“Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far.”
“Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names.”
John F. Kennedy
“We live in a society obsessed with public opinion. But leadership has never been about popularity.”
Today, I will be talking about our country’s stance on international affairs. The USA is being walked on by other countries. Read the quote from Theodore Roosevelt again. He isn’t telling us to start wars; he is telling us to protect ourselves. The whole world now knows (Thanks to Mr. Obama) that they can do whatever they want to us. Now look at John F. Kennedy’s quote. He is saying that we need to let other countries have their chance to do their thing, but we need to watch our backs. We failed earlier this year when we let Iran start running their nuclear plants. They did have restrictions on how much they could do, and what they could do, but guess who is checking that they keep to the agreements – Iranian Inspectors. Now look at Marco Rubio’s quote. A lot of the decisions being made in our country are being made because the decision maker wants to look popular. Abraham Lincoln, now looked on as one of the country’s greatest presidents, lost several elections and made decisions that weren’t agreed with. Granted, it started a civil war, but there were questions that needed to be addressed. My closing point is that we as a people need to make decisions that aren’t necessarily popular, but right. And for we who are Christians… With everything that’s happening in the country, the choices we make may be termed Politically Incorrect. So, do what’s right, not just what’s popular.
Learn to do right; seek justice.
Defend the oppressed.
Take up the cause of the fatherless;
plead the case of the widow.
