I think Washington was the paragon of virtue. What a great, great man.

I managed to get today's FFQF on time today. This is a worthy topic and I look forward to reading your future posts.

Oh, this is excellent, Herky! He poses the question at the root of our problems, and I'm going to take the liberty of trying to put part of it into my own words:

Hasn't God connected the blessings of America to its willingness to uphold His moral and ethical principles? Will America fall because of its immoral and evil practices?

Based on today's vote in Congress, we are definitely on a slippery slope to tyranny.

Just as we want freedom without responsibility, so we expect God's blessings without obedience to Him.

Thank you for this. My Samuel Adams is posted here:

Thanks, all! And Jean, that's a great way to paraphrase it!

Hopefully my first post on the subject of liberty and virtue will be up soon.
