Childish Stupidity and Respect for Democracy

"Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence."

--John Adams--

My highest commitment is facilitating political discourse. I believe that it is through discourse and open conversation, that we will arrive at the best choices for our society.

However unless we have the proper moral structure in our society and in our party, there is no chance we will prevail. People are victims of their containers, the form of the organization will change the nature of its people.

Part of our problem is that there is nothing more self interested then a coward. They hold on to fame and status like it is their childhood toy. It is a shame they have never grown up and learned what it means to be a responsible citizen of a democracy.

I am appalled by the people who will stand on the shoulders of heroes ,to take something they do not deserve. But this is the world we live in, and many of us tolerate this more then we should.

Bret, look at my brothers facebook profile. He just wrote up a little article that I think you'll be very interested in. It might be something that you're very interested in, seeing how you're one of the up-and-coming Liberals in out country.

Neil Bailey.
Befriend him, I guarentee he'll accept, he's a very accepting individual. He's the kind of person you should chat with, and you're the kind of person that can help him get through to people.
