Calling all Americans

EDITOR:

Our economy limps and stumbles and it should be intuitively obvious to the most casual observer that we are restricted by over-regulation, over taxation and a general lack of usefirl common sense and morality in our governance. “Knowing the system” or “having experience” doesn’t necessarily equate to profitable governance or a people free from intrusive rules and regulations.

Noah Webster, (1758-1343), known as the Founding Father of American Scholarship and Education was, among many other achievements, author of The American dictionary, Law and the History of the United States. He wrote of our Republic “When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers, just men who will rule in the fear of God. The preservation of a republican government depends on the faithful discharge of this duty; if the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be comrpted; laws will be made, not for the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes; corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the laws; the public revenues will be violated or disregarded. If a republican fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect the divine commands, and elect bad men to make and administer the laws. Intriguing men can never be trusted.”

Let us be mindful of the importance of our vote. For the future of America, we urge you with all our hearts to cast your vote for individuals who have demonstrated unwavering moral integrity. History has proven that a larger government (local or federal) equates to less quantity and quality of personal choice and more opportunity for corruption. The Constitution is complete. The efforts of the Obama administration to dismiss and/or circumvent it should be a red flag for every American. Vote for candidates who seek to return our country founded on individual freedoms given by our Creator. Cast your vote for Romney/Ryan!
