Does anyone except me remember when people like Senators Cruz, Santorum, and Fox News Joseph Goebbels (Sean Hannity), accused President Obama of being weak with our foreign dignitaries and bowing?

President Obama was being courteous to the customs of those dignitaries. But always leave it to some…

Hebrews 11:6 — And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

Americans, when you don't do your research and just vote from inflamed rhetoric, you end up with a Donald Trump.
