22. You hit him with the truth...

which he will comfortably ignore. In this age of the Super PACs, truth tends to be rather a mere nuisance to the elite. While I respect your effort and your nerve in confronting the man, he will cry all the way to the bank.

Bad press, good press...does it really matter? The MSM is controlled by such people as Mitt Romney, Rupert Murdoch, David Koch. It's the golden rule... you know, who ever has the most gold makes all the rules. They also make most of the information, starting from whole cloth and tearing strips apart to spin it in whatever a way is most comfortable, most profitable and unlikely to be a risk.

Truth is always risky - had we a congress full of folks like you instead of these nit wit tea party imbeciles... well, I might just be optimistic. Had we a media of Journalists unafraid of telling the truth, determined to reveal facts instead of serving the almighty profit or the corporate types that own them.... well, I might be optimistic. If I suspected, even for a moment, that it was possible to reach these tea party types with facts, with any real notion of truth, justice, charity... well, I might be optimistic.

As it is, I am pessimistic as hell. I applaud your nerve and your candor, but can only wish there were a million more like you to confront such a Congressman every time he digs up the nerve to leave his office. Kudos and applause.
