Country should be top priority

With the passing of President Bush, that legacy of America is slowly dwindling from the leadership of America. He, along with other women and men that fought for their country, put America first and their political affiliation second.

As we see in our governments — from villages to senates and even as high up as presidents — the love of their country first is dissipating. When we look back in history, those who fought in wars gave us women and men that fought for America, fighting for their country first and then becoming our elected officials. That attitude of America first, party second is the opposite today.

Someone once said that if you were in a fox hole, America came first and your political affiliation second.

Who would you want to lead your country?
