Beacon of Hope


The United States of America has been a great shining beacon of hope for people and it's why my ancestors left their homes to come here. As a nation of immigrants, we reflect the belief that anyone who is willing to work hard can achieve great things. It's our legacy and our chief virtue.

The Country was not built on socialism, it was built on individualism. We as a people are grounded on the hope that our children can live a better life than we did and their children can live a better life than they did. That concept caused my some of my family to leave Switzerland two generations ago and establish themselves here. They wanted a place where virtue wasn't a matter of convenience, but a matter of conscience and they believed that they found that place. A country where you are not what you were born to be, but what you have it in yourself to be.

That is not the Obama Doctrine. That is not the way of communists, socialists, national socialists and the present regime in this nation.  This is why I oppose the present administration with this blog and with my vote.

A friend asked my why I oppose the present trend in American governance. That's why. 

The minutemen who stood their ground against the British Army on Lexington Green were not motivated by greed. They stood against tyranny as individuals, as neighbors, and as friends. They acted on conscience because the only good government is one that is just. Our government is no longer just. Therefore it is no longer good.

And we can change it back to where it should be if we have the courage to see beyond empty rhetoric and vote for virtue.

  1. Beacon of Hope, or Bacon of Hope?

  2. I would go so far as to say Obama is anti-virtue. As standing next to a beautiful woman can make an average woman look plain, virtuous people in America show Obama and his minions off in stark contrast.

  3. Hear hear! And Opus, Obama is indeed anti-virtue. In fact he, and more specifically his beliefs, are a virus, a disease, that must be cured lest it kill the America that we all love.

    1. His way is the wrong way. It's not an American way. His heart is not an American heart. His vision was skewed forever by his family and friends who hated America and everything that it stood for.

      And America was stupid enough to elect him to office twice. What does that say to the larger portion of our own nation?

    2. Thank G-d 0bama can't run for a third term. Even so, we must make sure the Dems don't win in 2016. They must be discredited by 0bama's mess for a generation, as they were following Carter.

  4. Yep, we need to take back our country... It's NOT about rhetoric, it's about actions... And those actions SHOULD have consequences at election time.

    1. I pray more states implement voter ID. This will be a bulwark against the type of shenanigans that swayed the 2012 election to 0bama. Precincts without ONE "R" vote? Come ON!

  5. Living by what you believe is the best what one can do for oneself. Not always do we agree. Not always we're on the same lines.
    If we can yet live by what we think is right, everything seems justified.
