Well, it seems that the Odious Brown and American Traditions Partnership are going to get a bit of a smack-down from Judge Sherlock. Montanans have been waiting nearly two years for the documentation that Odious Brown has yet to produce, and finally, FINALLY, Sherlock has had it. The sanctions may not be much, but they could be impressive. I hope they are spectacular because, while I have no problem with people funding their political beliefs, I have a huge problem with people hiding in the dark to do so.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll keep saying – SCALIA WAS RIGHT! Democracy takes a certain level of courage, and if you can’t stand up and say what you believe to a crowded room of your fellow citizens, then you probably shouldn’t be saying it at all. If your stance is so unpopular that you can’t stand to be known to hold that stance, change your stance.
The flip side of that is that if you truly believe something, and hold it to be true, and right, and good, then you stand up, you stand proud and you stand tall as you tell the world. You may be standing alone.
But at some point, all great leaders stand alone.
