Quote Of The Day – National Greatness Conservatismby Brad Warbiany
“We are fast becoming a nation of alienating individualists, unwilling to put the unifying values of patriotism ahead of our narrow self-interests,” Mr. McCain warned in a speech during his 2000 presidential campaign. He added that “cynicism threatens to become a ceiling on our greatness.”
The only people “alienated” by my individualism, as far as I can tell, are nanny-state bureaucrats. I suspect I’d alienate John McCain to a great degree. But hey, when people spend their time telling me what to do for the common good, I don’t mind being a thorn in their unifying greatness.
