America, what promise?

I think I should end this day, early though it is, on a positive and inspiring note.

What is America?

I think this post captures it beautifully. I hope you find it as thought provoking as I did. May we awaken tomorrow to the promise of a better America

AMERICA’S FLAG OF 1812

WHAT IS AMERICA?

America is MORE THAN a COUNTRY, a PEOPLE, a CIVILIZATION, or a GOVERNMENT.

When one studies the history of America’s founding, America SHOULD NOT EXIST.

WHY is America here?  Why are INDIVIDUALS still GIVING UP EVERYTHING THEY HAVE, FRIENDS, FAMILY, HOMES, risking LIFE and DEATH to get here?

WHY ?          DREAMS

DREAMS of a FUTURE; a FUTURE, where ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.  For ALL time, For ALL FUTURE generations.

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people   ……     to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that…

Vote, Because They Can’t

 

 

Ironically, the current administration is more concerned about getting undocumented voters to the polls than getting ballots to our men and women in the military. Could it be because two thirds (2/3) of the military opposes Obama?

Vote today.

Much ado about nothing – Military Support for Obama?

Formal and informal group photographs of the Joint Chiefs of Staff: GEN Colin Powell (USA), GEN Carl E. Vuono (USA), GEN Larry D. Welch (USAF), GEN Robert T. Herres (USAF), Admiral Carlisle A. H. Trost (USN), GEN Alfred M. Gray (USMC). Also other staff members. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Colin Powell, along with four (4) other retired military officers recently announced his support for Barak Obama to great fanfare.

Contrast that level of support with the list  at the link below. How about this list?

500 Generals and Admirals support Romney

500 retired Generals and Admirals thought it was important enough to pay for the ad supporting Governor Romney. 66% of our active military members support Romney.

500 retired top military brass. 66% of active Military.

I know whose opinion I am giving more weight to.

Please make sure you vote tomorrow.

You might be a liberal….

An entertaining, light-hearted read on the night before an intense election day. Worth the read!

Today I passed on some links to a girlfriend of mine, and she turned them into a very funny post which I thought I would share. (Sorry, G., no Hillary lesbo jokes….) Here we go then:

  • If you think Fox News is indoctrinating people but virtually every other mainstream news media is informing them, you might be a liberal.
  • If you think that hypothetical consequences of nonrenewable energy are dangerous, but care not at all for verified consequences of the current unsustainable debt, you might be a liberal.
  • If you are more concerned with the backlash against all Muslims for the violent acts committed by some Muslims than you are for the victims of that violence and the philosophy behind it, you might be a liberal.
  • If you make excuses for the outright lies of Obama, but refuse to tolerate the lies from anyone remotely connected to the GOP, you…

The Most Damning Critique of Liberalism and Best Advocacy for Conservatism I’ve Seen in a Long Time

Well done video, the message is well worth the time to watch it. Conservatism is a belief, not a political party.

Make sure you get out and VOTE

If I could have one wish today, it would be that everyone in this nation would take 8 minutes and watch this video…

Cast a vote that counts

Voting

Why is your vote important?

In a nutshell, either Barak Obama or Mitt Romney will be elected president on Tuesday. No amount of wishful thinking will make any other candidate President. A protest vote or “principle” vote for another party only leaves your country’s future up to the whims of others.

Watch and consider before you “protest” or just as bad, abstain.

What else do you need to see? Religious intolerance, suppression of free speech? One man has already been arrested for making a YouTube video – a scapegoat for failed foreign policy. Do you really think 4 years from now you will still be able to “protest”?

Or might you be explaining, very quietly, to your grandchildren what it was like when we were free…

Get out and vote – and make it count.

Redacted in Beghazi – The Death of the Invisible Men

Obama has stated that the United States will find the perpetrators of the attack on the Embassy in Benghazi and bring them to justice weeks ago and is desperately hoping that the whole event will go away. Become invisible.

How about if we just prevented them from being killed in the first place? We now know that approximately 7 hours of video from the attack was available. But the President was out at a rock star fundraiser in Las Vegas instead of taking action.

Many are calling it “Benghazigate” and talking of a cover-up. It was not just a “cover-up” as we have become accustomed to the word in a political sense. It was incompetence, then arrogance and insensitivity followed by cover-up and deceit.

Take a look at what happens when an Ambassador is in peril.

There are a lot of questions being raised, but I think the most important is “if no one seems to have given the order to ‘Stand Down’, then please tell us all who stood their ground and gave the directive to ‘go save them’”?

Politics aside, ask yourself how you would feel right now if one of the four “invisible men” asking for help had been one of your loved ones.
