Americans, I need help because I don't understand how you allow such inexperienced people in politics go ahead and run for the lead in their party?
I wondered this back when Ronald Reagan ran for president, and again when Arnold Schwarzenegger ran for state governor. If someone is famous, are they just automatically given the "O. K." to run for office? There are so many intelligent people out there that could give them a run for their money, but because of fame, are Americans just allowing this more simply for celebrities? I could go on.. Jesse Ventura, Sonny Bono.. people who just had a following, but not for political reasons!
Now we have Donald Trump who is just so obviously running for nothing less than a marketing scheme, because I have to give him credit - as someone in marketing, to put one's self out there the way he does and as often as he does can sell a product, which is his brand Trump. But I don't think he really wants to be president. I think he wants to go down in Wikipedia as the guy who said he'd do it, and did it. He's been insulting, uncouth, unfair, and uneducated - and this is just *after* he's been a declared candidate!
How do Americans allow this? What sort of criteria do people need to have? Do you just fill out a form to say you want to run and then go with it? Is there a fee? Do you need a certain amount of signatures? I mean it sounds about as easy as Pedro Sanchez from Napoleon Dynamite running for president. As long as you have a cool moustache and some keychains, you're in.

They are pre-selected by the real power brokers long in advance in a calculated way to either split the vote, or to possibly win. In either case they are only selected if they can be controlled. Nothing more, nothing less. It is all a master level con for public consumption, and as a distraction from what they are doing behind the scenes, beyond the scripting of the puppets. Politics is simply a big scam for the dumbed down masses, and is organized crime at a massive/worldwide scale. The White House is largely ceremonial. What it all comes down to is 13 families running the show, for the most part, internationally, in support of themselves, their interests (banking and central banks), and here in the US that means the Bush/Prescotts, Clintons, and Rockefellers. They own and control everything required to pull it all off. Including the CIA, NSA, FBI, Federal Reserve, Wall Street, and more. No one, and I mean NO ONE gets into power here without their pre-approval and control being in place from the get-go.0
