Happy Independence Day, America! What a grateful nation we should be, especially on a day like today. Megyn Kelly had a group of 14 wounded warriors on her show to inspire us all. And to remind us why we are so grateful for the freedoms we have. It is because of men like this that we can celebrate being an American on this beautiful day.
I know this is a week or so old, but for those of you who have not seen it, I would categorieze this as “must-see” video. This is from the Hispanic Leadership Network Conference in Miami Florida on January 27th. Marco Rubio is one of those Freshmen Republicans in Washington, but his star shines bright on the horizon. I expect many good things from this man in the future, and there couldn’t be a more important time in America’s history for people of Rubio’s character to become involved in politics to help right this ship.
…when the choices that are put before us today are dangerous ones, because if we choose this path of pitting people against each other, if we buy into this notion that our economy really can’t grow fast enough for all of us to prosper so we’re going to have to somehow empower government to distribute the wealth of this country among us, we’ve chosen to become like everybody else. We’ve chosen to become like the countries that your parents and grandparents came here to get away from. And that’s a powerful message. And that’s the message that we need to deliver. And that’s the message we need to work on delivering. It’s a winning message, but it’s a difficult message to get to because the gateway issue of immigration stands in the minds of so many people who we live next to and love.
This weekend on John Stossel’s show, he talked with Gary Sinise about all the philanthropic work he’s done with the troops, as well as the patriotic themes often seen on his hit show “CSY: NY.” Gary Sinise is one fantastic American, and I never knew just how many groups he was involved with until I saw this special with Stossel.
Honestly, when does this man sleep? Either way, I salute Gary Sinise and thank God for giving us such a special human being to look up to. If each of us could only give a 10th of what Gary Sinise gives to our fellow man, the whole world would be a brighter place.
