"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."

Will is one of the top political commentators today.  Instead of just blabber, he is offering a solution.

He and guys like him get called "liberals" by the ridiculous radical right, btw.

pshaw!
You'll never do anything about this lawless president until you have enough lawmakers that are willing to put the interests of this nation over their own political careers.
That we do not have.

I doubt we'll see that again.
Not at the Congressional level, in any case.

This will have to come from the States, and from the people. Bobby Jindal recently hinted as much, though his position probably restrains him from expressing fully what he had in mind.

Without that, there will be no check on the lawlessness.

I think George Will has become a much more provocative and interesting commentator since he left ABC and joined Fox.  Why that is I can't say, but I am certain I am not the only one who has noticed.

Fact is I never watch ABC or any of the other alphabets so I'll take your word on it. I still do watch FOX, on occasion.

That's like saying the mafia should become priests to put their own interests aside.
I would say there is a better chance that the mafia will take over the Vatican.
