The involvement is key. Does that make sense?

I believe everyone here is aware that Voting is pointless.

I've noticed the escalation in rhetoric also. I watch business news pretty much all day and the parade of congressmen interviewed have been coming out with more and more outlandish claims about anything involving Obama. Even the news anchors are taken back by the fantastic claims some of these guys are making and it's common now for the interviews to break down into shouting matches.
Perhaps in my future semons I should emphasize knowledgable involvement. Know the issues...I may disagree...but at least we're arguing from a base of common knowledge.

The question is, and this goes to other ATS'ers not just Bill, once in power, will the power corrupt you?

It is truely sad to see when opposites cannot learn to "get along" for the benefit of the nation. Obama was elected and I can accept that he is our President even though I did not vote for him.
This is the epitemy of the phrase "sore loser".

If they can't lie, hide, and dissimulate, there will be no value in courting politicians any more. If agenda's and attendees MUST be publicly announced how can they hide?

I think that the public comprehension/educational level is a relevant point of ponderance and should be considered in this scenario.
