Politics is theater for ugly people, we are told.
Politicians who campaign on behalf of the people – and succeed and convincing them that they’re for the little guy, fighting the machine – have a short shelf life.
It almost seems like they are given a choice early on: take the lead or the gold.
Many take the lead – or do they? What if they fake taking the lead and take the gold too – and are reborn into a new private life?
I want to create a list of those who may have done so.
The controlled message of this deception is twofold: for those real people that think they can come make a difference and change the system, giving a more “equitable” share to the people – you better think twice. For the proles who want more of their share who dream of someone who will do so – forget it. No one is going to risk it for them and they better just be happy.
Here’s my list, in no particular order:
Rob Ford, mayor of Toronto
Jack Layton, leader of the opposition
John F. Kennedy, and all other Kennedys
