I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.
Some G. K. Chesterton quotes I think apply to today.
“Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions.”
"Impartiality is a pompous name for indifference which is an elegant name for ignorance."
“I believe in getting into hot water; it keeps you clean.”
"The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him."
"There are two ways to get enough. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less."
"You can only find truth with logic if you have already found truth without it."
"We do not need to get good laws to restrain bad people. We need to get good people to restrain us from bad laws."
"Men do not differ much about what things they will call evils; they differ enormously about what evils they will call excusable."
"Art, like morality, consists of drawing the line somewhere."
"There are two ways of getting home; and one of them is to stay there."
"These are the days when the Christian is expected to praise every creed except his own."
"When men choose not to believe in God, they do not thereafter believe in nothing, they then become capable of believing in anything."
"Once abolish the God and the government becomes the God."
"Tolerance is the virtue of the man without convictions."
"Thinking in isolation and with pride ends in being an idiot."
"A man must be prepared not only to be a martyr, but to be a fool. It is absurd to say that a man is ready to toil and die for his convictions if he is not even ready to wear a wreathe around his head for them."
"Government has become ungovernable; that is, it cannot leave off governing. Law has become lawless; that is, it cannot see where laws should stop. The chief feature of our time is the meekness of the mob and the madness of the government."
"Unless a man becomes the enemy of an evil, he will not even become its slave but rather its champion."
