“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”
- Alexander Hamilton. Spiritual father of #NeverTrump
Anybody that supports the government war against whistleblowers is suspect, in my book.
Can you offer some signs that allow you to distinguish so easily between a whistleblower and someone using that to cover their own law breaking?
For me, any person who works for the government who uses his knowledge or position to expose the crimes or misfeasance of the government is a whistleblower.
