The foundation for a free Constitution is Virtue
A few years back, I stepped out the front door of our 200 year old farm house in Goffstown, New Hampshire and took this photo which captured the essence of our upcoming July 4th BBQ near a three acre pond in our backyard. It was a great season in our lives and in our five years there we experienced more true friendships than at any other time. We love New England as it seems to remind us, to this day, of America's governmental roots that were established in the 13 original colonies. 

So, I leave you with this from a man named Jake MacAulay, a pastor who serves as the Chief Executive Officer of the Institute on the Constitution (IOTC), an educational outreach that presents the founders’ “American View” of law and government. He helps reveal an exquisite understanding of how allegiance to God will bring virtue as is also expressed in a letter by John Adams, in 1776, to his wife Abigail. 

Jake first says this... "Known to the world was the great Christian revival, “The Great Awakening” of the 1740’s. Christianity roared through the colonies and their diverse Christian denominations. Men were reintroduced to the fervent commitment to their Creator, practiced by their puritan and pilgrim ancestors. As mankind has witnessed all through time, religious (that is, Christian) revival precedes the greatest moves of sustained liberty to man. Man’s allegiance to his God and Savior will always produce virtue, which is the essential strength that can overcome tyranny." 

To use the words of John Adams in a letter to his wife Abigail in 1776... “The only foundation of a free Constitution, is pure Virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our People, in a greater Measure, than they have it now, They may change their Rulers, and the forms of Government, but they will not obtain a lasting Liberty. They will only exchange Tyrants and Tyrannies.” John Adams
