Former Trump SOS Speaking the Truth...

Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had the following words for the graduating class of cadets at the Virginia Military Institute. While not naming Trump or his administration specifically by name there can be little doubt but what his thinly veiled words where aimed in Trump's direction.

Free from being responsible to and having to support the boss he likely held little real respect for, he can now do the most good for America and her people by speaking openly and honestly about issues that go to the heart of who we are as a nation. We hope Mr. Tillerson and others intimately familiar with Trump and his administration will began to speak more openly and honestly to the American people about the very real internal threat America is facing from its current POTUS.

"When we as people, a free people, go wobbly on the truth even on what may seem the most trivial of matters, we go wobbly on America."

If our leaders seek to conceal the truth and we as people become accepting of alternative realities that are no longer grounded in facts, then as an American people we are on a pathway to relinquishing our freedom.

If we do not as Americans confront the crisis of ethics and integrity in our society and among our leaders in both private and public sector, and regrettably at times even the nonprofit sector, then American democracy as we know it is entering its twilight years.

Never lose sight of your most valuable asset, the most valuable asset you possess: your personal integrity. This can be a very mean-spirited town. But you don't have to choose to participate in that."
