Founding Fathers

Steve at Motor City Times has a great post today noting the similarities between today’s governmental encroachment on our freedoms, the bloated bureaucracy we deal with every day and the foreboding warnings from the father of our country.

I’ve written more than once on this very speech. George Washington was indeed a prophet and sayer of soothes.

As Steve points out:

On November 2nd, 2010, Americans will go to the polls for the most important mid-term election in years.  Politicians and professional punditry say this sort of thing every two years. However, things have changed.

With increasing frequency,  elected officials are acting less like representatives and more like members of a Junta.  Ask the Speaker of the House of Representatives where in the United States Constitution they get the authority to do X or Y and she scoffs at the question then arrogantly retorts with “are you serious?”

Yes, we are serious.

Damn skippy we are.

The founders studied these issues with an intensity we would do well to mimic and  strive to duplicate. Washington was prophetic in many things he spoke of in that speech. Almost every point he warned us of has come to pass.  As the Teacher points out in Ecclesiastes, “There is nothing new under the sun.” We would do well to remember this fact and to not discount the wisdom of the men who crafted this, the most unique and fair system of government ever conceived and implemented by man. So unique they believed as I do, that it was divinely inspired.

Steve has taken away several important points from Washington’s words that deserve your attention. Please take the time to read his reminder as to why we write and fight.
