When Mayor Bryan Baum first took office last November he expressed the desire for city council chambers to have the same guiding principles as the renowned “Four-Way Test” of the Rotarians International…
The Four-Way Test
Of the things we think, say or do
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
Easily observable is how the insurgent Progressive Left in Longmont miserably fails this test of ethics on every count, all to the detriment of our once All-America City. In practically every form of discourse, especially the city council public invited podium of late, all we see from the Progressives is lies vs. truth, inequity vs. fairness, discord vs. goodwill, and adversarialness vs. friendship.
It’s been said the only thing these radicals want to “progress” with their agenda is to progress beyond the U.S. Constitution–getting beyond the principles established for the good of America (and present-day Longmont) by our nation’s Founding Fathers.
The far left in this country, on the national scene right down to Longmont, are truly the ones who are rigid and intolerant. A certain local blogger likes to embrace whatever is vulgar and profane, displaying a form of hatred toward whatever is wholesome. People with a spiritual sense can recognize such viciousness as a fundamental rebellion against God and His ways, certainly nothing new under the sun. It’s been going on with mankind since Creation.
I respect Mayor Baum for standing for the truth and what is right for Longmont.
