My old boss, Ronald Reagan, famously declared that every generation faces an existential threat to freedom. He warned that liberty is not passed on through the blood stream. It has to be fought for, protected and turned over to the next generation to do the same.
Should we fail to do that, Mr. Reagan, foretold, “We will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was like to live in the United States when men were free.”
I for one have no interest in being consigned to such a fate. I am sure that you don’t either.
If so, on this day, we are all called to do our duty, to cast our ballot, to preserve and defend our Constitution, thereby ensuring that our children and grandchildren will have the chance to do it, too.
If you still can, please vote.
This is Frank Gaffney.
