Pocket change – Good Government

July 13th, 2009 by Gallagher John 2 Comments

“A wise and frugal government which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned – this is the sum of good government.”
– Thomas Jefferson

    WOW! What a great insight into the mind of the kind of leaders who helped create this great nation!

    Oh God, give us more leaders who are wise like this – and make us wiser leaders along the way!

    Thanks John – for simple leadership!

    Thanks, Stan. I was driven to post this when I listened to Andy Stanley this weekend talk about Vision and clarity. As long as you keep the vision (the rock on which this country was built – the Declaration of Independence), you can change the plan a little bit. I feel like our current leaders have lost sight of this vision.
