Happy Birthday to our first president, George Washington.
What a contrast there is between Washington and our current president.
It was cold. It was wet. Yet Washington was leading, and not from behind. He was a brave man. Ever in the thick of it. Seemingly unafraid. A leader.

President’s Day: February 18, 2013
Rev. Larry Wallenmeyer, Patriotic Action, put together an exceptional series of photos revealing George Washington’s and Abraham Lincoln’s words. His work is being posted here for our readers. The wisdom of our former presidents as seen in their words are as pertinent today as they were in their time. Indeed, they are timeless. Let us celebrate President’s Day.
Let their words serve as a reminder of America’s exceptionalism, and its traditions and values that are currently being destroyed by the Left’s determination to transform our nation. During these days of a rogue and corrupt Anti-American administration, the wisdom of our forefathers will renew our spirit and fight to keep what they fought for… freedom and liberty for all.
The man serving as our president today will never have his words repeated years from now, nor will his words ever inspire like those of Washington and Lincoln whose heads were carved into the side of a mountain, Mt. Rushmore. In time, Obama’s words will do the opposite. Obama’s words will be used like those of other tyrannical leaders such as Mao, Hitler, and Stalin. His legacy and words will be relegated to the dustbins of history where they belong. As George Washington said, they are “bad company.”
May the words of these great men continue to inspire us, and renew our determination to fight to maintain all that we hold near and dear. God Bless America!
Thank you Larry.

City of New York, October 3, 1789.
Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor, and Whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee 77 requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanks-giving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”78
Our Real Heroes of the United States of America!
George Washington was our First President of the United States and served from 1789 – 97. He is considered the “Father of our Nation.” He was born February 22 , 1732, in Westmoreland County, Virginia and died December 14, 1799 at Mount Vernon, Virginia. He was ambitious, honorable, and decent, but only wanted admiration and respect. He didn’t want to be king. He was the commander in chief of the colonial armies during the American Revolution (1775–83).
