They had a choice, all of them.
They could have followed in the footsteps of good men like my father, or president Truman. Decent men who believed in a day’s work for a day’s pay.
Instead they followed the droppings of lechers and communists and didn’t realize that the trail led over a precipe until it was too late.
Don’t tell me they didn’t have a choice. Now the whole world stands on the brink, staring down into bloody Hell, all those liberals and intellectuals and smooth talkers…and all of a sudden nobody can think of anything to say.
