George Washington says: No TEMS today

No, I didn’t get a spectral visit last night, but I assume that most viewers of my daily show won’t be too disappointed if I take a day off while everyone celebrates the great man’s birthday.  Tomorrow at 4 ET, I’ll be back with Andrew Malcolm, unless that asteroid circles back to get us all.  Later this week, we’ll talk with Guy Benson, Mary Katharine Ham, Steven Crowder, and Duane “Generalissimo” Patterson.

Have a great holiday!

Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labour to subvert these great Pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of Men & citizens. The mere Politican, equally with the pious man ought to respect & to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with private & public felicity. Let it simply be asked 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?

And let us with caution indulge the supposition, that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure–reason & experience both forbid us to expect that National morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.

‘Tis substantially true, that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government. The rule indeed extends with more or less force to every species of Free Government. Who that is a sincere friend to it, can look with indifference upon attempts to shake the foundation of the fabric.

sarcasm> It’s obvious that Rick Santorum must have traveled back in time, and “brainwashed” George Washington.

I wonder how many other Founding Fathers he got to, before returning to the present? </sarcasm

Excellent quote, ITguy. : )
