Yes, deep in our hearts we all know that God has definitely blessed America.
God has a reason for everything. So then why did God bless America?
In Thomas Jefferson’s 1st Annual Message as 3rd President of the United States of America, December 8, 1801, he touched on the answer:
“…We contemplate this rapid growth and the prospect it holds up to us, not with a view to the injuries it may enable us to do others in some future day, but to the settlement of the extensive country still remaining vacant within our limits to the multiplication of men susceptible of happiness, educated in the love of order, habituated to self-government, and valuing its blessings above all price.
“Shall we refuse the unhappy fugitives from distress that hospitality which the savages of the wilderness extended to our fathers arriving in this land? Shall oppressed humanity find no asylum on this globe? The Constitution, indeed, has wisely provided that for admission to certain offices of important trust a residence shall be required sufficient to develop character and design. But might not the general character and capabilities of a citizen be safely communicated to every one manifesting a bona fide purpose of embarking his life and fortunes permanently with us?”
The world desperately needs a beacon of hope for the oppressed and downtrodden. America is that beacon of hope, ordained by God it seems. The land of immigrants. The land of opportunity.
It’s time to fix this…
We have sweeping stretches of undeveloped land. In the 18th and 19th centuries, we opened specific territories to immigrants, creating opportunities and pathways for those willing to work hard.
We have two centuries worth of examples. We can look to the past to guide us toward the future. Securing our borders doesn’t have to be a crisis.
