For being the most popular politician in the world, President Obama is sure making a precedent of prostrating himself before a lot of heads-of-state. This flies in the face of American tradition, and our proud independence from a monarchy. Some recent items to think about:
- Bowing deeply to the Emperor of Japan (not even General MacArthur did this after we conquered Japan)
- Bowing deeply to the King of Saudi Arabia (home to the majority of the 9/11 hijackers and the Wahabi sect that seeks our destruction)
- Begging to hold one-on-one talks with Iran, and being rebuffed (while not bowing, you get the picture)
- Begging to hold one-on-one talks with North Korea, and being rebuffed
The United States Navy never salutes first on the open seas. We had to fight for our independence from a totalitarian regime, and some forget that. We must never prostrate ourselves before another ruler. It does not earn points, it does not show a global appreciation. It conveys weakness.
We bow to the Almighty and the Almighty alone. Our Constitution recognizes unalienable God given rights, and it is because He is the source of our liberty and freedom (a freedom that we are tasked to defend), that we bow to Him.
What has the Emperor of Japan, King Saud, Ahamedinejad of Iran or Kim Jong Il in DPRK done for you lately?
