Founders' Daily Quote: 16 Sept 08

"The freedom and happiness of man...[are] the sole objects of all legitimate government."

--Thomas Jefferson (letter to Thaddeus Kosciusko, 1810); Reference: The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, Lipscomb and Bergh, eds., 12:369.

The American Dream, the American experiment. What an ideal, what a divine resolve. Never before has any country ever endeavoured to aspire to such an eloquant goal, and they never will. Why not? It is unnatural for those who seek heights of great power ever considered sharing that power with those of whom he would have control over. In America, we have control over them. At least in theory...

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.
