It is well known today the fact of the use of many pain killers that President John Kennedy was taking in his final days to deal with the physical aches and pains of his back problems suffered in WW II, which many believed he became addicted to. With the stress and pressures that are going on in the world, what are the coping mechanisms that our leaders are using to manage anxiety that is surely being produced by ongoing surprising events around the world?
No doubt there are many who are using cigarettes, there are some who are using alcohol, others probably sexual trysts to steady their nerves - look at our recent incident of bad judgement by the Secret Service. What about drug use? What about the use of pornography? How I choose to cope with life does affect my decision making processes . . . how I do this is based on my personal morals and values . . .
As our next election approaches, we need to consider that it does matter what are the personal morals and values and private lives of our leaders. Do you want your congressman, or the next President of the USA waking up from a wild night of "cutting loose" with random sexual partners and lot's of drug/alcohol use, and then with a "foggy" mind and aching head making a decision that will affect your freedoms, your financial interests, and the places where you live? Think about it !
