“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”

 

“My dream is of a place and a time where America will once again be seen as the last best hope of Earth.”

“Ballots are the rightful and peaceful successors to bullets.”

      • You know, we have a Lincoln memorial here in Southern California as apparently this area was involved in the Civil War to this extent. So we have some events coming up at our memorial and some re-enactments of the soldiers and bands at that time.

        I was thinking how truly difficult it would be in any period of time to be the President. People think the President is some kind of strange job that requires no brains. I want it known that I am very a-political, but I was just thinking about politics in general, and it is not so much the person as it is the political environment that our government has come to in this time. People have come to take freedom to mean something it is not, and freedom is NOT, contrary to popular belief, free. We have to struggle to make it possible for everyone, not just a select few. Anyway, as I said, I am not in favor of either party at this point in time, and I just watch the politics from a distance. It is sad that we seem to have forgotten what this nation has stood for, and that is not a statement particularly about any single figure, but about our politics in general. Thank you kindly. Yes, Washington was a great man living in a very difficult time, and he did a great job with what he had to work with.
