LETTER from CHIP NORTHRUP
To the Editor:
The first Presidential candidate that I supported was Barry Goldwater in 1964. That was not a popular position in Texas, where LBJ was revered. I got into a few arguments.
I did so because of Goldwater’s integrity, his personal ethics, his honor.
The second political candidate I supported was JFK – for the same reasons – compared to Nixon, JFK was a paragon of integrity.
I have tried to support the candidate with the most integrity in each election, which is why I could not support Bill Clinton.
The first qualifications of a President are integrity, honor, and dignity.
This year, the choice is clear: Joe Biden has integrity, dignity and honor. His opponent has little honor, little veracity and little integrity.
We cannot honor a man who has no honor. We cannot believe a man who has no veracity. We cannot follow a man who has no integrity.
