【Speech Video】Ahead of Memorial Day, the President asks all Americans to join him in remembering and honoring those who have died in service to the country.Download Video: mp4 (114MB) | mp3 (4MB) 201005/105056President Bush Discusses Free Trade with Western Hemisphere Leaders THE PRESIDENT: Listen, thank you all very much for being here. I'm joined by leaders throughout our hemisphere to discuss trade and prosperity. I know they're going to want to hear about the rescue plan that we have submitted to the Congress. They can see our legislative process is full of give-and-take, that there's ample debate, but I am confident that when it's all said and done, there will be a robust plan. And there needs to be.Each of the 11 countries here has a free trade agreement with the ed States, or one pending before Congress. Free and fair trade is in our mutual interests.What's interesting about free and fair trade amongst the nations is that the people benefit. For example, the Central American-Dominican Republic Free Trade Agreement is in its early stages, but trade between participating countries with the ed States is up 23 percent. That translates to jobs and prosperity. In the five years since the free trade agreement between the ed States and Chile took effect, trade between our two nations has increased by more than 180 percent. And that's positive. In other words, these agreements are mutually benefit. And most importantly, they help small business owners and workers and farmers and ranchers.In the nearly 15 years since NAFTA entered into force, trade between the ed States, Canada and Mexico has increased by a combined total of more than 200 percent.Today our countries are launching the Pathways to Prosperity in the Americas Initiative to continue this progress. This initiative will provide a forum where leaders can work to ensure that the benefits of trade are broadly shared. It will deepen the connections among regional markets. It will expand our cooperation on development issues. This is a very promising initiative, and I expect positive results when our representatives meet on these issues later this year.It's important for the American people to understand that exports benefit workers. Half of our growth last year was the result of trade. And therefore, it's in our interest to continue to open up markets, particularly in our own neighborhood. There are three free trade agreements pending in the Congress today: South Korea, Panama and Colombia. Obviously, two of those are with nations in our own hemisphere. The Colombia free trade agreement will be good for Colombia; it will be good for America. The President and I have worked diligently to make sure this is a fair agreement, and Congress needs to pass it.The Panamanian agreement is good for Panama, it's good for America, and Congress ought to pass that agreement, too. It's important that these agreements be passed as soon as possible.I want to thank the leaders for joining us. I'm looking forward to our discussion. I appreciate your hard work in working to make sure your people and your countries have great opportunities. One such opportunity is access to jobs provided by markets.Thank you for your vision, and thank you for your leadership. Thank you.200809/50523[Nextpage视频演讲]Weekly Address: Honoring the FallenAhead of Memorial Day, the President asks all Americans to join him in remembering and honoring our men and women in uniform who have died in service to the country. Download Video: mp4 (114MB) | mp3 (4MB) [Nextpage演讲文本]Remarks of President Barack ObamaSaturday, May 29, 2010Weekly AddressWashington, DCThis weekend, as we celebrate Memorial Day, families across America will gather in backyards and front porches, fire up the barbeque, kick back with friends, and spend time with people they care about. That is as it should be. But I also hope that as you do so, you’ll take some time to reflect on what Memorial Day is all about; on why we set this day aside as a time of national remembrance.It’s fitting every day to pay tribute to the men and women who wear the uniform of the ed States of America. Still, there are certain days that have been set aside for all of us to do so. Veterans Day is one such day – when we are called to honor Americans who’ve fought under our country’s flag.Our calling on Memorial Day is different. On this day, we honor not just those who’ve worn this country’s uniform, but the men and women who’ve died in its service; who’ve laid down their lives in defense of their fellow citizens; who’ve given their last full measure of devotion to protect the ed States of America. These are the men and women I will be honoring this weekend, and I know many of you are doing the same.There are any number of reasons America emerged from its humble beginnings as a cluster of colonies to become the most prosperous, most powerful nation on earth. There is the hard work, the resilience, and the character of our people. There is the ingenuity and enterprising spirit of our entrepreneurs and innovators. There are the ideals of opportunity, equality, and freedom that have not only inspired our people to perfect our own union, but inspired others to perfect theirs as well.But from the very start, there was also something more. A steadfast commitment to serve, to fight, and if necessary, to die, to preserve America and advance the ideals we cherish. It’s a commitment witnessed at each defining moment along the journey of this country. It’s what led a rag-tag militia to face British soldiers at Lexington and Concord. It’s what led young men, in a country divided half slave and half free, to take up arms to save our union. It’s what led patriots in each generation to sacrifice their own lives to secure the life of our nation, from the trenches of World War I to the battles of World War II, from Inchon and Khe Sanh, from Mosul to Marjah.That commitment – that willingness to lay down their lives so we might inherit the blessings of this nation – is what we honor today. But on this Memorial Day, as on every day, we are called to honor their ultimate sacrifice with more than words. We are called to honor them with deeds.We are called to honor them by doing our part for the loved ones our fallen heroes have left behind and looking after our military families. By making sure the men and women serving this country around the world have the support they need to achieve their missions and come home safely. By making sure veterans have the care and assistance they need. In short, by serving all those who have ever worn the uniform of this country – and their families – as well as they have served us.On April 25, 1866, about a year after the Civil War ended, a group of women visited a cemetery in Columbus, Mississippi, to place flowers by the graves of Confederate soldiers who had fallen at Shiloh. As they did, they noticed other graves nearby, belonging to Union dead. But no one had come to visit those graves, or place a flower there. So they decided to lay a few stems for those men too, in recognition not of a fallen Confederate or a fallen Union soldier, but a fallen American.A few years later, an organization of Civil War veterans established what became Memorial Day, selecting a date that coincided with the time when flowers were in bloom. So this weekend, as we commemorate Memorial Day, I ask you to hold all our fallen heroes in your hearts, and if you can, to lay a flower where they have come to rest.201005/104994The budget going through Congress can often come off as boring process, one too mired in details and political back-and-forth to be worth following. But the President traveled to Parkville Middle School and Center for Technology in Baltimore to unveil his budget plan this morning in a reflection of the fact that in the tough choices we face as a nation, our kids' futures are at stake. That's why the President's Budget would get our deficits under control, but it's also why he stands by investments in education, and it has a lot to do with why he supports investments in building a 21st Century infrastructure and fostering American innovation -- in short, a budget to win the future:Read the Transcript | Download Video: mp4 (169MB) | mp3 (16MB) 201102/125740

In our whole system,national and State,在我们的整个体系中,无论是国家的还是州立的,we have shunned all the defects which unceasingly preyed on the vitals and destroyed the ancient Republics.我们已避免了所有那些不停地危及利害,颠覆古代共和国的缺陷。In them there were distinct orders,a nobility and a people,它们中有明显的不同制度:或是一个贵族和一个民众,or the people governed in one assembly.或是由一个议会来管理民众。Thus,in the one instance there was a perpetual conflict between the orders in society for the ascendency,这样,在一个情况下社会的各阶级之间存在着无休止的冲突,in which the victory of either terminated in the overthrow of the government and the ruin of the state;其中任何一方的胜利都会造成推翻政府和国家覆亡;in the other,in which the people governed in a body,而在另一个情况下,人民由一个政体来统治,and whose dominions seldom exceeded the dimensions of a county in one of our States,而且其领土极少超过我们某个州的一个县的大小,a tumultuous and disorderly movement permitted only a transitory existence.喧闹而混乱的运动只允许一个短暂的生存。In this great nation there is but one order,that of the people,whose power,在我们这一伟大的国家只有一个制度,人民的制度;by a peculiarly happy improvement of the representative principle,is transferred from them,通过一个对代表制度非常完善的改进,按自由,开明,高效的政府的需要。without impairing in the slightest degree their sovereignty,to bodies of their own creation,他们的权利完全地被转移到他们自己所创立的多个政体,and to persons elected by themselves,in the full extent necessary for all the purposes of free,enlightened and efficient government.和他们选出的人员中,而没有丝毫损害他们的主权。The whole system is elective,the complete sovereignty being in the people,整个体制以选举为基础,主权彻底属于人民,and every officer in every department deriving his authority from and being responsible to them for his conduct.而且每个部门的每个官员的权力都来自于他们,并要对他们负责其行为举止。Our career has correspond with this great outline.我们的事业和这一宏伟的大纲相一致。Perfection in our organization could not have been expected in the outset either in the National or State Governments or in tracing the line between their respective powers.不能期望一开始在国家或州立的政府中,或是在它们各自权力之间的界线追溯中就完善我们的组织。But no serious conflict has arisen,nor any contest but such as are managed by argument and by a fair appeal to the good sense of the people,但是,我们没有严重的冲突,也没有任何纷争;而且这些可通过辨论处理,也通过公正地求助于民众的理智来解决。and many of the defects which experience had clearly demonstrated in both Governments have been remedied,并且我们也医治了许多以往经历中以上两种政府所显示出的缺点。By steadily pursuing this course in this spirit there is every reason to believe that our system will soon attain the highest degree of perfection of which human institutions are capable,通过坚定地以此精神实行此路线,我们完全有理由相信,我们的体制将很快达到人类机构所可能达到的最高程度的完善,and that the movement in all its branches will exhibit such a degree of order and harmony as to command the admiration and respect of the civilized world.并且,其所有分部的发展将展示一定程度的条理和谐调,以致引来文明世界的羡慕和尊敬。Entering with these views the office which I have just solemnly sworn to execute with fidelity and to the utmost of my ability,带着这些想法,即将进入我刚庄严宣誓要以忠心并尽我所能来履行的职责,I derive great satisfaction from a knowledge that I shall be assisted in the several Departments by the very enlightened and upright citizens from whom I have received so much aid in the preceding term.我因确信我将在多个部门中得到一组非常开明和正直的公民的辅助而感到非常满意。我的前任已给了我很多帮助。With full confidence in the continuance of that candor and generous indulgence from my fellow citizens at large which I have heretofore experienced,完全相信我至今为止所受到的同胞们普遍的坦诚和慷慨宽容会延续下去,and with a firm reliance on the protection of Almighty God.并坚定地依靠全能上帝的保护,I shall forthwith commence the duties of the high trust to which you have called me.现在我就将开始你们召唤我上任的被赋予如此高度信任的职务。01/436176

Ronald Reagan: The Evil EmpireRemarks at the Annual Convention of the the National Association of Evangelicalsdelivered 8 March1983, Orlando FLModerator: Ladies and Gentlemen: The President of the ed States, Ronald Reagan.President Reagan: Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Thank you very much.And, Reverend Clergy all, Senator Hawkins, distinguished members of the Florida conssional delegation, and all of you: I cant tell you how you have warmed my heart with your welcome. Im delighted to be here today.Those of you in the National Association of Evangelicals are known for your spiritual and humanitarian work. And I would be especially remiss if I didnt discharge right now one personal debt of gratitude. Thank you for your prayers. Nancy and I have felt their presence many times in many ways. And believe me, for us theyve made all the difference.The other day in the East Room of the White House at a meeting there, someone asked me whether I was aware of all the people out there who were praying for the President. And I had to say, ;Yes, I am. Ive felt it. I believe in intercessionary prayer.; But I couldnt help but say to that questioner after hed asked the question that -- or at least say to them that if sometimes when he was praying he got a busy signal, it was just me in there ahead of him. I think I understand how Abraham Lincoln felt when he said, ;I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go.; From the joy and the good feeling of this conference, I go to a political reception. Now, I dont know why, but that bit of scheduling reminds me of a story which Ill share with you.An evangelical minister and a politician arrived at Heavens gate one day together. And St. Peter, after doing all the necessary formalities, took them in hand to show them where their quarters would be. And he took them to a small, single room with a bed, a chair, and a table and said this was for the clergyman. And the politician was a little worried about what might be in store for him. And he couldnt believe it then when St. Peter stopped in front of a beautiful mansion with lovely grounds, many servants, and told him that these would be his quarters.And he couldnt help but ask, he said, ;But wait, how -- theres something wrong -- how do I get this mansion while that good and holy man only gets a single room?; And St. Peter said, ;You have to understand how things are up here. Weve got thousands and thousands of clergy. Youre the first politician who ever made it.;But I dont want to contribute to a stereotype. So I tell you there are a at many God-fearing, dedicated, noble men and women in public life, present company included. And yes, we need your help to keep us ever-mindful of the ideas and the principles that brought us into the public arena in the first place. The basis of those ideals and principles is a commitment to freedom and personal liberty that, itself is grounded in the much deeper realization that freedom prospers only where the blessings of God are avidly sought and humbly accepted.The American experiment in democracy rests on this insight. Its discovery was the at triumph of our Founding Fathers, voiced by William Penn when he said: ;If we will not be governed by God, we must be governed by tyrants.; Explaining the inalienable rights of men, Jefferson said, ;The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time.; And it was George Washington who said that ;of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.;And finally, that shrewdest of all observers of American democracy, Alexis de Tocqueville, put it eloquently after he had gone on a search for the secret of Americas atness and genius -- and he said: ;Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the atness and the genius of America. America is good. And if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be at.;Well, Im pleased to be here today with you who are keeping America at by keeping her good. Only through your work and prayers and those of millions of others can we hope to survive this perilous century and keep alive this experiment in liberty, this last, best hope of man.I want you to know that this administration is motivated by a political philosophy that sees the atness of America in you, her people, and in your families, churches, neighborhoods, communities: the institutions that foster and nourish values like concern for others and respect for the rule of law under God.Now, I dont have to tell you that this puts us in opposition to, or at least out of step with, a -- a prevailing attitude of many who have turned to a modern-day secularism, discarding the tried and time-tested values upon which our very civilization is based. No matter how well intentioned, their value system is radically different from that of most Americans. And while they proclaim that theyre freeing us from superstitions of the past, theyve taken upon thelves the job of superintending us by government rule and regulation. Sometimes their voices are louder than ours, but they are not yet a majority.An example of that vocal superiority is evident in a controversy now going on in Washington. And since Im involved Ive been waiting to hear from the parents of young America. How far are they willing to go in giving to government their prerogatives as parents?Let me state the case as briefly and simply as I can. An organization of citizens, sincerely motivated, deeply concerned about the increase in illegitimate births and abortions involving girls well below the age of consent, some time ago established a nationwide network of clinics to offer help to these girls and, hopefully, alleviate this situation. Now, again, let me say, I do not fault their intent. However, in their well-intentioned effort, these clinics decided to provide advice and birth control drugs and devices to underage girls without the knowledge of their parents.For some years now, the federal government has helped with funds to subsidize these clinics. In providing for this, the Conss decreed that every effort would be made to maximize parental participation. Nevertheless, the drugs and devices are prescribed without getting parental consent or giving notification after theyve done so. Girls termed ;sexually active; -- and that has replaced the word ;promiscuous; -- are given this help in order to prevent illegitimate birth or abortion.Well, we have ordered clinics receiving federal funds to notify the parents such help has been given. One of the nations leading newspapers has created the term ;squeal rule; in editorializing against us for doing this, and were being criticized for violating the privacy of young people. A judge has recently granted an injunction against an enforcement of our rule. Ive watched TV panel shows discuss this issue, seen columnists pontificating on our error, but no one seems to mention morality as playing a part in the subject of sex.Is all of Judeo-Christian tradition wrong? Are we to believe that something so sacred can be looked upon as a purely physical thing with no potential for emotional and psychological harm? And isnt it the parents right to give counsel and advice to keep their children from making mistakes that may affect their entire lives?Many of us in government would like to know what parents think about this intrusion in their family by government. Were going to fight in the courts. The right of parents and the rights of family take precedence over those of Washington-based bureaucrats and social engineers.But the fight against parental notification is really only one example of many attempts to water down traditional values and even abrogate the original terms of American democracy. Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged. When our Founding Fathers passed the First Amendment, they sought to protect churches from government interference. They never intended to construct a wall of hostility between government and the concept of religious belief itself.The evidence of this permeates our history and our government. The Declaration of Independence mentions the Supreme Being no less than four times. ;In God We Trust; is engraved on our coinage. The Supreme Court opens its proceedings with a religious invocation. And the members of Conss open their sessions with a prayer. I just happen to believe the schoolchildren of the ed States are entitled to the same privileges as Supreme Court justices and conssmen.Last year, I sent the Conss a constitutional amendment to restore prayer to public schools. Aly this session, theres growing bipartisan support for the amendment, and I am calling on the Conss to act speedily to pass it and to let our children pray.Perhaps some of you recently about the Lubbock school case, where a judge actually ruled that it was unconstitutional for a school district to give equal treatment to religious and nonreligious student groups, even when the group meetings were being held during the students own time. The First Amendment never intended to require government to discriminate against religious speech.Senators Denton and Hatfield have proposed legislation in the Conss on the whole question of prohibiting discrimination against religious forms of student speech. Such legislation could go far to restore freedom of religious speech for public school students. And I hope the Conss considers these bills quickly. And with your help, I think its possible we could also get the constitutional amendment through the Conss this year.More than a decade ago, a Supreme Court decision literally wiped off the books of fifty states statutes protecting the rights of unborn children. Abortion on demand now takes the lives of up to one and a half million unborn children a year. Human life legislation ending this tragedy will someday pass the Conss, and you and I must never rest until it does. Unless and until it can be proven that the unborn child is not a living entity, then its right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness must be protected.You may remember that when abortion on demand began, many, and indeed, Im sure many of you, warned that the practice would lead to a decline in respect for human life, that the philosophical premises used to justify abortion on demand would ultimately be used to justify other attacks on the sacredness of human life -- infanticide or mercy killing. Tragically enough, those warnings proved all too true. Only last year a court permitted the death by starvation of a handicapped infant.I have directed the Health and Human Services Department to make clear to every health care facility in the ed States that the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 protects all handicapped persons against discrimination based on handicaps, including infants. And we have taken the further step of requiring that each and every recipient of federal funds who provides health care services to infants must post and keep posted in a conspicuous place a notice stating that ;discriminatory failure to feed and care for handicapped infants in this facility is prohibited by federal law.; It also lists a twenty-four-hour; toll-free number so that nurses and others may report violations in time to save the infants life.In addition, recent legislation introduced by -- in the Conss by Representative Henry Hyde of Illinois not only increases restrictions on publicly financed abortions, it also addresses this whole problem of infanticide. I urge the Conss to begin hearings and to adopt legislation that will protect the right of life to all children, including the disabled or handicapped.Now, Im sure that you must get discouraged at times, but there youve done better than you know, perhaps. Theres a at spiritual awakening in America, a renewal of the traditional values that have been the bedrock of Americas goodness and atness.One recent survey by a Washington-based research council concluded that Americans were far more religious than the people of other nations; 95 percent of those surveyed expressed a belief in God and a huge majority believed the Ten Commandments had real meaning in their lives. And another study has found that an overwhelming majority of Americans disapprove of adultery, teenage sex, pornography, abortion, and hard drugs. And this same study showed a deep reverence for the importance of family ties and religious belief.I think the items that weve discussed here today must be a key part of the nations political agenda. For the first time the Conss is openly and seriously debating and dealing with the prayer and abortion issues and thats enormous pross right there. I repeat: America is in the midst of a spiritual awakening and a moral renewal. And with your biblical keynote, I say today, ;Yes, let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream.;Now, obviously, much of this new political and social consensus Ive talked about is based on a positive view of American history, one that takes pride in our countrys accomplishments and record. But we must never forget that no government schemes are going to perfect man. We know that living in this world means dealing with what philosophers would call the phenomenology of evil or, as theologians would put it, the doctrine of sin.There is sin and evil in the world, and were enjoined by Scripture and the Lord Jesus to oppose it with all our might. Our nation, too, has a legacy of evil with which it must deal. The glory of this land has been its capacity for transcending the moral evils of our past. For example, the long struggle of minority citizens for equal rights, once a source of disunity and civil war is now a point of pride for all Americans. We must never go back. There is no room for racism, anti-Semitism, or other forms of ethnic and racial hatred in this country.I know that youve been horrified, as have I, by the resurgence of some hate groups preaching bigotry and prejudice. Use the mighty voice of your pulpits and the powerful standing of your churches to denounce and isolate these hate groups in our midst. The commandment given us is clear and simple: ;Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.;But whatever sad episodes exist in our past, any objective observer must hold a positive view of American history, a history that has been the story of hopes fulfilled and dreams made into reality. Especially in this century, America has kept alight the torch of freedom, but not just for ourselves but for millions of others around the world.And this brings me to my final point today. During my first press conference as president, in answer to a direct question, I pointed out that, as good Marxist-Leninists, the Soviet leaders have openly and publicly declared that the only morality they recognize is that which will further their cause, which is world revolution. I think I should point out I was only ing Lenin, their guiding spirit, who said in 1920 that they repudiate all morality that proceeds from supernatural ideas -- thats their name for religion -- or ideas that are outside class conceptions. Morality is entirely subordinate to the interests of class war. And everything is moral that is necessary for the annihilation of the old, exploiting social order and for uniting the proletariat.Well, I think the refusal of many influential people to accept this elementary fact of Soviet doctrine illustrates a historical reluctance to see totalitarian powers for what they are. We saw this phenomenon in the 1930s. We see it too often today.This doesnt mean we should isolate ourselves and refuse to seek an understanding with them. I intend to do everything I can to persuade them of our peaceful intent, to remind them that it was the West that refused to use its nuclear monopoly in the forties and fifties for territorial gain and which now proposes 50 percent cut in strategic ballist ic missiles and the elimination of an entire class of land-based, intermediate-range nuclear missiles.At the same time, however, they must be made to understand we will never compromise our principles and standards. We will never give away our freedom. We will never abandon our belief in God. And we will never stop searching for a genuine peace. But we can assure none of these things America stands for through the so-called nuclear freeze solutions proposed by some.The truth is that a freeze now would be a very dangerous fraud, for that is merely the illusion of peace. The reality is that we must find peace through strength.I would ae to a freeze if only we could freeze the Soviets global desires. A freeze at current levels of weapons would remove any incentive for the Soviets to negotiate seriously in Geneva and virtually end our chances to achieve the major arms reductions which we have proposed. Instead, they would achieve their objectives through the freeze.A freeze would reward the Soviet Union for its enormous and unparalleled military buildup. It would prevent the essential and long overdue modernization of ed States and allied defenses and would leave our aging forces increasingly vulnerable. And an honest freeze would require extensive prior negotiations on the systems and numbers to be limited and on the measures to ensure effective verification and compliance. And the kind of a freeze that has been suggested would be virtually impossible to verify. Such a major effort would divert us completely from our current negotiations on achieving substantial reductions.A number of years ago, I heard a young father, a very prominent young man in the entertainment world, addressing a tremendous gathering in California. It was during the time of the cold war, and communism and our own way of life were very much on peoples minds. And he was speaking to that subject. And suddenly, though, I heard him saying, ;I love my little girls more than anything.; And I said to myself, ;Oh, no, dont. You cant -- dont say that.; But I had underestimated him. He went on: ;I would rather see my little girls die now; still believing in God, than have them grow up under communism and one day die no longer believing in God.;There were thousands of young people in that audience. They came to their feet with shouts of joy. They had instantly recognized the profound truth in what he had said, with regard to the physical and the soul and what was truly important.Yes, let us pray for the salvation of all of those who live in that totalitarian darkness. Pray they will discover the joy of knowing God. But until they do, let us be aware that while they preach the supremacy of the State, declare its omnipotence over individual man, and predict its eventual domination of all peoples on the earth, they are the focus of evil in the modern world.It was C.S. Lewis who, in his unforgettable Screw Tape Letters, wrote: ;The atest evil is not done now in those sordid dens of crime that Dickens loved to paint. It is not even done in concentration camps and labor camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered; moved, seconded, carried and minuted in clear, carpeted, warmed, and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voice.;Well, ause these quiet men do not raise their voices, ause they sometimes speak in soothing tones of brotherhood and peace, ause, like other dictators before them, theyre always making ;their final territorial demand,; some would have us accept them at their word and accommodate ourselves to their agssive impulses. But if history teaches anything, it teaches that simpleminded appeasement or wishful thinking about our adversaries is folly. It means the betrayal of our past, the squandering of our freedom.So, I urge you to speak out against those who would place the ed States in a position of military and moral inferiority. You know, Ive always believed that old Screw Tape reserved his best efforts for those of you in the Church. So, in your discussions of the nuclear freeze proposals, I urge you to beware the temptation of pride --the temptation of blithely declaring yourselves above it all and label both sides equally at fault, to ignore the facts of history and the agssive impulses of an evil empire, to simply call the arms race a giant misunderstanding and thereby remove yourself from the struggle between right and wrong and good and evil.I ask you to resist the attempts of those who would have you withhold your support for our efforts, this administrations efforts, to keep America strong and free, while we negotiate real and verifiable reductions in the worlds nuclear arsenals and one day, with Gods help, their total elimination.While Americas military strength is important, let me add here that Ive always maintained that the struggle now going on for the world will never be decided by bombs or rockets, by armies or military might. The real crisis we face today is a spiritual one; at root, it is a test of moral will and faith.Whittaker Chambers, the man whose own religious conversion made him a witness to one of the terrible traumas of our time, the Hiss-Chambers case, wrote that the crisis of the Western world exists to the dee in which the West is indifferent to God, the dee to which it collaborates in communisms attempt to make man stand alone without God. And then he said, for Marxism-Leninism is actually the second-oldest faith, first proclaimed in the Garden of Eden with the words of temptation, ;Ye shall be as gods.;The Western world can answer this challenge, he wrote, ;but only provided that its faith in God and the freedom He enjoins is as at as communisms faith in Man.;I believe we shall rise to the challenge. I believe that communism is another sad, bizarre chapter in human history whose last -- last pages even now are being written. I believe this ause the source of our strength in the quest for human freedom is not material, but spiritual. And ause it knows no limitation, it must terrify and ultimately triumph over those who would enslave their fellow man. For in the words of Isaiah: ;He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might He increased strength. But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary. ;Yes, change your world. One of our Founding Fathers, Thomas Paine, said, ;We have it within our power to begin the world over again.; We can do it, doing together what no one church could do by itself.God bless you and thank you very much. /201205/182118
