    The country is still strong.

    It's the leadership that's weak.

    wow! this morning I woke up feeling like I am

    supposed to be responsible for something or someone. I think for the first time in my life, I see what it feels like to NOT feel responsible for once. I think it is part of my culture as an American to be responsible.

    Wake up, America, Europe,

    and citizens of all free world !!! Islam and democracy cannot co-exist!! Islam is a political ideology that only wants Sharia laws impose to all - which means intolerance and death to all who speak against Islam.

    It's sort of like being a sports fan.

    Regardless of how things are going, you are either with them through thick and thin, or you ride their coattails when things are good, but bail when they stumble. I am an American and nothing will ever deter me. I am in it for the long haul.

    Being an American is something special.

    It is possible to immigrate to any country I'm the world but you will never be considered one of them. Here in the United States a person can be first generation and still be considered by all a full blooded American. It's something to be proud of.
