    I think the dilemma Sam ran into:

    1. You can't be political and be Captain America


    2. Why would you want to be Captain America unless you could be political and fight for positive change?

I think for the same reason you'd want to be a soldier or intelligence agent. Captain America exists as the symbol of all those who protect the safety of Americans and the continuance of their democratic republic.

    At the end of the day Sam sort of showed how worthless the whole mantle is. You can only be a symbol in a lame meaningless stand for nothing sort of way. Speak out and voice your politics and you're unfit to be Captain America.
