We’re a weaker America

 

Powder-puff sanctions by this administration are the new diplomacy of America.

We are now involved in the game of how to impose sanctions on Russia without hurting President Vladimir Putin’s feelings. History is repeated by the clone of former President Jimmy Carter. Carter gave away the Panama Canal and weakened our military. President Obama gives away the Internet and weakens our military. What’s next? Give the Statue of Liberty back to France?

This is not the country I grew up in. We were respected and our enemies were afraid to wake the sleeping tiger. Now we are looked at with contempt, and our threats are laughed at. It is past time to get a new set of leaders who know that Americans are truly exceptional.
