In his book titled “What I Saw in America,” G.K. Chesterton wrote the following:
We are perpetually being told in the papers that what is wanted is a great man who will do things. What is wanted is a great man who will undo things; and that will be a real test of greatness.
These days, in my home State of Maryland, and probably in your home state as well, this is precisely what we need. And we should follow Chesterton’s advice most especially in the upcoming elections.
Our Maryland legislature and our Maryland governor and many of our county council officials have overthrown the rule of law and have established a lawless and chaotic reign of terror on the people of the state.
Under the “color of law,” they have conspired to break the law by declaring a perverse definition of marriage, by denying the people the God-given right to defend themselves, by harassing the people through tiresome regulation, and by literally taxing the rain.
Rather than uphold the law, they have mocked the law by declaring themselves to be the law.
Whether you live in Maryland, Minnesota, Michigan, or Mississippi, as election time nears, we should NOT be looking to elect more phonies who will promise us things that they will do for us.
What we should demand to know of all future candidates is what they will undo for us.
We should ask:
What pretended legislation will you repeal? What lawless officials will you impeach? What burdensome and oppressive regulations will you erase?
If they don’t credibly declare and detail the things that they will undo, they will fail the test of greatness. And then they will fail to get our vote.
