If his country turns out not to be successful then his toast is half-wrong and so, not 'always right' .

We need a new toaster methinks.

Always right is not the same as always acting right, but the wish sets a precedence: right trumps successful.

Hardly anyone left to rightfully claim the higher moral ground. Definitely not the self appointed righteous.
Actually, the sure sign of abusing the higher moral ground is the making of a claim upon it.

For our country to always be successful shouldn't we have a President that know what he is doing and does what Is needed for the People. Our government is full of Upper-class citizens that are from a background of money. I believe that we need to put middle and lower-class citizens in the government positions. If we had a person who actually has to work for their living, and knows what is needed for the country. Federally legalize marijuana and tax it. That will drop our countries debt tremendously. Instead of spending 18 billion dollars to stop marijuana from getting used and distributed, take that money and put it back into the economy. Our government is spending money on useless things, in order for our country to be successful and always right, we need to manage our countries money and have a president who with each year isn't increasing our countries debt.
