President James Garfield’s words back in 1877 still ring true today……
“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.
“If the next centennial does not find us a great nation … it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.”

Are YOU more prone to point YOUR finger at some politician or to go and look at YOURSELF in the mirror and point YOUR finger at the person YOU see?
I have a computer, a printer and paper, envelopes and stamps. If I fail to write letters to those who represent me in Washington, DC and my State Capital, asking them to be intelligent, brave and pure of heart, I have no one to point a finger at but ME.
GOD REACHES INTO THE DEEPEST PLACES IN YOUR HEART AND GIVES YOU HIS PEACE!!
