> just wondering,how many of you think that future presidents should be stripped of some of their powers. i myself think that the president shouldn't be able to pardon anyone at all and to tell you the truth i don't think they should be commander and chief of the armed forces either.they should give that to a military officer.>>

I think the best thing would be for the President to have once been a military officer as opposed to always being a smarmy politician (they're all smarmy).

I think if you're going to lead the military into a war you need to have some war experience.

The usual counter-argument to this is if you're in charge of the country's economy you need some experience starting, or at least running, a business. One can, of course, also argue that if you're in charge of the health system of a country you should have served time as a doctor, if you're in charge of the education system of a country you should have served time as a teacher, if you're passing legislation you should have served time as a lawyer... I'm sure everyone else can come up with more examples.

Logically, you'd prefer a military dictatorship to a democracy.
