America is unique

We live in the greatest country on earth and don’t let anyone tell you differently. But sometimes we have to remind ourselves of the greatness of the United States, so maybe a revue won’t hurt. Our founding principles have been summarized by many historians: the thought that “all men are created equal” was unique and established a government unlike any other country in the world. God given “inalienable rights” meant that “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” established a high standard of justice that would guide us in our future. And equality was the foundation for legitimate established government “by consent of the governed”. A true representative republic with all the power vested in the people the United States. We all owe our allegiance to this great nation, most Americans agree, some do not.

It wasn’t long ago that politicians of both parties sang the same song. Most loved our country. Quotes like, “This country cannot afford to be materially rich and spiritually poor”, and “One person can make a difference and everyone should try” or, “Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democrat answer, but the right answer”, or, how about one of the most famous quotes of all, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country”. All are statements of former Democrat President John F. Kennedy. What has happened to this once great party?

No matter how hard I try, I cannot imagine, nor can I think of one present-day Democrat leader who would use words praising the USA, or foster thoughts which would make our country better. Don’t believe me? Try Googling quotes from Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer.

We are a divided country, one which is in great peril of losing our God-given rights. I urge all US citizens to remember back to when most members of both parties were patriotic and could agree on policy beneficial to all. We need leaders who believe in the goodness of our country. For those who are not old enough to remember the “good old days”, study our real history, question what you are being taught. Much of it is coming from “professional educators” of teachers’ unions who have ulterior motives designed to corrupt our youth and, eventually, to force changes to our system of government. We can’t let them win.

May God continue to bless the United States of America.
