We can’t be policing the whole world.
How many times have you heard that?
It’s a false statement and I suspect even those who employ it, know it.
It’s not about policing, it’s about leading and the two are far different things. Now, perhaps more than ever before, the world needs a leader.
Obama doesn’t think so and neither do his followers.
Ron Paul doesn’t think so either and, of course, neither do HIS followers.
They are wrong. Dead wrong. And if we’re not careful, we’ll all be dead because they’re wrong.
Since the beginning of this nation, we have been that leader. In the war of independence, we defeated the world’s most powerful military force. Was it a fluke? Clearly, they thought so across the pond and so, they tested us again in the war of 1812.
We defeated them again.
Some thought that the war between the states would be our end. It wasn’t. In fact, it made us stronger.
Yes, there have been times when we stumbled…Korea…we stumbled. Vietnam? Yes, we stumbled.
Those were wars, on the world stage, battles.
While stumbling in the battles, on the world stage, we were still the leaders. The cold war loomed through both those conflicts and those who thought maybe we had lost our resolve found that, under Kennedy, we had certainly not.
While Nixon stumbled at home, on the world stage, he opened doors. Because we were the world’s strength, China and the Soviet Union, the world’s other two powers, began at least, to talk to us.
Reagan, through firm and unwavering resolve, won the cold war without firing a shot.
