"The President is merely the most important among a large number of public servants. He should be supported or opposed exactly to the degree which is warranted by his good conduct or bad conduct, his efficiency or inefficiency in rendering loyal, able, and disinterested service to the nation as a whole. Therefore it is absolutely necessary that there should be full liberty to tell the truth about his acts, and this means that it is exactly as necessary to blame him when he does wrong as to praise him when he does right. Any other attitude in an American citizen is both base and servile.

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or any one else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else."

- Theodore Roosevelt, 1918, Lincoln and Free Speech

 It's interesting also that someone as basically simple and without guile as Cindy Sheehan can come out of obscurity driven by geniune anger and literally take the moral high ground out of the hands of the blowhards who think they had a monopoly.

It's interesting that this unskilled and spontaneous middle-aged lady has demonstrated more impromptu skill and power of integrity and righteous indignation than any supposed power machinations we've seen from the reputed master of political tactic.

It's interesting that this person from the heart of America's true silent majority has generated so much whimpering and whining from those who find themselves more and more bereft of response and engulfed in shame.
Reluctance to Speak Out
"With peaceful people not wanting to quarrel with neighbors or co-workers about faith. Until the day comes when moderates, liberals, and non-Christians realize they are afraid to make their real views known in public. Because the consequences will be too unpleasant."
This - to some degree - is the reason for speaking out as we are able.

 "In a democracy dissent is an act of faith. To criticize one's country is to do it a service ... Criticism, in short, is more than a right; it is an act of patriotism - a higher form of patriotism, I believe, that the familiar rituals and national adulation ... My question is whether America can overcome the fatal arrogance of power." - J. William Fulbright

Public activism is primarily about a voice of reason if speaking to a neutral or hostile audience. It may be about harranguing the choir at times when speaking to fellow activists.

"It's time to punch the clock ... the Battle for America has begun"
