Get it Everywhere

Thirteen clocks struck as one

And a new world had begun

‘Twas a miracle then

We need a miracle now

 

For We the People

Best hope, last stand on the earth

United we stand, we prevail 

Believe we’ll endure  

Never forget   

The Spirit of our heroes

 

We share a common creed and we’re free

To pursue our big dreams

Destiny burns in our hearts

We reach beyond the stars

 

That’s We the People

 

Something’s going on

In time and space      

A force is on the move

In this human race     

There is no left           

There is no right

We go up or we go down

If a time should come we have to choose    

It’ll be the fight we cannot lose

This future belongs to the brave (Lord, heal our land today)

This future belongs to…

We the People

Thirteen clocks struck as one…

“The Colonies had grown up under Constitutions of Government, So different, there was so great a Variety of Religions, they were composed of So many different Nations, their Customs, Manners and Habits had So little resemblance, and their Intercourse had been so rare and their Knowledge of each other So imperfect, that to unite them in the Same Principles in Theory and the Same System of Action was certainly a very difficult Enterprize. The compleat Accomplishment of it, in So Short a time and by Such Simple means, was perhaps a Singular Example in the History of Mankind. Thirteen Clocks were made to Strike together; a perfection of Mechanism which no Artist had ever before effected.”

– From John Adams to Hezekiah Niles, 13 February, 1818

 

‘Twas a miracle then…

“A contemplation of the compleat attainment (at a period earlier than could have been expected) of the object for which we contended, against so formidable a power, cannot but inspire us with astonishment and gratitude—The disadvantageous circumstances on our part, under which the War was undertaken, can never be forgotten—The singular interpositions of Providence in our feeble condition were such, as could scarcely escape the attention of the most unobserving, while the unparalleled perseverance of the Armies of the United States, through almost every possible suffering and discouragement, for the space of eight long years, was little short of a standing Miracle..”

– George Washington’s Farewell Address to the Army, 2 November 1783

 

We the People…

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

Preamble to the United States Constitution

 

Best hope, last stand on the earth…

“We’ll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we’ll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.”

“This is the last stand on earth.”

-Ronald Reagan,  A Time for Choosing, October 27, 1964

 

Believe we’ll endure…

“This is preeminently the time to speak the truth, the whole truth, frankly and boldly. Nor need we shrink from honestly facing conditions in our country today. This great Nation will endure, as it has endured, will revive and will prosper.”

– Franklin Delano Roosevelt, First Inaugural Address, March 4, 1933

 

The Spirit of our heroes

 “We will summon the spirit of generations of American Patriots before us, like those heroes who crossed the Delaware, conquered the Rockies, stormed the beaches, won the battles, and tamed the unknown frontiers. We will persist, and we will prevail.”

Donald J. Trump, CPAC 2021 Speech, Feb 28, 2021″

“Spirit, that made those heroes dare
   To die, and leave their children free,
Bid Time and Nature gently spare
   The shaft we raise to them and thee.”

  – Ralph Waldo Emerson, Concord Hymn, Sung at the Completion of the Battle Monument, July 4, 1837

“If nothing in life is worth dying for, when did this begin — just in the face of this enemy? Or should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the pharaohs? Should Christ have refused the cross? Should the patriots at Concord Bridge have thrown down their guns and refused to fire the shot heard ’round the world? The martyrs of history were not fools, and our honored dead who gave their lives to stop the advance of the Nazis didn’t die in vain.”

– Ronald Reagan,  A Time for Choosing, October 27, 1964

 

We share a common creed…

“We must never forsake our belief in America. The key to national greatness lies in sustaining and instilling our shared national identity. That means focusing on what we have in common, the heritage that we all share.” 

-Donald J. Trump, Farewell address, January 21, 2021

 

To pursue our big dreams, destiny burns in our hearts…

“No dream is too big, no challenge is too great.”

“We must reclaim our country’s destiny and dream big and bold and daring.” 

– Donald J. Trump, Victory speech, Nov 9, 2016

 

United we stand…

“When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice. The Bible tells us, how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity. We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements, but always pursue solidarity. When America is united, America is totally unstoppable.”

 -Donald J, Trump, Inaugural address, January 20, 2017

“United we stand. Divided we fall. Divided, the dark age returns. United, we can save and guide the world!”

-Winston Churchill, The Old Lion, June 16, 1941

 

Something’s going on in space and time

“The destiny of mankind is not decided by material computation. When great causes are on the move in the world, stirring all men’s souls, drawing them from their firesides, casting aside comfort, wealth and the pursuit of happiness in response to impulses at once awe-striking and irresistible, we learn that we are spirits, not animals, and that something is going on in space and time, and beyond space and time, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty.”

-Winston Churchill, The Old Lion, June 16, 1941

 

There is no left, there is no right…

“You and I are told increasingly we have to choose between a left or right. Well I’d like to suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There’s only an up or down: [up] man’s old — old-aged dream, the ultimate in individual freedom consistent with law and order, or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism. And regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would trade our freedom for security have embarked on this downward course.”

-Ronald Reagan A Time for Choosing, October 27 1964

“We restored the principle that a nation exists to serve its citizens. Our agenda was not about right or left. It wasn’t about Republican or Democrat, but about the good of a nation, and that means the whole nation.”

-Donald J. Trump, Farewell address, January 21, 2021

 

The future belongs to the brave

“The future doesn’t belong to the fainthearted; it belongs to the brave.”

Address to the Nation, January 28, 1986
