McCain words at Naval Academy

Fedblog: McCain on Service: The 'Great Cause'
By Tom Shoop

Outside the bureaucracy, looking in.

Monday, April 7, 12:07 p.m. ET:

Before it fades into the mists of time, I wanted to take note of John McCain's speech last week at the Naval Academy. Here's what he had to say on the subject of government, public service and citizenship:

I'm a conservative, and I believe it is a very healthy thing for Americans to be skeptical about the purposes and practices of public officials. We shouldn't expect too much from government -- nor should it expect too much from us. Self-reliance -- not foisting our responsibilities off on others -- is the ethic that made America great.

on that particular point, i agree with Mccain. i want self-reliance. i don't like the government meddling around in my affairs or anyone elses for that matter. if i want help, i will ask for it. when i do something on my own, i value the end result more cuz i did myself, it wasn't just handed to me.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo
