Quote of the Day


“Nothing is more certain than that a general profligacy and corruption of manners make a people ripe for destruction.  A good form of government may hold the rotten materials together for some time, but beyond a certain pitch, even the best constitution will be ineffectual, and slavery must ensue.  On the other hand, when the manners of a nation are pure, when true religion and internal principles maintain their vigour, the attempts of hte most powerful enemies to oppress them are commonly baffled and disappointed.”  From the Dominion of Providence by Reverend John Witherspoon
