Responsible Nation

Jim's Quote of the Day:

"Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature.... If the next centennial does not find us a great nation ... it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces." -President James Garfield

Garfield also had a good quote about how poverty, such as in his life, served as a good motivator to pull himself out of it. We're slowly losing this notion, which was once the norm.
