Americans' Lack of Trust in Government is Well Earned

In the absence of real leadership on both sides of the political spectrum, we conservatives look to our nation’s past for inspiration. We find it. But we also find a great deal of sadness, when we realize how devoid of substance our elected leaders are today.

A feeble executive implies a feeble execution of the government. A feeble execution is but another phrase for a bad execution; and a government ill executed, whatever may be its theory, must be, in practice, a bad government.

-Alexander Hamilton-

Mr. Hamilton was speaking about how important it is to have a high caliber individual occupying the highest office in the land. We currently have a feeble occupant in the Oval Office, who is mocked and ridiculed at home and abroad. His “signature achievement,” if it can be called that, has been based on a series of distortions, exaggerations, and bold faced lies. The current “OCCUPIER” of the people’s house has proven Mr. Hamilton’s words correct, a feeble executive makes for bad government.  Resident Obama is certainly the poster child for this quote.
