offended by candidates' or audience responses should be sure to never run
for public office. Who among us is so perfect that we would want to tell
others how to express themselves? Even with rules sometimes, people will
be people. That's just plain realistic.
Besides being a courageous member of Congress who stands up for
principle (remember that word?), Rogan thoroughly understands that any
worthy member of Congress must vote his or her conscience because we all
live with our conscience until the day we die. Regrettably, that quality
of voting one's conscience is not to be found in all who seek public
office but, fortunately, Rogan has it.
I wish to say that Rogan's very difficult childhood, and the way he
turned himself around amid so much adversity is not only admirable, but
makes him an exceptionally outstanding role model for the hopes and
aspirations of our youth, who desperately need role models in our
increasingly challenging and complex society. No Ivy League schools for
Rogan. He came up the hard way.
Thank you for reading this letter.
