Otis Chandler Quote

“Once we start to worry too often and too deeply about what certain individuals and what certain groups think about us, then we might start selling our souls for the sake of expediency.”

Our government has sold its soul at the expense of the people they claim to protect.

Jennie, Framingham, MA

Very applicable in this election season.

WOW is that accurate. I know attorneys and those calling themselves libertarians that capitulate to compelled compliance, government license, victimless crimes, larceny with impunity and alienation of nature's endowed rights, not so much for fear of the tyrant's punishments bur rather, for what peers (commercial, neighbor, family, etc.) may think of them and mostly for expediency sake.

The mainstream media have long ago lost their souls. Journalism is now equated with 'opinion-making for social change,' free press be damned. The power to mold a culture of dependency has more far-reaching payoffs than an immediate profit. The truth indeed sets us free -- the corruption of the press does the opposite.
