The only part of the federal government the President does not want to expand is ?… the military of course. At the moment the United States is not under attack, but there goes our life insurance.
Some of us are informed enough to know the role the United States played in Europe in World Wars I and II. Some may even know about the gift the nation of France gave us as the great bastion of freedom. It’s called the Statue of Liberty. How many today know the story of the Berlin Airlift or care about the speed with which the U.S. military reaches the world’s biggest natural disaster sites with aid? Who gives us credit for the Marshall Plan by which we helped restore the lands of those who waged war on us?
Millions of North Koreans live in misery and without the freedom to move around at will, even within their own country. Meanwhile, South Korea remains free and prosperous thanks to the American armed forces. It’s a safe bet that the Soviet Union would have taken freedom away from even more people had it not been for the presence of America’s defenders of freedom. No one knows what wars did not start because of our strength and humanitarian resolve. This is just a sampling of many cases where the power and might of the U.S. has been a force for good. Our president sees none of them. He sees only our mistakes.
Our president does not believe in America the Good, BBHO. In the words of Pamela Geller, Barack Hussein Obama is the First Post-American President.
