"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Good article. Though the information contained therein is common knowledge to conservatives Bruce Thornton did leave out one interesting fact about the Kennedy legacy.

It was Jackie Kennedy who was the architect of 'Camelot', in fact she was the first to use that term in the first interview after Kennedy's assassination and fought to have that specific word kept in the body of the interview.

Jackie gave birth to and nurtured the Kennedy legacy. It was she who personally arranged for all of those glossy magazine photo shoots in his brief presidency and who carefully crafted her husband's (and incidentally, her own) media image. Nothing came out of the White House unless it first passed through Jackie Kennedy.
