This truth was written with a ball point pen on a slip of paper by me and tacked to my wall to my left. I read these words of George Washington almost daily, and I am impressed deeply what this first president of the United States had to say and how profoundly true the words have been since he said them.
These words applied then just as they have over the two hundred years that have passed. Read them carefully, and then take of critical look our government and the people who work in it and for it.
What can they do for you? But, more importantly, what can they do to you?
“Government is not reason. It is not eloquence. It is force, and force like fire is a dangerous servant and a fearsome master.”
