America is like an Idea, or a whisper that slowly changed over the long lines of messagers. The idea of a president has changed from someone who works for the people and his country into someone at the end of the whisper. He can tell the next person anything he wants. Since the secret was given to him by a reliable source it must be legitimate. It is a career more then a duty. The president is now an ego trip; he has the power to pass on the next message.

Imagine a lunch table full of students, one of the students gets an idea and whispers in the ear of another student He says "A country by the people; pass it on!” To make sure the secret doesn’t change he writes a note to pass along as well. Down the line that whispered secret changes with the others own perspective. At the end, the secret has changed so much it makes the secret holder get up and shout at the one on the end. He yells at him saying "That’s not what I said!"

Then he says “Did you get my note?"

The note was not lost, the dirty grease fingers of the line of children has smudged the note. The note is so hard to read that the person on the end doesn’t even want to try to read it. So now with no real proof of what was said he continues to whisper his own version of the verbal secret.

It probably would have been a good idea to just yell his secret down the line so everyone could hear it.

We don't have the secret we are on the other side of the cafeteria. Just hoping one of them will shout it out. So when someone does we stop eating and pay attention. Mike Gravel is on the other side of that table; he is turning around telling us what they are talking about at the beginning and the end of the line. Are we listening to that secret? Some of us are but it isn’t enough.



We should have that secret, so can we get the secret?

The Answer; Yes

We should have the courage to even ask if we can sit with them.

If we were sitting with them, what would we pass on?
