  •  Ah yes, there is the word, "courageous". I havn't (7+ / 0-)

    seen any courageous people in our political system lately.  The system hates courage and weeds out those people early because they are a danger to the wealthy and the status quo. It seems money trumps courage and everything else in our twisted society because, we, the people, allowed the wealthy (corporations and bankers) to buy the government  Why did we allow it ?  Mostly apathy and ignorance.   So where would a courageous skillful person come from ??????  It can't come from our political system.  That person must come from the people.  And some day it will.  When the political class screws things up enough (and they will because of their nature) and the people are suffering badly enough, leaders will come forth to lead the people.  And they will say to our country's leader, (the president and company) NOW GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE, and it will not be a wish or a request.  Then the arrogant leaders will call in the troops.   But the army will say, hey we can't shoot everyone.  Besides, the people have a valid point.  And dam, we are the people too.  Just ask the previous leader of Egypt how it works.
