  • Superheroes Rule in Theaters, but Real Heroes Are on Freedom's Frontier

    Dark shadows and superheroes may be all the rage in theaters, but the real heroes are on freedom’s frontier, and what’s really scary are schemes in Washington that will leave our men and women in uniform without what they need to defend us.

    Here is some serious short cinema on the problems of protecting America.

    Senator Jon Kyl (R–AZ) speaks out on why conservatives must defend our defenders.

    A thousand-pound truck bomb” and a lesson about America’s military at risk.

    During “Protect America Month,” The Heritage Foundation features programs and materials highlighting the constitutional responsibility of the U.S. government to “provide for the common defense.”

      the problems on protecting America is the unwillingness of Mr. Obama to defend the human good. What America's military is all about. Mr. Obama wants to complicate all actions by America to confuse history without a care to who's lives are unprotected or killed.

      What Mr. Obama wouldn't do for himself, America held his hand only to have Obama choose to take advantage then break it with his ungratefulness resulting in "change" for America into his game plan which doesn't consist of respect for the common, human good. America is undeserving of fakes and frauds in her leadership roles.

      The mindset following Obama is what needs "change!"

      That is an excellent point. Obama is the last in a long line of politicians who put our service men and women out there to win, but who tie their hands with emasculating rules of engagement and a nebulous defense policy. Obama, like others before him, pretends to "support the troops," but nearly every policy, rule, and dictate that comes from the CIC impedes the ability of the military to actually succeed in a meaningful way and lasting way. This is immoral at its core because a spineless approach always leads to protracted, ill-defined war. Political correct rules of engagement lead to needless deaths on both sides. Obama, like the others, is fearful of decisive victory. I have my theories as to why, but that is another conversation.

    4. Of all the things that this administration wants to do, reducing our military capabilities will make the U.S. military and this country vulnerable to China and her proxy North Korea as well as a recent surge in Russia's military. We must invest in the future of our military and not relinquish our dominance in this area.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
