IFI Statement on the Arrest of Gov. Blagojevich

Illinois Family Institute

Too many of us fail to exercise properly our civil liberties and civic responsibilities. The freedoms we have in this country, the freedoms that people throughout the world can only through fear and tears dream about, we treat with cavalier disregard. If we even muster the energy to vote, we often do so with little to no understanding of the character and political positions of the candidates for whom we vote.

According to one study the average American adult watches five hours of television per day, and yet we can’t seem to find the time to learn about the men and women who make laws and set policy that will determine the fate of America.

Let’s learn from the alleged despicable actions of Rod Blagojevich never to be complicit through either our ignorance or our complacency in the election of someone of such base character.
