George Washington On How The Constitution Is Deficient When Challenged By Corrupted Morals

by

“No compact among men … can be pronounced everlasting and inviolable, and if I may so express myself, that no Wall of words, that no mound of parchment can be so formed as to stand against the sweeping torrent of boundless ambition on the one side, aided by the sapping current of corrupted morals on the other.”

–George Washington, draft of first Inaugural Address, April 1789

Do you see any parallels of what is going on in our country today?  Do you see all the instances of our leaders simply brushing aside the Constitution when it conflicts with what they want to do?  How can our nation survive if we allow our leaders to continue to do this?  I don’t think we can.  The only thing that remains is how long it will take us to implode.  God help us.
