When people present themselves as moral leaders on any platform at any level, their actions automatically commit them to live by a higher standard…
This means their actions weigh even more than their own words…
And when actions are hypocritical as they come, have not those actions only proven the validity of the argument for their counterparts?
Or have not those actions proven the owners lack the wisdom and intelligence to present their argument?…
Some people that present themselves as moral leaders believe they have to demand respect and everything else will fall into line afterward…
And that attitude is as backward as it comes.
The only path to commanding honor
starts with humility,
for humility begets respect,
which in turn begets honor…
This path builds a trust that, at first is delicate, but becomes somewhat solid later on.
I say somewhat as once that trust is broken, it is like smashing a fine china tea cup: IF you can put it back together it will never look the same, feel the same, and it definitely won’t hold what it used to…
Trust has to be constantly earned, as does honor as well as respect — and to keep maintaining the command of this requires a constant exercise of humility.
Those that command honor do so by persuasion, never by manipulation.
This is the problem for those that demand respect as they have a hard time understanding all of this — like Obama, Hillary, and Holder.
They prefer the demanding route, which will get them some level of respect but hardly ever honors, at least not true and lasting honor.
And they will never have the trust that could have been gained if they had only learned how to command honor — but then again, it takes a certain character that has the discipline to build that trust, a character none of them seem to be interested in.
Which is the biggest reason why we really shouldn’t be interested in any of them either, save to keep our enemies closer than our friends.

Conspiracy Of Silence Is a documentary film detailing an alleged child sex scandal that involved many children from a Nebraska Institution, Boys Town, and Lawrence King - or Lawrence "Larry" King.

Reflections from Decisive Liberty
The following stance is stated in the final paragraph of the oration given for the unveiling of our Statue of Liberty on the 28th of October, 1886....
... there is room in America and brotherhood for all who will support our institutions and aid in our development; but those who come to disturb our peace and dethrone our laws are aliens and enemies forever.

We at Decisive Liberty are committed to this stance and welcome all - if you have not already - to join us in learning to live by this stance.There are only 2 nations that have placed God within their Constitution: one was created by God for the people He loves, the other created by the people who love Him.
