[New York, 3 October 1789]
By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation.
Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor– and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me  to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.
Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be– That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks–for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation–for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war–for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed–for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted–for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.
and also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions– to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually–to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed–to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord–To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and us–and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.
Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.
Go: Washington

 Comments from our good friend Jon Caldera.   Note that they spent 10 million to try and pass bad law:

We at Independence have led an educational effort to warn the families of Colorado of the danger of 66. As you know, the proponents of this 27% income tax increase raised a mind-boggling $10 million to sell it to voters. At least $4 million came from the education unions, and a million each from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Bill Gates. By the way, $10 million would be enough to give 2,000 Colorado students a $5,000 scholarship to a school of their family’s choice.

Win or lose, I want to thank first and foremost those of you who invested in the Independence Institute, and our “Kids are First” educational project. Without that investment, we simply would not have been able to counter the false narrative that the only way to “reform” education is to put more of your money into a broken system.

So many organizations worked on a shoestring budget to advocate a “no” vote, including the feisty Coloradans for Real Education Reform, and Kids Before Unions.

Countless individuals stood up to take leadership. I can name but a few right now – Senator Bob Hagedorn, Senator Norma Anderson, Leslie White and the crew at AFP, Ken Clark, Molly Vogt, Laura Boggs, Kelly Maher, Michelle Lyng, Cherish Schaffer, John Brackney, Ben DeGrow, Jonathan Lockwood and so many more that are slipping my mind. I apologize for those I’m blanking out on – my Alzheimer’s and whiskey are making me forget. All I know is we couldn’t have done it without an amazing coalition of partners.

And a special shout out to the entirety of the Republican State Legislators who stood in unison in opposition to 66 and with Colorado families.

Now can we start the conversation of how to reform education without raising taxes?

Straight on,

Jon Caldara
