Some thoughts for this day

Mark Twain:

“If there is any valuable difference between a monarchist and an American, it lies in the theory that the American can decide for himself what is patriotic and what isn’t. I claim that difference. I am the only person in the 60 millions that is privileged to dictate my patriotism.”

Rosa Luxemburg:

“Without general elections, without unrestrained freedom of the press and assembly, without a free struggle of opinion, life dies out in every public institution.”

And finally, an under-recognized man whose wisdom will surprise you, should you care to study his work.

John Quincy Adams:

“Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.”
