State of the Union

President Bush delivers a message of Hope I recall one of Jimmy Carter's last such speeches. He told us that "America was over." That we must learn to make do with a lot less in the face of run-away inflation. That Americans must face difficult times and make the best of them. Then a Knight on a white horse rides onto the scene by the name of Ronald Reagan, and declares that America and Americans can and will take back our prosperity. That hope has not been destroyed by temporary struggles and a lack of leadership. The great communicator restored our faith in ourselves by expecting great results from us, and then actively removing the barriers that prevented us from achieving those results. President Bush has not always on the top of his game. But last night, Ronald Reagan would have been so proud. Passages like the following restored my faith in our ability to move forward in the coming year: "Deep in the American character, there is honor, and it is stronger than cynicism." Let freedom ring. Call on your representatives to work with our President. Together, we can make a difference. In America first, and in our world. Jeff 'SKI' Kinsey, Jonah tag:
