More Than a Dream  

America’s founders risked their lives, fortunes and sacred honor for a dream.  In a world previously controlled by kings, it was truly exceptional to think our Creator endowed each of us with the unalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  It took eight years and the blood of 25,000 patriots for the dream called America to take root.

Six years later, our fledgling experiment in freedom was near collapse, so America’s framers gathered to rewrite our national rulebook.  More a constitutional crisis than a convention, it appeared a nation founded on liberty and limited government might not be possible.  During a heated debate, Benjamin Franklin declared, “God truly governs the affairs of men and if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, can an empire be raised without his aid?”  Mr. Franklin suggested each session begin with prayer, so the delegates did and thereby gave birth to our divinely inspired constitutional republic.  The concepts they put on paper are as fitting today as they were in 1789 and their dream survived the Civil War, two World Wars and dozens of military engagements.  America has been a beacon of liberty for 246 years, but our battle for freedom is never won—only fought.

President Reagan warned, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction,” and today our republic is engaged in her second not-so-civil war.  This battle is not fought with blood, bullets or bayonets but with vile name-calling, protests, postings and tweets.  Wearing the blue uniform are patriots desiring to free the American spirit and they believe in equality of opportunity and the supremacy of God.  Those clad in gray wish to regulate the American spirit and believe in equality of outcomes and the supremacy of government.  This battle between the blue and the gray, freedom and free stuff, has never been more obvious than it was at President Trump’s State of the Union address.  Other than ceremonial clapping upon the president’s entry, the gray team refused to applaud America’s expanding economy, plunging unemployment, veterans, Old Glory, and God. 

For 90 minutes, President Trump spoke how repealing burdensome regulation has spurred our economy.  The wind is at our backs; prosperity is on the horizon.  After an eight-year apology tour blaming America for the world’s problems, it is such a relief to have a commander-in-chief who loves his country.  President Trump will go down in history for stating what patriots have known since 1776, “Americans are dreamers too!”
