America - Last Hope for Justice

"Judging from the main portions of the history of the world, so far, justice is always in jeopardy."  Walt Whitman.

Whitman's observation is true today as it was made generations ago.  In the interim we have faced down the Kaiser, Nazism, Imperial Japan, and the USSR.  Today we are fighting for justice against extreme radical Islamic terrorists whose idea of justice is a one world caliphate, denying women equality, and abolishing all unalienable rights (such as the free exercise of religion, free speech, the right to assemble).

Of course, the fight for justice at home is never complete, but we remain the world's last, best hope for freedom, equality, and justice.  As we confront our challenges - domestic and foreign - we will be best prepared to prevail if we keep our Founding First Principles at the forefront.  Otherwise, justice for us all will vanish into the darkness of history.
