Who do you think said this and do you agree?

Real change must begin at the individual level, with each person deciding that the special interests, the bureaucracies, and the forces of the past will not determine the course of the future. Real change has to start with families who don't want to see their quality of life decline even as they work harder to maintain it. Real change has to start with citizens who say to their families, friends, and neighbors that the time has come to insist that their politicians change or they will change their politicians.

  • I do agree. I want to believe that Newt Gringrich has CHANGED (for the better), but it will take more than his words...

  • Live it up, Newt worshipers. The scumbag asked his wife for a divorce when she was in the hospital dying of cancer. I don't care what that slime has to say about anything.

  • The statement is good, too bad Newt doesn't practice what he preaches. If he were to take to heart the words he says (oh, like I DO), he would follow through with responsible action and not hide behind blaming those who disagree with hum as an excuse for not making the changes he proposes. Change starts from within and Mr. Gingrich could use a good dose before he pontificates on what others should do.
