“Why do you think we call the last century the great American century? Because AMERICA SAVED THE WORLD -- not once, not twice, but THREE times from the evils of Nazism, communism, and despotism. If you want a little piece of evidence, here’s one fact to show you ...
...how different the American value system is: We’re the only people on the face of the planet, in the history of the entire world, to hold a technological advantage in war AND NOT USE IT FOR CONQUEST, but instead use it to free and liberate people around the world.
In 1945 we had the bomb no one else had.We could have taken that weapon and forced every nation on the planet to submit to us.We could have controlled the entire planet-that’s been the way of the world throughout history! Any time a nation had an advantage in war what do they do?
Conquer their neighbors and conquer as long as we could.We had the ultimate advantage, we could have conquered everyone and instead we took that weapon, we used it to END a war, and then we took OUR money and went and rebuilt the nations that had attacked US.Why would we do that?
Because there’s something different about being an American. And the whole world knows it.” ~Rick Green

To Better Understand the Constitution, Read the Bible.


"Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure, [and] which denounces against the wicked eternal misery, and [which] insured to the good eternal happiness ...
...are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments."

~Charles Carroll of Carrollton
