Samuel Adams and Barack Obama

“It is a very great mistake to imagine that the object of loyalty is the authority and interest of one individual man, however dignified by the applause or enriched by the success of popular actions. “

“Loyalty and Sedition” essay published in The Advertiser, printed in The Life and Public Service of Samuel Adams, Volume 1, by William Vincent Wells; Little, Brown, and Company; Boston, 1865Sourced fromhttp://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Samuel_Adams


I would hope that the adoring masses who filled Grant Park election night can absorb these piercing words. The dangers of “Cult” Obama can not be overstated. Left or right, all Americans should be bound to principles and convictions, not a person or party. The GOP better keep these words close to their hearts as well; men will let us down but principles based in truth stand unshaken in the winds of time. As we proceed toward an uncertain future let us not loose sight of the wisdom that proceeds us.
