Quote by Ron Paul
I like Mitt Romney as a person. I think he's a dignified person. But I have no common ground on economics. He doesn't worry about the Federal Reserve. He doesn't worry about foreign policy. He doesn't talk about civil liberties, so I would have a hard time to expect him to ever invite me to campaign with him.
In this quote, the speaker expresses their personal admiration for Mitt Romney as an individual, highlighting his dignity. However, they note their disagreement with him on various issues. They point out that Romney does not share the speaker's concerns about the Federal Reserve, foreign policy, and civil liberties. Consequently, the speaker doubts the possibility of being invited to campaign alongside Romney due to these ideological differences. This quote showcases how personal likability may not always align with shared policy perspectives.
But keeping secrets is a discipline. I never use to think of myself as a good liar, but after having had some practice I had adopted the prevaricator's credo that one doesn't so much fabricate a lie as marry it. A successful lie cannot be brought into this world and capriciously abandoned; like any committed relationship it must be maintained, and with far more devotion than the truth, which carries on being carelessly true without any help. By contrast, my lie needed me as much as I needed it, and so demanded the constancy of wedlock: Till death do us part.
