Where have all the statesman gone? Just got through watching a reflection of the VP acceptance speech at the 1964 Republican convention on CSPAN and it was very interesting! His daughters are now Obama supporters, but his speech was very inspiring as he attempted to convey what the Republican party stood for. It was very eloquent and not at all like present day speeches that sound so plastic and rehearsed.
Our founding fathers believed that public service was a duty not a job. That it was a necessary and important sacrifice of time and income. It was not designed to be a full time job, rather a limited engagement that was to be shared by several members of the community. Are there any of you out there that are passionate about their community, their state, their country, and are willing to donate their time to improve the quality of life for all?
