Founders' Daily Quote(s):5/31/10-6/4/10

Monday, May 31, 2010.
"Our own Country's Honor, all call upon us for a vigorous and manly exertion, and if we now shamefully fail, we shall become infamous to the whole world. Let us therefore rely upon the goodness of the Cause, and the aid of the supreme Being, in whose hands Victory is, to animate and encourage us to great and noble Actions - The Eyes of all our Countrymen are now upon us, and we shall have their blessings, and praises, if happily we are the instruments of saving them from the Tyranny mediated against them. Let us therefore animate and encourage each other, and shew the whole world, that a Freeman contending for Liberty on his own ground is superior to any slavish mercenary on earth." --George Washington, General Orders, 1776

This is so correct, and we now once again have our eyes ye. Do well, or else...

"It is an object of vast magnitude that systems of education should be adopted and pursued which may not only diffuse a knowledge of the sciences but may implant in the minds of the American youth the principles of virtue and of liberty and inspire them with just and liberal ideas of government and with an inviolable attachment to their own country." --Noah Webster, On Education of Youth in America, 1790

Did you intend for the Supreme Court to kick God out of our classrooms? No, I did not think so. Where else from hence virtue flows?

"The best service that can be rendered to a Country, next to that of giving it liberty, is in diffusing the mental improvement equally essential to the preservation, and the enjoyment of the blessing." --James Madison, letter to Littleton Dennis Teackle, 1826

I'm positive he was referring to opportunity and NOT socialism.

Thu. 6/3.
"A popular Government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives." --James Madison, letter to W.T. Barry, 1822

Ah, this reminds me of the saying, "The pen is mightier than the sword." Yet this part about ignorance is so ever growing in our media. If a Democrat tells them something, they write it down as if they did research. If they ask a question of a Republican (Conservative) who gives them a straight answer and the place where they can look up the information, they consider this an afront! Nothing a Consevative has to say can persuade the media, but do not hesitate to speak the truth anyway. People who know the truth will read what they write and question it to the point of taking their money elsewhere! This is what I call the free market. :)

Fri. 6/4.
"What spectacle can be more edifying or more seasonable, than that of Liberty and Learning, each leaning on the other for their mutual & surest support?" --James Madison, letter to W.T. Barry, 1822

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.
