Sometimes it take an "outsider" to see things the way they are.
"America’s greatness was very much a function of the visionary pragmatism of its founding fathers."
"The common sense decision to pursue
liberty, equality and individual well-being was achieved through
creativity, openness and consensus based on compromise. American
leadership internationally is based on not only its economic prosperity,
but also the sense of hope it brings to those who seek peace and
development. The country has achieved great things and the American
dream stays alive in a society that offers all the possibilities that
are created because America is a leader in the pursuit of open markets,
technological innovation, and equal opportunity."
"Unfortunately, this sense of hope will wane if America continues on its current path."
