Senator Jesse Helms--American Statesman

On this, the 232nd anniversary of the birth of our nation we mourn the death of an American statesman--Jesse Helms of North Carolina. How fitting that he should die on this day.

“Compromise, hell! ... If freedom is right and tyranny is wrong, why should those who believe in freedom treat it as if it were a roll of bologna to be bartered a slice at a time?"--Jesse Helms

We have too many politicians--men who govern by polls and fear the press and are bought by special interest groups--and too few statesmen--men of principle, men of backbone, men of courage, men of character. God rest his soul and in His grace give us more men like him.
