    The one that Jesus chooses will be president, Dem or Rep, regardless of the qualifications we look at in the flesh. The government is on His shoulders.

    Maybe you can start a party called "The Word of Knowledge" that promises speaking in tongues in every house and raising all dead relatives.

    I am looking for a President that wants to serve the people, govern by the Constitution, and has good leadership ability. The reason I would choose these abilities is that would go a long way getting rid of the corruption, self centeredness and greed in Washington.

    A president who brings all the troops home and stops jobs from going off shore. I'm not holding my breath.

    Americans should be able to create jobs where ever they want in the world. If we want them here then we need to make the atmosphere more receptive and beneficial to the job creators.

    Integrity: A leader must be known to be trustworthy, consistent, and of good character.

    Humility: The President is, after all, a servant of the people. A president displaying humility would serve as an example for all other elected officials that they serve at the pleasure of the people, not the other way around.

    Honesty: President must be truthful in all dealings with the citizens.

    A President who actually abides by the Constitution--for domestic AND foreign policy.

    I start with two: (1) a desire to follow Christ and live in accordance with His word; (2) a desire to conservatively govern in accordance with the Constitution.

    Neither major party candidate meets my starting criteria.

    That disqualifies both Romney and Obama.

    We can change the Preamble to KJO so our nation is right with God.

    Verily, verily and behold, thou the peoples ofeth the Untied States in ordereth to formeth a most excellent union....................

    We need a president who will work to append the Pledge Of Allegience, ". . . with liberty and justice to all and therefore I invite Jesus into my heart."
