Pass this along and bump it to your favorite freepers. I'm printing up some copies and giving them to my neighbors who have Obama signs in front of their houses; hopefully I can get past their force fields.

Below is from George Washington’s Farewell Address!

Warns against the party system.

“It serves to distract the Public Councils, and
enfeeble the Public Administration....

agitates the Community with ill-founded jealousies
and false alarms; kindles the animosity of one....
against another....
it opens the door to foreign influence and
corruption. thus the policy and the will of one
country are subjected to the policy and will of
another.”

Stresses the importance of religion and morality.

“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?”

On stable public credit.

“...cherish public credit.

One method of preserving it is to use it as
sparingly as possible...
avoiding likewise the accumulation of debt....
it is essential that you...bear in mind, that
towards the payments of debts there must be
Revenue, that to have Revenue there must be
taxes;
that no taxes can be devised, which are not..
.inconvenient and unpleasant...”

Warns against permanent foreign alliances.

“It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent
alliances with any portion of the foreign world...”

Washington was indeed a great man ("If he does that, he will be the greatest man in the world." - George III on hearing that Washington would refuse a crown if offered), but I'll bet a buck that Hamilton probably wrote this and many more of Washington's speeches.

The language sounds too Hamiltonian and I've read that as far back as the Revolution Hamilton often even wrote Washington's orders to the army, with Washington reviewing and doing some minor editing to make sure his intentions were conveyed.

We will never again see men of such stature who gave us our wonderful nation.

It would break their hearts to see the weasely, small minded pisants of today sitting in the seats of power, abusing their positions of trust, and destroying the country a little more every day.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Problem is these days there really aren’t any politicians in favor of limiting government in any way, shape or form.

I’m always in awe of the wisdom of the Dead White Guys. They knew history, and how it repeats itself. The few we have in congress who have half this wisdom, are shouted down and tossed aside.
