When man no longer wishes to acknowledge a standard outside of himself, his own ungoverned passions become the standard. This was the case with every failed system of Government preceding our own experiment in liberty. I know I am preaching to the choir, but if we let the lights of Christianity get blown out, our children will be slaves of the nations debt in the divided States of America.
Our second President, John Adams understood up close that the entire experiment in electing officials required a people who could govern themselves.”We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
