I am hopeful that the new year will bring this nation into an era of prosperity and direction of civil unity. Our people face a very grave challenge, and these times we now struggle with are a test we must fight together against the planning of the state which is threatening our sense of accountability, individualism, innovation of creativity and basic human rights.
This is the moment for us to take back our fundamentals and begin again the enterprise and urgency of this point in our history.
America is an exceptional country. We strive for excellence. With strength of our principles and truth we will advance to a higher plane of the American ideal.
Our commitment, as this time approaches, is the backbone of our mission. Let liberty, industry and the preservation of our dignity and respect take hold as we flourish in our communities as well as our foothold in the world.
