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

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
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...”

As we’re in a popular form of government, these words of Washington ring loudly. Sadly, some people now have lost all sense of objectivity.

Lose your morals, lose your compass, vote Socialist.

Does it amaze any of you as it does me that the phrase “those who do not study history are doomed to repeat it” rings so loudly in our current situation?

Maybe a criteria for election to office should include the study of US History and World History BEFORE anyone can run for office . . . and the person would need to make at least a B+ on the final exams to be nominated for an office.

That goes for Cabinet members too.
