A farewell that should never have been forgotten, but has been

Two hundred and twenty years ago this month the first President of this nation published his farewell address from his post as the leader of this nation.
George Washington for eight year had led this fledgling nation upon the beginnings of its many journeys, both good and bad. He witnessed firsthand the behavior and actions of his fellows in the growing political arena. He came to point out the import of two things that must be within politics:
“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked: Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice? And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.”
We witness today to those that “subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens.”
Per Mr. Washington they are not true patriots to this nation if they remove religion and morality, not only from the government but the politicians themselves.
If they are not patriots then what are they?
What is the definition of a patriot?
Patriot – showing love for your country and being proud of it.
So if someone does not love something they must hate it.
Hate – to have animosity, malevolence
So if someone hates their nation and wish to cause harm to befall it, they in truth are its enemies, traitors.
Yet today there are those in politics that are this nation’s enemy and they were placed there by the people of this nation. Why? Because these enemies lied to them. The enemy will always lie even to themselves if it allows them to achieve their goal, which is the destruction of this nation.
Mr. Washington in the preceding paragraph to the one above said this:
“It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration, to confine themselves within their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one, and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism. A just estimate of that love of power, and proneness to abuse it, which predominates in the human heart, is sufficient to satisfy us of the truth of this position. The necessity of reciprocal checks in the exercise of political power, by dividing and distributing it into different depositaries, and constituting each the guardian of the public weal against invasions by the others, has been evinced by experiments ancient and modern; some of them in our country and under our own eyes. To preserve them must be as necessary as to institute them. If, in the opinion of the people, the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed. The precedent must always greatly overbalance in permanent evil any partial or transient benefit, which the use can at any time yield.”
He saw through the politicians of his day that there was a chance that we would end up with the very government we now have. Where the man in the White House thinks he is greater, smarter and wiser than the rest. This is evil, which led to the first paragraph shown above. Which states only a TRUE patriot will adhere politically to a belief in God and the morals as supported within the Bible.
Any political groups or person that denies the existence of God and embraces immorality are the enemies of the very nation that was founded two hundred and forty here ago.
As long as God and the Bible continue to be trodden upon. Any hope for true liberty is lost.
The Johnson amendment must be revoked and those in the pulpit and upon the dais must be allowed to teach the importance of faith in God and the removal of immorality from this nation once again.
A sin must be called a sin and those in a political office must know and understand so that the dreams of the founders of this once proud nation will know that their efforts and blood were not wasted by the enemies that have been given power by the people to run this nation.
This also means that God and the Bible needs to be fully returned to this nation and taught. It must be allowed back onto all the channels of the TVs and heard upon the radio. For without God per George Washington there is no United States of America.
