QOTD for Oct 11, 2016: Keith Koffler, on Selfishness in Politics

QOTD from Keith Koffler, White House Correspondent, on his blog "White House Dossier" in the article "The Selfishness of Republicans Too Good for Trump":

"Our service members in uniform go risk their lives every day for causes and presidents they do not necessarily support. They don’t choose to fight World War II for Roosevelt, or to not to fight at all, if they are assigned to fight in Iraq for Barack Obama. They go all out and fight to win, even if it hurts their feelings. Or worse.
"Is it too much to ask of Republican political and thought leaders that they make a decision about what will benefit the country, instead of what benefits themselves?"

Nothing political is implied by my use of this photo: I chose it because it exemplifies the humility and courage each member of our military presents in their service each day.
