The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

“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 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 corrupted; 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 squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the citizens will be violated or disregarded. If a republican government 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.” – Noah Webster, History of the United States

  1. This is a quote to keep fresh in your mind as you vote, regardless of the party.
    As it has been widely disregarded since Mr.Webster first uttered those words, that good folks, has brought us to the precipice we teeter upon today. Vote wisely. Long live our Republic!
