Conditions of Use
Some of the characteristic qualities I think a president should have are being generous and fair. A president should be as generous as possible to his people. He should make sure public schools, hospitals, or any other public place get their rightful share of money. How can hospitals give sick citizens medication or children be educated if the schools don’t have equipment? A president should be fair to all of the citizens, not concerning religion, race, wealth, skin color, or anything else. A president should treat everyone equally, and make sure everyone has the same rights.
A good president should be devoted to his work and innovative in his thinking. He should be devoted to his job because his job is being the leader of the country. If he isn’t devoted, wars would be going on all the time, the country would become poor, and everything would be chaotic. If the president is devoted to his work, the country would be at peace with its borders. He would find ways to make the country richer, and everything else would be in order. A positive thinking president should have innovative thinking for his country. For example, if I was the Lebanese president, my goal would be to repair old buildings that ruin views, and clean graffiti of off walls. Another good idea would be to make Lebanon a greener country by growing grass and trees in as many places as possible. A president should also have innovative thinking about his country being at peace with its borders.
A president should also let his citizens have freedom of speech, or even thinking what they want to think. He should accept and listen to their opinions. If he is to have disputes with anyone, he should try to make everyone pleased with the solution. If a president listens to other people’s opinions he can make the country, community, or anything else under his control better. Another thing that goes with freedom of speech is the acceptance of criticism. He should not jail whoever criticizes him. He should listen to what is displeasing them and consider changing it, making everyone happy.
One of the most important characteristic traits a president should have are respect and honesty. He should be honest and fulfill his promises to his country. For example, not this year or the year before, I have noticed that some student council representatives would make promises so unreasonable that they cannot be fulfilled. A president should not make unreasonable promises, and again I turn to student council for an example of a promise which is: “I promise to make recess longer.” A president should be respectful to his people so that they will respect him, and not regret voting for him. And last, a president should always feel with his people.
