An Ideal State, as I Understand It.
Every person dreams to live in the ideal state. And we tried to create the best state for life.
Our state is a Presidential republic. The president is the head of state there and elected directly by the people.Every citizen has rights which can not be violated. In fact he has much power, he controls all the three branches of power.
The Constitution proclaims a presidential system of government which keeps both the states and the federal power from getting too much power. It means that the federal government is given certain powers, for example, to make peace or war.
The legislative branch of the federal government consists of Senate and the House of Representatives. In the Senate there are 200 senators. The House has 500 members. Congress makes laws.
The President and his Administration represent the executive branch of the federal governments. The Administration includes the Secretaries. President signs federal laws. The President can veto a bill unless Congress by a two-thirds vote shall overrule him. The President is chosen in nationwide elections every 4 years.The President can not be elected for more than three terms.
The judicial branch is made up of Federal District Courts, 13 Federal Courts and the Supreme Court. Federal judges are appointed by the President for life. Federal courts decide cases involving federal law, conflicts between citizens of different states.
The head of state should be a real personality. He\She should have a will to win and a wish to have power. He\She should use power not for his\her own needs but for improving the situation in the country.
A good politician should have an ability to risk and to love risking if he\she wants to win. He\She should be able to take non-traditional decisions and to give up some people from his\her team.
If a good politician understands that some people can not perform their functions he\she should change them and forget how hard it was. A politician , who can not change some members of the team when it is necessary will lose .
It is very important for a politician to have clever advisors but it is he/she who is responsible for the decisions. Though people often say that a politician who has clever advisors is not clever!
Political decisions may be ruthless for some people and good for the majority of the people . So , a good politician should be ready to take ruthless decisions .
A politician who follows one and the same strategic line and does not revise his/her ideas won't live a long life in politics . But again , people may say that he/she has no will to finish something!
No image-maker can help a person who is nothing. It is impossible to improve" nothing ."Image-makers and advisors can add only 15-20% to the image of a politician .
The power should be used by a politician not for power itself but for achievind definite aims.
