It is error alone which needs the support of government. Truth can stand by itself. -- Thomas Jefferson

We Are America



Being a freedom loving American isn't about being Republican or Democrat. It isn't about being black, white, yellow, red, or brown. It isn't about being Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, or Muslim. It isn't about being rich, middle class, or poor. 

It is about believing "that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness". It is about believing in the "government of the people, by the people, for the people". 

It is about our love, appreciation, and respect for those brave men and women who gave their time, their honor, their bodies, and their lives so that we can continue to be a freedom loving people, like Americans of yesterday, today, and tomorrow. 

It is about standing up to defend our country, and the helpless members of our society, from anyone or anything that threatens the lives and the liberties that this nation has cherished and protected for so many generations. It is about all of us standing up, and saying for all to hear, that WE are America, and that we will protect our nation as all the generations before us, and that we will never go quietly into that dark night.
