Quotational Therapy: Part 46 -- Vince Lombardi, "Number One" Speech.
Vince Lombardi, "#1 Speech"-
"Winning is not a sometime thing; it's an all the time thing. You don't win once in a while; you don't do things right once in a while; you do them right all the time. Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.
There's a reason the Superbowl trophy is named after this guy.
And Lombardi's point about the point of political parties (to win elections) is well-taken.
It's also lesson Democrats haven't quite taken to heart in recent years:
If elections matter, then wins in elections should matter accordingly. While the lack of respect from the establishment media for recent Republican poll victories is frustrating, it shouldn't get those of us who prefer economic liberty down. Instead, it ought to supply the impetus for increasing those majorities. And not just increasing those majorities, but filling thoes supermajorities with true small-government conservatives.
Let's strive to win, win, and win some more. We shouldn't fear overreach or backlash. We should respect and trust in the power of our own ideas. And win some more.

I love this speech. It's good, solid stuff. Good for anyone at anytime and in any age.
My only beef with Lombardi is that he coached Green Bay. If only the Vikings had hired him...
One is allowed to dream.
