Howard J. Phillips died on April 20th, yesterday his mortal remains were laid to rest.
Three time presidential candidate, founder of the Conservative Caucus, leader of the moral majority, founder of the United Tax Payers alliance and Constitution Party, Howard Phillips was not only one of the most courageous men of his generation, but also one of the few who stood for right no matter what it cost them. As appointee under President Nixon, he sought to shut down the Department of Economic Opportunity, and worked tirelessly against oppression from the government.
Just as no statue can fully embody its model, so no tribute can fully embody a great man. Howard Phillips has passed out of this world into a better one, while we grieve, we also remember and are inspired. May God make us such men of principle, may we not waver, may we not falter.
Through His Strength We Will Conquer,
Andrew C. Abbott
