A sad time for America

I was watching an interview with Congressman Mike Pence (R-IN) this morning. Mr. Pence made the point that when President Reagan called the Soviet Union an evil empire it provided great encouragement for those imprisoned in Soviet gulags for their political views. And when President Reagan went to the Berlin Wall, his message was "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!" It was NOT, "Mr. Gorbachev, this wall is none of our business."

Our current President, on the other hand, refuses to provide encouragement for those risking their safety and lives in the streets of Iran. Instead, even in the face of what was clearly an election sham, he says it is none of our business. Our President refuses to take a stand for freedom even against a theocracy sworn to destroy us and our allies.

It is truly a sad time for America.
