To Conservatives, what is YOUR prescription for America socio-politically, socioculturally,
& socioeconomically? Give detailed answers.
John Adams said,
" Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other"
America can only work with a Christian peoples or at least a people with a Christian world view. The freedom's we hold dear will be abused if the people become corrupted.
In George Washington's farewell address he said this,
" reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle…Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.”
Washington knew our republic could not endure if Christianity did not have the encouragement of the state.
So as a conservative I would promote a non-sectarian Christianity along with its principles because without these foundations in place our nation will crumble as its beginning too now. A nation can't be free if its in bondage to depravity and sin.
We must return to following the Constitution and the limitations it has on the government so that our nation returns to a government by the people and for the people. We need to recognize the danger of government that exceeds its Constitutional limits. Its the people who must lead America not the government.
George Washington was under no illusions about the dangers of government, he said,
" Government is force; like fire it is a dangerous servant — and a fearful master.”
This was not a controversial stance then but it certainly would be now.
We must appoint judges who interpret the Constitution according to its original meaning and do not create law from the bench.
