“To be prepared for war is one of the most effective means of preserving peace.”
-Gen. George Washington

Appeasement is not a viable foreign policy. As George Washington taught us over 200 years ago, nations act in their own self interest. Weakness can and will be exploited. Among the proper roles of government is protection from foreign threats. We can only have peace through strength.

Freedom is not free. It is paid for every day, not just by vigilant citizens, but by our brave men and women in uniform. They deserve our undying gratitude, support, and respect.

At The Steamboat Institute, we recognize the existence of threats and evil in the world. We believe that a resilient, proactive foreign policy is the best way for the government to ensure our personal Liberties.

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”
-Ronald Reagan

“As our enemies have found we can reason like men, so now let us show them we can fight like men also.”
-Thomas Jefferson

“Some people wonder all their lives if they’ve made a difference. The Marines don’t have that problem.”
-Ronald Reagan
