I will never apologize…. That we are the richest nation in the history of the world.
We are richest in the individual generosity to provide aid to all areas of the world as
demonstrated by the earthquake in Haiti, the tsunami in Indonesia and the hurricane in
We are the richest in ingenuity and innovation as shown in the lunar landing, medicines,
power generation, and computers.
We are the richest in terms of the strength of our all volunteer military who are the best
equipped, best trained and most dedicated to our ideals. Our military has freed millions
of people around the world, defeating despots that crush individual freedoms.
We are the richest in terms of individual opportunity where even the poorest of our
country has a greater chance for success than the richest of many countries.
We are the richest in culture, as we are the most diverse civilization in the world
represented by every nationality, creed and color, all of whom are working to make this
And why does the United States enjoy this bounty? It is a one word answer – FREEDOM. We
are the richest because we are the most free. I refuse to apologize for our freedom. If other
countries wish to emulate us, then they should recognize the God given rights of life, liberty and
the pursuit of happiness.
And how is this precious natural right protected? It is protected by the Constitution of the United
States. It is protected by a limited government. It is protected by a balance of equal but separate
powers, which includes states. It is protected by the democratic elections when we hold those in
power accountable. It is protected by We the People.
Never doubt that Freedom is the reason why we are the greatest Nation on earth. Our Founders
and Framers did not trust government. They believed that government would slowly and
completely limit Freedom. They believed that Freedom and excessive government could not
exist simultaneously. They were right…
I will never apologize for our freedom. I will never apologize for believing that we the
individuals can make a better society. I will never apologize for believing that big government
steals our God given right of Freedom. I will never apologize for my belief that government
spending is stealing the future freedom and prosperity of our children and grand children.
We are richest Nation in the world because we have Freedom. Protect it. Get involved.
