Fossil Hunting

"Personal honor is an archaic, fossilized concept....But suddenly, amid public malaise, dozens of nontraditional soldier-citizens have stepped forward out of the shadows to argue that right now in America, neither money nor incumbency matters as much as civic duty and the old idea of public service. And unlike most of us, they once put their lives on the line to prove just that."
Victor Davis Hanson on veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan campaigns deciding to campaign for Congress this November. If that strategy is going to have a cat in hell's chance of success, then the brave souls daring to take it on are going to have to be put in the shade by indomitable souls right across the entire continental U.S. who will not be governed by evil men any longer.
