Quote of the Day.

Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature. …

If the next centennial does not find us a great nation … it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.

James A Garfield, 20th President of the United States, addressing the centennial of the Declaration of Independence, July, 1876.

  1. How true this is, just like Franklin's statement to a woman after the signing of the Constition. When asked." what has he given them", to which he replied." A republic if you can keep it.".

    Frankly, I don't think we are willing as a population to want to keep it anymore.
