Election 2012: George Washington Speaks

"No one can rejoice more than I do at every step the people of this great country take to preserve the Union, establish good order and government, and to render the nation happy at home and respectable abroad.

No country upon earth ever had it more in its power to attain these blessings than United America. Wondrously strange then, and much to be regretted indeed would it be, were we to neglect the means, and to depart from the road which Providence has pointed us so plainly; I cannot believe it will ever come to pass.

The Great Governor of the Universe has led us too long and too far on the road to happiness and glory to forsake us in the midst of it. By folly and improper conduct, proceeding from a variety of causes, we may now and then get bewildered; but I hope and trust that there is good sense and virtue enough left to recover the right path before we shall be entirely lost."
George Washington, June 29, 1788

Wise words from the God fearing, founding father of our country - on the importance of preserving our nation. It's uncanny how timely a message this actually is. We need to follow the example of our first President in thought, prayer and deed so that we may once again become the greatest and most respected nation on earth!  I urge every one of you to continue praying hard.
