Whoa! It Just Occurred To Me: Politicians Complicit in the Death of Unborn Children And The Aging And Disabled!

     I know that I am the master of the obvious in many areas, and that I have my moments when I ramble on about things that everybody already knows. Sorry; it's a bad habit. And, sorry: but here I go again.
     Because this cyber-activity (blog) has been established upon the imagery of a virtual Catholic academy, dear Jedi academicians, please open your virtual dictionaries and examine the meaning of the following:
politics |ˈpäləˌtiks|  plural noun [usually treated as singular];
1. The activities  associated with the governance of a country  or other area, especially the debate or conflict among individual or parties having or hoping to achieve power;
2. The activities within an organization that are aimed at improving someone's status or position and are typically considered to be devious or divisive;
3. A particular set of beliefs, principles and assumptions relating to or inherent in a theory, especially when concerned with power and status in a society.
     I have no doubt that this post will raise the hackles of anyone who claims the title of: 

politician |ˌpäləˈti sh ən| noun;
1. A person who is professionally involved in politics, especially as a holder of or a candidate for an elected office.

2. A person who acts in a manipulative and devious way, typically to gain advancement within an organization.
     I won't ask any of you to pardon me as I now become politically incorrect. (Just like the rambling, I think my political incorrectness is another habit.) 
     You're no doubt familiar with the expression, "Guns don't kill people, people do."  
My conscience, intellect and gut need to express a similar statement: 

does not cause the abortion of babies and the murder of the weak, disabled or infirm: politicians

     Mikhail Gorbachev said, "What is the difference between a statesman and a politician? ... A statesman does what he believes is best for his country, a politician does what best gets him reelected."  Harry S. Truman said, "A politician is (someone) who understands government. A statesman is a politician who's been dead for 15 years." (So sorry, Ted! Hey, but it's only another 14 years.)
     Statesmen do not silently participate in any political process that enables the murdering of innocent children, the infirm elderly, or the disabled.   A statesman doesn't turn a blind eye to unjust legislation merely because he may not be re-elected if he stands on principle.
     Like, duh! I know you already know this. Sorry.  It must be an addiction -- just like the addiction so many of us have to the Truth.  

Your Politically Incorrect Assistant Headmaster
