The Last Boy Scout

You'd have to go a long way to find a man as decent and honest as George McGovern. Should have been President. Had he been, we might not be in the god-awful mess we're in now. But, there you go.

For those who think that the US just suddenly went to hell in a handcart under Bush/Obama (who are like Siamese twins joined at the fascism) I would ask you to note Sen. McGovern's laundry list of things that need be done to straighten this country out. Hauntingly familiar?

Uh-huh. And that was 40 years ago.

Today we have all the same problems-- only worse.

First Presidential election I ever voted in and I'm proud to say I voted for McGovern. What was right and true and just back then, is still right and just and true now.
