President’s Day Week: Principled Leadership Necessary
At critical times through our nation’s history, principled and courageous men have stood up and lead our country towards greatness. Our Founding Fathers declared their independence from Britain and created our Constitution – the greatest governing document we have ever seen. From those early leaders to Ronald Reagan, who most recently advanced freedom in our nation, great men have, at critical times, emerged to save America, “the last great hope of mankind.”
Most, if not all, Americans realize our country is today at a crossroads. We are faced with an ever growing and more powerful central government, rapidly increasing debt and vigorous competition from abroad. America is once again in need of a courageous and principled leader.
America, both as an idea and in practice, has always been about individuals, not an all powerful central government. Rugged individualism and an unwavering entrepreneurial spirit are what made America exceptional. Yet, in recent years, we have moved away from those founding principles.
