There has been a lot of discussion about who won the recent debate — as though it were a sporting contest. Should we not be more interested in the issues and principles involved than in debating skills?
My feelings are that this is one of the most important decisions that we have ever made as a nation — whether to follow the pattern of the European countries or return to the principles and values of our Founding Fathers.
I don't know how George Washington would have fared in a debating contest, but the principles which he stood for, as our first president, have helped us endure.
