if only america had noble purebred aristocrats to responsibly oversee the building of their big ****off walls for future generations
Ultimately, you don't need an established aristocracy to have decent, responsible people. You just need someone who is capable of looking beyond his own nose and understands the true point of being in a position of power. Lincoln, IIRC, said it best, and he was not an aristocrat. "By the people, for the people
." You don't need to have the "noblisse oblige" maxim bind your family for generations, either (though it does help), nor do you have to have to come from a family which essentially evolved into that mindset since the Middle Ages (though it also may help). You just need someone you trust and respect to tell you "with great power comes great responsibility" and make you remember it well (and yes, I think that Spiderman, with his appreciation for that maxim, would've made at least a decent president
America had such presidents, ones that understood the responsibility laying on them. In fact, Washington was the very first one, and he set a very good example which many others did follow. Trump either doesn't understand it or doesn't care, and that's my problem with him. He's a self-absorbed, greedy guy who has so much money that it stopped arousing him, so he thought he'll now try and grab political power, because he doesn't have all that much of that.
Also, it might surprise you, but the US has "dynasties" which have a history almost as rich (if usually not as long) as European noble families. I'm talking about Bushes, Clintons, Kennedys and so on. Sure, not everyone agrees with their policies, but you can't deny that every one of them was ultimately up to the task. Trump, I believe, is not up to the task of being the POTUS. Look at what he says, then look at what Clinton and Sanders are saying. For the former, you'll see he's either talking about himself, or throwing mud at his opponents. The latter two generally at least allude to actual issues plaguing the country, especially Sanders. While his opponents have some background in governing things, Trump is a businessman with seemingly no idea about running an organization which doesn't have gaining money for him as the only goal.
BTW, I just found that Trump now believes conspiracy theories as well:http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2016/jan/24/bernie-s/yes-donald-trump-really-did-tweet-climate-change-h/
Climate change a hoax? How about this: This winter temperatures in Poland dropped below zero for about two weeks
. In a country that used to get snow in november and have it stay into april at times. This is a consistent trend. I remember winters during my childhood, I see how they are now. You can argue about why
, but if you're arguing about whether
it's happening, you're an idiot, plain and simple. Not that I mind warm winters, but I do mind cracks who reject reality and act according to their own delusions.
