I want to share this quote from Senator John McCain

“To refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ‘the last best hope of earth’ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.”

“We live in a land made of ideals, not blood and soil. We are the custodians of those ideals at home, and their champion abroad. We have done great good in the world. That leadership has had its costs, but we have become incomparably powerful and wealthy as we did. We have a moral obligation to continue in our just cause, and we would bring more than shame on ourselves if we don’t. We will not thrive in a world where our leadership and ideals are absent. We wouldn’t deserve to.”

Senator John McCain 2017

I want a President and Leader of the Free World who has ideals like these, not a sick wanna be Tyrant like Trump, who can only think of himself.

Just a reminder, in case anyone has already forgotten, John McCain is one of the many people Trump has labeled as” Losers” and “Suckers.”
