Will we pull Obama's teeth? Our founding fathers instructed us to chose men who were virtuous in private, How well do we know our candidates. They told us to chose men with high morals, how many have we elected in the past only to find they have more skeletons in their closet than most of us have forks in the silverware drawer. They told us not make these positions one of high pay, only of honor, or scoundrels would seek these positions. They told us elect modest thinking men, for those with large egos would bully and push their will unto the country and their opposition would demean them while wanting to have the same power themselves to pursuit their goals. Have we listened, is not the pay for these jobs way above average, is not the retirement program they have voted for themselves far better than most Americans enjoy? How many elected officials have legal problems, how many have and are facing ethics charges? How many actually have read and studied the constitution to know if they are are passing or proposing constitutional laws? De we really know the heart and mind of the candidates we have to chose from? I submit to you that the number of unqualified representatives, out numbers the the qualified. Why? There are several reasons, one we just don't pay attention, two, as Ben Franklin warned, when the people become corrupt, they only elect corrupt officials. You see, we are not living the standards needed to have a great working republic, therefore we can not or will not elect men and women with the standards to keep this great republic. Our Founding Fathers told us, plain and simple, only a religious, moralistic, virtuous people will be able to retain the principles that are needed for this Republic to survive. Are we going to pull his teeth, or just give him dentures?
The Founding Fathers also told us it was important to teach 3 things in our schools when they passed the Northwest Ordinance, 1,Religion, 2,Morality, and 3, Knowledge. Yes religion, a nondenominational religion that promoted 5 fundamentals. 1, There exists a Creator who made all things and mankind should recognize and worship Him. 2, The Creator has revealed a moral code of behavior for happy living which distinguishes right from wrong. 3, The Creator holds mankind responsible for the way they treat each other. 4, ALL mankind live beyond this life. 5, In the next life mankind are judged for their conduct in this one. This position was set forth in the Northwest Ordinance, which was voted on and passed by the same congress that approved the Constitution, the same year as they approved the Constitution. Washington re-emphasized this ordinance in his Farewell Address, both Franklin and Jefferson had a hand in its writing, and Samuel Adams stated that this group of basic beliefs which constitute "the religion of America is the religion of all mankind. So when Obama says we are not a Christian Nation, you know he does not know anything about the matter. This separation of Church and State only is to keep the state from telling us which Church we worship in.
