Ratings and Comments

James Wermuth, Newport, RI

Most appropriate considering Mr. Cruz's recent mess.

Hooray for Ted Cruz one of a few in the congress with any guts.

Mike, Norwalk

James Wermuth, what mess ? The "public good" as a stand alone rationalization or moral imperative, is at best an oxymoron and at worst, a criminal justification.

E Archer, NYC

I have never seen it practiced other than in a form of totalitarianism. If you have a good and wise king, then the people may prosper -- but good kings are hard to find! ;-)
