Dr. Stanley Monteith: “You can’t have limited government unless you have moral people”

Transcribed by Jeff Fenske from Radio Liberty, 11/05/08, Open Lines

“America was great not because we have fields of waving grain, and we’ve got a great big country with a lot of natural resources.

America was great because we had a system of government based upon a belief in God, that man’s freedom came from God, and the power of the government was to be limited over the lives of the people with the realization that if you had moral people you could have limited government.

Unfortunately when you have immoral people you’re going to have unlimited government. That seems to be the way we’re going. …

You can’t have limited government unless you have moral people.”

– Dr. Stanley Monteith
