In the tradition of Ronald Reagan's victory over Soviet tyranny in the cold war, the rip tide of Freedom unleashed by the Bush Doctrine is flowing forth, spreading its energy throughout the middle east. Like the spread of freedom unleashed through the great speech at the Brandenberg gate, the Bush Doctrine has left in its wake an unquenchable thirst for freedom.
Ronaldus Magnus said,
"Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom, and then lost it, have never known it again. "
"The house we hope to build is not for my generation but for yours. It is your future that matters. And I hope that when you are my age, you will be able to say as I have been able to say: We lived in freedom. We lived lives that were a statement, not an apology."
George W. Bush is destined for that kind of greatness. In this world, there are doers and there are complainers. Thank God for doers. May our children be so aptly blessed.
