You know, Thomas Edison said, "I have not failed 10,000 times. I have successfully found 10,000 ways that will not work."

Without failure you cannot have success.

General Motors will not succeed in the future if it is rewarded for its failures with government funds. And it certainly will not succeed being run by the federal government.

States and towns will not succeed if we reward their failed policies by electing the same tired representatives who tackle every problem with tax and spend policies.

Activist judges ruling on empathy rather than law won't help people; it will just teach them that there is an excuse for everything they do.

Let them fail.

It's better to learn from failure and unleash the entrepreneurial spirit that made America great, instead of killing it off to save those who refuse or can't change with the times.
