Our union is now complete; our constitution composed, established, and approved. You are now the guardians of your own liberties.
My reason for picking this quote is two-fold:
1) I’m reading a Samuel Adams biography right now (Samuel Adams: A Life, by Ira Stoll). It’s very interesting, and I wanted to share a quote from this often overlooked but extremely important Founding Father.
2) We’re fully in the election season! Election Day is only about a week away (this being posted on October 26, 2020), and early voting is underway wherever it’s being held.
I voted this past Saturday, and I was thinking about how voting is the main way the Founders left us to be the guardians of our liberties. The problem is that if we vote for people who want to take those liberties away, we’re not fulfilling the task they left us – we are, in fact, despising the sacrifices they made and the work they did.
Hopefully those of us who still value liberty will win on November 3rd.Published in
