Reagan's words should also apply to the Individual

This ought to apply to individuals as well. Individuals should not compromise their fundamental beliefs to conform to the ways of the collective. Patriotism demands that individuals speak up to perceived indescresions of governement, and that each person do so by not forsaking their own basic beliefs.

Ronald Reagan:

"A political party cannot be all things to all people. It cannot compromise its fundamental beliefs for political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers. It is not a social club or fraternity engaged in intramural contests to accumulate trophies on the mantel over the fireplaceā€¦No one can quarrel with the idea that a political party hopes it can attract a wide following, but does it do this by forsaking its basic beliefs? By blurring its own image so as to be indistinguishable from the opposition party?"
