A quote about parties and the country--posted by Tony Garcia on 7/15/2006
A quote by Henry Ward Beecher that was about the Civil War but I believe it should be re-uttered.
Is this nation...to remain dismembered, to serve the ends of parties? Have we learned no wisdeom by the history of the past ten years, in which just this course of sacrificing the nation to the exigencies of parties plunged us into rebellion and war?For those who are uncertain of the deeper history of the start of the Civil War need to check out this history book. It was allegiances to parties that drove partisans to their entrenched positions and led to the Civil War.
Just a little food for thought for the Party over Principle crowd.
