David Brooks writes in the New York Times that President Obama should follow the Whig tradition of "economic advancement and social mobility" to help address issues the nation faces. Read more at:
Over the last several months, the Whigs have seen a significant increase in membership and support. The Whig message of a moderate pragmatic approach to government highlighted by focusing on logic, reason, and collaboration over ideology continues to gain traction across the nation. Political developments like the government shutdown this past year and the historic election of the first Whig in almost 160 years has also helped to drive this growth.
Update: The upgrade went as planned, and was much shorter in duration than expected. We are now fine-tuning things but in the meantime you should have a better experience. Please let us know if you have problems.
On this and every Memorial Day, may we honor and remember those of us who died fighting for the freedoms that we are able to enjoy today. While we visit with friends and families and enjoy our time together, let us remember those who sacrificed their time and lives with friends and family. May we not just remember their death but their lives, lives that were defined by action. Their lives must be remembered for the noble action of fighting for those who couldn’t fight for themselves, here in America and abroad.
No words can ever express or be adequate to thank the veterans of the United States military. Our veterans and their families have sacrificed much in order to ensure that we can live our lives not only in peace but in a land where tremendous personal opportunities are possible. Thank a veteran today and this week, volunteer with the VA. Show them through words and actions your appreciation. This is a good way to thank them because they swore to defend use with their words and have done so with their actions.
May we never forget 09-11-01 and those who tragically died that day. May we remember their families and pray for or wish them continued comfort. May we also remember those who have died serving our nation since then, those who have defended us so that we may live in peace. We must always remember their sacrifice and pray or wish comfort to their friends, families, and loved ones. We must honor their spirit with our spirit and honor their actions with our actions, each and every day.
