I SOUGHT FOR THE GREATNESS AND GENIUS OF AMERICA…….

At this time in the history of our great country, Election Year for a new president, I quote the words of someone much wiser than myself.

“I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers – and it was not there… “

“In fertile fields and boundless forests – and it was not there …”

“In her rich mines and her vast world commerce – and it was not there…“

“In her democratic Congress and her matchless Constitution – and it was not there.”

“Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. “

“America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.”

Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America 1805-1859
