but not school uniform and sportswear"

I want to kick the writer of the question out of the country.

But anyway, take a local citizenship test, and you'd be surprised how badly one does.

http://www.ukcitizenshiptest.co.uk...

I got ten out of twentyfour. I got the questions on the EU all right though! :P

What is Mitt Romney's position on abortion (notice how this changes depending on the wind blowing, and as such any question on this issue instantly means you failed)


I think you pointed out run point 8: No flip-flopping. ESPECIALLY no Romney-style flip-flopping.

True. But flip-flops could be genuine changes of opinion. It's a bit awkward to say "no contradictions".

Just picking a few. Of course, I'm now ignoring the cost, and still the fact that the majority of economic grads are left-wing, but that's more of an aside.
Another good point, still, I prefer my presidents to have economic knowledge before they craft economic policy.

I'd prefer my PM to not craft economic policy at all, and let the Chancellor of the exchequer do that.

At least they know.

Crap. Should have put read and know

I know. Exactly. People need to know more.

Crap again. Passed. And how does this discriminate? It's not like California is offering free classes to immigrants...

How about all three? Most emphasis on the latter though.

Whats the ratio of stupid ones to true ones?

There's at least 66.

Wouldnt it be better if this was a requirement to head up the FED or to hold the office of OMB rather then the Presidency?

This is correct, yes, but not always. I don't think money should EVER turn the tide of an election.
