Thoughts on The Morning After


I've got a busy day today so y'all just get this quicky post today(I don't know if you should be relieved or upset by this. lolz).


I AM happy that I don't have to suffer through all the unsolicited phone calls and flyers in my mailbox telling me whom I should be supporting or voting for, for at least another almost 2 years.  8-)))

No matter who won it would behoove us to remember these words of George Washington from his farewell address.  During his first term as POTUS he saw the rise of opposing political parties in our country(the Democratic-Republican party vs. the Federalists).  The words he spoke 220 years ago are just as potent and apply even more so to our country in 2018.

"However (political parties)may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion."

If you have never read this finely crafted document it might be time you did.  
Ya'll can peruse the address HERE.

And like Forest Gump, that's all I have to say about that.
