Quote of the Day (Theodore Roosevelt, on What 'Will Destroy America’)

“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, Letter to the Proceedings of the Congress of Constructive Patriotism, January 10, 1917

I agree with TR. However, I wonder how TR would feel about the unecessary wars of choice this nation has involved itself in over the past 50 years? Oh, who am I kidding? He would have loved them.
