Proud to be American |

Proud to be American

First of all, I support President Bush’s war on terrorism and the war in Iraq. We also have terrorism in this country, as well – murders, street gang violence, domestic violence, and the list goes on. I do not support communism, lawsuit abuse and hate, which is responsible for all wars. There is no glory in war but glory in freedom. Martin Luther King said that all African Americans along with all whites would be singing “Free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, we’re free at last.” When I saw the evening news and saw that effigy torn down twice and then a picture of an American flag in the toilet, it somewhat did not surprise me.

Our freedom to express ourselves and speak out has been replaced with litigation lawyers, litigation judges, litigation lawsuits, vandals, and the list goes on. President Bush and Gov. Schwarzenegger have lots of work to do, and I hope they get it done before the final hour of judgment when God judges the world. Meanwhile, I’m proud to be an American and a Christian. God bless all of you.
