There's no indication prior to the "I'm convinced of it" to indicate he's switching into that type of phrasing again. Its the end, after saying that YOU'LL make the changes and stating his view on that.How about that last sentence? Is he saying that "you" are convinced?
He mentions the game earlier, talking about being part of the problem or the solution in Washington. He references the game in that passage, talking about how "you don't have to solve Washington. The tea parties have the backdrop of the capitol. The capitol could go into a giant sinkhole as far as I'm concerned. Doesn't matter to me. You are not going to be able to go in there and fix that."Yes, the spoken word's intent can get lost in print. Whoever transcribed this should have put that line in quotes if that was the intent of that line.
What game is he referring to anyway?
The game, that he's referencing, is the political game played on the capital where people are trying to fix Washington. He's suggesting you can either keep playing that, or be like what he's describing Washington and Lincoln as doing and fix the COUNTRY.
No, he said "Once you do that and then make your choice"He didn't say, "You have to ask yourself one question."
Seriously, I'm not a fan of Beck, but in no way shape or form is he suggesting he's like Lincoln or Washington
