“While the politician and cleric look the other way when the saw the man that was half dead, the Good Samaritan had compassion on him, bandage him and took him to the hospital.
“Who truly loves the nation, is it the priest that said a prayer walked past, or the politician that looked and walked past or the Samaritan that took the wounded to the hospital, paid some money and said treat him, on my return I will upset the bill.
“The nation requires those that can make the sacrifices to make it great, they are those whom Jesus spoke about, people that may not be of note but prepared to make the nation great again. Some are doctors, teachers, young graduates.
