My State of the Union Address

By Derek Hunter

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump will deliver the State of the Union Address to a joint session of Congress. Rather than speculate as to what he’s going to say and how Democrats will respond to it, this is the speech I would give were I President of the United States.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the state of our union is strong. But it’s not as strong as it could be, not as strong as it should be, and not nearly as strong as it would be if we had 2 parties making the safety, security, and prosperity of the American people their top priorities.

Are you also a tired American?

 

I came across an article the other day that appeared in a magazine on February 16, 1966 – that is more than a half century ago.

The article was titled “I am a tired American” – and it says a lot and gives hope that this country will come through the current crisis as it has in the past.

I don’t know the author of the article, but I don’t think they would mind of sharing the message again – 53 years later.
