Politics, honesty, Dakotas

The United States of America

Is blessed with brave, insightful founding Fathers, and a perspicacious Constitution.

We are also blessed to have bountiful natural resources and industrious citizens.  But while many nations have natural resources, our Nation grew to be the strongest in the world due to its solid foundation and motivated community. Our reliance on God, hard work, constitutional politics, compassion and sacrifice is what has made us great.

What do we need keep these blessings?  Protect them.

“America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.”

– Harry S. Truman, (1884-1972 ), 33rd President of the United States

“There are no great limits to growth because there are no limits of human intelligence, imagination, and wonder.”

– Ronald Reagan, (1911-2004), 40th President of the United States

“Life, Faculties, production – in other words, individuality, liberty, property – this is man.”  And since they are at the very core of human nature, they “precede all human legislation, and are superior to it.”

“Life, liberty and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place.”
