From The desk Of Odra Dyson:

I
received this from my very good friend, a retired Rockwell Int retiree,
and my Brother-In-Law, Bro Odra Dyson, Pastor of Santa Monica Church of
Christ in Santa Monica CA… He is not into blogging which I actually
hate, because he is a very astute speaker and man of God with his own
political opinions and ideas that really need to be heard by the
American Public, So bro dyson if you change your mind welcome
aboard…some of those fine sermpons could live forever here in cyber
space. From time to time, I will with his approval set his written and
spoken words to life on the net,

Pre-Presidential Experiences

History of pre-Presidential experiences

On
Presidential experience and qualification just look at history. Four
Presidents, all military, had no government qualification. One
farmer-solder, one solder, and two military academy. (Washington,
Taylor, Grant, and Eisenhower). Abe Lincoln stands unique because he
had no education and only spent two years in the House of
Representatives. Teddy Roosevelt is another, only spending two years as
the Secretary of Navy. Today none of these six would be viewed by the
media and the liberals as experience or qualified.

Look to
Mount Rushmore! There is Washington (solder), Jefferson (2 year
Governor), Lincoln (2 year House member), and Teddy Roosevelt (2 year
Sec of Navy).

Of the 43 Presidents, 23 came from State
Governorships. Many only after two years. Of our 220 year history, 122
years was lead by ex-governors. Conversely, only 10 years by those
going direct from the Senate to the White House, for two died in
office. Only four lawyers spent limited time in the Senate before going
direct to the White House (Pierce, Garfield, Harrison, Kennedy). The
rest of Presidents coming out of the legislature first did some duty in
the executive branch in Secretarial Positions, or in V.P. Positions.

The fact is few spent a lot of time in Washington D.C. before moving
up, proving that leadership is not a function of time, or of time spent
in D.C. legislatures and legislative committees The fact is also that
most went through Ivy League Law Schools. Twenty one came out of Ivy
League law colleges. Nine had no college. Three from military
academy’s, and the rest, some college. Most political experiences, time
wise, was in State and local governance.

As I have stressed,
think leadership not experience, not familiarity. Too many confuse
experience (time)with qualifications (ability). Too many confuse
education (law school) with intelligence (reasoning powers).
