Integrity is the rudder of democracy

The most important lesson that I took from the past few years is how utterly indispensable truth is to maintaining a democracy. The high-minded concepts laid out in our Constitution demand fealty to integrity and clear-minded administration of the constitutional process.

Without integrity, the system is shown to flounder and capsizes into a chaos of mistrust and authoritarian oligarchy.
