Crockett on Govt. Spending

This is an excellent piece from the Traditional Catholic website Daily Catholic.com. The piece is an excerpt from the book The Life of Colonel David Crockett by Edward Sylvester Ellis. One of the heroes of the Battle of the Alamo was also one of the most conscious and honest of politicians. Too often - in America, Russia and elsewhere - that is an oxymoron. In Crockett's case, it was the truth.

The excerpt reinforces the principle that government must not waste the money of taxpayers. Perhaps this is being utopian on our part, but to quote St. Augustine:

"Right is right even if no one does it, and wrong is wrong even if everyone does it."

In light of the constant bad news today, we need some good news and good food for thought. Let Davy Crockett supply it for us today.

Certainly Belloc and Chesterton would approve.

Roy: you might want to turn on "word verification" for comments. Unless, of course, you are trying to convert the spammers over to distributivism.

GKC also wrote "Right is right, even if nobody does it. Wrong is wrong, even if everybody is wrong about it." in All Things Considered.

Keep up the good work.

Regards,
Joe @ Chesterton & Friends
