McGovern didn’t “trumpet his causes”. He lived them.
He was an educated, knowledgeable man who was interested in the world. His vision went beyond the valley he was born into. That is unlike self-satisfied corporate puppets calling themselves fiscal conservatives.
McGovern focused on his country’s place in the world – not on a ledger sheet.
It is a testament to McGovern’s integrity that after leaving public service, he did not devote his life to becoming filthy rich as a lobbyist and/or other exploitation of his political connections.
McGovern never stopped having humanity and humility.
Romney has never started.
If Romney becomes President, the USA will become the world’s shining beacon of lost-hope.
That’s the real truth.
