“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” John Adams – 2nd US President.
I would add to Adam’s observation that our Constitution not only was made for, but indeed requires a moral and religious people
Sad to say, but we are now living in the day and the culture of which Adams was warning about. The era of Barack Hussein Obama has greatly accelerated this slide into an immoral and irreligious nation.
Being in such a state, it is becoming ever more apparent that the Constitution Adams talked about is indeed wholly inadequate in the governance of this nation. Our leaders and potential leaders, in the persons of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are neither moral nor religious in the sense of the Judaea/Christian Biblical world view which spawned the then new nation and its constitution. Donald Trump seems to fall into that category as well, but such attributes have not (yet) been tested in the crucible of national leadership.
Could it be that George W. Bush will be the last moral and good President, as well as a good man?
Don Johnson – August 2016
