This nation was founded upon God. It has sought to do right, to be self-governed, meaning not just our people governing our people, but more – each individual governing themselves. This nation has always entered war to end atrocities – tyranny brought by Great Britain, slaughter brought by Nazi Germany and Emperor-led Japan, terrorism brought by radicals, and even slavery brought and propagated by our own people. In every war, God has given us victory, righted wrongs, but this nation did more than that – we cared for the ones we defeated. It is only an America that has made great allies out of once horrific foes – Britain, Germany, Japan, and the reunification of the North and South. We have always depended on our own industry and the free market based on the morality learned in our Churches. We are the first to help those in need, the first to go, the first to help, the first to write a check. We are the land of opportunity. This is why people do all they can to come here, and few pack-up to leave. De Tocqueville said America is great because America is good. We need to return this nation to being good again.
Biblical Support – 1 Peter 2:13 Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every authority instituted among men: whether to the king, as the supreme authority, 14 or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. 15 For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men. 16 Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as servants of God. 17 Show proper respect to everyone: Love the brotherhood of believers, fear God, honor the king.
