Political Quote Of The Week

With the general election approaching and with this candidate and that adjusting their positions and principles to fit what they think the voter wants to hear, I have chosen a quote from Thomas Paine.

I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.

The pursuit of principles is no longer the aim of a politician. These people sole concern is to be elected and then to be re-elected.
