“Let it be said by our children's children that when we were tested we refused to let this journey end, that we did not turn back nor did we falter; and with eyes fixed on the horizon and God's grace upon us, we carried forth that great gift of freedom and delivered it safely to future generations.”
But as his solutions give rise to ever greater government, our freedoms slowly fall. Worse yet, the fate of future generations is in peril as our nation accumulates $47,000 in debt every single second. Only thanks to the resilience of the its people is America’s journey not yet over.
