This Great America

Another quibble with John Ransom's article: He mentions several times the "good" of a strong national defense. It is good, but how much do we need, and to what purpose? Years ago we discovered that the world doesn't want us to be their interventionist "policeman". More recently we are discovering that democracy is not plug-and-play; we can't go in, take it out of a box and install it and expect it to work every time. We do need some thought and debate on just WHAT our national and individual purpose(s) is/are.

The choice that we face today is between freedoms on the one hand, and ruin on the other.

There has never been a generation in our history that has been given more than the generation which was born between 1945 and 1960.

They were given so much by their hard and hardy parents, who by fighting through a real economic depression and a great world war, helped bolster freedom for the free and bequeathed freedom to millions of others who lived in the twilight of tyranny.    

I call these sons and daughters of what we know as the Greatest...
