We highly resolve that these
dead shall not have died in vain,
that this nation, under GOD, shall
have a new birth of freedom, and
the government of the people,
by the people, for the people,
shall not perish from the earth.  
A.Lincoln
America, America,
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown they good
With brotherhood
From sea to shining sea.
                           Making America Great Again

Our current national theme is “Make America Great Again.”   That calls for
reconciliation, restoring hope, trust and faith in America by joining these God-
ordained attributes with government.

A young boy, who really wanted $100, prayed for two weeks, but nothing
happened. Then he decided to write God a letter requesting $100. When the
postal authorities received the letter to “GOD, U.S.A.,” they decided to send it to
the president. The president was so impressed and amused that he instructed
his secretary to send the boy $50. (Mr. President thought that this would appear
to be a lot of money to the little boy.) The boy was delighted with the $50 and
immediately sat down to write a thank you note to God that read: “Dear God,
Thank you very much for sending me the money. However, I noticed that for
some reason you had to send it through Washington, D.C. – and those
knuckleheads took half of it!”  This joke illustrates the idea of trusting, or not
trusting our government and upon what we predicate said trust.

The truth is, one’s faith, or lack thereof, will always determine one’s politics.
Faith is the unquestioning acceptance of a person, place or thing without          
substantive evidence.
Blind faith could be defined as the unquestioning acceptance of a thing without
seeing any concrete proof of its validity.

God does not demand blind faith. He left abundant proof of His existence. That
said, should a greater measure of trust be accorded to something as
demonstrably untrustworthy as a political party?  We have just elected a new
president with a political party that has the majority in Congress. We have, in
effect, committed the destiny of our nation into their hands. Do we as veterans
walk away and leave it at that?  If the Almighty does not require blind faith,
should a politician or a political party?  If the Creator of the universe provides
reasonable and logical support for believing in Him, is it an intelligent decision to
simply believe politicians without tangible evidence of the efficacy of their word,
and upon what basis their word stands?
The Founders were keenly aware of the nature of man. John Adams cut to the
chase: “We have no government armed with the power capable of contending
with human passions unbridled by morality and religion … our Constitution was
made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the
government of any other.”
As we see the new President and Congress begin the process of governing, let
us recall the power of that truth. The founders of USA were convinced that an
acknowledgment of the Creator was inextricably bound up in the life of the
nation.  They were not deceived regarding the inherent dangers of a secular
society. This is clearly stated by John Quincy Adams, who said: “The highest
glory of the American Revolution was this; it connected in one indissoluble bond
the principles of civil government and those of Christianity.”  This indissoluble
bond between the Founders’ faith and their politics is the basis for our liberties
as a nation and the foundation of this powerful engine of human liberty.
As veterans, we must work to heal and unify our nation to make it great as it was
when founded.  We must rid it of the conditions under which corruption and
decay thrive.  Is it possible?  That which unites us as Americans is stronger than
that which divides us as donkeys or elephants.  Don't mistake activity with
achievement.  Remember America, prevention is better than cure.
