Today, in the back of my mind, I can not shake a particular quote I once heard, it was fairly long, so I made sure I had it right and wrote it here. I think you will find it to be the incredibly poignant to today's events. Cicero once said...
"A nation can survive it's fools, and even the ambitious. But it can not survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is know and carries his banner openly...
"...But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through the alleys, and even the halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor, he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and wears their face and their arguments...
"..., he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of the nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear."
-Marcus Tullius Cicero. His words ring true thousands of years later. Hear his ancient warning. @realident @jertoresist @JeffersonsNotes #TraitorTrump #TreasonSummit #Treason #Cicero #Traitor
