Wondering and Remembering

Our President: "When America strays from our values, it not only undermines the rule of law, it alienates us from our allies, it energizes our adversaries and it endangers our national security and the lives of our troops."

My question: What values are you talking about? Why don't your actions reflect your words? Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are the values that immediately come to my mind. If you value life, why do you condone abortion? If you believe in liberty why are you adding more and more controls to our society and taking over industries? If you value the pursuit of happiness why is it becoming more and more difficult for decent hard working people to do so?

Do you honestly believe that being nice will keep our country safe? That is what I hear you saying. What needs to be realized it that there are evil people in this world who do not care how nice we are. (and we are already a pretty nice country when you consider the resources we share with the rest of the world)

What keeps us safe are the brave men and women who are defending and who have defended this great country of ours. What keeps them safe is providing the monies needed to keep our country safe. Let us not forget them this weekend as we enjoy our burgers, friends and families.

He is being greatly hypocritical with rhetoric! And standing in front of the Constitution the other day, though he has been trampling it with his actions! What a piece of work.

God bless our military for TRULY keeping us safe!

Good questions. Good answers. Wish everyone agreed, including the President.

Very well said. He is the definition of a hypocrite. He values the Constitution so much he refuses to prove he was born in America, although the Constitution declares any president must prove his citizenship!
I am remembering today a very special young man who gave his life in service of our country in 2003. Thanks to men like PFC Jason G. Wright and others who have served in our military to fight evil and spread freedom!
