Citizenship

Citizenship is public accounting for public matters. Citizenship is the lifetime demonstration of recognized standards by recognized citizens in recognized nations with recognized constitutions for recognized forms of government. The paramount tenant in Preambles of State Government and United States Government Constitutions is that the standards of citizenship demonstrated by all citizens determine the quality of personal, professional, and public interdependent relationships in families, organizations, and nations. The Laws of Nature and the Love of Nature's God commission all Human Beings to preserve and celebrate the quality of life and environment in order for the Blessings of Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness to be unto ourselves and Posterity. Dr. Benjamin Rush: "In our opposition to monarchy, we forgot that the temple of tyranny has two doors. We bolted one of them by proper restraints; but we left the other open, by neglecting to guard against the effects of our own ignorance and licentiousness." Thomas Jefferson: "If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be." George Washington: "The sacred fire of liberty and the destiny of the republican model of government were deeply and irrevocably staked on the experiment intrusted to the hands of the American people." Joseph L. Kelly: "The untold story is that citizenship, not leadership, is the cure for the core of the paralysis of our public systems."
