Trump's "Hard Power" Budget

Trump's "Hard Power" Budget
America's military is one of its most respected and cherished societal institutions, and military strength is widely considered of paramount importance toward maintaining America's identity in the world.

Do All Religions Follow the Same "God"?
It is a fairly popular idea among a certain strand of tolerant human being that all faiths are fundamentally equal, and that diverse religions share a unified conception of God. These individuals argue that all religions have the same underlying value system and that the superficial trappings can, and should, be looked past in order to see the fundamental oneness at the heart of them all. It is a convenient narrative for side-stepping bigotry and intolerance, and a it is a very nice option for people who want the sentimental support of spiritual belief but the lack the discipline to submit to any established doctrines.
