Draggingtree Posted December 21, 2013 Share Posted December 21, 2013 Flopping Aces: 20Dec … if we are to die, let us die like men. (Guest Post) By: Dink Newcomb “Well, Govan, if we are to die, let us die like men.” Gen. Patrick R. Cleburne Is there ANY ONE of you who doubts that this man said this when all hope (with honor) was lost and he proudly stood up to do what he saw as his duty? Is there ANY ONE of you who doubts that this man knew the consequences of performing the duty he bound himself to do? Is there ANY ONE of you who could stretch credulity enough to imagine these words EVER falling from the lips of the man in the White House? Is there ANY ONE of you who could stretch credulity enough to imagine that the man in the White House EVER entertained the concept of SELF SACRIFICE FOR DUTY WITH HONOR? Is there ANY ONE of you who thinks the mixed race child raised in privilege in Hawaii by doting white grandparents to now occupy the White House EVER stood any severe trials of character? Is there ANY ONE of you who truly thinks that any omission of this courage is irrelevant in the character of the people we choose to lead us? 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
