Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves, therefore, are its only safe depositories. – Thomas Jefferson, 1781
Enlightened statesmen will not always be at the helm. – James Madison, 1787
I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. – John Adams, 1780
It is very clear that our founding fathers were fearful of government getting corrupted and too powerful. By any measure of evaluation, we believe our country is now at that point where government cannot be fully trusted. Samuel Adams went on to say that in order to have “solid and permanent foundation” we must have people with a “zeal for the honor of the Supreme Being”.
I have been in and around Government for the past 12 years and I can tell you without a doubt that we have many representing us who do not honor God and, care only about more power. This is why it is essential for Inspired Life to have a strong presence within government at every level. From school boards to city councils, to state and congressional legislatures, to city Mayors and state Governors, we want to inspire people to enter elected office and to inspire current officials with a “zeal for the honor of the Supreme Being”.
George Washington said, “The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the republican model of government..., are staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American People.” We want to inspire you to be an influencer in this continued experiment!
