As I often say...I'm glad they are not on my side. I did not support them when they were pouring beer over the heads of politicians. I did not support them when they were vandalizing the capitol. I did not support them when they closed the veteran memorials in DC out of spite, a lack of respect for the military, and immaturity.
Because I'm better than that.
I don't change my mind on important issues because my deepest beliefs are nothing more than the results of opinion polls and focus groups.
I believe the only thing better than sleeping late is a good nap.
I believe government should defend our borders, in peace through strength, and in asking for forgiveness rather than asking for permission.
I believe I'll never be half the person my dog thinks I am.
I believe redistributing income is immoral. And, not surprisingly, it doesn't work either.
I believe we should stop kicking the can of bloated entitlements down the road. If you are not going to deal with the problems at hand, go play golf and let someone who gives a damn take the wheel.
I believe pie is far better than cake.
I believe we should stop trying to punish the successful and instead, celebrate them. I do not begrudge them their success, because it is the result of them working harder, being smarter, or getting luckier than me.
I do not believe skinny is sexy. It's a damn shame so many do.
I believe in the exceptionalism of the United States of America. I believe that the USA has saved the world twice, and in both instances, asked for nothing in return except for a place to bury their fallen heroes.
I believe we should quit apologizing for being the finest nation in the history of the planet. Do not apologize for your achievements or your prosperity. Never apologize for being an American. Never apologize for being patriotic. And most of all, never apologize for being a patriotic American.
Never apologize for chasing the American dream. And my goodness, never apologize for achieving it.
