You're a Republican??? Part 1
WHAT I AM ... is a husband who, at age 24, started his own business for the "privilege" of working 60, 70, and 80 hours a week, risking everything I had, including my health, in search of a better life for myself and my loved ones.
WHAT I AM ... is a businessman whose blood, sweat and tears ... and plenty of them ... made it possible for me to provide a secure living, not only for my family and myself, but also for literally hundreds of my employees throughout the years. Employees, who in turn were able to buy their own homes, raise their own families and give back to their communities and their country.
WHAT I AM ... is a man who believes in God; a God who has blessed this country ... and all for which it stands.
WHAT I AM ... is someone who knows, if you doubt miracles exist in today's world, you need only to look into the face of those who received them ... and the eyes of those who give them.
WHAT I AM ... is an American who's proud that his President embraces a belief in God; proud of a President who understands, as "politically incorrect" as it may be, there is evil in this world and, for the security and safety of all freedom-loving people everywhere, it must be confronted ... and it must be defeated.
WHAT I AM ... is an American who takes comfort in the knowledge that our President refuses to allow decisions concerning the very safety and security of this nation to be governed by the political whims of foreign governments.
More to come....
