TRThursday: The Things that Will Destroy America

TRThursday

While Theodore Roosevelt got a number of things wrong as president, he had great insight into what makes America strong or weak, and his words can easily be applied to any nation. Time and again, he enjoined people to not give in to soft-living but instead pursue the strenuous life of hard-work and purpose. He was certainly no hypocrite in this area.

Today’s #TRThursday quote is as applicable as it has ever been. Are there any of these that we are not about these days?

Theodore-Roosevelt Destroy America_Fotor

The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft-living, and the get-rich-quick theory of life. – Theodore Roosevelt

Final Thoughts

Notice how each of the points that TR gives is about character, not politics or the fiscal state of the union. Of course, he knows, as do we, that each of these bleed over into public life and the running of the country. As the people go, so goes the nation. As the men go, so go the people.
