Voices of the Past
Sometimes if we want to look at the Road Ahead we have to listen to the Great Voices of the Past.....
So my son and I play this game....."What would a Great Leader say about Today's Mess ?"
We obviously are talking about the Buscho Regime, but we ponder What Real Leaders would have said about this Titanical Administration. We also look up quotes to attempt to back up our thoughts.
So today here is some Wisdom of President Lincoln for you..... IF you have some great Lincoln Quotes we would love to hear them.....
"Fearlessness for the Right is a better thing than Fearfulness for Peace"
( I doubt that the Terra Mongers would appreciate this quote)
"Character is like a Tree, and reputation is like it's shadow. The shadow is what we think of it-the real thing is the Tree."
( about Campaign Attacks)
"Every foul bird comes abroad, and every dirty reptile rises up".
"Would you have voted for what you felt to be a lie?"
( kind of interesting in our day and age...would Lincoln have voted for the Iraq War, I don't think so.....)
"He who has the right to criticize who has the heart to help".
(Compassionate Conservatives believe they don't have to "help"...but they do have to Criticize....)
"I pass my life in preventing the storm from blowing down the tent, and I drive the pegs as fast as I can."
"To Sin By Silence when they should protest makes cowards of men."
