IS NOT a CEO. Except for managing subordinates, the business field has some of the worst guidelines one could choose for political office. One’s ability to turn a profit for one’s self or a company has nothing to do with running a country. The two better models would be, one, running a charity. Does a president possess the abilities to run an organization designed to rescue people from disaster, poverty, disease, crime, or war?The other model one could use should be either unions or civil rights organizations.
I can already imagine many conservatives blanching at the thought. But what both outfits share are their ability to work to unite masses of people in a cause, fairer treatment for people of a class, profession, or ethnic group. It is no coincidence that in Europe and Latin America, union organisers are far more often elected than in America, where the US tends to elect businessmen and lawyers. The practices come from and result in a far more unequal society. In fact, civil rights organisers are among the few American congressmen with a history of consistently putting popular concerns above elite ones.
everything that has ever happened on this planet has had at its source the idea of a single individual. For sure, there are groups we can look at throughout history that have been responsible for a lot of things, but the genesis of that group came from someone. And the best of those groups were those where those who made up the group were being ‘someones’ as well.
So in reality, the individual and his individual actions are the only things we have that will make a positive difference. If you’ve ever been led to believe that that isn’t true, that’s because, unfortunately, there are some not too nice people out there who don’t want you to make a difference. And in fact, our society is full of efforts to make people not only feel like they can't make a difference, but that the only way they can survive is to be dependent on someone else, such as the government.
So we are all here to make a difference. We are going to make significant changes in this country and we’re going to look in the mirror every morning and know that we have made a difference. The difference.

no matter how overwhelming life's challenges and problems seem to be, that one person can make a difference in the world. In fact, it is always because of one person that all the changes that matter in the world come about. So be that one person.”
