A former president will die and he is saying his good-byes
“I just want to read one of Uncle Jimmy’s quotes,” Kim Fuller said during the Sunday school morning service, adding: “Oh, this is going to be really hard.”
She referenced this quote from Jimmy Carter:
“I have one life and one chance to make it count for something. I’m free to choose that something. … My faith demands that I do whatever I can, wherever I can, whenever I can, for as long as I can.”
Kim Fuller adds . . .“Maybe if we think about it, maybe it’s time to pass the baton. “Who picks it up, I have no clue. I don’t know. Because this baton’s going to be a really big one.”
Tributes continue to be made to the former US president Jimmy Carter, after the announcement that the 98-year-old has entered hospice care at his home in Plains, Georgia, instead of receiving “additional” medical treatment.

Dems pick a good ol’ southern fella & peanut farmer right out of the Andy Griffith mold and he’s elected. Say what? He won! One term only. Swept away by Ron Reagan. End of story, almost.
As POTUS, Jimmie Carter was a more popular leader in almost every country in the world than he was in the US. Yet, Ronnie Reagan still owed a huge debt of gratitude to Ayatollah Khomeini for the political advantage that he was given. Few would deny that Jimmy Carter was the greatest former POTUS of our generation.

Things could have been different. People point to lot’s of different turning points, while overlooking his contributions to what could have been. We are to this day seeing the contributions of the Republican rat-fucking and collusion with the enemy, placing party over country that is sop for the gop.
Hunter S Thompson wrote above The Wave that disappeared; how we were winning, you could see it out there on the horizon … and then !poof! He timed it to an earlier iteration, I time it to Jimmy Carter’s loss in 1980.
Things could have been different. They are not …
