Political Virtue - The greatest obstacle we face as a country is political virtue. Let me explain. Political virtue takes place when politicians make decisions based on self-interest rather than in service to the Constitution and people they represent. When elected representatives are making choices based on the next election cycle -- and not based on the solvency and posterity of our great country -- political virtue has won. I will not fall victim to political virtue. I have looked into the eyes of too many young people in my role as a public school economics teacher. I will remember their questions and their concerns about our deficits and debt. I will vote with the future of our country in mind and not the future of my political career.
