Does America Remain an Eagle, or Has She Turned into a Turkey?

The Bald Eagle is the national symbol of the United States. It was chosen by the Second Continental Congress on June 20, 1782. The Bald Eagle can be seen on official documents, currency, flags, public buildings, and other government-related items. It is used by both the military and government agencies. The Bald Eagle is a good symbol for the United States because Bald Eagles are our eagles and are unique to North America. Besides, Bald Eagles are majestic birds as well as bold and faithful. They are a perfect symbol for strength and determination. 

I found the following information on Facebook from Frank Facts. As I read the six facts about eagles and the leadership principles that we can learn from them, I could not help making a comparison to the current government of the United States. Here are the facts, and you can make your own comparison.

Six Leadership Principles that We Can Learn from Eagles

1. Eagles fly alone and at high altitudes. They do not fly with sparrows, ravens, and other small birds.

Meaning: Stay away from narrow-minded people, those that bring you down. Eagles fly with Eagles. Keep good company.

2. Eagles have accurate vision. They have the ability to focus on something as far as 5km away. No matter the obstacles, the eagle will not move his focus from the prey until he grabs it.

Meaning: Have a vision and remain focused no matter what the obstacles are, and you will succeed.

3. Eagles do not eat dead things. They feed only on fresh prey.

Meaning: Do not rely on your past success. Keep looking for new frontiers to conquer. Leave your past where it belongs – in the past.

4. Eagles love the storm. When clouds gather, the eagle gets excited. The eagle uses the storm’s wind to lift itself higher. Once it finds the wind of the storm, the eagle uses the raging storm to lift itself above the clouds. This gives the eagle an opportunity to glide and rest its wings. In the meantime, all the other birds hide in the branches and leaves of the tree.

Meaning: Face your challenges head on, knowing that these will make you emerge stronger and better than you were. We can use the storms of life to rise to greater heights. Achievers are not afraid to rise to greater heights. Achievers are not afraid of challenges. Rather, they relish them and use them profitably.

5. Eagles prepare for training: They remove the feathers and soft grass in the nest, so that the young ones get uncomfortable in preparation for flying and eventually fly when it becomes unbearable to stay in the nest.

Meaning: Leave your comfort zone because there is no growth there.

6. When the eagle grows old, his feathers become weak. They cannot take him as fast and as high as they should. This makes him weak and could make him die. So he retires to a place far away in the mountains. While there, he plucks out the weak feathers on his body and breaks his beak and claws against the rocks until he is completely bare - very bloody and painful process. Then he stays in this hiding place until he has grown new feathers, new beak, and new claws. Then he comes out flying higher than before.

Meaning: We occasionally need to shed old habits, no matter how difficult. Things that burden us or add no value to our lives should be let go.

The American Eagle has been weakened by the Biden administration. Our adversaries are plotting our demise. They are working to change the world currency from the dollar, which will further weaken America. Inflation continues to go higher, making buying groceries and other necessities more difficult for many families. Immigrants from more than 150 nations are crossing into our country with no one stopping them or knowing who they are or where they are going.

The American Eagle should cast off the weak feathers (the Biden administration) and weak beak and claws (military) and elect a powerful President who will rebuild the military and face down our adversaries.
