Dittos, Mary. Core principles ought to be non-negotiable, and well worth fighting for. Our forefathers certainly thought so, and so do I.
When you know you are standing on the shoulders of our forefathers and being a warrior for truth at the very depths of the soul in all that you do and say, it is a fight worth fighting.
That doesn’t minimize the backlash, however, from those who don’t get it. And they don’t. ...get it.
I wouldn’t be able to live with myself to know I voted for a nominee who has no core, no message, no scruples and no honor...a man who has not one quality that I believe to be good for our country or admirable as a man.
When I exercise the sacred right to vote, I stand before God, my country and my family. I will not disgrace them or myself by compromising the Conservative principles which guide my life.
I like what you said about our ancestors and forefathers.
Thanks for giving me hope that there are some stalwart warriors left here on Free Republic.
