Billionaire Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, has been considering running for president as an Independent. When asked about it at a conference in Atlanta he said we was “seriously considering” it. In the age of Donald Trump anything is possible. Mark would be an excellent president. He’s one of those billionaires who don’t necessarily act like a billionaire. As a long time Dallas Mavericks fan, I appreciate the passion and enthusiasm that he bring to the Dallas Mavericks. I feel confident that he would bring the same to the presidency. Most importantly, you can tell that he cares. One of the most important aspects of the presidency is having empathy.

As I speak of all these glowing traits that Mark possesses, it is to say that this is what a real leader looks like. This is someone who doesn’t seek party affirmation or affiliation. What I like about him is that he’s not afraid to go with the approach that just makes sense. Politics today focuses too much on what makes sense to a party, gender, race, and religion. It forgets that at the end of the day we are all Americans. I believe that Mark Cuban understands what it is that makes this country tick. He’s self-less enough to actually get things done for the betterment of our country

Mark has no problem with speaking his mind. He has no problem calling out things for what they are. In fact Mark has been a thorn in the side of NBA commissioners with his relentless criticism of the league. He payed almost 2 million in fines for calling out the league on many instances. This is what we need right now. Someone who is willing to fight for a purpose, and not just to fight.

The thing that impresses me most about Mark is the knowledge that he posses. As a non-politician he is very politically astute. If he were to run for president, as a democrat, I would definitely vote for him. Let’s start it up right now. Mark Cuban for President.
