Throughout his career, Donald has successfully worked with people of many faiths and with many nations.”

Proponents of Socialism: Gaining Power Via the Dependency, Disintegration, Decay, & Death of People

“We must remember that nations that choose socialism suffer the slow and agonizing
death of moral and cultural decay and disintegration. Why?
Because the high priests of socialism who offer the temptations of statist programs and benefits
aren’t seeking the welfare of their people. Socialism at its heart is atheistic and has no moral compass.
Its lifeblood is power—power gained through dependency, and
once dependency is accomplished, socialism becomes the great destroyer!
It destroys:
Wealth
Dignity
Faith
Family
Freedom
We cannot allow our beloved nation to go down the path of totalitarian states.”
~ Frank Wright, PH.D.,
President & CEO – D. James Kennedy Ministries

Independence & Permanent Peace

“Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral.
I am not unmindful of the fact that violence often brings about momentary results.
Nations have frequently won their independence in battle.
But in spite of temporary victories, violence never brings permanent peace.”

~ Martin Luther King, Jr.,
Pastor, Activist & Humanitarian

There’s Something About Christmas

“Our many different cultures notwithstanding,
there’s something about the holidays that makes the planet communal.
Even nations that do not celebrate Christmas can’t help but be caught up
in the collective spirit of their neighbors, as twinkling lights dot the landscape
and carols fill the air. It’s an inspiring time of the year.”

Soar High: Don’t Try to Hold Others Down

Good afternoon, Everyone!  A sage quote, as follows:

“No matter how big a nation is, it is no stronger than its weakest people,
and as long as you keep a person down, some part of you has to be down there to hold him down,
so it means you cannot soar as you otherwise might.”

Marian Anderson
