Help on the way

I wasn’t a fan of John Kerry before tonight. I watched the debate on Thursday and my opinion of Mr. Kerry remained the same: mostly neutral. Without much investigation into his MO, I developed the idea that he was just another politician in search of a higher rank, more control, more money ” as it seems to go.

But tonight I took a deeper interest and watched the movie “Going Up River.” To think that the identity of the man on whom the documentary is focused is the same identity of the Democratic candidate for the president of the United States is almost unbelievable. I guess I wasn’t paying much attention before.

If the film truthfully illuminates the real nature of this man, John Kerry, then America and all countries with an interest in America’s future, ceteris parabus, should prepare for an enormous change in the secretive, unilateral, invasive, aggressive, big-money, inhumane style of government that the world has come to expect from the U.S. If the film is accurate and does not distort the facts of Senator John Kerry, then help is most definitely on the way.
