What America can learn from this artist

Kartikey Sehgal

  • we -- we own this country.
  • We -- we own it. It is not you owning it, and not politicians owning it. Politicians are employees of ours.
  • Whether you are a Democrat or Republican or whether you're libertarian or whatever, you are the best. And we should not ever forget that. And when somebody does not do the job, we got to let them go.
                                                           -Clint Eastwood 

(We don't do politics these days, unless.)

 Clint Eastwood is an acclaimed artist from America. 

In view of the recent 9/11 anniversary and the forthcoming elections, this story tells you what American policy should be like (description below video):

In brief, suckers attack a girl in daylight, her weak friend offers them peace and brotherhood, fails.
Eastwood comes to the party, tells them to ____. Takes the girl home.
The film, Gran Torino, symbolises American values, that need to be preserved and passed on. Bravery and balls.

This is what he stood for during the recent Republican party convention. [link

He is being mocked by people who need to take a leaf out of his work and try to achieve a fraction of it. These minions are busy making fun of him, calling him a senile old man who yells at chairs.

The speech was in disfavour of President Obama. It was, however, not totally in favour of Mitt Romney, at whose convention Eastwood spoke impromptu.

An 82 year old man speaking impromptu Vs Obama, Romney and others speaking learned and practiced speeches.

After being mocked initially, many people are coming to grips with what he spoke. Leading to the celebration of 'National Empty Chair Day'.

These chairs hold quotes of Clint's speech. This is inspiring. An impromptu speech of an actor rising above the practiced speeches.

Clint's frank talk has, for the time being, superseded the aura of the Presidential candidates.

Leave aside the politics, whether Republican or Democrat, we need courageous men as leaders, and courage is exemplified by your work.

Americans criticising him should should make a note despite differing ideologies. This is what will get them out of the rut they find themselves in.
