Not to beat this into the ground but only wish to add as a matter of clarification.
In the matter of adhering to the Rules of SANET regarding no Politics, what if, there were a discussion, of George Washington or Abraham Lincoln and what they meant to Humanity.
Would that discussion be disqualified because they both held high office?
An Individual can wear many "hats" in the course of a life and therefore be defined in more than one way.
Jimmy Carter and His wife Rosalynn did campaign and serve as Governor and then President and Wife.
That did qualify them as being Politicians DURING that period, again, during that period, only.
But they lived many many years before and beyond that time and were NON political in the course of providing Aid and Humanitarian Help to those who were truly in need.
Those Other Years and those other people were the ones I was referring to.
Addressed him as President Jimmy Carter as a measure of respect.
Would afford that title to any former President even if they did not hold my admiration, however He certainly does.
But does not a one term President of four years deserve to be judged on ALL his works over a lifetime
especially when that work included over 40 years AFTER his time in Office.
Jimmy and Rosalynn were members of the Democrat Party, but were ethical people before that time and afterwards.
I DID NOT and will not focus on his term of Office and loss to Ronald Reagan, that would be Political.
But do maintain that any of us, one time President or not, be judged on the entirety of a life's work, and not labeled for just 4 years of it.
Go ahead, play with labels if you must, but any further explanation on my part would simply serve to deflect what I believe to be factual.
Rosalynn and Jimmy Carter, a Nobel Prize for Peace recipient, have my respect and gratitude as Individuals, not Politicians, for nearly a Century of Good work.
Never thought this simple Homage would create any controversy.
But Everyone has a right to differ and express that opinion.
Thank and respect you for that.
Like their daughter Amy as well🙂
