No question in my mind: any presidential candidate from now on must undergo a battery of psyc. tests

before they can be put on the ballot. They can figure out how to establish an impartial panel to administer these test but this must be done. Right now we are being held hostage by a complete nutcase. It is only by the grace of some almighty being that we are not at war and by saying that I may have spoken too soon.

1. Why put such an onus on others? tRump is the problem, and he is unique.

I expect the Rs to spend time and energy trying to restrict President Biden as a reaction to their enabling that POS tRump to get away with murder.

Should Obama have had to face such a panel? Bill Clinton? Hillary?

2. He is not unique. There is an entire Republican Party and

about 30% of the voters who are stark raving mad. The next republican candidate will come from that sick pool. And I don't think that Obama or either of the Clintons would have objected to a fair test.

11. And what is

a "fair" test?

Your idea sounds fine but is ridiculous.

3. No one is impartial

DO you know anyone who is impartial to Trump?

Who selects the panel? Who selects the selectors? Who selects the selectors who selects the panel? You get the idea

Having an impartial panel who selects qualified candidates would be wonderful. But so would flying cars.

5. And there should be some requirement for

some previous background in an elected or appointed public office for some kind so the candidate at least has a vague idea of how government works. Something like you can't be a president unless you've previously been a congressman, or governor, or mayor of a major city, a district judge, etc. etc. No more real estate con men.

8. No, this would just be used against us...voters need to be smarter. Trump is a

self inflicted wound...but her emails and Stein kind of voters, many who call themselves progressive caused this.

9. No battery of tests necessary, just don't look the other way when someone shows who they are.

The media, and many other people, were trying so hard to have him fit into the role of a politician - although with personal quirks - that the obvious toxic faults of his psyche were ignored.
