Yeah, all the talented speakers these days turn out to be charlatans. Perhaps Dr. Paul should rent Obama's teleprompter. The problem is not the messenger, it is the audience. A nation of people who learn history from public school propaganda, morality from t.v.-- movie icons and they skip church. Then, they vote for people who have the talent to make slick commercials and the cynicism to lie about their political agendas. Hillary Clinton, Barry Obama and John McCain. Statesmen all.
How about Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry and John Adams on Secession. Naw, wouldn't look good-sound good on television.
