Sympathies to who failed at the ballot.
But one victory drawn troublingly clear, sharp and bright,
Goes to meddlesome bother, whatever you call it.
The left won Virginia, the right California,
And the lesson if you're willing to listen:
Is your countryfolk quiver to correct, rule and scorn you
And another's gold's all that seems to glisten.
The reason we follow constitutional law
And defend it with all of our labor,
Is that most would deplore a long nose in the craw
While busy sniffing after their neighbor.
MAJORITY RULE, n. The method of government that honors each citizen above his fellow.
Sorry to be a buzz kill, grinning leftists, but this kills me. To paraphrase my LORD and Savior, among others, unless you'd have your own beliefs and behavior submitted to your neighbors' approval, don't vote on theirs.
A final atypical editorial comment: Thank you to John McCain, the best Republican I've voted for and maybe the last.
