    Here are the facts about the three leading candidates:

    Candidate A: Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologists. He's had two mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day.

    Candidate B: He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in college and drinks a quart of whisky every evening.

    Candidate C: He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't smoke, drinks an occasional beer and hasn't had any extramarital affairs.

    Which do you pick?

    Definitely B all the way.

    When i observed A i realized that the way A processes their logic is faulty... hence the astrologist's.

    When I saw C i realized it was someone who clearly hasn't truly lived and must be under very little stress. Typical white collar.

    While B sounds like more of a wild card. Being kicked out of office isn't always a bad thing, it could possibly mean that you're pushing the envelope. Sleeping until noon could just be a sign of staying up late to get things done... i do similar things for school. Using opium in college is not uncommon at all, and is typical of many college students. Drinking a quart of whiskey is just a good way of releasing stress.

    So Franklin Delano Roosevelt AND Winston Churchill sucked as world leaders? Yet you think Mao is a good one? This seems out of character for you.

    Churchill was a master leader to say the least. However I think the point of these questions were more to "you cant judge a book by its cover" kinda thing than to say who was a good leader or not.

    So Hitler was a white collar? :roll:
    Also by your logic anyone thats been decorated in combat hasn't had much stress in his life and hasn't "truly lived". So if you spent years traveling the world and dealing with hundreds of cultures AND death your not in touch with reality as a crackhead who never left home. :laugh::roll::laugh:

    Yes. The descriptions show they suck. China post Mao is a winner. To lead a country like China (in a bad economic stay in the turn of the century), to put it in the path that got it here, Mao is the better leader for me. Why? Aren't people more interested in such kind of descriptions for their prospective leaders these days? Isn't it the trend? Aren't there tons of articles about Palin's pregnant daughter...for example? So it doesn't matter what kind of statesmen they go on to become? Anyway, I chose D.

    Wow I would never expected an Indian to be a supporter of Mao. I mean India is almost a pure democratic country. In some ways more than America latley. Anyway China has always had a tough history and I believe they would have pulled through without Mao. And honestly I think they would have been a LOT better off. Say what you will about him being a leader but there is a big difference between leader and dictator. Mao was ruthless and didn't have much respect for human life. I'm really surprised you give him the credit for China's recent successes.

    Also I think the question was stating you cant judge a book by its cover. So to say Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Winston Churchill sucked yet Mao was "great" shows something about the current generation. To me this mentality is what gave Hitler and Stalin power.

    Run a country with those many people, and you'll know how quantitatively insignificant human life is. Or even India for that matter. Our leaders are busy investing on nuclear energy, almost totally turning a blind eye on "loss of life" due to blasts almost every day. All trivial issues put aside, the macro-picture of Mao's rule dwarfs the alleged atrocities in his reign. Macro picture is what you see today. The China that makes your e-penis (90% of your computer hardware), and is growing like Tubby who just won a life-long free supply at McDonald's.

    I'm not trashing China man. Not in the least. The "alleged atrocities" are not alleged. They happened. He killed to make personal points. Not to better his country. He killed for personal power. Not to better the peoples lives. Your leaders turn a blind eye to certain things because they have no choice. If they did I honestly think your culture wouldn't allow them to make any other decision.

    Yes I understand that with a population of India and Chinas size sacrifices must be made. However the difference between sacrifice and murder is vast.
