Hear Ye!

I can’t call it the Quote Of The Day, because that’s Joe’s gig.  Instead I’ll just post it;

“I think public service should be an honorable profession, with high standards of integrity.  I don’t know about you, but I’m done waiting for these people [the current crop of politicians and their sycophants in media] to supply that which they do not have.  I’ve come to the conclusion that if we want it, we’re gonna have to bring it.”  —  Scott Ott of PJTV, referring to his recent decision to enter local politics.

Yup.  That’s about the size of it.  If you want a job done right, you have to do it yourself.  After all; you can’t expect a pig to write a sonata, no matter how hard you might wish for it.

Afterthought; We hear a lot of talk about integrity.  “This is a man of great integrity..” and so on.  OK, but how about principles?  Integrity doesn’t really tell the whole story, does it?  Cannot one have integrity and still be wrong?  Alright then, I want to see integrity and principles.  Alright; integrity and American principles (of liberty).  It’s all I ask.

  1. Integrity is such a nebulous term. I want to know a candidate’s ideological stance, and how that is reflected in specific policy issues. Or as you put it, American principles of liberty.
