It pains me to say so, but I agree. We need to be stronger in certain areas like we used to.And that yes comes down mainly to the President. As a proud Coast Guard veteran myself, I love my country and am as patriotic as the next fella, but as I have said on here before, those in charge leave a lot to be desired. USA needs to be considered a superpower, whether people care if they are or not.Lost in all of hair pulling and name calling. Putin took Crimea when Obama was POTUS, was quiet under Trump, invaded Ukraine under Biden. I think he does respect strength and didn't push his luck with Trump. World needs a strong America and right now it couldn't be weaker.
