This wise bit of information from our past…and admonishment about our present and future was sent to me by a visitor to my blog. It it is worth your consideration.

Thank you Chuck!

Tom,

I came across this and I think it is something everyone should think about.  It is amazing how  accurate this is, I wish I had said it but that honor goes to  former-President James Garfield, while a member of Congress, he issued this warning at the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1876.  History certainly can teach us important lessons if we would take the time to learn them.
 

“Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature.”
