President's Message

A Valentine to America


On November 13, 2017, a 24-year-old North Korean soldier, known only by his surname Oh, commandeered a jeep and sped toward the Demilitarized Zone that for 64 years has separated his Communist homeland from the democratic capitalist South. As he approached the border, he abandoned the vehicle and scrambled toward the demarcation, as his fellow soldiers began firing at him, hitting him five times. He collapsed, alive, on the ground, free South Korean ground.

Freedom and Individualism, Not Collectivism - Freedom to speak, religious freedom, financial freedom, freedom to choose elected officials and freedom to choose a spouse. The idea that the individual is sovereign, an end in himself, and not the property of society or the state.

Risk and Determination - This country was founded by risk takers, and, from the beginning, Americans have had a desire to succeed. America is, and always will be, the land of opportunity, where dreams really come true.

Economic System - A natural, vibrant, capitalist economy and the Americans who make it hum. Shelves groan with merchandise and product choices are dizzying. Hard working American continue to make and invent and innovate almost everything there is to make and invent and innovate. We and people all over the world are benefitting from our output.

Equality of Opportunity, Not Equality of Outcome - Despite the puerile whining of the left, it is still true that if you work hard enough and persevere through failures and setbacks, you can still achieve success in the United States. Which is why so many migrate here.

E Pluribus Unum, Not Multiculturalism - Americans are tolerant. Despite those that raise up strife and contention and those who self-Balkanize with every hyphenated description, most Americans – native and immigrant, gay and straight, white, black, and brown, will admit they are grateful to be just that – American.

Faith, Not Secularism, Goodness, Not Moral Equivalence, Life, Not Death - Most Americans lead decent, praiseworthy lives. Even amid the temptations of a free, rich, and profligate society, most Americans opt for good when good is not the easy option.

The Military - Our military has never had an interest in conquering and subjugating the rest of the world. Yet, twice in the 20th century, the United States saved the world, first from the Nazi threat, then from Soviet totalitarianism. What would have been the world’s fate without our best and brightest? Just imagine if the Nazis had swallowed Europe, or the USSR had won the Cold War. Our troops take care to avoid civilian targets and to minimize collateral damage. And, when there is a disaster at home or abroad, the military is often the first to offer relief.

Patriotism - We love our country. Period.

Volunteerism - When there is a need in the community, the nation, or in the world, Americans give their time and open their hearts and wallets.

Beauty - Mountains, forests, beaches, lakes, rivers, swamps, plains, deserts. We have it all. There has never been a nation resembling the United States. America is about being bold, not bland; brave, not meek; great, not mediocre. America is full of beauty and kindness and wonder. She offers dignity, hope, and happiness. As with any sweetheart, she is not perfect, but she is as close to heaven on earth as one may hope to find.
