How About Presenting the Facts and Letting Voters Decide Who’s “Fit to Serve”?

Here’s a radical idea: how about presenting the facts and letting voters decide who is “fit to serve”? Consider the context of this presidential election and the judgment call as to who is “fit to serve”:

1. Americans’ Trust in Mass Media Sinks to New Low (Gallup)
“Americans’ trust and confidence in the mass media ‘to report the news fully, accurately and fairly’ has dropped to its lowest level in Gallup polling history.”

2. Both the Republican and Democratic candidates have highly unfavorable ratings; they may well be the most disliked nominees in American history.

3. The status quo in which voters are supposed to rubber-stamp the decisions made at the top of the wealth/power pyramid is falling out of favor.

4. Personal physicians are not disinterested parties; they serve the candidate, not the voting public. Their public claims of “fit to serve” suffer from irreconcilable conflicts of interest.

To best serve the interests of the nation and the voters, I propose that all candidates for the presidency submit to a thorough medical exam at an Army or Navy hospital that immediately releases the full results to the public. The attending physicians’ names will be drawn from a pool of qualified staff at the start of the exam, making it impossible for anyone to threaten or buy off the attending physicians prior to the exam.

The exam will include chest x-rays, CT scans, neurological tests and the usual blood work.

The examinations will be overseen by healthcare/medical journalists to insure that the exams adhere to stardard practice and the results are posted immediately without any tampering.

The principles at work here are:

1. The public has a right to know the facts relating to each candidates’ health.

2. Each candidate is given the exact same tests and treated exactly the same.

3. The public will decide who is “fit to serve” after reviewing the facts of the matter.

4. If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear.

If any candidate prefers to keep the results of the health exam private, they can do so by exiting the race for the presidency.

In addition to the medical exam, each candidate will hold a two-hour press conference every week until election day. Representatives of the entire media, not just the handful of mainstream networks and newspapers, will be invited to attend. To secure the room, the public will not be admitted.

Candidates will be invited to sit in comfortable chairs and answer any and all questions on any subject. They will not be allowed to wear sunglasses or be attended by aides. Since the room will be secured (all media reps will be screened for weapons, all entrances properly sealed, etc.), there is no need for Secret Service personnel to hover over the candidates.

Why should any candidate object to these very transparent and uncontroversial demands? Why should any candidate object to a routine battery of medical tests and a weekly press conference?

If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear.

This simple two-step process would greatly diminish the Ministry of Propaganda’s influence. It isn’t that hard to understand, people: the voters should be able to review the candidates’ medical exam results (i.e. the facts of the matter) so they can decide who’s “fit to serve” in an informed fashion. Isn’t that the core of democracy?

    Facts haven’t been allowed on the table of America’s political discussion since Pearl Harbor.

      Remember the Maine? How about the Lusitania, or the Federal Reserve, or the Income Tax (which would NEVER impact anyone but the very rich), etc.? And let’s not forget Lincoln deporting a sitting congressman and locking up northern newspaper editors simply because they opposed his aggressive war against the secessionists. Hell, even the Constitution and its binding of the hands of government was a giant deception (though the Federalist and Anti-Federalist discussions were far more of a real debate on a critical issue than we have ever seen since). Good point, but too limited in scope.

      “The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation. To depart from mere generalizations, let me say that at the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as the international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes.

      They practically control both parties, write political platforms, make catspaws of party leaders, use the leading men of private organizations, and resort to every device to place in nomination for high public office only such candidates as will be amenable to the dictates of corrupt big business.

      These international bankers and Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country. They use the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of office public officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government. It operates under cover of a self-created screen [and] seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.” – John Francis Hylan aka “Red Mike” – Mayor of New York City from 1918 to 1925 from a speech in 1922

    I have far less of an issue with their physical health as I do with their agenda as it relates to freedom, liberty, respect for the supposedly unalienable rights of American citizens, respect for property rights, personal liberty, etc. On all counts, ALL current candidates fail in my eyes. I don’t need a government doctor to shed any light on this truth.
