As with all election years, 2016 is going to be an interesting year as the election cycle moves forward. Strong ideals and beliefs are held by all, and there is so much at stake – not the least of which is keeping the American Dream alive. I think that William F. Knowland said it well:
“If we as Americans show the same courage and common sense that motivated the men who sat at Philadelphia and gave us the Declaration of Independence and later the Constitution of the United Sates, there is no domestic problem we cannot solve and there is no foreign foe we need ever fear.”
William Fife Knowland (June 26, 1908 – February 23, 1974) was a United States politician, newspaperman, and Republican Party leader. He was a U.S. Senator representing California from 1945 to 1959. He served as Senate Majority Leader from 1953-1955, and as Minority Leader from 1955-1959. He was defeated in his 1958 run for California Governor. He succeeded his father, Joseph R. Knowland, as the editor and publisher of the Oakland Tribune.
