    In case we find ourselves starting to believe all the anti-American sentiment and
    negativity about our government and its policies, we should remember Tony
    Blair's words to his own people. During a recent interview, Prime Minister Tony
    Blair of Great Britain was quoted giving the following answer to one of his
    parliament members as to why he believes so much in America and its President.
    And does he think they are on the right track?

    Blair's reply--"A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at...how many
    want in...and how many want out
    ."

    Maybe you can help me, JB. I can't remember all of this speech, which was made by President Reagan, but the jist of it was that, despite what the scoffers say, we, as a people, can accomplish ANYTHING.

    "We are, after all, Americans."

    Not the one you speak of but I like this one.

    Why should we be frightened? No people who have ever lived on this earth have fought harder, paid a higher price for freedom, or done more to advance the dignity of man than the living Americans, those Americans living in this land today.
    -- Ronald Reagan

    Ah, Mr. Reagan. There was a Caesar. When comes such another?

    These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine
    patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that
    stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.
    --Thomas Paine

    If liberals possessed either grace or conscience, they would blush with shame at Thomas Paine's words.

    They don't, so they don't.
