La política no se reduce a depositar una papeleta en una urna cada cuatro años. Cada decisión que tomas, cada cosa que haces, tiene su repercusión.

Me daba bastante pereza titular así esta entrada, pero finalmente no me he resistido.
The Rock on which the Pilgrims disembarked is still shown [and] has become an object of veneration in the United States. I have seen fragments carefully preserved in several American cities. Does that not clearly prove that man's power and greatness resides entirely in his soul? A few poor souls trod for an instant on this rock, and it has become famous, it is prized by a great nation; fragments are venerated, and tiny pieces distributed far and wide. What has become of the doorsteps of a thousand palaces? Who cares for them?
