It seems as though we have been socially conditioned to associate familiarity with a sense that we know someone. It's just not true. I don't think most people would think they really 'know' someone they have very little personal interaction with, so why do we do it with politicians? I'm sure you have heard stories about what our politicians are 'really' like when the cameras are off. The bottom line is there really is no way to truly know what a person's character is going to be until we see what their actions are. We know that the people currently in office have made it abundantly clear that we can't trust them. Virtually all of them are aggressively engaged in selling us out as fast as they can, destroying this country and stripping us of our liberties and freedoms.
