A Force For Good

That world view that says that America is a nation of exceptionalism. And we are to be that shining city on a hill, as President Reagan so beautifully said, that we are a beacon of hope and that we are unapologetic here.

We are not perfect as a nation. But together, we represent a perfect ideal. And that is democracy and tolerance and freedom and equal rights.

Those things that we stand for that can be put to good use as a force for good in this world.

Some of these dictators who hate America and hate what we stand for, with our freedoms, our democracy, our tolerance, our respect for women's rights, those who would try to destroy what we stand for cannot be met with just sitting down on a presidential level.That is beyond bad judgment. That is dangerous.

Living in America. We are so blessed.

We have to fight for our freedoms, also, economic and our national security freedoms.

It was Ronald Reagan who said that freedom is always just one generation away from extinction.

We don't pass it to our children in the bloodstream; we have to fight for it and protect it, and then hand it to them so that they shall do the same.

We will fight for it

Moreover, an imperative fight it is, there are many forces at work seeking to undermine the greatness that is, America today. We must remain more than simply vigilant, we must stand ready to do whatever is necessary to defeat her enemies both at home and abroad, sadly though, especially at home.

Yes Courtney, we know America is not perfect, but we do not try to bring her down and make her look bad to other nations like Obama's crowd does.

McCain and Palin can still win, but the fur has got to fly. It will be amazing if a man wins who has absolutely no credentials to be President of the U.S. We truly are in desperate times if that happens.
