This quote from John Galt’s speech to the nation in Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” says a great deal about this years election cycle.
“-when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors—when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you—when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice—you may know that your society is doomed.”
Very apt quote in light of this timely article, “Dems lack moral courage on Hillary.” Marc Thiessen starts by pointing out what we all know; many Republicans have flown the coop and are voting for anybody but Trump for President. Meanwhile Democrats continue to march off the cliff for Hillary. WHY? Seriously, WHY?
Here we have a woman who gets $300K for a 30 minute speech and no one ANYWHERE has ever seen a transcript or video. The silence of those who were at those speeches lends tacit support to someone they KNOW is corrupt. WHY?
Hillary Clinton blatantly ignored all briefings that she signed off on regarding information security and the specific guidelines regarding how to handle classified intel. Instead she set up multiple servers, multiple emails, and waived any kind of genuine IT security. National security be damned. Democrats support her even though they KNOW she was in the wrong on this. WHY?
