A Most Solemn Trust

October 28, 2010 by  

Depending upon what the voting public does, Tuesday’s election could be a watershed event in American history, or it could be one more lost opportunity — and maybe the last opportunity.

If voters elect enough Constitutionally-minded candidates the political establishment will be turned upside down. Be sure you know who they are. As Samuel Adams said, "The public cannot be too curious concerning the characters of public men.”

There are a few that stand out: Senate candidates Rand Paul in Kentucky, Joe Miller in Alaska, Sharron Angle in Nevada and Christine O’Donnell in Delaware; and there are some good ones running for House seats as well. The Gubernatorial elections this year are likewise important, particularly if you value the 10th Amendment.

No, it won’t be enough to overturn the fascist system that’s been created over the last 90-plus years. But it will be enough to halt the slide into complete totalitarianism — if those newly-elected stay true to their principles.

Voting is an important duty for Americans who value freedom and liberty. Unfortunately, too many have neglected this duty for too long, either  by not voting or by taking the easy route and voting for a name they’ve heard for years or for someone based on the recommendation of friends and relatives. This has put us in the situation we find ourselves.

As you prepare to vote next Tuesday, remember these other words by Adams, "Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual — or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country."
