"What's the use of being elected or re-elected if you don't stand for something?"

My favorite pres­i­dent Grover Cleve­land said this. It is my answer to this post and oth­ers like it.

Pubic office wasn’t meant to be a meal ticket, it is meant to give the best pos­si­ble gov­er­nance by advanc­ing idea and poli­cies for the pub­lic good. I’ve read the res­o­lu­tion and it looks good to me.

The party has to decide if prin­ci­ples are more impor­tant than the approval of the MSM.

And if prin­ci­ple won’t do it con­sider: Con­ser­v­a­tives are a huge source of Repub­li­can fund­ing and have been send­ing back fundrais­ing solic­i­ta­tions with col­or­ful com­ments. What is more impor­tant? A happy MSM or a happy voter base?

On any kind of oath or pledge there is a sim­ple rule: An hon­or­able man doesn’t need an oath and a dis­hon­or­able man won’t keep it. The trick is to start with hon­or­able candidates.

All of this wouldn’t be com­ing up if the party had remem­bered another say­ing of old Grover:

A pub­lic office is a pub­lic trust.”

A lot of peo­ple for­get Grover Cleve­land, read his Obit from the New York times of 100 years ago. This man epit­o­mized what a pub­lic ser­vant should be.

My favorite president Grover Cleveland said this. It is my answer to this post and others like it.

Pubic office wasn’t meant to be a meal ticket, it is meant to give the best possible governance by advancing idea and policies for the public good. I’ve read the resolution and it looks good to me.

The party has to decide if principles are more important than the approval of the MSM.

And if principle won’t do it consider: Conservatives are a huge source of Republican funding and have been sending back fundraising solicitations with colorful comments. What is more important? A happy MSM or a happy voter base?

On any kind of oath or pledge there is a simple rule: An honorable man doesn’t need an oath and a dishonorable man won’t keep it. The trick is to start with honorable candidates.

All of this wouldn’t be coming up if the party had remembered another saying of old Grover:

“A public office is a public trust.”

A lot of people forget Grover Cleveland, read his Obit from the New York times of 100 years ago. This man epitomized what a public servant should be.
