Good Words for a Friday in the Rain (#13)

 Politics and the 4th of July go hand and hand. So for this week's Good Words I wanted to pick words I believe are an American truth. Unfortuently at times, no matter how truthful words are, they just are not heard.

This is because regardless of who speaks the truth, we often will first filter it through the person that is sharing them. If we have not agreed with something else the person has said, then the truth is not heard. But the truth is the truth, no matter who speaks it. It can not be altered, it can not be spun, it can not disguised.

So if these words resonate in your heart, then who said these words should not matter. For it is a truth for you too.

But if you are curious know who did say them, then you will find your answer in the first comment on this post.

My best to you and yours. I wish you a safe and happy 4th of July.

Move U.S. Forward...

Do NOT assume I voted for Bill Clinton.

But know that I believe that in order to move our country forward we must first find our common ground.

These words are common ground.

"There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured with what is right in America Bill Clinton."

"There is nothing wrong with America that the faith, love of freedom, intelligence, and energy of her citizens can not cure Dwight David Eisenhower."

Dwight was right.  Seeing the two quotes together, is there a case of plagiarizing here?   

Not you, Craig--just curious. : ) 

Thanks and have a great July 4th!

Clinton did have good speech writers. Too bad he didn't cure what was wrong with America...LOL!

No matter who said it, it's true.  I wouldn't live anywhere else on this planet.  I love America and always will.

Well, l I like the one from Dwight better because it spells it out - Bill's sums it up.
