Vice President Joe Biden was exactly right when he said as he campaigned in Iowa on Oct. 27, "Folks, this election is even more important than the two elections you elected Barack and me." With President Obama's approval rating tanking to 38 percent in September, I can understand why Biden is shaking in his boots.

The fact is that this election can serve for the 6 in 10 voters who are disappointed with the administration as a mega-loudspeaker and overarching referendum. As a way of showing the potential power of that vote, I want to share what America's founders told us.

This is what eight Founding Fathers want you to remember as you go to the polls and draw the curtain on that voting booth. (A special thanks goes to David Barton from WallBuilders for providing this information at http://www.wallbuilders.com/.)

Samuel Adams, organizer of the Boston Tea Party and signer of the Declaration of Independence, wrote: "Nothing is more essential to the establishment of manners in a State than that all persons employed in places of power and trust be men of unexceptionable characters. The public cannot be too curious concerning the character of public men."

John Adams, our second president, wrote: "We electors have an important constitutional power placed in our hands; we have a check upon two branches of the legislature, as each branch has upon the other two; the power I mean of electing, at stated periods, one branch, which branch has the power of electing another. It becomes necessary to every (citizen) then, to be in some degree a statesman, and to examine and judge for himself of the tendency of political principles and measures. Let us examine, then, with a sober, a manly ... and a Christian spirit; let us neglect all party virulence and advert to facts; let us believe no man to be infallible or impeccable in government, any more than in religion; take no man's word against evidence, nor implicitly adopt the sentiments of others, who may be deceived themselves, or may be interested in deceiving us."

Thomas Jefferson, principal author of the Declaration of Independence and our third president, said, "Should things go wrong at any time, the people will set them to rights by the peaceable exercise of their elective rights."

Alexander Hamilton -- chief of staff to Gen. George Washington, one of the greatest advocates of the U.S. Constitution and founder of the first American political party and our nation's financial system -- wrote, "A share in the sovereignty of the state, which is exercised by the citizens at large, in voting at elections is one of the most important rights of the subject, and in a republic ought to stand foremost in the estimation of the law."

John Jay, the first chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court and the second governor of New York, wrote, "Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers."

The quotes are all remarkable. Profound. John Jay stating that our nation is a Christian one, and should therefore select and prefer Christians as their leaders, is strong indeed.

 Noah Webster puts his finger precisely on the problem we have right now. "When a citizen gives his suffrage to a man of KNOWN immorality, he abuses his trust; he sacrifices not only his own interest, but that of his neighbor; he betrays the interest of his country."

We have been betrayed. By our own people. By those who voted BS in office, or allowed him to remain. He is in fact still there, and the betrayal continues unimpeded, uncorrected, accepted by the fact that it is not confronted at all, and no attempt is proposed other than by a study voiced by Ted Cruz.

Not only was the immorality of the man elected known, it was excused, even though the man openly declared his immorality while lying about it. He then appoints another immoral person, another liar, to act as his Sec. of State . And when that liar finally hangs it up he appoints yet another known liar as Sec. of State.

Melony, thank you for posting this.

Come on Dale, do you think we can change American citizens opinions when we have had 50 years of Marxist propaganda and a Liberal media that has supported this for decades? They are so into the Communist takeover that they use racism to support it with Al Sharpton. He hates his own people if not Marxist supporters and he says so! Yet he has his own show on Liberal media! We see them also call those telling facts as racist! Is this not typical of those that want to remove your freedom of speech?

Virgil. What do you mean, come on? When both you and I, and many others get support for views we hold from the founders of our nation, don't you think that worthy of a thank you for posting it?

I am not at all in disagreement with either of your comments here. Never have been. And no, I do not think we can change opinions. People must do that themselves. All we can do is provide facts to encourage it. Melony did just that. And I thanked her for it.

Next on the Liberal agenda, supported by the corrupt anti-American Liberal media is removal of parental rights! Your child will not be yours but will belong to the community!

We should all call what it is, radical Liberals in American media are as what was predicted,,, "Thinking themselves wise, they have become as fools, calling good as evil and evil as good!" They do this because of their radical support of a Communist takeover in the US and freedom supporting countries are watching! Should Americans make a statement for all freedom supporting countries with our vote? Should we come against illegal votes just as like stink on Obama's morning throne calls?

The Democrat Party has completely corrupted our government with decades of people of terrible character.  This had made it seem acceptable behavior, and caused others to follow suit, until we have what we now have. Unless we remove the Socialist Party, we won't be able to change it back.

Joe Biden is nothing more than Obama's POS lacky. He would do better to STFU.

Here in Washington state 2 of 3 senate and 4 of 20 house positions are unopposed, and they are all democrats ...I think the rinos have already voted a few months ago.

John Jay, the first chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court and the second governor of New York, wrote, "Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers."

William Paterson -- a signer of the U.S. Constitution, an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court and the second governor of New Jersey -- wrote, "When the righteous rule, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan."

William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania, noted: "Governments, like clocks, go from the motion men give them, and as governments are made and moved by men, so by them they are ruined too. Wherefore governments rather depend upon men than men upon governments. Let men be good, and the government cannot be bad. ... But if men be bad, let the government be ever so good, they will endeavor to warp and spoil it to their turn."

Noah Webster, a strong advocate of the Constitutional Convention and known as the "Father of American Scholarship and Education," advised: "In selecting men for office, let principle be your guide. Regard not the particular sect or denomination of the candidate -- look to his character. ... When a citizen gives his suffrage to a man of known immorality he abuses his trust; he sacrifices not only his own interest, but that of his neighbor; he betrays the interest of his country."

Follow the above advice and we'll vote for the right candidates and issues, as well as reboot our county, state and federal governments upon those who are worthy of our respect.

Enough said. Now, go vote, and encourage others to do the same!

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
