Whats he going to speak about? giving more farm subsidies to farmers not to grow, or praise the supreme court for letting Corporations take over our democracy with there cash?

Haha, thank you Dapper Dan!

In addition, I don't think you can INHERIT an election (oh- the beauty of democracy!), so the residents of his county would've had to vote for him, sooner fan. Not to mention- I think his wife runs a farm and sells cattle.

I seen the title PhD and I thought I would read something that would be thought provoking, and I was right. How can you look around at capitalism in this country today and not see all kinds of examples of people inheriting things while the parents are still alive,all kinds of businesses are turned over to offspring that really couldn't have done it on their own. Law firms,political positions themselves often become family dynasties,and that is all part of inheritance. And to think you can't inherit an election here in Oklahoma or even in America,it is always all about the money and that is often inherited not earned and often it is just about a family name and that is inheritance also. This is one of the things that has weakened us as a nation,people born with the silver spoon in their mouth that never have to really earn anything. Educational and opportunity doors are opened all the time for those that inherit family name and money while the parents are still alive. I also believe that the ability to stand straight faced in front of people and say I am a conservative that dosen't believe in Obamacare or helping people in any way but I am a Christian is also inherited,my kids could never lie that way.
