In the spirit of Independence Day, I thought it was worth noting that our very first President was an Independent. During his farewell address, President Washington famously stated,
“The common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it.”
As we approach the next election, please don’t become a blind slave to your party’s talking points. If you ever find yourself agreeing with 100% of ANY party’s platform, the only thing that is certain is that you are not applying enough critical thought to the most important issues this nation faces.
Happy 4th, please celebrate every day as Independence Day, and be careful to keep the founder’s views in mind as the 2020 rhetoric heats up.
