First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win.
"First, a simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in and how many want out. Second, there are only two defining forces who ever offered to die for you:
1. Jesus Christ
2. The American G.I.
One died for your soul and the other for your freedom."
I regret that I have but one life to give for my country.
Part of the American Dream is to live long and die young. Only those Americans who are willing to die for their country are fit to live.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
Show me a man who will jump out of an airplane, and I'll show you a man who'll fight.
The price of greatness is responsibility.
There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured with what is right in America.
...the world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here, but can never forget what they did here. It is for us, the living, rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they have, thus far, so nobly carried on. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us - that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here gave the last full measure of devotion - that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation shall have a new birth of freedom; and that this government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
A veteran - whether active duty, retired, or national guard or reserve - is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America," for an amount of "up to and including THEIR LIFE."
all give some but some give ALL!!!!
Although no sculptured marble should rise to their memory, nor engraved stone bear record of their deeds, yet will their remembrance be as lasting as the land they honored.
AMERICA is a gateway of FREEDOM to LIFE, LIBERTY, and the pursuit of HAPPINESS.
AMERICA IS BEAUTIFUL! If you don't believe it,
just stop and ask yourself why we have some many people
trying to get into this place!
Beautify America. Wear a hat!
"Our Flag is red, white, and blue, but our nation is a rainbow - red, yellow, brown, black, and white - and we're all precious..."
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this
continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the
proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in
a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so
conceived and so dedicated can long endure. We are met on a great
battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of
that field as a final resting-place for those who here gave their
lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and
proper that we should do this. But in a larger sense, we cannot
dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground.
The brave men, living an...
Freedom is the oxygen of the soul.
Give me a man, or woman, who will bend with the wind of the voter's voices, but stand firmly grounded with a passion for wisdom and integrity, while never forgetting the promises they made before being elected.
God bless America, My home sweet home
Home of the Free Because of Our Brave
I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people, whose jsut powers are derived from the
consent of the govenrned; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect Union, on and inseparable; extablished
upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.
I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.
I believe it is the nature of people to be heroes, given the chance.
If there must be trouble
Let it be in my day
That my child
May have peace.
Let's Celebrate the USA
LIBERTY IS THE GODDESS THAT I DO ADORE
Mata de platano, a ti,
a ti te debo la mancha
que ni el jabon, ni la plancha
quitan de encima de mi.
Desque jibaro naci
al aire llevo el tesoro
de tu racimo de oro
y tu hoja verde y ancha;
Llevare siempre la mancha
per secula seculorum.
Men who have offered their lives for their country know that patriotism is not the fear of something; it is the love of something.
My dream is of a place and a time where America will once again be seen as the last best hope on earth.
No nation can be destroyed while it possesses a good home life.
Nothing can bring you peace but yourself.
Patriotism . . . is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime.
Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime.
Patriotism is the glue that holds this great country together!
Posterity, you will never know how much it cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it.
--John Quincy Adams
The flag and the constitution stand for democracy and not tyranny, for freedom, not subjection.
The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil constitution, are worth defending, against all hazards. And it is our duty to defend them against all attacks.
The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing...Say a prayer for all those who stand up for what's fair and moral.
The Religious spirit can only generate polarity, but the National spirit generates unity and brotherhood.
The union of hearts,
the union of hands,
and the flag of our union forever.
This country will not be a permanently good place for any of us to live in unless we make it a reasonably good place for all of us to live in.
Tis nobler to lose honor to save the lives of men than it is to gain honor by taking them.
We can't all be heroes because someone has to sit on the curb and clap as they go by.
We nee men who can dream of things that never were.
We, the people of the United States
in order to form a more perfect union,
establish justice, insure domestic tranquility,
provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessing of liberty
to ourselves and our posterity,
do ordain and establish
this Constitution for the United States of America.
What greater honor,
that when a man moves forward,
he leaves behind in each of us,
the best of what he was.
When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.
You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.
You will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make good use of it! If you do not I shall repent it in Heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it!
