Tabacco: When Politicians flip-flop, it proves that all their ethical positions are negotiable! This has nothing to do with ‘finding God’! But when they won’t bend an iota on anything – no matter how venal or Machiavellian, it generally proves they are authoritarians. An unyielding politician is the worst of all political vermin. Such an inflexible person does not represent anyone but him- or herself. There are only 2-ways to solve any problem: 1) his or her way and 2) the highway.
The Ethics Negotiable ones are generally – but not always – Democrats. The Morally or Religiously Immovable ones are invariably Republicans. Donald Trump used to be a Democrat before he became a Republican. Both Hillary and Donald belong to the Ethics Negotiable class of Politician. Neither is ‘wed’ to any moral or religious concept except for the moment when it suits their political advantage.
Voters need to remove Politicians from pedestals and cease making excuses for their Bad Behaviors. They are who they are – Politicians!
Ever so often a Politician comes along, who is neither authoritarian nor Unethical. Bernie Sanders appears to be one of those Rarest of the Rare. Bernie has always demonstrated an Ethical approach without the Authoritarianism. Even being dead wrong on NRA values hasn’t caused him to reverse direction just to win the Presidency. Sanders, alone among the Candidates, has non-negotiable ethics and a will to lead in the best tradition of Utilitarian Politics.
If I can see the obvious, why can’t everyone else! Let’s leave Donald and Hillary to their own machinations and allow the Best Man for the job to lead America out of Purgatory!
Tabacco: I consider myself both a funnel and a filter. I funnel information, not readily available on the Mass Media, which is ignored and/or suppressed. I filter out the irrelevancies and trivialities to save both the time and effort of my Readers and bring consternation to the enemies of Truth & Fairness! When you read Tabacco, if you don’t learn something NEW, I’ve wasted your time.
Tabacco is not a blogger, who thinks; I am a Thinker, who blogs. Speaking Truth to Power!
In 1981′s ‘Body Heat’, Kathleen Turner said, “Knowledge is power”.
