This review is from: TOPGUN on Wall Street: Why the United States Military Should Run Corporate America (Hardcover)
When I read this book I was astounded. I was moved. I was surprised and at times I was furious. This book isn't only about Wall Street where Lt Commander Lay has a clear command and depth of knowledge and expertise in markets; it's really about the systematic abandoning of America's core belief system as a nation founded on principles of excellence and accountability. We didn't happen upon a revolution as a rag tag army, participants of that fight were undeniabily American to their core and couldnt resist their determination to fight for their America's survival. History rhymes. Centuries later, we stand facing the threat of losing our most PRECIOUS asset: our Nation. Our entrepreneurialism. Our Faith and our unwavering ability to choose to be aligned with a center of gravity that mandates that we strive forward with deliberation and passion to fruitfully produce; but we do so in accordance with Nature's laws. The laws of our conscience. Excellence is a choice America. Let's choose to right the ship and defend our most precious assets; our freedom, our joy and our ability to live free from the burdens of tyranny that other nations have fallen victim to. Let's Keep Her Free. It starts with accountability here. Now. No blind eye for "hope". Hope is not a strategy. DeLeveraging our lives by paying down our debt and using other means to do what we can to hold onto what we have. It may not sound great on paper but we'd better Plan how to individually free ourselves or we all sink - water seeks its lowest level. We'd better be clear on that Plan (By Debriefing ourselves and others) and then we will flawlessly execute our plans to get and stay free. Later, we can debrief and see how to make improvements in our systematic rebuilding of an almost defunct America. It starts with those basics - not with Hope (nor Hype). Thank you to the men and women and their families for fearlessly serving our Nation. It is our responsibility - each and every American - to commit ourselves personally to fight any way God morally chooses for you to keep this a Great Nation. The Republic for which we stand will also stand for US. We are in it together America. This is the time now to awaken and DEFEND HER. The time is upon us. We have mere months to choose which Nation will emerge. I will choose my own accountability first and choose our forefathers brilliantly designed system where we can not ever have a ruling class (government) versus the people if we act in alignment with our Constitution and not pretend that it's no longer relevant. It is more relevant now than ever before. Here, in America, we are not subject to Czars and Monarchs by our Constitution; our American DNA was designed to rule out haves and have nots. You are not caste with a lot in an American life. Upward mobility is fueled by accountability, determination and perserverance. Do not cast your Pearls before Swine America. Those Pearls are wise and precious. Save HER GLORY while we can. It is your responsibility and mine.
