You can run anyone you want that isn't what others... would consider qualified for the job,I don't think you understand how electoral politics work.
We are not a technocracy, we are a representative republic. We elect folks to represent the will of the people. Their qualifications? Be damned. They can learn on the job as they go.
You have one vote for governor in the State you reside, and that opinion of yours on the matter? Completely irrelevant. You can take it and stuff it up your ass.
THAT, is the opinion of a CCP technocrat. That is how those folks in the Chinese State think. They oppose even the notion that folks should have people represent them, their interests, or their families interests. Only the folks with expertise in technical fields get to be allowed in government.
If you don't believe me, look up the number of scientists, engineers, and folks with sociology expertise at the top of the CCP ruling party.
I don't have the details on all the CCP folks, but Xi himself is a chemical engineer. All the leaders in the CCP are engineers, scientists, and sociology experts, as opposed to here where they are all mostly lawyers, lobbyists, from the military or former industry experts.
If you have a society run by "experts," you eventually get a technocratic elite, that try to engineer society, rather than having one run by natural law. . . and then? Freedom and liberty disappear.
but don't expect them to win!
And then proceed to claim the election was stolen from them!
