My apologies Keith.

No worries, you are so pleasant about it and refrain from campaigning in the
wrong place.  I don't necessarily disagree with John either on some things.
I definitely disagree on the value of the US system: in my view it's great.
It prevents totalitarianism.

Ja I am told this, but in my view POTUS isn't a leader, and I don't suppose
that that office should be a leader.  POTUS is a politician.  

An example of a leader would be people like Sal Khan, Elon Musk, Bill Gates,
Peter Thiel, those kinda guys.  They had a vision, they carried it out, they
led others to do great things, cool stuff happened.  None of these guys are
politicians, they are leaders.
