Founders' Daily Quote: 18 Sept 08

"The bosom of America is open to receive not only the Opulent and respectable Stranger, but the oppressed and persecuted of all Nations and Religions; whom we shall welcome to a participation of all our rights and privileges, if by decency and propriety of conduct they appear to merit the enjoyment."

--George Washington (Address to the Members of the Volunteer Association of Ireland, 2 December 1783)

I agree. That is why we used to have a policy that if someone broke our moral codes or our laws, they were permanently escorted out of the USA...NEVER to return again. So what do we do now that our politicians are counting more on their votes than those of their constituents?

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.
