I agree. to many political leaders evolve to become what is popular and keeps them elected and in office vs. holding to any true ideology

I'm not talking about specifics. But generally, people elect along party lines and do not care about the actual issues they stand for.

I LOVED George Carlin!! And yes, I agree. After all, the leaders are chosen from the citizenry.

I did too. I was sad when he died. He didn't pull punches with anything and I respect that.
