Think for a second and ask yourself: Would the world be a more or less safe place if there was no such thing as the United States of America?
There are many parts of the world that, I believe, would be a lot less safe if America was not around.
The reason for this is because Americans understand that their are great powers of evil in the world and they believe it is their obligation to end evil.
The primary reason that Americans has done so much good for the world is because they have fought evil.
The truth is that Americans die for others to give other people around the world better lives. One example is in the case of South Korea. Why is it that Psy, a singer from South Korea with the famous song “Gangnam Style” is able to get worldwide fame and travel around the country while earning money without being restricted or punished by his government?
The incredibly important reason for this is because of the Korean War when the United States liberated South Korea from Communism, the biggest mass-murdering ideology in history. It is because of the United States that South Korea is not like North Korea today.
Americans are so blessed with this precious gift of Liberty and they feel as if they should risk their lives to share it with other people of the world.
Some may argue that Americans intervene in other countries for economic means. But what was in Korea that would help the U.S. economically? Rubber? What was in the Nazi death camps where the US intervened to liberate that was so important economically?
Unfortunately, many people, especially the youth in society are starting to be taught that instead of fighting evil, fighting is evil; the antithesis of what America has done to stop evil in history. This idea of not fighting evil is a very dangerous and foolish approach.
Sometimes to end evil, you have to fight evil. The way the United States liberated South Korea, Vietnam, death camps, and Iraq was by fighting. Evil people do not care about a deal on a signed paper. They care about destroying people who are good. That is why the President of Iran wishes to “wipe Israel off the map;” the Jewish state about the size of New Jersey and El Salvador that wishes nothing, but peace with its enemies. The reason Israel still exists today is because it is fighting its neighbors who wish to destroy it; not because they believe “war is not the answer.”
I believe America is truly exceptional. One of the reasons is because of its urge to give freedom to others in the world. How many Germans, Swedes, Italians, French die to give freedom to others like America has? America itself is essential, especially in terms of retaining liberty and safety. I cannot imagine the dark world we would live in without the United States of America and its unique values.
I believe just as it says on the Liberty Bell from the Hebrew Bible: “Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.”
