Hope Abounds

“Our country is in danger, but not to be despaired of…”
~Dr. Joseph Warren

Hope Abounds for America

Despite the threat, hope abounds for America. And, the best part for investors? We can be a part of that hope.

Our 15 years of research has unearthed many examples of good values in American corporations. Values like integrity, caring and courage. These companies are having a positive impact on our country. They are creating life-enhancing products and services, raising our quality of life, creating new jobs, building real wealth, improving their communities, and ultimately helping America shine as beacon of freedom for us and the world. Investors can partner with them, by owning their stock, to help build a better and brighter America.

My mother told me if I work hard and really believed in American principles and I believed in God, anything is possible.

~Ben Carson

The citizen is a better business man if he is a Christian gentleman, and, surely, business is not the less prosperous and successful if conducted on Christian principles.

~Grover Cleveland

Examples of American Values

Here are a few of many examples of good being done in American businesses. Some represent companies in which investors can invest. Our newsletter, eBook, and blog have more examples.

  • A company providing over 70 full-time chaplains for their employees
  • A company that provides free funerals for veterans and police officers
  • A company that puts a pro-life message on the back of its trucks
  • A large company that has a no-layoff policy during recessions
  • Some companies close on Sundays to honor their faith and give employees a break.

Freedom Still Strong

America remains one of the most free and therefore, one of the most desirable countries in the world. Based on an extensive poll it is still, by a wide margin, the country of choice for those who are considering leaving their own country. Freedom works here because most Americans believe in Peter Marshall’s concept of freedom. The long-time chaplain of the senate said, “May we think of freedom not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right.”

As with a growing child the more responsible we are with our freedom the more freedom we can have. So, the real excitement lies with the possibility of, not just defending freedom, but seeing it advance and grow.

Let every nation know … we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and success of liberty.”

~John F. Kennedy
