Omaha World Herald – PUBLIC PULSE – May 13, 2008

For the good of others

In his May 8 letter, David Gaines could have saved himself time by simply saying that those who disagree with him should not vote…for the good of the country, of course.

Such restraint would be an act of patriotism of some kind, at least by his thinking. This is a unique view of patriotism and civic duty. And thankfully so.

I shudder to imagine a country in which the only ones to vote are people like Gaines. Oh, what good they would try to do for the country…and to us.
