For the People
In the John Sayles film, Silver City, we see how inept and corrupt men can rise to power.
Many would argue that the real power in this country (or any for that matter) lies with money. Cash buys favors, and favors get unqualified candidates to win elections.
But, we should not get dismayed or lose our focus. True power lies in character, and, as the master had said: character answers all questions.
Do not sell yourself down that river and we will all breath pure air in a free society governed by good people.
