"A moral obligation to win?" How is winning anything a moral
obligation? Voices heard, a mantra for ultra conservatives, could also cause
them problems in the future because there seems to be more talking, shouting,
and ranting, than providing workable solutions to problems.
I wish this bright and brash young man all the good fortune in the world in his
pursuits and aspirations. But along with a confident manner and approach, I
would advise him not to neglect gaining wisdom (not just education). In our
world, wisdom is sorely lacking and needed.
Michael Steele... has made alot of people vote democrat.
I appreciate his inovolvement and fervor. Would that all Americans were so
involved. That said, I am saddened that his political aspirations
seem to be right in line with exactly what is wrong with our two-party system:
The only thing that is important is winning the next election and staying in
power. He cites fundraising figures 2 years before the Presidential Election.
No impetus for change, only that Republicans win at all cost. Sorry, son, looks
like the Borg has assimilated you. Try this on: Rage against the Machine!
A lifelong Republican, I would endorse Tom Schultz as new RNC chairman, as he
seems to have the energy, passion, and a conservative approach...one glaring
frustration I have with the RNC is their not having helped unseat Matheson in
Utah with funds and support.
Hey Tex, his statement was that he wants to get conservatives elected. There is
a difference between a rhino republican and a conservative republican.He
seems like a bright young man and I hope he makes his mark in the political
arena.Thumbs up to Mr. Shultz.
Occasionally that "moral obligation" to win and stuff like that has
resulted in people in jail- hope he knows where the line is- problem is winning
and Wash. DC can be a little intoxicating- granted he is from BYU and so I am
sure he knows where all the lines are and certainly can avoid the intoxicating
part because no BYU student would ever cross the line- well except in that
little Watergate thing but hey that was not all about moral obligation and
winning now was it
As I read the comments it appears some may have missed the point of the
article.I have known Tom since he was a youth. As his scout leader
and eagle mentor I found a youth that when he put his mind to a task he was
almost unstoppable.I have worked with him and watched as he put
together a winning game plan to help get his brother elected Sec of State in
Iowa against an established incumbent with great name recognition. Tom's secret to success is that he just out works everybody.This
is a young man who will be successful at whatever he chooses to do in life.He has his priorities right and his life in order.
You think there is never a "moral obligation" to win? You must have
loved the Viet Nam War! Truth is that the only races worth winning are those in
which there is a moral obligation to win. . . as in Prop 8.Shultz
has it right; don't get hung up on electing Republicans; elect Conservatives.
They are the only politicians who understand the "moral obligation" to
win . . . for the unborn, for marriage, for religious liberty, for the
Michael Steele has become a great embarrassment to the GOP and his gall in
seeking re-election manifests his refusal to understand the great harm he has
done the party. Many thoughtful and engaged people have withheld contributions
to the RNC because of Steele's profligacy with party funds. I say right on with
Schulz's endeavors. Is there not a State party chairwoman from either Utah or
Colorado running against him?
Satan's helpers, the Liberals, think they have a moral obligation to win. They
stop at nothing to make millions of people lazy, entitled, enabled, and
dependent spiritual babies. They are sucking the life out of self-reliant
people who pay most of the taxes. Shultz is right. A moral win for him is a
legitimate moral necessity to stop the growth of liberal parasites. Go Shultz!
