Noah Webster in his 1832 “History of the United States,” Chapter XIX “Advice to the Young,” #49:

49. When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers, “just men who will rule in the fear of God.” The preservation of a republican government depends on the faithful discharge of the Duty; if the citizens neglect their Duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made, not for the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes; corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the Laws; the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the citizen will be violated or disregarded. If a republican government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it my be because the citizens neglect the Divine Commands, and elect bad men to make and administer the Laws. Intriguing men can never safely be trusted.

This is why I am supporting and voting for Todd Akin for U.S. Senator from Missouri.

I know the Congressman and his family personally. They are the real deal. I believe Todd Akin would qualify for an endorsement from Noah Webster! He is pro-family, pro-faith, pro-liberty, and pro-Constitution, pro-limited government, pro-balanced budget–a fiscal and social conservative. I couldn’t give anyone a higher recommendation. Todd’s conservative record proves his principled approach to government as well as his commitment to principle over party. He understands the difference between conviction and preference and I trust him to represent my values and the values of Missourians. Todd Akin has my unconditional support in this important primary and election and I ask all Missourians to consider supporting his candidacy for the U.S. Senate.
