I once had an assignment with the United Nations in which I worked in Egypt with officers from the Soviet Union and other nations. This was during the Cold War years, with Leonid Brezhnev in power. As a young U.S. Navy lieutenant, the job was exciting in certain ways. I learned different things through the relationships I made, but some things stayed with me for life. One has been that people, no matter where they’re from, all have the same basic needs. All have the need for sustenance, family and shelter. All seek to be content. All feel emotions, both good and bad. All desire to live life to best of their ability. The representatives from the Soviet Union, along with the other nations, were people with the same basic needs as us Americans.

In America, people want good jobs, food on the table, peace in their neighborhoods, protection against oppression, and good family relationships. Well, utopias don’t exist, and although America is not perfect, it is a great start.

For people who want the values that once made America great, I recommend they vote out the Democrats and establishment Republicans. Support Tea Party candidates and those with Judeo-Christian values. Reject the bogus propaganda and globalist agenda of the political left. Pray and stand for America.
