The principles laid forth in our Constitution were constructed by a generation whose spiritual and brain power have yet to be matched since Andrew Jackson.
All the principles were derived from the very same principles, like it or not, found in both the Torah as well as the Bible.
This makes our Constitution just as relevant now, and in the future, as when it was written and even more so during our Civil War as well as our wars of political ideology that has been going head-to-head since the early 60’s.
Our hugest mistake is having permitted character to be devalued for the sake of political unity — that has only led to more problems than it has resolved and we now find ourselves at a point where character is nearly no where to be found in those we have in not only our government but in those from whom we have to choose to elect.
We are at a precipice — and like all precipices, it will not end without making a huge commitment to move away from how we got here, or until we are consumed entirely by what we have permitted.
Families, communities and nations we once provided compassion no longer can find it — and our enemies are killing them without mercy, all because those whom we have elected can’t see beyond their party policies.
One of the greatest of characters that makes our nation great is compassion — and that is coming from very few candidates and is almost non-existent in matters of urgency in the halls of Congress.
We need to focus on things much greater than political party views as the differences will never be settled — we need to focus on what makes a difference irregardless of political affiliation just as our Founding Fathers, especially George Washington, had warned about.
Otherwise Ben Franklin will become a prophet as well as one of our greatest Statesman… as we will no longer be able to hold onto this Republic once so revered, feared, bold, and full of character…
