A Founding Father's Quote for Election 2012

"Human nature itself is evermore an advocate for liberty. There is also in human nature a resentment of injury, and indignation against wrong. A love of truth and a veneration of virtue. These amiable passions, are the "latent spark"... If the people are capable of understanding, seeing and feeling the differences between true and false, right and wrong, virtue and vice, to what better principle can the friends of mankind apply than to the sense of this difference?"

Quote by: John Adams
(1735-1826) Founding Father, 2nd US President
Source: Novanglus, 1775


The more that I see of the final four candidates for the Republican nomination for President of the United States, the more the stark contrast builds between these four men and the would-be dictator, Barack Hussein Obama.

I will admit, none of them are what we might call "the perfect candidate."  We know that no one is perfect this side of heaven.  Only Jesus Christ, in the Incarnation, was the perfect Man.  Christ is the way, the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father but by Him!

Our Founding Fathers knew this about Christ.  Most of them were true, Christian believers.  It is for that reason that they wrote the Declaration of Independence - the creed for America to live by.  However, it is also a fact that our Constitutional Republic can only survive if we are led by God-fearing leaders.  Not the fakes like we currently have in leadership from the Democrat party.

As far as the GOP nominees go, I like one candidate more than the others and even find one of the candidates scary concerning his foreign policy attitudes (especially regarding Iran).   But any one of them would be light-years better than Obama!!

John Adams teaches us from this historic quote. This election boils down to:

"...seeing and feeling the differences between true and false, right and wrong, virtue and vice."

What Obama has been presenting our nation is mostly falsehood.  He has wreaked havoc upon this nation with what is wrong in this world.  He has done what amounts to slapping We The People, our military, our economy, our freedoms, our liberty, and our sacred honor as a people with nothing but vice.

Vice - a word that isn't used much today. But it certainly fits when describing the current puppet pResident in the White House, as well as all of his cronies and puppeteers!

Take note of the definition of "vice."

Word Origin & History


"moral fault, wickedness," c.1300, from O.Fr. vice, from L. vitium "defect, offense, blemish, imperfection," in both physical and moral senses (cf. It. vezzo "usage, entertainment").

"Horace and Aristotle have already spoken to us about the virtues of their forefathers and the vices of their own times, and through the centuries, authors have talked the same way. If all this were true, we would be bears today." [Montesquieu]

We could all make ourselves busy from now until election day listing the evils of this administration. But what we should focus on now is how to get out of this mess and be sure that Obama is gone come January 20, 2013 (or maybe even sooner).

See some of the efforts to share the truth about Obama:

Doug makes several great points at the end of his post:

If Michelle wanted her audience to share the wealth with the less fortunate, why didn’t she ask them to give the $10,000 to charity instead of accept it on behalf of her husband’s campaign? After all, Team Obama will only burn that money trying to get re-elected so they can continue to pile up an unprecedented debt burden on the “less fortunate” they claim to want to share the wealth with.

I see the Obamas and their cronies sharing a lot of debt with Americans… but the wealth, they keep that between each other.

Christine said: “Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father but by Him!”

She also said: “. . . our Constitutional Republic can only survive if we are led by God-fearing leaders.”

My prayer this hour is for all God’s chosen people to desire God-fearing leaders and to have a passion to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength” (Mark 12:30, NIV).

One of the teachers of the law asked the Messiah what was the greatest command of all.

Jesus answered, "The foremost is, 'HEAR, O ISRAEL! THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE LORD” (Mark 12:29, NASB).

Thank you Christine… As we unite in ONE Spirit, may the Holy ONE of ISRAEL bless His people this day… Shabbat Shalom. (ss)

Thank you Susan!

In this election, as in all, I look for the candidate that demonstrates reverence for the One True God of the Bible and His Son, Jesus Christ!

When a person running for office does not believe that we are a nation born of God - through Judeo-Christian ethics, morals and values, then how could he or she govern America according to our own pledge of allegiance..."One Nation, Under God, Indivisible - with Liberty and Justice for All!"

We have seen the havoc wreaked by someone like Obama - who never fit the bill in the first place. A man who would vote against a bill to save babies who survived abortion (he and only 2 others in the Senate voted against the Born Alive Infants Protection bill) is NOT a Christian and certainly isn't following the Bible's admonition - Do Not Murder.

God help us if another globalist like Romney or a freak like Ron Paul (please see the update in original post about how these two are colluding together) get into office. The only two that I would trust are Rick Santorum or Newt Gingrich (in that order).

No man is perfect and both have made their mistakes in life. They have both needed to ask for forgiveness and repent. Don't we all???

I think THAT is more powerful than a phony (like Obama) who could never admit he is wrong.

I think that the public is attracted to Santorum because he fits in with what you wrote, Susan:

"My prayer this hour is for all God’s chosen people to desire God-fearing leaders and to have a passion to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength” (Mark 12:30, NIV)."

And we need more God revering people in both the House and the Senate, too! It is the only way that we can get our nation back to the Constitutional Republic envisioned by our Founders!

What a great post Christine! You are so right that the only perfect one is our Lord Jesus Christ; I couldn't agree with you more on every point. Anyone would be better than the fraud-in-chief.

Christinewjc said...

Thank you Steve!

As I read that quote, I thought that it fit really well when considering the choice we will have in November between ObaMARXIST (God forbid!) and the Republican nominee.

God help us in this all important Election of 2012!

That term "vice" fits Obama so well that it is actually frightening!
