"It would be a grave moral evil not to do everything possible to defeat Clinton," (Maj. Gen. Patrick Henry) Brady told me. "What she would do is morally, physically and intellectually evil for our country."
Mr. Kupelian, thank you for quoting your friend Maj. Gen. Brady, the most decorated living U.S. military veteran. The general's words resonate as powerfully as those of Patrick Henry in an earlier time of great peril to liberty. May they awaken the so-called ideological purists and Never-Trumpers from their blind stupor before it's too late.

Hopefully, the fictional story below may serve to further illustrate the danger facing our republic at the crossroad.
A full airliner is abandoned by its crew who parachute out of the plane. The plane is rapidly losing altitude as one passenger, a successful businessman with superior piloting skills, rushes forward to the cockpit to take over the controls of the otherwise doomed aircraft. Astonishingly, several of the passengers, describing themselves as purists and never-nevers, try to block his path. They first want to know if he supports unbridled free trade and has photographs of Ronald Reagan on his office walls. Valuable seconds are lost in the mêlée, and as a result, the unpiloted airplane crashes into the sea and all perish.
