Think About It

Image result for Public virtue cannot exist in a Nation without private Virtue, and public Virtue is the only Foundation of Republics

“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?” George Washington (Farewell Address)

John Adams said, “Public virtue cannot exist in a Nation without private Virtue, and public Virtue is the only Foundation of Republics.” Self-government, or democracy, can only be perpetuated by the self-governed. Henry Ward Beecher said: “There is no liberty to men who know not how to govern themselves.” Goethe stated: “What is the best government? — That which teaches us to govern ourselves.” Self-governance consists of self-regulation of our behavior and passions.

This premise is as good as any other to delineate the two sides fighting for the soul of the country. Can you name a Democrat politician whom you feel has “private virtue”?

Can anyone name a national Republican politician who has public virtue?

I can name less than a handful of State Legislators who have it.
