Yes, just imagine what you, the well meaning successful candidate for congress, learn during your first day, week and month. . .
And then imagine what you learn, Mr. Good, well meaning successful candidate for president learn on your first day, week, month.... Imagine the first national security briefing by the way as president... Where you learn the truth about all the shit that actually happened 1, 5, 10, 20, 50 years ago and what the actual situation is now. . . That would be briefing #2 right after you get introduced to your bag men carrying the nuclear codes.
And how cool would it be if you, Mr. Successful new congress person, senator or president if you KEPT TRUE TO YOUR ORIGINAL INTENT FOR ENTERING POLITICS and spoke as Senator Bulworth did to the people, your fellow politicians, your campaign donors, the corporations / military contractors etc. I wonder how Kennedy handled all this (think of the book Profiles in Courage that he wrote) and then think of how president Obama handled this. Then think of how YOU would have handled this during your first day, week, month, year -- you personally if you were a well meaning successful candidate.
What do John Lennon, John Kennedy, Martin Lither King, Jr., Robert F Kennedy, Gandhi all have in common for sure? They were all murdered. What else might they have in common? Did they all suffer in some ways and / or die because of a combination of fame and unwillingness to capitulate? How many others have we lost for either senseless or malicious reasons? What did U2 sing? One more in the name of love?
