4 thoughts on “Trump or Clinton?”
Here’s my thoughts related to critical thinking and the two candidates
For Donald Trump I would give him high marks on ability to be “critical”
For Hillary Clinton, I would give her a high marks on the ability to execute “thinking”
I am from Canada and the election is not a big deal for me, although our news media is paying way too much attention to it.
Neither of your candidates is really any good. Clinton is so corrupt. The fact she has so much support says more about the American public. Why does a criminal have so much support? I do not believe she has critical thinking skills that a leader requires.
Trump, well he has built a business. A big one, and he keeps going and doing. He says he wants to scrap NAFTA. Perhaps not such a bad idea. He is a good negotiator, so maybe it could be rewritten to eliminate the secrecy. I believe his critical thinking is better than Clinton’s. If I were an American I would vote Trump.
Neither candidate tickles my funny bone and I suppose both can be great critical thinkers, but I suspect what they focus their critical thinking on, are two completely different animals. People who run red lights, drive intoxicated, or avoid taking responsibility for any number of their actions anywhere in life keep getting away with it because no one is around to call them out on their behavior.
Candidates need to have some real skin in the game. We need to devise a system whereby after a reasonable time passes and an elected candidate is shown to not be following through on their promises, they have to lose something very valuable to them… like maybe their first born.
Once you say you can fix things and we trust you enough to elect you, if you don’t produce you lose. If a candidate is so sure that they have the solutions then they shouldn’t be afraid to take a risk.
God help us one and all… or not.
Probably ‘none of the above’. However, since I do teach Leadership I do know that ‘TRUST’ is the Foundation on which all leadership is built. I can tell you without any reservation whatsoever – Bill Clintons’ wife has absolutely ZERO credibility.
