Welcome To Stand For America!
We’re very excited to stand for freedom at home and strength abroad. We hope you’ll stand with us by signing up and joining the effort.
At the United Nations, Ambassador Haley proved that one person and one voice can make an impact. Imagine how much of a difference we can make when like-minded Americans unite to take a stand.
America is the greatest nation in the history of the world, but we face real challenges here at home and abroad. At home, there is a growing movement to turn away from the American system of capitalism towards a socialist mecca. Too many people are ashamed of our country’s history and culture. They rant about what is wrong with America, without mentioning what is right and good. We are too much – too loud, to insistent, too free, too wealthy, too big.
But, it is that tireless spirit that lies at the core of what it means to be an American. It is the reason why people around the world risk their lives to reach our shores. You don’t hear anyone talk about the “British Dream” or the “German Dream.” It’s called the “American Dream” for a reason.
These American qualities are not an accident. Nor are they are they passed down from father to son like a royal title. They are at the root of who we are as a people. They live in the spirit of our country.
At the same time, foreign threats endanger not just our freedom, but our lives. From Iran to Russia to North Korea, we must contend with nations who do not respect democratic ideals, human rights, or the rule of law. These challenges are made even more concerning because some of our leaders don’t grasp or won’t admit the danger they pose to the United States.
There is a quote of unknown origin that is worth mentioning: “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.” In other words, freedom isn’t free. It needs to be protected, and defended. We need to remind our fellow citizens what is special about our country, and what we stand to lose. We need to remind our friends and neighbors that real evil must be countered with strength and courage.
This journey will not always be easy, but let’s take to heart the words of Theodore Roosevelt: “Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.”
We hope you will join us. There is no greater cause than standing for America.
