Powerful People without Elected Office

I just can't help but take notice of some very powerful people that are not politicians or business people that actually provide a product. As a matter of fact, most of them are entertainers . . . and yet they have a devout following that believes they are sharing insight and wisdom of the ages. I read and listen to opinions from both sides and frankly, I think many people are getting played. If we could just get a hold of the some logic in these various situations, we might be able to regain our collective composure. Fact one, Oprah is an entertainer. Many of her viewing audience believe she is enlightened and sharing with them her enlightenment, but basically she's enjoying her wealth, fame, and I would think her power to even tell people what books to read. Now moving right along to more entertainers, we have Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck, who state they are entertainers. Just because their listening audience thinks they are reporters doesn't change the fact that they are entertainers. Maintaining a large enough audience to sell their sponsor's products is their job. As for Sarah Palin, isn't good for her that her ticket lost the 2008 election? Joe Biden doesn't get to comment on every little thing that goes on and he's spending time with his family on a regular basis. If she were the vice president, she'd have to take care of her kids instead of twitter and she'd have to hold a few opinions to herself. She would probably have to just write her memoirs after her term, like everyone else that passes through or by 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
We give a lot of power to people in this country that really haven't earned it and are truthfully and openly making millions off of entertaining the gullible.
Buy the truth, and sell it not . . . a Proverb of Holy Scripture
