LP Monday Message: Happy birthday, President Washington!

February 22, 2010

Dear Friend of Liberty,

As you might know, today is the 278th birthday of George Washington. I expect you agree that Washington had an excellent attitude about the office of the presidency (he had a pretty humble view of that office) and about government in general.

When I look at our current president, his policies and ambitions, I am of course very saddened by how far our country has descended from Washington's vision.

Here are a few quotes attributed to George Washington:

WASHINGTON - As the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) holds its annual conference, Libertarian Party Executive Director Wes Benedict offered the following statement:

I'm sure we'll hear an awful lot about "limited government" from the mouths of CPAC politicians over the next few days. If I had a nickel every time a conservative said "limited government" and didn't mean it, I'd be a very rich man.
