I am convinced all candidates for public office should be given a timed, public, writing test so we can witness in live time the real logic of their mental process and reasoning.
Do we appreciate their arguments and rationale?
A writing test confirms or disproves if the candidate is true, educated, and appropriately emotionally expressive.
A writing test gives us the best educated insight into the confirmed person beyond the fluff and the handlers and those who “shape the message.”
You cannot hide from your words or the consequences of your thoughts.
