Practice what you preach, even if you’re the president. “Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.” These were the words of Founding Father Thomas Jefferson, who drafted the Declaration of Independence in 1776 and became the third president of the United States. But for all the accomplishments that Jefferson made in politics, he was still seen as a man whose principles and practices didn’t quite line up. For example: He spoke in favor of liberty (but owned slaves), believed in limited government (but increased government authority), and claimed to relate to the working class (but lived a life of luxury).
However, Jefferson’s lookalike, Michael Bolton, has actually put his money where his mouth is and supports his beliefs with actions. Aside from speaking out against domestic violence, cancer, and socioeconomic issues, Bolton has started several charities to help those causes. He founded the Michael Bolton Charities in 1993 to help fight poverty and abuse and serves as the national chairman of the This Close to Cancer Research foundation. Although these lookalikes have the same bone structure and wild hair, their integrity may arguably be in different places on the consistency spectrum.
