ENTERTAINERS as POLITICIANS?

In a country whose media pays much attention to covering stories about the personal lives of entertainers such as Beyonce, Angelina Jolie, Leonardo DiCaprio, and many others, we wanted to take a moment to ask the question, SHOULD ENTERTAINERS BE ALLOWED TO HOLD A POLITICAL OFFICE?

Since America is a democratic republic nation, it would seem unfair to not allow entertainers the right to hold political offices as mayor, governor, or president. Let’s face it, it is much easier to get public recognition and support as a celebrity than as an average Jack or Jill American citizen. Nobody wants a nobody, right? However, how trustworthy are these entertainers?  After all, if they are well known for their abilities to PERFORM, how creditable are they for being the NEXT BIG THING?

What do Americans really want?

What do Americans really expect from our leaders?  

What laws or policies should be put into place in order to MAKE AMERICA’S LEADERS GREAT AGAIN? 

Let’s S.I.P!

  1. Here is a few facts on being eligible to run for office in America for the Office of President

    Age and Citizenship requirements – US Constitution, Article II, Section 1No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States.Term limit amendment –

     US Constitution, Amendment XXII, Section 1 – ratified February 27, 1951No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once.
     
    Now I really don,t have an issue with a celebrity running.I really don’t have a problem with anyone running for office. You can come from the lowest poverty area in America. If the person has  educated themself aand has worked hard and strive to make their life better, to me that shows determination conviction and drive. Now if the person meets the criteria and meet certain guidelines,meaning for myself I look for other things in a candidate besides the requirements to run for office. I look past that I want to see if the candidate or candidates have integrity,humility,loyalty, spiritualism and character and being able to communicate with other nations on political matters to better the welfare of our society to make Humanity a better place. Now the topic was do you think celebrity should hold public office, and in my opinion, yes I believe certain ones can hold public office not all but certain ones. Many may be qualified but only a few are chosen. Let’s take the picture on S.I.P. Ronald Reagan was an actor a very good actor but he also made an excellent president why did Reagan make an excellent president because of the company he kept his Council.  Reagan was a leader that listened to Council that’s what made him great. With his time in public office Reagan’s Council was the support and guidance that made his presidency. So if we have learned anything from this meaning.To be a great leader of a Nation you must have great support from your staff and be willing to take suggestions from Council.
     If there is something about a candidate that you do not like then maybe you should Step Up and run for office yourself.  Nothing will change unless you make an effort.
    Get more knowledge S.I.P embrace the a movement.

  2. Should entertainers be allowed to hold political offices? Yes, if they meet the government’s general requirements or standards. Our government is a democratic republic, so all should have an equal opportunity to pursue a position of leadership is if they so desire. Entertainers, like politicians, must have certain atrributes such as perserverance, charisma, and talent in order to be successful. Believe it or not, not everyone understands nor possesses the skills needed in order to get and keep their audience’s attention. That, I would say, is a talent. The most successful entertainers have accomplished their fame and fortunes by not only talent, but by pure determination. They also must be approachable in more than one social class in order to influence the majority. All of which are traits or skills needed in order to acquire a political office. Unfortunately, like politicians, entertainers should have the necessary education, skills, and political background needed in order to be taken serious as a ENTERTAINER turned POLITICIAN. They must be cautious in how they present themselves, as they are no longer responsible for their personal staff but the staff of their entire government, whether it be local or national. Entertainers should be leary of joining organizations or groups that may misrepresent the public’s best interest. After all, they must not only sympathize with the needs of their government but also show empathy. Who wants a leader that does NOT have the ability to show empathy. It seems almost too obvious that in order to be an true effective leader one must have some sort of humanitarian nature. Surprisingly, we only see the media focus on matters of state or city without discussing the not-for-profit ventures or projects a candidate has participated in long before discussing their desire to run for political office. Hmm? Well, in a nutshell, entertainers should be allowed to hold these positions but with proper care. No amount of fame or money can substitute good leadership.

  3. This is one of few subjects which I take very seriously, to the point where I am about 95% convinced that my mind cannot be changed. That may sound extreme, but I submit that history and indeed daily experience is on my side, lending credence and substance to my position. Nonetheless, said position remains very understandably controversial. It is a simple and easily understood position for those conversant with certain facts, but difficult for those who haven’t checked into non-mainstream views and breakdowns of our current system, to say nothing of the alternatives. All of the relevant factors and information which have brought me to the conclusion I’m about to relate would take far too long to express here; for whoever might be interested, I would recommend watching the following documentaries for a rudimentary understanding: Zeitgeist Addendum, Zeitgeist Moving Forward, Future by Design, and Paradise or Oblivion. Zeitgeist can be found on both Youtube and Netflix, while the other two are most quickly accessed through Youtube.

    So, my position in a nutshell is this:

    Politics is irrelevant.

    At least, politics as we have known and practiced it for most of our (known) history. The entire idea of political parties or one man/woman having “power” and making decisions for people is obsolete. Indeed, “obsolete” might be a better word than “irrelevant”, for it is certainly unwise not to pay attention to what is going on in the current political milieu. At the same time however, observing said milieu and how it has monumentally screwed up the world only reinforces my compulsion to reject the whole system, believing as I do that there are better ways of handling human affairs. Therefore, in a nutshell, it is very difficult for me to comment on entertainers’, sports figures,’ or anyone else’s “right” or propriety in participating in politics. I feel that it is the same as asking me whether or not someone is suitable for participating in a circus…

    If I were to force myself to pretend that I gave the charade any credence at all, the most generous things I could say would be the following: I would say that I don’t really care what “profession” any individual comes from as long as they have information pertinent to the fields of human endeavor in which they seek to influence policy. In other words, I wouldn’t care if Jim Carey wanted to run for office if in addition to his acting, he was also highly knowledgeable in general science, social science, cultural studies, technology trends, history, philosophy, psychology, and agriculture. Within those fields lay the only information really worth having when it comes to being a “legitimate” candidate for making policies which the rest of us would have to follow. Note that I said nothing about business or law -with lawyers currently making up a disproportionate amount of people in “government”. We all see how well that state of affairs has turned out. “Laws”, and hence lawyers, are only a byproduct of an inefficient system of social arrangement.

    In general, I would not be in favor of entertainment people being involved in politics. In general. But this is only because few of them seem to have any depth or layers, merely being one-dimensional, egotistical attention seekers. I would, however, be much more pleased if more scientists, astronomers, engineers, physicists, farmers, psychologists and philosophers got involved, people who had those skills as primary, and acting or sports as merely secondary.
