I don't have any political heroes except for those of you who are saving $25 a month to help the right candidates get into office. You're my political heroes.
Politicians? When I have more liberty as a result of their actions, I'll nod in their direction, but I know that politics is power and that power corrupts and that it's only a matter of time before they lose their bearing because they are frail human beings like the rest of us.
Be careful with people who adopt political heroes. They tend to adopt a scorched earth policy when you don't like their political hero.
Embrace We the People as your political heroes.
