Senator _______

Someday, I want to be a Senator. I want to be making a difference in the world. I believe that everyone should have the right to GOOD healthcare. I want to have the chance to do something good for everyone. My plan, is to go into the United States Marine Corps for leadership experience. Then, when my GI Bill kicks in, take law and politcal science classes and work my up. Maybe start at City Council? Wish me luck.

I admire your idealism and desire to be an honest politician. I have worked "behind the scenes" in small town politics and now know it takes more than idealism to get in the cat bird seat. I helped elect the president of a federal agency in my town. We thought this man was ideal for the job. It took about 6 months for him to have to compromise with others to get things done that were dear to his heart. He could not be effective as we had hoped. In fact, after about 6 months in office he kicked us out of the agency because we became thorns in his side. He became "one of them". He had to to get things done.
