Even Drivers Need a License

I wonder if all incombents should be required to pass a sanity test.  It would be in the best interest of everyone–Republican and Democrat alike.

Have you read Bob Woodwad’s book  Fear: Trump in the White House?  Just the following tiny passage gives pause:

“There’s never been a guy win a Republican primary that’s not pro-life,”  Bossie said. “And unfortunately, you’re very pro-choice.”

“What does that mean?”

“You have a record of giving to the pro-choice candidates. You’ve made statements. You’ve got to be pro-life, against abortion.”

“I’m against abortion.” Trump said. “I’m pro-life.”

“Well, you’ve got a track record.”

“That can be fixed,” Trump said. “You just tell me how to fix that.  I’m–what do you call it? Pro-life.  I’m pro-life, I’m telling you.”

What kind of license to rule might be devised?

Perhaps a national  rating by he FACT folks on the qualities all sane individuals must possess.  Surely everyone would agree on the qualities, wouldn’t they?  The Republicans can’t really like that their man stole state secrets when he left the White House!?

Would not everyone agree that elected leaders and guardians of our United States should rate outstandingly on Honesty, Knowledge, Level-Headedness, Respect for the Law, Anger Control, Rationality…what else?  Empathy would be nice, as well as  Decency  and maybe views on Climate Change?  What traits would conservatives reject?  Maybe  respect for the humanity of all, but you see I’ve left that out, although that would cover respect for women.  I’ve also side-stepped use of the DSM-V which may be more contentious.
