Let's adopt the following two amendments to the U.S. Constitution:

"The Congress shall have the power to declare war, and this time we
really do mean it."

"No person shall be denied life, liberty, or
property without due process of law, and this time we really do mean
it."




THE BILL OF NO RIGHTS

We, the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone
get along, restore some resemblance of justice, avoid any more riots, keep
our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of
debt-free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren,
hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense
guidelines
for the terminally whiny, guilt-ridden, delusional. We hold these truths to
be self-evident: that a whole lot of people are confused by the Bill of
Rights and are so dim that they require a "Bill of NO Rights."

ARTICLE I:
You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV or any other form of
wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is
guaranteeing anything.

ARTICLE II:
You do not have the right to never be offended. This country is based on
freedom, and that means freedom for everyone -- not just you! You may leave
the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion, etc., but the world
is full of idiots, and probably always will be ... and like the rest of us
you need to simply deal with it.

ARTICLE III:
You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you stick a screwdriver
in
your eye, learn to be more careful; do not expect the tool manufacturer to
make you and all your relatives independently wealthy by telling them they
didn't warn you not to stick the screwdriver in your eye.

ARTICLE IV:
You do not have the right to free food and housing. Americans are the most
charitable people to be found, and will gladly help anyone in need, but we
are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after generation of
professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation of
another generation of professional couch potatoes.

ARTICLE V:
You do not have the right to free health care. That would be nice, but from
the looks of public housing, we should be wary of public health care or
public anything.

ARTICLE VI:
You do not have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap,
rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don't be surprised if the rest of
us want to see you fry in the electric chair (yes, capital punishment).

ARTICLE VII:
You do not have the right to the possessions of others. If you rob, cheat or
coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don't be surprised if
the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where you still
won't have the right to a big screen color TV, pool tables, weight rooms or
a
life of leisure.

ARTICLE VIII:
You don't have the right to a job. All of us sure want you to have a job,
and
will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take
advantage
of the opportunities of part time jobs, education and vocational training
laid before you to make yourself useful.

ARTICLE IX:
You do not have the right to happiness. Being an American means that you
have
the right to PURSUE happiness--which by the way, is a lot easier if you are
not encumbered by an overabundance of idiotic laws created by those of you
who were confused by the Bill of Rights.

ARTICLE X:
This is an English speaking country. We don't care where you are from. We
welcome you here. English is our language and like the one you left behind,
w
e also have a culture. Learn it or go back to the country and the living
conditions you were fleeing.

25 Rules For Being A Good Republican

1) Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you are
millionaire conservative radio jock, which makes it an "illness" and needs
our prayers for your "recovery".

2) You have to believe that those privileged from birth achieve success all
on their own.

3) You have to believe that the US should get out of the UN, and that our
highest national priority is enforcing UN resolutions against Iraq.

4) You have to believe that government should stay out of people's lives but
it needs to punish anyone caught having private sex with the "wrong" gender.

5) You have to believe that pollution is ok, so long as it makes a profit.

6) You have to believe in prayer in schools, as long as you don't pray to
Allah or Buddha.

7) "Standing Tall for America" means firing your workers and moving their
jobs to India.

8) You have to believe that a woman cannot be trusted with decisions about
her own body, but that large multi-national corporations can make decisions
affecting all mankind with no regulation whatsoever.

9) You have to believe that you love Jesus and Jesus loves you, and that
Jesus shares your hatred of AIDS victims, homosexuals, and Hillary Clinton.

10) You hate the ALCU for representing convicted felons, but they owed it to
the country to bail out Oliver North.

11) You have to believe that the best way to encourage military morale is to
praise the troops overseas while cutting their VA benefits.

12) You believe that group sex and drug use are degenerate sins that can
only be purged by running for governor of California as a Republican.

13) You have to believe it is wise to keep condoms out of schools, because
we all know if teenagers don't have condoms they won't have sex.

14) You have to believe that the best way to fight terrorism is to alienate
our allies and then demand their cooperation and money.

15) You have to believe that government medicine is wrong and that HMO's and
insurance companies only have your best interests at heart.

16) You have to believe that providing health care to all Iraqis is sound
government policy but providing health care to all Americans is socialism
personified.

17) You believe that tobacco's link to cancer and global warming are "junk
science", but Creationism should be taught in schools.

18) You have to believe that waging war with no exit strategy was wrong in
Vietnam but right in Iraq.

19) You have to believe that Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a
bad guy when Bush's daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney was doing
business with him, and a bad guy when Bush needed a "we can't find Bin
Laden" diversion.

20) You believe that government should restrict itself to just the powers
named in the Constitution, which includes banning gay marriages and
censoring the Internet.

21) You have to believe that the public has a right to know about the
adulterous affairs of Democrats, while those of Republicans are a "private
matter".

22) You have to believe that the public has a right to know about Hillary's
cattle trades but that Bush was right to censor those 28 pages from the
Congressional 9/11 report because you just can't handle the truth.

23) You support state rights, which means Ashcroft telling states what
locally passed voter initiatives he will allow them to have.

24) You have to believe that what Clinton did in the 1960's is of vital
national interest but what Bush did decades later is "stale news" and
"irrelevant".

25) You have to believe that trade with Cuba is wrong because it is
communist, but trading with China and Vietnam is just dandy.

25 Rules For Being A Good Republican

Liberal wetdream content snipped

To Be A Liberal:
You must believe the only real difference between a totalitarian state
like Cuba, where the government controls every aspect of your lives
and can lock you up for teaching your kids religion, and the United
States, where we can believe and say pretty much anything we want, is
just one of politics, not unlike Republicans versus Democrats.


You must believe while Bill Clinton's multiple affairs and lying under
oath about them didn't disqualify him for his office, Rudy Guiliani's
affair disqualifies him for the Senate. You must further believe that
while Clinton's affairs were solely between him, his wife, and his
God, Rudy's affair is a public issue.


You must believe that while fathers are not really necessary to a
child growing up in the United States, it is vital Elian Gonzalez be
with his father, even if this means sending him to Cuba where his
father will loose him at the age of 12 to government work camps.


You must believe that N.O.W., with a nationwide membership of less
than 100,000 and falling, represents all women; while Concerned Women
for America, a conservative women's group with higher membership, does
not.


You must believe that Jesse Jackson, who has no visible means of
support, is an excellent role model for blacks; while Clarence Thomas,
a Justice of the Supreme Court, is not.


Despite evidence such as the teacher at Columbine who was killed while
talking to the 911 operator on her cell phone, you must believe that
calling 911 is better than having a gun in your hand in similar
situations.


You must believe that news shows on the major networks which feature
one conservative against four or five liberals are balanced and fair,
while such shows on Fox News which feature equal numbers of
conservatives and liberals are biased toward the right.


You must believe that having Maxine Waters in government is a good
thing just because she is a woman and can bring a woman's point of
view to the process, while having Kaye Bailey Hutchinson in
government, who is a woman and can bring a woman's point of view to
the process, is a bad thing.


You must believe, despite the fact it has been verified by former
Soviet officials, that Ronald Reagan's defense spending which forced
the Soviets to try and keep up leading to them bankrupting themselves,
had absolutely nothing to do with the collapse of the Soviet Union,
and that it was all done by Gorbachev who didn't want it to collapse
in the first place.


You must believe that American companies operating overseas, who pay
their workers three to four times the average wage for the countries
average, are evil and exploiting the workers who bless the day the
company came to town.


You must also believe that every economy in the world operates at the
same level as our own, so that to pay these people less than you would
pay workers here, where the cost of living is significantly higher, is
somehow wrong.


You must believe that government mandating benefits for workers will
not affect the cost of the products you buy, and that if the price
goes up it's only because the company executives are greedy, and not
at all the result of costs going up. Further, you must believe that
the main purpose of private industry is not to make a profit, but to
provide jobs and fund social programs for the government.


You must believe that a company executive, getting oral sex in his
office from an employee is sexual harassment, while President Clinton
getting oral sex in his office from an employee is not anyone's
business.


You must believe that two Democrats taping Newt Gingrinch's cell phone
call when they had no reason to is perfectly fine and legal, while
Linda Trip taping Monica Lewinski's calls to protect herself is bad
and she must be punished for it.


You must believe that handing out condoms to kids in school, even
against the express wishes of their parents, is an acceptable exercise
of government power, but that posting the Ten Commandments will
somehow lead children into error.


You must believe just seeing Joe Camel in a magazine or on a billboard
will entice kids into smoking, while seeing graphic displays of
violence in movies will have absolutely no effect.


You must believe success is only a matter of luck, and that hard work
and talent have nothing to do with it.


You must believe that making gun ownership illegal will lead to the
disappearance of all guns, but making abortion illegal will result in
millions of "back-alley" abortions.


You must believe that the Second Amendment is the only one that
doesn't refer to an individual right.


You must believe that the First Amendment allows you to say anything,
unless it can be categorized as "hate-speech".


You must believe that coporations actually pay taxes, instead of
simply building them into their costs. You must also believe that any
tax which applies equally to everyone must be "unfair".


You must believe that the armed forces are evil, yet demand military
intervention for every little foreign dispute where one side manages
to produce an effective enough PR campaign.


You must believe that a woman never lies about rape or sexual
harassment, unless the accused is a pro-abortion Democrat, in which
case, the accuser is a "slut" or "trailer-park trash".


You believe that a liberal saying that he or she will take
responsibility for something is enough to excuse any wrongdoing. A
conservative, however, must be burned at the stake for any perceived
wrongdoing, regardless of whatever steps are taken to rectify the
problem.



" ..The world has gone crazy. Guess I'm showing my age...
I think it dates from when we started looking at virtues
as funny. It's embarrassing to speak of honor, integrity,
bravery, patriotism, 'doing the right thing', charity,
fairness. You have Seinfeld making cowardice an acceptable
choice; our politicians changing positions of honor with
every poll; we laugh at servicemen and patriotic fervor; we
accept corruption in our police and bias in our judges; we
kill our children, and wonder why they have no respect for
Life. We deny children their childhood and innocence- and
then we denigrate being a Man, as opposed to a 'person'. We
*assume* that anyone with a weapon will use it against his
fellowman- if only he has the chance. Nah; in our agitation
to keep the State out of the church business, we've
destroyed our value system and replaced it with *nothing*.

25 Rules For Being A Good Republican

Fourteen Commandments of the Religious left
Thou shalt not have no other god except thyself; after all, it's thy
self exteem that counts. If thee don't love thee who will.

Thou shalt not make any graven image out of any substance which can
not be recycled.

Thou shalt not take the name of liberals in criticism including
feminists, racial minorities, or any person who thinks he is a victum
of America.

Remember the anniversaries of Roe V Wade and Anita Hills testimony
before the Senate Judiciary Committee and keep them holy.

Honor thy mother if she's disfunctional it's thy fathers fault.

Thou shalt not kill. With these exceptions; life under the second
trimester and those opting for medically assisted suicide.

Thou shall not commit adultery, unless thou aspire to high political
office, use a condom, or thou cannot help it.

Thou shall not steal, unless thou art disadvantaged or upset with a
California jury verdict.

Thou shalt not bear false witness, unless thou art discussing the
history of the 1980's are campaigning for office, or can afford good
legal council in the event thou art discovered and can ask the
American people to pay thy legal bills.

Thou shalt not covet, thou shalt not desire, thou shalt not desire
anthing. Unless thou art the victum of gender related oppression or
art still angry with Reagan's tax cuts.

Always hide the truth about thyself.

Never admit who or what thou really art.

Always blame someone else for what thou doest even so far as to blame
society.

Thou shalt oppose all punishment.

25 Rules For Being A Good Republican




1. At the most basic level, the liberal is an adolescent forever in
search of a world without moral consequence.

2. Freedom from moral consequence can only be secured by a
collectivist, totalitarian state.

3. The liberal religion reveres the twin gods of genitals and
government, and is overseen by a priesthood of psychologists.

4. "Freedom" to the liberal is strictly freedom of the genitals.

5. All non-sexual individual freedoms are despised by the liberal
because they demand moral responsibility.

6. The fundamental power struggle of the liberal is individual v.
collective. The individual must be relieved of all power in favor of
the collective.

7. Individualism demands moral responsibility. Collectivism hopes to
eliminate the need for moral responsibility.

8. The U.S. Constitution - specifically the individualistic Bill of
Rights - is the enemy of the liberal.

gaurantor and promoter of individualism in the world.

- serve no relevant purpose other than the promotion of collectivism.

moral consequence.

12. The basis of psychology is the elimination of moral
responsibility.

13. The liberal must create an atmosphere of crisis and fear to
justify collectivist oppression.

14. Any religious person who believes or promotes moral consequence is

destroy individual parental rights - public schools, child abuse
agencies, pediatric associations, etc..

18. The liberal applauds the imprisoning of homeschooling parents who
dare to raise their children outside the control of collectivist
public schools.

19. Private ownership of guns is the single greatest symbol of
individual power, and therefore despised.

20. All individual freedoms demand the responsible behaviour of the
individual, and therefore demand a moral code. Liberals despise
freedom because they despise morality.

21. The liberal loves Bill Clinton because of who he is, not in spite
of who he is.

22. The liberal despises national sovereignty which protects
individual freedoms.

23. The liberal promotes international governments (UN, EU, etc.)

world, and is obsessed with the centralized control of all human
activity and thought.

25. "Multi-culturalism" is the code world for a single, oppressive,
collectivist culture.

26. Liberals speak often of tolerance, but only tolerate liberals.

27. The liberal seeks to criminalize any speech which promotes
morality or individualism as "hate speech".

28. Environmentalists lie as a matter of course.

anyone who dares to disagree.

30. When possible, liberals opress anyone who questions their beliefs.

child.

32. Liberals seek the sexualization of children and the normalization
of pedophilia, all in the pursuit of genital freedom.

33. In the liberal mind, your freedom is their oppression.

34. Private property and individual wealth is integral to
individualism, and the enemy of the liberal.

35. The liberal hates you.

36. The liberal seeks to replace a moral world view with an emotional
world view.

37. The liberal typically chooses a career which produces nothing of
value - lawyer, bureaucrat, "activist", etc. - and uses government to
extract the wealth of others.

38. Liberal programs enrich liberals and do little to help the poor.

39. The liberal despises masculinity as a symbol of individual power.

40. Feminists groups are about lesbianism and socialism, not equal
rights for women.

41. Liberals are perfectly willing to destroy you financially, remove
your children, and imprison you for what you believe.

42. Liberals fear technology and change - because neither can be
centrally controlled.

43. Liberals are not obsessed with sex, but with promiscuity.
Promiscuity is the dominate theme of the liberal media culture.

politics is also their religion.

50. Liberal activities are all about ego - to demonstrate "I care more
than you do" without really helping anyone.

51. Whenever a liberal expresses concern "for the children", they are
using and targeting children to expand promiscuity, collectivism, and
their own pocketbooks and egos.

52. Because collectivist politics is their only morality, liberals
have no problem with deceit, oppression, or violence in their pursuit
of collectivism.

53. Liberals are elitests who exempt themselves from the oppressive
rules they impose on the general population.

54. Liberals howl if a transvestite or convicted felon is even
slightly offended, but openly bash Christians.

55. Liberals dream of a return to a centralized, 1940's urban
environment. We all ride the bus from a small, dirty, big city
apartment to an 8-5 union job.

56. Liberals believe that wealth is static - anyone who makes money
must be stealing it from someone else.

57. Liberals claim to be against violence, but makes excuses for

little for the victims.

59. Animal Rights activists despise humanity.

60. Liberals believe that passing religious values to children is a
form of child abuse.

61. Liberals use moralistic tones and catch-phrases like "social
justice", but their only moral is the accumulation of power 62.
Liberals ideologies tend inevitably towards world-wide
totalitarianism.

63. Liberals are never satisfied with the power they have gained over
the lives of individuals - they must control every thought and detail
of human activity.

all solutions are collective.

65. Liberals are humourless bores.

66. Bill Clinton raped Juanita Broaderick. Liberals don't care.

67. Bill Clinton used the IRS to oppress conservative political
speech. Liberals admire him for it.

68. Scientists are obsessed with "life on other planets" to confirm
the full theory of evolution. The alternative terrifies them.

69. Liberals are forever in search of a religion (New Age, pagan,
Unitarianism, etc.) which smiles on promiscuity.

70. Liberals despise the Pope because he refuses to compromise on
abortion, birth control, and divorce. All three positions discourage
promiscuity.

71. Better that millions of Africans die in the agony of AIDS, and
fortunes wasted on cures that don't work, than one liberal breath
discouraging promiscuity.

72. A full-time mother enrages a liberal.

73. Liberals admire the Chinese forced abortion policy.

74. Twenty years after spectacularly successful airline deregulation,
liberals still whine about it because they are obessed with
collectivism, and they are elitests who don't like flying with the
middle class.

75. Human life is cheap in the liberal world.

76. Liberals are Puritans - pompous, uptight, and legalistic. They
crave a bland, monotholic culture where dissent is oppressed by
criminal law.

77. Liberals cannot conceive of a solution to a problem which does not
involve government.

78. Hillary's Village is a totalitarian state.

79. The EU is all about socialism.

80. Given the chance, liberals would ban the Bible as "hate speech".

81. Liberals view humans as monetary objects without moral motivation
(welfare, etc.) , but view inaminate objects (guns, profits, etc.) in
exclusively moral terms.

82. The Third Way is a new shade of lipstick on the same old socialist
pig.

83. In Hillary's Village, parents are the child-rearing problem, not
the solution.

84. Liberals supported the return of Elian Gonzalez because they
admire Castro's collectivist island prison.

86. Liberals despise the death penalty as the ultimate statement of
moral and individual responsibility.

87. Anyone who criticizes any aspect of homosexuality is hysterically
accused of "homophobia" and "latent homosexuality".

88. Environmentalists have evolved into pagans who worship rather than
"protect" nature.

89. Modern art is obsessed with hatred for morality and Christianity.

90. The majority of US universities despise intellectual freedom.

91. Liberals are obsessed with the elimination of risk because risk is
integral to freedom and personal responsibility.

92. Liberals create child abuse witchhunts, and often send innocent
parents to prison in child abuse cases, to justify their destruction
of parental rights.

93. Liberal bureaucrats oppress conservatives and Christians whenever
possible.

94. Liberals are nasty, violent thugs.

95. Better thousands of women die in the agony of breast cancer, than
one liberal breath revealing the link between breast cancer and
abortion.

96. A liberal would sooner pull out his own teeth with a pair of
pliers than cut a tax.

97. Liberals have never really given up on Marx.

98. Pedophilia is a big part of homosexual culture.

99. Liberals dream of a massive network of government social workers
who control individual families in detail.

100. The goal of the United Nations is world-wide totalitarianism.

101. The primary tool of environmentalism is paranoia based on
falsehood.

25 Rules For Being A Good Republican


The Hypocritic Oath
June 12, 2001
It's The Pitts By Lee Pitts
I swear an oath on my honor as a hypocrite that...
I will cuss cows but eat beef, blast miners but wear jewelry and drive
a car but condemn oil companies. I don't want trees cut for any
purpose other than to provide the lumber for my next house. As a
Hollywood celebrity I assert my God given right to sire at least four
children by three different wives and then protest about
overpopulation in the world.

I will put fish first by saving the sucker and salmon, but not the
farmers and ranchers who feed me. I demand that politicians and
federal judges in Washington save all endangered species, except the
small business man. I feel government is imminently qualified to
micro- manage nature, after all, look what a smashing job they've done
with the IRS, EPA, USDA, FBI, BLM and assorted other alphabet
agencies.

As a self-righteous hypocrite it is my duty to celebrate Earth Day
with barbecues and parades and by leaving tons of trash behind. I
demand that feedlots and farms stop polluting our ground water. That
privilege should be preserved for me every time I flush the contents
of my toilet into a septic tank or the ocean.

I want to relocate grizzly bears and wolves to the West but not in my
big-city backyard. After all, people live here! I give my permission
for mountains lions to eat lambs but if a lion eats my dog or cat I
demand the abominable beast be shot on sight.

I will cuss oil companies on talk radio and stand in the way of their
drilling more wells while sitting in my gas guzzling SUV with the
engine running. I will write letters to the editor on my computer
castigating utility companies for not providing enough electricity. At
the same time I will send money to green groups who want to tear down
hydroelectric dams and stand in the way of any new power producing
projects.

I avow at the next cocktail party I attend while smoking a cigarette
and sipping a martini that I will sue the tobacco companies for
causing my lung cancer.

Although I have never personally milked a cow or grown vegetables in a
garden I demand to have a say on how farmers and ranchers do it. As a
pompous hypocrite I demand that water, herbicides, and pesticides be
taken away from farmers immediately, but I don't want it to affect the
price, quantity or quality of the food I buy in the store. It is my
strongly held conviction that we should ban all pesticides, except the
can of bug spray I use to kill ants and other unwanted bugs in my
home.

As a mealy-mouthed hypocrite I vow to help stop global warming by
watching the Discovery Channel on my giant sized television in my
air-conditioned house.

I assert that cattle pooping on our nation's grasslands is a national
disgrace while fertilizing my urban lawn with steer manure and urea is
simply good ecology. I will complain about fertilizer runoff from
farms but not from golf courses because I happen to be a golfer.

I will hound hunters in the woods because they use guns despite the
fact that hunting groups have increased habitat and wildlife numbers.
I demand that the government end all timber cutting or recovery in our
national forests but I'll cry like a singed coyote if the feds allow
wildfires to burn near my house.

As a card-carrying hypocrite I disavow the use of fur, leather, wool
and all animal by-products, except the ones used in medicine that
might save my life. I demand labels be placed on all food products but
not on a rock album that endorses killing cops.

Finally, as an arrogant and self-serving hypocrite I firmly believe
that rural folks have done a terrible job of taking care of the
countryside and they must do a better job because that's where I want
to live or visit someday when I can escape the pollution, crime, and
insanity of the barren big city in which I currently reside.

Rush's 35 Undeniable Truths

There is a distinct singular American culture - rugged individualism
and self-reliance - which made America great.

The vast majority of the rich in this country did not inherit their
wealth; they earned it. They are the country's achievers, producers,
and job creators.

No nation has ever taxed itself into prosperity.

Evidence refutes liberalism.

There is no such thing as a New Democrat.

The Earth's eco-system is not fragile.

Character matters; leadership descends from character.

The most beautiful thing about a tree is what you do with it after you
cut it down.

Ronald Reagan was the greatest president of the twentieth century.

The 1980s was not a decade of greed but a decade of prosperity; it was
the longest period of peacetime growth in American history.

Abstinence prevents sexually transmitted disease and pregnancy - every
time it's tried.

Condoms only work during the school year.

Poverty is not the root ("rut") cause of crime.

There's a simple way to solve the crime problem: obey the law; punish
those who do not.

If you commit a crime, you are guilty.

Women should not be allowed on juries where the accused is a stud.

The way to improve our schools is not more money, but the
reintroduction of moral and spiritual values, as well as the four
"R's": reading, 'riting, 'rithmatic, and Rush.

I am not arrogant.

My first 35 Undeniable Truths are still undeniably true.

There is a God.

There is something wrong when critics say the problem with America is
too much religion.

Morality is not defined by individual choice.

The only way liberals win national elections is by pretending they're
not liberals.

Feminism was established as to allow unattractive women easier access
to the mainstream of society.

Follow the money. When somebody says, "It's not the money," it's
always the money.

Liberals attempt through judicial activism what they cannot win at the
ballot box.

Using federal dollars as a measure, our cities have not been
neglected, but poisoned with welfare dependency funds.

Progress is not striving for economic justice or fairness, but
economic growth.

Liberals measure compassion by how many people are given welfare.
Conservatives measure compassion by how many people no longer need it.

Compassion is no substitute for justice.

The culture war is between the winners and those who think they're
losers who want to become winners. The losers think the only way they
can become winners is by banding together all the losers and then
empowering a leader of the losers to make things right for them.

The Los Angeles riots were not caused by the Rodney King verdict. The
Los Angeles riots were caused by rioters.

You could afford your house without your government - if it weren't
for your government.

Words mean things.

Too many Americans can't laugh at themselves anymore.

25 Rules For Being A Good Republican



George Washington

The man who is known to all Americans as "first in war, first in
peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen," gave us much sound
advice on how to keep our independence and freedom. George
Washington's advice is part of our American heritage that should be
known to all our citizens.

#1 RELY ON GOD

When George Washington took the oath as first President of the United
States on April 30, 1789, he added this four-word prayer of his own:
"So help me God."

These words are still used in official oaths by Americans talking
public office, in courts of justice, and in other legal proceedings.
Washington's words show that he was a man who believed in asking God's
help in every part of our private and public lives.

During the terrible times of the Revolutionary War, Washington
repeatedly counseled his troops to put their faith and trust in God.

Here is one of his messages:

"The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether
Americans are to be, freeman or slaves; whether they are to have any
property they can call their own .... The fate of unborn millions will
now depend, under God, on the courage and conduct of this army ....
Let us therefore rely on the goodness of the cause and the aid of the
Supreme Being, in whose hands victory is, to animate and encourage us
to great and noble actions."

In his first Inaugural Address as President of the United States,
Washington reverently acknowledged our country's dependence on
Almighty God:

"It would be peculiarly improper to omit in this first official act,
my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the
universe who presides in the council of nations - and whose
providential aids can supply every human defect, that his benediction
may consecrate to the liberties and happiness of the people of the
United States, a government instituted by themselves for these
essential purposes."

After serving as our President during probably the most important two
terms in our history, Washington advised us again that religion and
morality are necessary for good government. In his Farewell Address on
September 19, 1796, he clearly said: "Of all the dispositions and
habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are
indispensable supports."

#2 HONESTY

George Washington was a man of great personal honesty. The famous
story about Washington chopping down the cherry tree, and admitting it
to his father with the words, "I cannot tell a lie," perfectly
illustrates the character of the Father of Our Country. In his
Farewell Address, Washington, having served our country in war and
peace, gave his advice that we as a nation should be bound by the same
rules of honor and honesty that should bind individuals. He said: "I
hold the maxim no less applicable to public than to private affairs
that honesty is always the best policy."

As part of his belief that our nation should practice honesty,
Washington urged that our Government always be honorable in money
matters. He urged our country to borrow as little money as necessary
and to avoid piling up a big debt. He realized that emergencies, such
as unavoidable wars, would require us to borrow from time to time; but
he urged that these debts be paid off as rapidly as possible.
Washington said that failure to do this means we will be making our
children pay the debts we ourselves should pay. Here are his words
from his Farewell Address:

"Avoid likewise the accumulation of debt, not only by shunning
occasions of expense, but by vigorous exertions in time of peace to
discharge the debts which unavoidable wars have occasioned, not
ungenerously throwing upon posterity the burden which we ourselves
ought to bear."

#3 RESIST POLITICAL PRESSURES

Washington was well aware of how politicians are subjected to
political and economic pressures which may persuade them to give up
their principles, or to favor one group over another. In the midst of
such pressures from all sides, Washington stood like a rock of
strength and advised us how to keep to a standard of truth and
justice. As President of the Constitutional Convention of 1787,
Washington gave this advice to his fellow Delegates: "If to please
the people, we offer what we ourselves disapprove, how can we
afterwards defend our work? Let us raise a standard to which the wise
and honest can repair; the event is in the hand of God." The men who
followed Washington's Advice produced the United States Constitution,
which has properly been called "the most wonderful work ever struck
off at a given time by the brain and purpose of man."

#4 FORMULA FOR PEACE

George Washington was not only "first in war," but also "first in
peace." He developed the best formula for keeping the peace that has
ever been devised by man: the formula of discouraging the enemy from
attack by making sure that he knows beforehand that America is ready
for war. In his Fifth Annual Address to Congress, given in
Philadelphia on December 3, 1793, Washington said:

"There is a rank due to the United States among nations, which will be
withheld, if not absolutely lost, by the reputation of weakness. If we
desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to
secure the peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising
prosperity, it must be known that we are at all times ready for war."
Washington's advice on how best to keep the peace is thus in two
parts: (1) we must be ready for war, and (2) just as important, the
enemy must know we are ready.

#5 PRESERVE THE CONSTITUTION Washington realized that as our country
grew, there would be "bad guys" who would try to seize powers they
shouldn't have and change the wonderful plan for American freedom and
independence set up by the Founding Fathers. On the other hand, he
knew that some changes in the Constitution would be necessary from
time to time. Washington advised us that these changes should be made
only in the way the Constitution provides - and not in any other way.
He said in his Farewell Address:

"If in the opinion of the people the distribution or modification of
the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be
corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution
designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this
in one instance may be the instrument of good, it is the customary
weapon by which free governments are destroyed."

Washington thus advised that we should be alert to protect the freedom
of the people against men who try to take too much power in an
unconstitutional way. Washington believed that "Government is like
fire a good servant, but a dangerous master."

#6 LIBERTY MUST INCLUDE RESPONSIBILITY As a schoolboy, Washington
wrote in his copybook: "Labor to keep alive in your breast that little
spark of celestial fire - conscience."

Washington had risked everything he had in the Revolutionary struggle
for liberty. But he knew that "liberty" does not mean license to do
anything without restrictions. True liberty must include
responsibility to conscience - to God and to country. In his Farewell
Address, he advised us to give full support to our new Government:
"Respect for its authority, compliance with its laws, acquiescence in
its measures, are duties enjoined by the fundamental maxims of true
liberty." #7 AVOID FOREIGN INFLUENCE Washington knew that European
nations had been constantly involved in one war after another. He knew
that their political and economic interests were not the same as ours.
He knew also that various foreign nations would try constantly to
extend their influence over the American Government and people.
Washington believed that the only way for the United States to grow
strong and keep her hard-won independence was to remain free from
European wars, problems, and influence. In his Farewell Address, he
said:

"History and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the
most baneful foes of republican government. " Washington predicted
that foreign propaganda would operate inside and outside our
Government. He warned that 'foreign influence' in our Government would
even trick Americans about whom we can trust. He said in his Farewell
Address:

"Real patriots who may resist the intrigues of the favorite are liable
to become suspected and odious, while its tools and dupes usurp the
applause and confidence of the people to surrender their interests."
#8 DON'T EXPECT FAVORS FROM NATIONS In advising us against becoming
entangled with foreign problems, Washington warned us against giving
favors to other nations in the hope of receiving favors in return. He
warned that we will be "reproached with ingratitude for not giving
them more," and we will have to "pay with a portion of our
independence" for placing ourselves in such a position. He said in his
Farewell Address:

"There can be no greater error than to expect or calculate upon real
favors from nation to nation. It is an illusion which experience must
cure, which a just pride ought to discard." #9 PATRIOTISM
Washington was one of our greatest American patriots, and he demanded
patriotism in the men who served with him in war and peace. Legend
tells us that the night he crossed the Delaware, he gave the famous
command: "Put none but Americans on guard tonight." Even though we
cannot find this quotation in his published writings, it accurately
represents his thinking. In his Farewell Address he advised all our
citizens:

"The name of AMERICAN, which belongs to you in your national
capacity,must always exalt the just pride of patriotism more than any
appellation."

#10 THANKSGIVING TO GOD Washington advised Americans to set aside a
day of public Thanksgiving to God for the great favors He has bestowed
on our nation. On October 3, 1789 Washington proclaimed the first
Thanksgiving Day - the first of a long series of presidential orders
that have remained part of American life down to the present:
"Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the Providence
of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits,
and humbly to implore His protection and favor, and whereas both
Houses of Congress have by their joint committee requested me to
commend to the people of United States a day of public thanksgiving
and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the
many signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an
opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their
safety and happiness, now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday
the 26th day of November next, to be devoted to the service of that
great and glorious Being, Who is the beneficent Author of all the good
that was, that is, or will be." Home
