    That’s a pretty good short paragraph.

  2. Please on my knees I beg you how can I assess the video of this moving address. May the good lord bless his heart!

  3. Oh, sorry. Won’t post it in replies anymore! I was being repetitive so that peoples e-mails would get alerted to the reply!

  4. I thought Sen. Webb’s speech was an excellent definition of the nature of this election. An amazing speech. Thank you for providing the links. 30
