Jeremiah 12: 14-17
Thus says Yahweh concerning all My wicked neighbors who strike at the inheritance with which I have endowed My people Israel, “Behold I am about to uproot them from their land and will uproot the house of Judah from among them. And it will come about that after I have uprooted them, I will again have compassion on them; and I will bring them back, each one to his inheritance and each one to his land. Then if they will really learn the ways of My people, to swear by My name, ‘As Yahweh lives,’ even as they taught My people to swear by Baal, they will be built up in the midst of My people. But if they will not listen, then I will uproot that nation, uproot and destroy it,” declares Yahweh.
“For here we are not afraid to follow the truth wherever it may lead, nor to tolerate any error so long as reason is left free to combat it.” (Thomas Jefferson)

Jeremiah 8: 10-12—“Therefore I will give their wives to others, their fields to new owners; because from the least even to the greatest everyone is greedy for gain; from the prophet even to the priest everyone practices deceit. They heal the brokenness of the daughter of My people superficially, saying, ‘Peace, peace,’ but there is no peace. Were they ashamed because of the abomination they had done? They certainly were not ashamed, and they did not know how to blush; therefore they shall fall among those who fall; at the time of their punishment they shall be brought down,” says Yahweh.
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” (Hosea 4: 6)

The United States: Exceptional Nation, Unexceptional Presidents
Our Founding Fathers knew what they were doing in Philadelphia when they wrote the United States Constitution. It wasn’t quite what it should have been, though, so James Madison drafted the Bill of Rights. They were added and the government they designed has been the envy of the world ever since.
I taught at the University of Virginia for 25 years. Today I’m a chaired professor emeritus at UVA. I was drawn inextricably to that school and Charlottesville, Virginia for everything they represent. Charlottesville is a small town, relatively speaking, but it’s home to 3 presidents: Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and James Monroe. UVA was the brainchild of Thomas Jefferson. He literally gave it birth. For 25 years, my office was in Monroe Hall. It’s next door to Monroe Hill House, a place where James Monroe who is best known for the Monroe Doctrine once lived and practiced law. Meriwether Lewis and William Clark of the Lewis and Clark Expedition were from there too. I lived in Glenmore, a horse farm on the Rivanna River that was designed by Thomas Jefferson for a friend. Glenmore became a country club and residential community. Our practice area looked straight out at Monticello Mountain, the place where Thomas Jefferson built his home – Monticello. In the late fall, winter, and early spring when the leaves were off the trees, you could see Monticello’s white rotunda glistening in the distance while you worked on your golf game.
Each year, millions of tourists from around the world visit the place I called home, and we didn’t live in a museum. We walked the same streets that our Founding Fathers trod; we worked in facilities that they designed, built, and used; and we absorbed some of the spirit that they left behind. Herb Stein is one many UVA faculty colleagues I was honored to work with and get to know. He had been chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors under President Nixon and President Ford. I looked him up and went to meet him as quickly as I arrived in Charlottesville. He was a brilliant man and a great economist. On one occasion while we were eating lunch after he had guest lectured in one of my strategy classes, he said, “Neil, the fact that our nation has survived and prospered despite the quality of presidential leadership we’ve had is a testament to the strength of government bequeathed to us by our Founding Fathers.”
Herb wasn’t castigating our presidents. He was saying that the ideas introduced and instilled by our Founding Fathers are bigger than the people who occupy the Oval Office for 8 years at most. That impromptu remark made to me over a casual lunch in one of UVA’s historic buildings has stuck with me all of these years. I reflect on it every time I see a President of the United States make a foolish decision or when Congress passes legislation that makes no sense. In due course, the people of these United States rise up and put us back on track. The give and take of the political process, including the name-calling, is part of that process. You can see it today, for example, as Tea Party activists and other like-minded citizens are saying enough is enough. When the people of the United States take a stand, even leftwing presidents like Barack Obama rush to the center, and liberal progressive members of Congress do their best to distance themselves from the policies of the past so they can win re-election. That’s what our Founding Fathers knew would happen.
At this critical juncture, the United States has no better friend in the world than Israel, and Israel is under merciless daily attack. Radical Islamists in Hamas, Fatah, the PLO, the PA, Hezbollah, the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, and a host of other Islamist groups with menacing names are doing everything in their power to annihilate that tiny sliver of a nation simply because she exists. Eliminating Israel’s presence in their midst is the motivating force to which they have dedicated their lives and their resources. Our friend, Israel, needs our help. When we stand up as a nation and let our voices be heard, our political leaders will respond. They have no choice. Our Founding Fathers saw to it.
The United States is an exceptional nation not because of our presidents and political leaders. We are an exceptional nation because of our people and our system of government. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by. Let your voice be heard.

“We have the greatest opportunity the world has ever seen, as long as we remain honest – which will be as long as we can keep the attention of our people alive. If they once become inattentive to public affairs, you and I, and Congress and Assemblies, judges and governors would all become wolves.” (Thomas Jefferson)
