On the base of this King Alfred statue the following words are found:
Alfred found learning dead, and he restored it
Education neglected, and he revived it
The laws powerless, and he gave them force
The church debased, and he raised it
The land ravaged by a fearful enemy from which he delivered it
Alfred’s name will live as long as mankind shall respect the past
Is This the Best We Got?
By Jeff Holder
Is this the best we got?
That’s the nagging thought in the minds of many conservatives as they survey the candidates who want to lead our country. We talk often about “electability” and “lesser of two evils” and “picking the best of the bunch.” And we almost believe it. But deep down inside, we want a strong American conservative leader. Because we hope that he or she could give us our country back.
