Casa D' Ice Address on America

Two score and eighteen years ago our leaders brought forth on this continent the greatest nation on earth, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that no other nation could equal us. Now we are engaged in a great challenge of endurance and survival, testing whether that nation, or any other nation that was so strong and so powerful can long endure. We are meet on a great battlefield, it is a new war consisting of economic, industrial and political struggles. We are losing many of these battlefields as our congress and politicians allow the out sourcing of our jobs and companies, along with the failure to remedy our broken borders. This is not why many gave their lives so that this nation may live. It is also fitting and proper that we correct this. But in a larger sense, we cannot Dedicate, we cannot Consecrate- we cannot hallow this country. The brave men and women, living and dead, who struggled here, have Consecrated it, far above our politicians to add and detract. The world has always looked to America for assurance, support, leadership and assistance which she gave unconditionally. It is for us the VOTERS rather than remain complaisant but take back the country which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us--that is to vote out every incumbent in the Senate and Congress. After all anything has to be better than what we have now. That from these new and fresh politicians we can take increased devotion to our cause for which many gave the last full measure of devotion. That we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain- that this nation under God, shall have NEW GROWTH--- NEW BUSINESS--and NEW JOBS, along with ENERGY INDEPENDENCE and BORDER SECURITY----and that Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
