“I distinguish between two kinds of politicians. There are those who view politics as a tactical game, a game in which they do not reveal any individuality, in which they lose their own face. There are, however, leaders for whom politics is a means of defending and furthering values. For them, it is a moral pursuit. They do so because the values they cherish are endangered. They’re convinced that there are values worth living for, and even values worth dying for. Otherwise they would consider their life and work pointless. Only such politicians are great politicians and Ronald Reagan was one of them.”– Pres. Lech Walesa
I think the quote pretty much speaks for itself.
I am today thoroughly disgusted with myself...I could have done more to stop what is happening today. We ALL could have. I valued my comfort, my own standard of living, over the liberty purchased with the blood and sweat of my forefathers. I am ashamed.
But I vow to do better.
