Without doubt, America is in decline in all four of her classic instruments of national power – Diplomacy, Information/Intelligence, Military, and Economy. I suggest this is a direct consequence of an extended period in which our leaders not only have failed to follow the principles of Virtue-Based Leadership, but have been openly hostile to them.
Yet we are also in a key election year when we have exceptional opportunities to influence, shape, and select our leaders, and to demand virtuous leadership from them. We are also on the crux of a revival in our families, communities, and nation which I pray will lead to action not only this year, but in building and preparing virtuous leaders for the future.
I am excited to see a return to such leadership in this country today, and to the development of virtuous leaders for tomorrow, and am actively seeking opportunities to champion this vision.
