All Progress Starts with the Truth

We can't get anywhere unless we identify the truth and Helen Raleigh nails it in this article.  I especially like her use of the Frederick Douglas quote:  “The life of a nation is secure only while the nation is honest, truthful, and virtuous."

Douglass was truly an American hero and I'll write a post someday about how much of a defender of capitalism he was.  Look up Self-Made Men by him and you'll get a flavor of how he might respond to Obama's "you didn't build that" view of the world.
