Top definition
someone elected to government noble enough to avoid cronyism, and allow citizens to prosper

(portmanteau combining these French terms, used in English):
1. Noblesse oblige: Whoever claims to be noble must conduct himself nobly.

2. Laissez-faire: transactions between private parties free from state-intervention --------> 3. (my neologism)
People running for office -- as wealthy as Ross Perot, Mitt Romney, and John Kerry -- would ideally be uninfluenced by lobbyists' money, level the playing field by the principle of "noblessez-faire".
