still undecided?

Posted in Uncategorized by Stephen Stonestreet on October 23, 2008

In selecting men for office, let principle be your guide. Regard not the particular sect or denomination of the candidate – look to his character. The scriptures teach that rulers should be men who rule in the fear of God, able men, men of truth, hating covetousness, it is to the neglect of this rule that we must ascribe the multiplied frauds, breeches of trust, and embezzlements of public property which tarnish the character of our country and disgrace government. When a citizen gives his vote to a man of known immorality, he abuses his civic responsibility; he sacrifices not only his interest, but that of his neighbor; he betrays the interest of his country.”

Noah Webster (1758-1843), quote in 1823
