I live in the United States, and we have some ideals in common, even though our country isn’t perfect and we currently have people in power many believe are trying to tear down the foundations and principles our country was built on. It is good to be vigilant and to have people at home united in wanting to protect their nation from enemies both outside and inside their country.

My country has plenty of good people willing to serve honorably in our Armed Forces and National Guard. It is unity as to vision and purpose we lack, as our very leadership seems to be undermining those willing to serve by making it impossible for them to fight to win. The government has evidence that some extreme groups in our country are aligned with terrorists overseas, yet they turn their backs and, instead, send our military to fight the enemy overseas. I am hoping this kind of government will be voted out this year and that people not so easily fooled by enemy propaganda will be put in power and be allowed to do whatever they need to do to stop ISIS.
