The only foundation for a republic…

The only foundation for … a republic is to be laid in Religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments.

Benjamin Rush, quoted in The Truth Project  by Del Tackett, Lesson 10 at 24:14; from Essays, Literary, Moral and Philosophical, 1798
