Men fought and die for what they believed to right. When this country was founded there were certain landmarks which were set up by our forefathers.

But it was founded so that you and I could go to church.
God has blessed the United States of America because He said,
"I will bless a nation whose God is the Lord"
But I want you to know that this is slowly coming to a halt. He is no longer there God.
No other nation has been blessed, other than Israel, like the U.S. and I know the reason why.
