Elections Today - Quote

It's election day here, and I love this quote I have in my 'quote file'. Of course I can't vote in this country, but still...

"In selecting men for office, let principle be your guide. Regard not the particular sect or denomination of the candidate - look to his character...It is alleged by men of loose principles, or defective views of the subject, that religion and morality are not necessary or important qualifications for political stations. But the Scriptures teach a different doctrine. They direct that rulers should be men who rule in fear of God, able men, such as (those who) fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness...When a citizen gives his vote to a man of known immorality, he abuses his civic responsibility; he sacrifices not only his own interest, but that of his neighbour; he betrays the interest of his country." Noah Webster
