When you turn your heart and your life over to Christ, when you accept Christ as the savior, it changes your heart.”

God is not on the side of any nation, yet we know He is on the side of justice. Our finest moments [as a nation] have come when we faithfully served the cause of justice for our own citizens, and for the people of other lands.”

Those of us who love our country don’t have much to be thankful right about now.  We are being assaulted by the idiots of the far right, by Losertarians, and then by the Democrats.  We currently being harassed by extreme conservatives who want to destroy the GOP and our country by making our party smaller, by demanding a purity test. A number of the people who scream “RINO” and damn George W. Bush are so NOT Republican.  We’re talking about a man who governed more conservative than Reagan.  Cut more taxes than Reagan, had a lower deficit than Reagan, and appointed more conservative judges than Reagan.  Today – both men are being thrown under the bus by radical idiots.

I believe that God has planted in every human heart the desire to live in freedom. And even when that desire is crushed by tyranny for decades, it will rise again.”

Do I think faith will be an important part of being a good president? Yes, I do.”

Faith crosses every border and touches every heart in every nation.”

Government does not create wealth. The major role for the government is to create an environment where people take risks to expand the job rate in the United States.”

I believe the most solemn duty of the American president is to protect the American people. If America shows uncertainty and weakness in this decade, the world will drift toward tragedy. This will not happen on my watch.”

I think you can judge from somebody’s actions a kind of a stability and sense of purpose perhaps created by strong religious roots. I mean, there’s a certain patience, a certain discipline, I think, that religion helps you achieve.”

Leadership to me means duty, honor, country. It means character, and it means listening from time to time.”

Some folks look at me and see a certain swagger, which in Texas is called “walking.

The momentum of freedom in our world is unmistakable – and it is not carried forward by our power alone. We can trust in that greater power Who guides the unfolding of the years. And in all that is to come, we can know that His purposes are just and true.”

The wisest use of American strength is to advance freedom.”

To those of you who received honours, awards and distinctions, I say well done. And to the C students, I say you, too, can be president of the United States.”

We will build new ships to carry man forward into the universe, to gain a new foothold on the moon and to prepare for new journeys to the worlds beyond our own.”

When I take action, I’m not going to fire a $2 million missile at a $10 empty tent and hit a camel in the butt. It’s going to be decisive.”

You can’t put democracy and freedom back into a box.”

“…“My faith plays a big part in my life. And when I was answering that question what I was really saying to the person was that I pray a lot. And I do. And my faith is a very, it’s very personal. I pray for strength. I pray for wisdom. I pray for our troops in harm’s way. I pray for my family. I pray for my little girls.

“But I’m mindful in a free society that people can worship if they want to or not. You’re equally an American if you choose to worship an Almighty and if you choose not to. If you’re a Christian, Jew or Muslim you’re equally an American. That’s the great thing about America is the right to worship the way you see fit. Prayer and religion sustain me. I receive calmness in the storms of the presidency. I love the fact that people pray for me and my family all around the country. Somebody asked me one time, how do you know? I said I just feel it.

“Religion is an important part. I never want to impose my religion on anybody else. But when I make decisions I stand on principle. And the principles are derived from who I am. I believe we ought to love our neighbor like we love ourself. That’s manifested in public policy through the faith-based initiative where we’ve unleashed the armies of compassion to help heal people who hurt. I believe that God wants everybody to be free. That’s what I believe. And that’s one part of my foreign policy. In Afghanistan I believe that the freedom there is a gift from the Almighty. And I can’t tell you how encouraged how I am to see freedom on the march. And so my principles that I make decisions on are a part of me. And religion is a part of me.”…”
