I was reflecting on the current political climate and the desires to "get back to normal" in America. To return to the '80's. The Greatest Generation. To our founding principles.
And as I thought of it, I thought - "It can't be done the way people are talking about it being done."
You see, the whole concept of America was the idea of men governing themselves. Restraining themselves. Being moral themselves.
You can't compel that. You can't pass laws to make that happen. You can't rally political action committees and raise campaign finances to bring that about.
And unfortunately.....that's what they are trying to do.
The only way we are going to return to the founding principles of America - the principles of self-governance that it was established upon - is if we choose to.
From Founding Father, John Adams: Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
