Re: Moral Failure of our Elected Officials
Funny, but I am not concerned with the very personal nature of something like this. I would rather not even hear about them because of the personal nature of such things. I am concerned only about the way in which a politician does his job and represents his constituents and the best interest of the american people in general. That he not put special interests above the common interest of the american people.
I do not expect our leaders to be deacons in church, and I am more pleased with men who are not perfect humans, because if they make an attempt to be morally superior to others, they are lying through their teeth. None of our greatest leaders were perfect moral beings, and that we expect that is ludicrous and shows our own refusal to see human beings as they really are. And we lose many men who would be great leaders because they consorted with woman and enjoyed sex. We should worry about the ones who seem to be too moral, because these are the dangerous ones and are hiding something greater than consorting with females for sex.
The private sex lives of other people is none of my business nor yours. If it is, you are just like women who watch soaps, and gossip at the beauty shop with the other old cackliing hens.
I want these guys to be moral when it comes to representing the american people, and I am not living in a delusion when I recognize the most common immorality comes from succumbing to one of the most powerful physical drives in nature. The sex drive and the need, the drive to satiate it. Half the nation who married divorced, and having sex outside the marriage is a common thread in these divorces.Perhaps 25 per cent more just did not get caught.
The lust for power that afflicts these politicians go hand in hand with sex. One enhances the other and both are very powerful. Powerful men like rock stars attract women. We can demand that they be sexually moral, but IMO that is none of our business. And we should not bother ourselves with it.
