Maybe you should get involved in politics Free Mason, looks like you're well on your way already. I bet with the bloodline and education, you'd
probably get pretty far.
My family tree is interesting too. On my mom's side, my grandmother comes from an exiled General in Napolean's Army who is a distant relative of
his as well, my grandfather is the son of the "father of capitalism" in Croatia. On my Dad's side, my grandmother comes from Scottish nobility,
and my grandfather is related to some wealthy German engineers (the name of the town in Germany where his family came from is the same as their last
But anyway, I read something interesting about how the purest blood always wins the presidency and the bloodline is usually preserved in the women of
the family. So, from the family tree above, you can see that there were 5 women passing the original genes in Bush's bloodline, versus the 3 for
Kerry. But Kerry is also 2 generations closer to the original family than Bush. Kerry also had the introduction of John Winthrop into the family.
Anyway, I haven't done much research into the people in the family tree. But I remember that the Gore-Bush election and its proximity in votes,
reflected how close they were related to older blood. As it turned out though, Bush was the purest and he also won the election.
