I've never understood the "I'm just one person" attitude.

People seem to be stuck in the notion that they are "just one person" and can't have an effect on this big country.

I can't really understand the attitude, but I didn't really have a strong argument.

At least, I didn't until a bit ago...

This person you'd scoff at if he walked by you, this kid you'd expect to find serving your coffee, this "one person" brought down a federally funded multi-state organization. An organization that was one of the president's favorites.

How can you look at that incomprehensible douchebag who changed the course of politics in this nation with a camera, a suit, and a fake fur coat, and say that one person can't do anything is lying to themselves.

You forgot to add horrible video editing to your list of things he did.

You must be talking about those horrible star-wipes. I know, it was pretty 80's, but what are you going to do?

If you're going to complain about "creative" editing, I'm going to stop you right there, because I watched the full, unedited videos of two of the stings. There was no funny business that I could detect. But if you've got some new information, I'd be happy to hear it. (though it still wouldn't change his accomplishment)
