What I want is for any candidate to have to have live a year on Welfare with matching house and neighborhood, a year as a base wage earner, a year on my income with no medical insurance with one kid in college. Then live one week as a parapalegic(sp) with a job, one week in his car-family included. 3 months as an Apalachian coal miner. 3 months as a stocker at Wal-Mart. 3 months as a lumber jack. One growing season as a wheat farmer. 3 months as a factory line worker. 3 weeks as a teacher in 1st grade (25 students) with no assistant. 3 weeks as a high school teacher right before achievement tests in a rough and tumble school. Oh, yeah, add to that 2 days on the slaughter house floor.
I would respect this experience/training more than any military service. I don't think either one of these little rich boys could hack it. Military service doesn't even begin to teach the hardship the average person goes through. Maybe, just maybe this would increase their understanding of whom they are so desperately trying to lead/rule.
