"We the People of the United States, in
order to form a more perfect Union...do
ordain and establish this Constitution..."
On this July 4th, may we each remember that we are the present We the People...and must strive to make "...a more perfect Union." Let us take seriously that a pledge is "a formal promise to do something, i.e., the performance of obligation or duty." The obligation is so great because We the People...owe so much to so many.
We the People...are being torn apart by those who are using the political stage to promote their own agenda while masquerading as champions of freedom. Our primary problem is the erosion of the Nation's moral base. We have known the foundation of freedom for a long, long time. Aristotle, 384-322 B.C., said "Freedom only works in a culture committed to virtue." You cannot have a society any freer than We the People...are good. George Washington said in his farewell address, "It is substantially true that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government."
