Today’s column by political pundit and columnist Mark Shields has some quotes which highlight the chasm that exists between left and right in this country … or, at the very least, it highlights the different attitudes of the two men that liberals and conservatives most admire. Here are the comparative quotes.
“The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, 'I’m from the government and I’m here to help you.' ”
“The best minds are not in government. If any were, business would hire them away.”
“Let public service be a proud and lively career. And let every man and woman who works in any area of our national government, in any branch, at any level, be able to say with pride and with honor in future years, ‘I served the United States government in that hour of our nation’s need’”
Shields concludes his column by noting that the members of U.S. Navy SEAL Team 6 are all public servants.
They sure as hell are!
