"when we place...." emphasis on "we"
The implied fallacy, however, is that "if" we found "good" men then everything would be right -- it's not that we found only the bribe-able ones, it's that all men who seek power (wherein the power profit-bursts on abdicated authority) through force-agencies they are by necessity bribe-able.
Ron Paul is an exception (of course) but he seeks power for another reason -- to use his office as a pulpit.
There is no value in being RP-like -- You need a district like the 14th Texas to win 11 elections -- he will have no career in lobbying (at least not like other politicians do), so young politicians will only be %'s of RP not the full-deal.
