A+ grade to our government for keeping us safe

Seven years ago tomorrow our nation faced the greatest terrorist attack in American history. It was a disaster of incomparable proportions.

Since that day, our government has done a remarkable job of protecting us and preventing another terrorists attack. In fact, our government deserves an A+ grade in this area.

Despite all the terrorist attacks on our soil, at U.S. embassies around the world, before 9-11, there have been ZERO attacks since that day. There has not been one attack in a bus station, not one attack at an embassy, not one attack on a military base, not one attack at an airport.

The fact that there has been ZERO terrorist attacks has been nothing short of remarkable. The George Bush administration, U.S. Governors, Senators at the state and federal level, Congress men at the state and federal level, local communities, and the American people in general should all be given accolades for this major accomplishment.

Everything our government has done, including the War on Terror and the Iraq War, the surveillance program to catch terrorist thugs trying to communicate with Americans, have been very successful in thwarting every terrorist attempt at attacking America. The terrorists have failed and failed every time since 9-11-01.

Al Qaeda is but a fraction of what it was on 9-11, and may not even be capable of functioning the way it did when preparing for the attacks on 9-11.

Not only that, but America has done a marvelous job of promoting democracies abroad, particularly in that nation that once was a terrorist safe haven in Iraq. I think there are over 20 million people in that nation who once lived in fear under a totalitarian dictator now have their God given freedoms.

And, for every new democracy, that is one less country that wishes to destroy us. For, as history as my evidence, there has been only one time in world history where two democracies have gone to war with one another (and you can do your research to find out when that war was, and between what nations).

America is safer and, as a result the world is safer. While some in this country, and some individuals world-wide still fail to see the terrorist threat, the administration leading the U.S. has been steadfast and determined to not only see the threat, but that threat down where the threat is started, rather than wait for more people to die as a result of doing nothing.

Take a look at the picture that's attached to this post. So long as we take great care in who we elect to lead us, that will never happen again. We must elect people who will never take away the tools that work. We must elect people who will never give Constitutional rights to terrorists.

We must elect people who will never forget the failed government policies that lead to 9-11.


According to the U.S. Constitution, the number one priority of the U.S. Government is to protect our freedom. Our government has done that and done it well for seven straight years. If anything good can come out of 9-11, it's that we have learned never to be blind to those who are at war with us.

God bless America, and on this 7th anniversary of 9-11, God bless our Government for keeping us safe.

And in my mind it will never be political exploitation to show those images and remind Americans of what happened and what could happen if we are not watchful.
