Jody Hice on Foreign Policy



View America as good, or dishonor our founding principles

A major difference in us conservatives and those on the political left is that we understand that the United States is not just historically a great nation, but we are a good nation. As Alexis de Tocqueville observed in the 19th-century, "America is great because she is good." Sadly, many on the left today do not view our nation as good. They dishonor our founding principles and our history. They willfully ignore that America has done more to spread freedom, resist tyranny, bring hope, opportunity, and prosperity, and relieve human suffering than any people who have ever lived.

The United States of America is a positive good in the world. But goodness without military power and the will to use it when necessary is impotence. Wise leadership today understands that the world is a dangerous place. It's dangerous because of the Hitler's, Stalin's, Castro's, Chavez's, Ahmadinejad's, and Osama bin Laden's of the world. People who hate human liberty, and place no value on human life.

World hates America for our immoral freedom

Today, much of the world looks at America with disdain and hatred. Why do they hate us? Hamas' foreign minister, Mahmood al-Zahar, said, "The West brought all this freedom to its people but it is that freedom that has brought about the death of morality in the West. It's what led to phenomena like homosexuality, homelessness and AIDS."

The Hamas chief is saying, "you Americans flaunt your freedom, but it is your freedom that has produced every unthinkable immorality." He believes the Islamic worldview is superior because it is more moral. Their culture will not tolerate such vile behavior as our 'freedoms' permit. He hates what our liberties have given to the world.

Unfortunately, in his criticism he has misdiagnosed the problem. The problem is not our FREEDOM; it has served us, and the world well for centuries. The problem is that we are trying to exercise liberty from a secular humanist worldview, and it does not work!

Islamists are radical and dangerous national enemies

For those Muslims in America who have nothing to do with jihad, let them worship freely. But for those who follow the dictates of the Koran's radical teaching they must be viewed as national enemies. Their worldview will eventually lead to violent behavior because it is based on a teaching calling them to world control (caliphate) and to the destruction of our Constitution. All those who embrace the entire teachings of the Koran are radical and dangerous; they are 'Islamists.' Similarly, 'Islam' is much more than a religious belief, and must also be considered radical and dangerous! Believe me, radical Islam is already changing the way you live in America whether you are aware of it or not!
