As the 2020 election unfolds and candidates are entertaining, spending, parading, politicking; and displaying character, personality, mentality and magnetism, it occurred that to prevent personal distraction and interference, as continued shenanigans, poppycock, gobbledygook, whatchamacallits and whatnot are unfurled, it would be a good idea to put together a working list of position requirements for candidates for President, Senators and Representatives. This list can serve as a nice time out for re-focus and serve as a hitching post for centered decision making. Would love to compare lists: send an email to
Position Qualifications

  • Leader who has a track record of building teams of rivals—coalitions; who understands that great leaders have been good followers; that leadership is an influence relationship that energizes earned power and willingness to achieve mutually defined goals.
  • Master of the self, mind”full”ness, awareness and integral life practice; and models the way as a person, in relationships and by helping others.
  • High standards with respect to morals, ethics, guiding principles and core values that are plainly manifested in candidate’s personality, character, mentality and magnetism.
  • Has learned self-restraint and 100% responsibility; and is visibly committed to health, wellness and well-being personally and for all Americans.

Affordable policies that respect humanity and nurture, grow and awaken American evolution.

  • Economy that works for all Americans.
  • Healthcare: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health, wellness and well-being.
  • Education-facilities, teachers and curriculum-and childcare.
  • Security: underwater, space and military.
  • Value in diversity, human dignity and respect.
  • Foreign policy coalition building facilitated by trust, respect and mutual goals.
  • Intelligence and technology leadership.
  • Infrastructure maintenance and evolution.

As the coronavirus outbreak and recent stock market declines have vividly reminded us, today’s global world demands leaders who can build and lead diverse teams of rivals, domestically and globally, to strategically and tactically facilitate resolution of issues for America and the world. As General Jim Mattis contends,
In this age, I don’t care how tactically or operationally brilliant you are, if you cannot create harmony-even vicious harmony-on the battlefield based on trust across service lines, across coalition and national lines, and across civilian/military lines, you need to go home, because your leadership is obsolete. We have got to have officers who can create harmony across all those lines.
We need to select good team-coalition leaders this November: all Americans and global partners will appreciate the harmony, collective improvements and sane evolution of the globe.
