“In pursuing the various and weighty business of the present session I indulge the fullest persuasion that your consultation will be equally marked with wisdom and animated by the love of your country. In whatever belongs to my duty you shall have all the cooperation which an undiminished zeal for its welfare can inspire. It will be happy for us both, and our best reward, if, by a successful administration of our respective trusts, we can make the established Government more and more instrumental in promoting the good of our fellow citizens, and more and more the object of their attachment and confidence.” George Washington, Second Annual Message, December 8, 1790
George Washington made this statement after an entire year of working with the Congress. It is such a stark contrast from the statements that have recently emanated from the White House. What might our country be like if the President and Congress worked to establish measure that would promote “the good of our fellow citizens?” We, the People would indeed respond with growing confidence in and praise for our government and its elected officials. Please take a moment to send Washington’s statement to your elected officials on the local, state, and federal levels. A government which promotes the good in its citizenry is What IS Right With America!
