MY CORNER by Boyd Cathey
A REMARKABLE Statement from a Political Leader
Earlier this month, on June 1, I authored a short installment in the MY CORNER series, “A Fearless Leader of the Present: Representative Larry Pittman” [https://boydcatheyreviewofbooks.blogspot.com/2019/06/june-1-2019-my-corner-by-boyd-cathey.html]. In these times when it appears that almost all our political leaders seem like worthless or spineless chameleons, willing to sell out for thirty pieces of silver, or, worse, unhinged and frenzied fanatical leftist ideologues, it is refreshing to find a few—underline “few”—leaders who stand out for their commitment to traditional principles and beliefs that informed the founding of this country. It is heartening to find leaders who are not afraid to forthrightly state and attempt to put into practice such principles, even if that should mean standing nearly alone at times against a self-satisfied or scaredy-cat establishment.
Yesterday I received the latest newsletter from Representative Pittman, and, as I read it, I knew I wanted to share it with you. Here—in what he writes to his constituents and his friends—is how a true defender of our historic culture, our traditions, and our beliefs speaks. Here is what we should expect from all our elected political leaders. Here, in these words, are enunciated principled stands that should be normative and common. That they are not, that they are rare and singular, says as much about the utter decadence and collapse of our society and our civilization, as it says about the principled and admirable positions of Representative Pittman.
I pass on his newsletter to you, and at the end, again, I list the address for his re-election committee. We need to keep Larry Pittman in the North Carolina General Assembly. His voice, albeit singular and often-times nearly alone, is the voice of our history and our heritage as a people, and it is greatly needed:
I urge you to assist him in his bid for re-election in 2020. Here is how you may do so (financially by check):
