Key Messages:

    What does this say about our present condition?
  1. In politics it is all about numbers. You may intend one thing, however to get to where you can do that you need the support of many who would rather you not say or do that against their own interest. If the numbers are not there, then you need to separate you opponent from enough of his/her numbers.
  2. How many of us today would without hesitation surrender say a third of our needed support for the sake of keeping the truth in play? How about one ninth? one twenty-seventh? one fifty-fourth? Let us reconsider, how many would do so with their own life on the line? especially today when our truth is only relative and not absolute?
