When we have enough voters with sound principles, we will get
"politicians" who live by those sound principles.
Being dead cures many character flaws.
It's easy to say nice things about people after they die. It's a
little harder to look for the good in living politicians. And sometimes
it's almost impossible to find. Take Mike Lee, for instance . . .
Living office-holders are politicians. Dead ones were statesmen. What you
suggest is that we need more statesmen.
Ike, if you can fix it run for office.
