WELL-SAID & WELCOME ABOARD.
George Washington also said this:
"Cease, Sons of America, lamenting our separation. Go on, and confirm by your wisdom the fruits of our joint councils, joint efforts, and common dangers. Reverence religion; diffuse knowledge throughout your land; patronize the arts and sciences; let liberty and order be inseparable companions; control party spirit, the bane of free government; observe good faith to, and cultivate peace with all nations; shut up every avenue to foreign influence; contract rather than extend national connection; rely on yourselves only: be American in thought and deed. Thus will you give immortality to that union, which was the constant object of my terrestrial labors; thus will you preserve undisturbed to the latest posterity the felicity of a people to me most dear; and thus will you supply (if my happiness is now aught to you) the only vacancy in the round of pure bliss high Heaven bestows."
My God, to be in his presence during his 24 years towards/during our Founding! Has any man given as much towards all we hold dear? I don't believe so... yet, his wisdom is all that we could strive for in this battle for the soul of America, and our God-given Rights that were recognized by our Founders to transcend what we witness today in governance, (openly or otherwise) by tyrants who seek to subvert what our Founders and our Military have fought and shed their blood for.
Thanks for the welcome!
"We may be tossed upon an ocean where we can see no land nor, perhaps, the sun and stars. But there is a chart and a compass for us to study, to consult, and to obey. The chart is the Constitution." -- Daniel Webster
"On every question of construction, carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed." --Thomas Jefferson
