Going Into The November Presidential Elections:

    Here are some quotes–from those FAR more learned than I–to consider when making your decision.

From President James Garfield (1831-1881; presidential term: March-September, 1881):

“Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress.  If that body be ignorant, reckless and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness and corruption.”

From Victor Hugo, French essayist, statesman (1802-1885):

“When dictatorship is a fact, revolution becomes a right.”

From William F. Buckley, Jr. (1925-2008), Conservative commentator, author; founder of the ‘National Review:’

“The best defense against a usurpatory government is an assertive citizenry.”

From Patrick Henry (1736-1799), 1st and 6th Governor of Virginia; attorney:

“The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government–lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.”

From Daniel Webster (1782-1852), leading statesman; U.S. Senator from Massachusetts:

“There are men in all ages who mean to govern well but they mean to govern.  They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.”

    The upcoming presidential election is the most important federal election since President George Washington was elected in 1788!!  The voter must personally ‘vet’ BOTH candidates, insuring that incomplete or non-existant media ‘vetting’ does not “rule-the-day!!”
