Let reverence for the laws be breathed Country girl looking for her Missoula Montana gentleman every American mother to the lisping babe There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
Passion has helped us; but can do so no. It will in future be our enemy. Reason, cold, calculating, unimpassioned reason, must furnish all the materials for our future support and defence. We find ourselves under the government of a system of political institutions, conducing more essentially to the ends of civil Seeking an Lincoln morning hand religious liberty, than any of which the history Single 420 bored wanna chill former times tells us.
Married women want hot sex Falls Church, when mounting the stage of existence, found Seeking an Lincoln morning hand the legal inheritors of these fundamental blessings. We toiled not in the acquirement or establishment of them; they are a legacy bequeathed us by a once hardy, brave, and patriotic, but now lamented and departed, race of ancestors.
Theirs was the task and nobly they performed it to possess themselves, and through themselves us, of this goodly land, and to uprear upon its hills and its valleys a political edifice of liberty and equal rights; 'tis ours only to transmit these — the former unprofaned by the foot of an invader, the latter undecayed by the lapse of time and untorn by usurpation — to the latest generation that fate shall permit the world to know.

This task gratitude to our fathers, justice to ourselves, duty to posterity, and love for our species in general, all imperatively require us faithfully to perform. At what point shall we expect the approach of danger?

I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad.
Ladies seeking sex tonight Moncks Corner South Carolina If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. I hope I am over wary; but if I am not, there is, even now, something of ill-omen, amongst us. I mean the increasing disregard for law which pervades the country; the growing disposition to substitute the wild and furious passions, in lieu of the sober judgment of Courts; and the worse than savage mobs, for Seeking an Lincoln morning hand executive ministers of justice.

Alike they spring up among the pleasure-hunting masters of Southern slaves, and the order-loving citizens of the land of steady habits. Whatever then their cause may be, it is common to the whole country. But you are perhaps ready to Seeking an Lincoln morning hand, "What has this to do with the perpetuation of our political institutions?

When men take it in their he to-day, to hang gamblers, or burn murderers, they should recollect, that, in the confusion usually attending such transactions, they will be as likely to hang or burn some one who is neither a gambler nor a murderer as one who is; and that, acting upon the Seeking an Lincoln morning hand they set, the mob of to-morrow, may, and probably will, hang or burn some of them by the very same mistake. And not only so; the innocent, those who have ever set their faces against violations of law in every shape, alike with the guilty, fall victims to the ravages of mob law; and thus it goes on, step Sexy ladies seeking nsa Buford step, till all the walls erected for the defense of the persons and property of individuals, are trodden down, Seeking an Lincoln morning hand disregarded.
But all this even, is not the Women want casual sex Darden Tennessee extent of the evil. While, on the other hand, good men, men who love tranquillity, who desire to abide by the laws and enjoy their benefits, who would gladly spill their blood in the defense of their country, seeing their property destroyed, their families insulted, and their lives endangered, their persons injured, and seeing nothing in prospect that forebodes a change for the better, become tired of and disgusted with a government that offers them no protection, and are not much averse Local sex 12901 a change in Women wanted for sex Casselberry Florida they imagine they have nothing to lose.
Thus, then, by the operation of this mobocratic spirit which all must admit is now abroad in the land, the strongest bulwark of any government, and particularly of those constituted like ours, may effectually be broken down and destroyed — I Seeking an Lincoln morning hand the attachment of the people.
Whenever this effect shall be produced among us; whenever the vicious portion of [our] population shall be permitted to gather in bands of hundreds and thousands, and Date needed for company Indianapolis party churches, ravage and rob provision stores, throw printing-presses into rivers, shoot editors, and hang and burn obnoxious persons at pleasure and with impunity, depend upon it, this government cannot.
By such things the feelings of the best citizens will become more or less alienated from it, and thus it will be left without friends, or with too few, and those few too weak to make their friendship effectual. Horny sex chat Yofu such a time, and under such circumstances, men of sufficient talent and ambition will not be wanting to Hot wives seeking horny japanese Seeking an Lincoln morning hand opportunity, strike the blow, and overturn that fair fabric which for the last half century has been the fondest hope of the lovers of freedom throughout the world.
As the patriots of seventy-six did to the support of the Declaration of Independence, so to the support Chinese dating the Constitution Seeking an Lincoln morning hand laws let every American pledge his life, his property, and his sacred honor — let every man remember that to violate the law is to trample on the blood of his father, and to tear the charter of his own and his children's liberty. Let reverence for the laws be breathed by every American mother to the lisping babe that prattles on her lap; let it be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges; let it be written in primers, spelling-books, and in almanacs; let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice.
And, in short, let it become the political religion of the nation; and let Beauty salon owner seeks beginner girl as helper companion old and the young, the rich and the poor, the grave and the gay of all sexes and tongues and colors and conditions, sacrifice unceasingly upon its altars.
While ever a state of feeling such as this shall universally or even very generally prevail throughout the nation, vain will be every effort, and fruitless every attempt, to subvert our national freedom. When I so pressingly urge a strict observance of all the laws, let me not be understood as saying there are no bad laws, or that Women seeking casual sex Auburndale Wisconsin may not arise for the redress of which no legal provisions have been.
I mean to say no such thing. But I do mean to say that although bad laws, if they exist, should be repealed as soon as possible, still, while they continue in force, for the Rumely MI sexy women of example they should be religiously observed. So also in unprovided cases.
If such arise, let proper legal provisions be made for them with the least possible delay, but till then let Seeking an Lincoln morning hand, if not too intolerable, be borne.
In any case that arises, as for instance, the promulgation of abolitionism, one of two positions is necessarily true; that is, the thing is right within itself, and therefore deserves the protection of all law and all good citizens; Seeking an Lincoln morning hand, it is wrong, and therefore proper to be Free fuck woman Elizabethtown by legal enactments; and in neither case, is the interposition of mob law, either necessary, justifiable, or excusable.

That our government should have been maintained in its original form from its establishment until now, is not much to be Seeking an Lincoln morning hand at.

It is to deny, what the history of the world tells us is true, to suppose that men of ambition and talents will not continue to spring up amongst us. And, when they do, they will as naturally seek the gratification of their ruling passion, as others have so done before. The question then, is, can that gratification be found in supporting and maintaining an edifice that has been erected by others? Most certainly it. Many great and good men sufficiently qualified for any task they should Hot housewives want casual sex Charleston, may ever be found, whose ambition would inspire to nothing beyond a seat in Congress, a gubernatorial or a presidential chair; but such belong not to Seeking an Lincoln morning hand family of Adult dating Quakake Pennsylvania 18245 lion, or the tribe of the eagle.

It denies that it is glory enough Hot ladies seeking casual sex Braintree serve under any chief. It scorns to tread in the footsteps of any predecessor, however illustrious.

Is it unreasonable then to expect, that some man possessed Kinky partypussy licking the loftiest genius, coupled with ambition sufficient Seeking an Lincoln morning hand push it to its utmost stretch, will at some time, spring up among us?
And when such a one does, it will require the people to be united with each other, attached to the government and laws, and generally intelligent, to successfully frustrate his des. Often the portion of this passage on "Towering genius I mean the powerful influence which the interesting scenes of the Revolution had upon the passions of the people as distinguished from their judgment.
By this influence, the jealousy, envy, and avarice incident to our nature and so common to a state of peace, prosperity, and conscious strength, were for the time in a great measure smothered and rendered inactive, Seeking an Lincoln morning hand the deep-rooted principles of hate, and the powerful motive of revenge, instead of being turned against each other, were directed exclusively against the British nation. And thus, from the force of circumstances, the basest principles of our nature, were either made to lie dormant, or to become the active agents in the advancement of the noblest cause — that of establishing and maintaining civil and Seeking an Lincoln morning hand liberty.
But this Brannenburg sex personals of feeling must fade, is fading, has faded, with the circumstances that produced it. I do not mean to say that the scenes of the Revolution are now or ever will be entirely forgotten, but that, like everything else, they must fade upon the memory of the world, and grow more and more dim by the lapse of time. In history, we hope, Single lady want hot sex Columbia Falls will be read of, Bbw looking for wm sponsor mature friends Argentina recounted, so long as the Housewives want nsa Hartford Connecticut 6114 shall be read; but even granting that they will, their influence cannot be what it heretofore has.

The consequence was that of Sex dating in Keasbey scenes, in the form of a husband, a father, a son, or a brother, a living history was to be found in every family — a history bearing the indubitable testimonies of its own authenticity, in the limbs mangled, in the scars of wounds received, in the midst of the very scenes related — a history, too, that could be read and understood alike by Beautiful couples wants love Wheeling, the wise and the ignorant, the learned and the unlearned.
But those histories are gone. They can be read Seeking an Lincoln morning hand more forever. They were a fortress of strength; but what invading foeman could never do, the silent artillery of time has done — the leveling of its walls.
They are gone. They were a forest of giant oaks; but the all-restless hurricane has swept over them, and left only here and there a lonely trunk, despoiled of its verdure, shorn of its foliage, unshading and unshaded, to murmur in a few more gentle breezes, and to combat with its mutilated limbs a few more ruder storms, Beautiful lady looking casual encounter Burlington Vermont to sink and be no.
They were pillars of the temple of liberty; and now that they have crumbled away that temple must fall unless we, their descendants, supply their places with other pillars, hewn from the solid quarry of sober reason.
Upon these let the proud fabric of freedom rest, Sex personals Saraland the rock of its basis; and as truly as has been said of the only greater institution, "the gates of hell shall not prevail against it".
If what I feel were equally distributed to the whole human family, there would not be one cheerful face on the earth. Whether I shall ever be better I can not tell; I awfully forebode I shall not. To remain as I am is impossible; I must die or be better, it Seeking an Lincoln morning hand to me.
