Coburn in the WSJ

In most political issues (bar some social stuff) I tend to find myself following a ‘Coburn Rule’ — if Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) backs/opposes something, it’s usually a good idea.

This is certainly the case with the senator’s op-ed in the WSJ.  

In a republic, deception is destructive. Without truth there can be no trust. Without trust there can be no consent. And without consent we invite paralysis, if not chaos.

I believe Coburn is calling it quits in 2016 after serving two-terms in the U.S. Senate.  Republicans will miss his principled leadership greatly.
