In 1961, Democrat President John Kennedy gave a stirring Inaugural address. His most famous line was “Ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country”. That statement inspired a generation of people to work towards great things both personally and as a nation. We actually went to the moon several years later, largely through his inspiration and the hard work of our fellow citizens.
This is in stark contrast to what Democrats are planning for the State of the Union address that will happen in just a few short hours. The plan is that a number of Democrat representatives will not attend, this in spite of the good news that will be imparted by our President. Others are bringing celebrities like Rosie O’Donnell, Madonna and others to shout down the Presidents message. Many are also bringing in DACA and other illegal aliens, transgenders, and God only knows who else to shout down President Trumps positive message. Instead of being part of the solution, they double down on the problems. Instead of helping inspire a generation to “do for their country”, they default to a hypocritical message of having our country do for their own special interests. Their dream is not for American greatness, but rather for America’s decline.
As Americans we are at a critical junction in our history. Do we follow this cynical lead into national decline, or do we follow the President’s lead to bring our nation to a position of even greater freedom and prosperity? The answer seems simple, but the solution will be fought long and hard both at the polls and in everyday life. I pray that God will bless us with the right solution.
