Washington: The Precedent Setting Pioneer

Washington was actually offered the position of President for life. He was also offered the same position in Freemasonry, namely Grand Master for life of a National Grand Lodge. he turned all such offers down and in the process set precedents that chartered the future course of not only his country but his fraternity. What other leader has had the opportunity to lay such groundwork on such a grand scale in multiple venues? You got to believe that Washington’s humbleness and his refusal to let his ego overtake the principles and virtues that he had fought for so hard is somewhat attributable to having been a Freemason and the obligation that had on his commitment to righteousness, virtue and morality.
