Howard Buffett's Easter Advice To Obama

By, Chris Rossini

Obama has given his Easter & Passover remarks...Here's a snippet (my emphasis):
As Christians, my family and I remember the incredible sacrifice Jesus made for each and every one of us – how He took on the sins of the world and extended the gift of salvation. And we recommit ourselves to following His example here on Earth...
Ok, well, I think Obama would do well to ponder some advice given in 1952 by a man named Howard Buffett:
“Even if it were desirable, America is not strong enough to police the world by military force. If that attempt is made, the blessings of liberty will be replaced by coercion and tyranny at home. Our Christian ideals cannot be exported to other lands by dollars and guns. Persuasion and example are the methods taught by the Carpenter of Nazareth, and if we believe in Christianity we should try to advance our ideals by his methods. We cannot practice might and force abroad and retain freedom at home. We cannot talk world cooperation and practice power politics.”
Obama, you know Howard's son quite well.

Give him a call and ask about his Pop.

Also, if you really want to follow through on your remarks, you'll have to stop earning headlines like this:

...that produce results like this:

Making that choice would be an important step in "following His example here on Earth."
