Our second President once made a profound and prescient statement.
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
This statement fits the sentiment of many constitutional conservatives in shock over the election results. Instead of any wonkish analysis or assigning blame to Republicans, let’s step back from politics and look at the larger cultural problem of a lack of moral indignation. Until and unless moral indignation makes a comeback we will not witness a triumph of good over evil. Some don’t even comprehend what moral indignation looks like.
Below is a video in 2009 of Harry Alford on the Bill O’Reilly show. Watch it and see what moral indignation looks like. Harry Alford is the leader of the Black Republican Chamber of Commerce. He is not a black conservative, but he does not suffer fools. Bill O’Reilly, just like the TV sitcom news anchor Ted Baxter, is completely clueless.
For this nation to be once again be comprised of moral and religious people is paramount. Natural law from the pain and suffering the dependency class have coming to them may facilitate the comeback of moral indignation.
