Some day her prince will come

Dear Editor:

Someday we will have a new President, and he will tell us when he makes his inaugural address that he finds it a privilege to be elected to this high office.

He will express appreciation for our Constitution as to its intellectual underpinnings, and for the limited powers given to each branch of government.

He will remind us that the Founding Fathers set it up this way because of their experience with King George, and thus wanted to protect future generations from such tyranny.

This new President will also be attuned to free market enterprise as the best way to prosper according to each individual's ambition and intelligence. He would respect the sovereignty of each person and expect him to obey the moral laws of God. As John Adams said "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other."

Consequently, this new President would repeal the abortion laws, and encourage the states to do likewise because they are fundamentally a case of murder, as well as a repudiation of the Declaration's "right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness."

This new President will remind us that the main purpose of Washington is to protect our liberties (a la The Bill of Rights), and to protect us from "enemies both foreign and domestic."

It is in our very genes to expect these principles from our elected officials; and if this change happens and we go back to what it really means to be an American, it can't come soon enough for me.
