Truth

Traitorous, and Tremendous

Who are they ?

Let’s take a look at some of history’s greatest traitors (and what transpired (or is transpiring)) as a result of their dastardly deed (both the pros, and the cons).

Cain

bad day_bubblePros

Would there be morality without this event?  A strong life lesson.

Cons

Under this common ancestor, it is likely that a good many of us are related to a murderer.

 

 

 

Brutus

brutusPros

Julius did not have to suffer with his disease any more.

Cons

What would Caesar have accomplished, had he lived?

 

 

Judas

Judas3Pros

Would the proof of everlasting life and the propitiation of sin have happened without this event?

Cons

In some way, shape, or form, we have all denied Christ.

 

Benedict Aronold

benedictarnoldbitternessPros

Some say he was working for the enemy (us).

Cons

There were many British sympathizers in the States (then, and now).

What’s a poor boy to do (hell, we are kin to half of them too.  And they are kin to a murderer).

 

 

 

The Rosenbergs

RosenbergsPros

Can’t think of any.

Cons

Is there a distinction between this and the manner in which our enemies execute people in back allies, or sliced off heads with rusty butcher knives?

Difficult argument here (but I have heard compelling positions).

 

 

 

And now for something completely different…or, is it?

Strom

Sen. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina after his 24 hour filibuster in 1957. He was a Democrat then. Later, Thurmond would switch to the Republican Party.

Pros

He’s Strom Thurmond, and he was once a Dixiecrat.

Cons

He’s Strom Thurmond, and he was once a Dixiecrat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TR

TRPros

He’s Teddy Roosevelt, dammit.

Cons

Uhhh…there was one?

 

Left the GOP and formed the Bull Moose Party (landslide victory).

 

 

The guy who killed Gumby, dammit!

Pros

He’s Gumby, dammit.

Cons

RR

reagan-goldwaterPros

Are you serious?  He’s Ronald Reagan.

Cons

 

 

 

 

Hill-Billy Clinton (former Goldwater gal)

saul-alinsky3Pros

Cons

“Where do I begin, to tell the story of a love that’s meant to be.  The sweet love story of just what she means to me.  Where do I start?  Where do I start?

From her first hello…”

OKAY.  So, I am not really a fan…but where do I start?  We don’t need a column devoted to this one, we need a library.
