Born out of Man's Innate Need to Live Free and Pursue Happiness...The United States of America

Updated on February 19, 2018

Another passion of mine, is learning about and from History. It saddens me that so much is being forgotten or revised.

What is this place, we call America?

A place like no other, for you see, she was born out of Man's need to be Free; Free from Dictators, Free from Kings, Free from Emperors and Free from all men who seek to Rule over other men.

She was born out of Man's innate understanding that our Rights come from God and from God alone, not from Dictators, Kings, Emperors and Thank God...not from crazed Chairmen named Kim!

The Land of Milk and Honey

Early on, many referred to America, as The Land of Milk and Honey and were more than ready, they were eager, to risk everything to get here.

Many would leave their families and come ahead to see for themselves, if this place they'd heard such wonderful things about, really existed.

They anticipated finding work and earning a decent wage, preparing a home and eventually sending for their families, reuniting in a very special place.

There were so many unknowns and yet...They Came!

America's Founders knew that a vision was one thing, making it and more importantly, keeping it, a reality... was something else.

So over time and with many revisions, the Constitution was born... solely for the protection of us, the people...against dictators and kings and from all whom seek to rule over man.

A very important 1st Amendment not only guaranteed the people's Right to speak freely and to assemble freely, it prevented the establishment of a national church, which left the people with the assurance that they'd be free to worship in their own way, in their chosen Church, not one chosen for them.

They didn't stop short, they covered all the bases, dotted the I's and crossed all the T's.

It was an amazing feat!

America: Unique and Welcoming

While America was, as today, a very welcoming place; common sense was utilized, as it should always be! There was a screening process, (today, one might say, a vetting process) which took place for all that sought entry.

America from coast to coast, had to be protected:

  • Disease and sickness could not be allowed to just enter in...medical screenings were a required necessity. Screenings which, in some cases, would lead to detainment or worse. Some were turned away.
  • Criminals were not greeted with wide open doors and wide open arms. Unsavory characters couldn't just sashay on in. (although I suspect a few slipped in.....just sayin')
  • Millions arrived at our shores and were processed on through, via Ellis Island, and while most had no problem entering in, many were turned away for various reasons.

God Lit us up and made us To Shine!

Not all see America, as I see America, I understand that. Many have no thoughts about America, one way or the other, they're indifferent and unfortunately, Patriotism isn't contagious.

But, it doesn't end there.

Many have been brought up to dislike, distrust, condemn and hate, not just the Country, but groups of People in America, that think differently than they do, have a different mindset altogether and do not share in their view of how things are or of how things should be.

We are witnessing, almost on a daily basis, Free Speech being squelched....but, there is definite consistency, which cannot be denied.

It is the Speech of Libertarians and Conservatives consistently being suppressed and it is happening often, at multiple College Campuses.

While I know that America is not perfect, (I have many names and many nicknames and Pollyanna isn't one of them...thanks Mom) people are hankering to get in, not hankering to get out and while I am on this Subject, why is it that so many over the years, celebrities for instance, threaten time and time again to leave this horrendous place, but they never do?

I know that I speak for a Majority, when I say:

Life at times is hard for all of us and at times, all of us have to reach a little bit further and work a little bit harder. Keep that in the back of your mind, while keeping this at the forefront.....America is full of opportunity for All of Us, never doubt it!

For those constantly bashing the Trump supporter, the Conservative, the Libertarian....know this; we are all so busy with the day to day of making a living, paying the rent/mortgage, meeting the needs of our children, grandchildren, elderly parents, budgeting for gas and groceries, etc., we do not have the time or the wherewithal or the calesthenic capabilities to hold you or any other person back.

We are not looking around for someone that looks differently, worships differently, thinks differently, lives their life differently, so that, just for the heck of it, we can rain on their parade.

If we don't like a Speaker, a Musician, a Restaurant or a particular Movie....We just say No and we don't go, but if you are into that Speaker, Musician, Restaurant or Movie, knock yourself out.

Don't rain on my Parade, when I have no desire whatsoever, to rain on yours!

Maybe there isn't free flowing Milk and Honey, but I know of no other place like America, unique to all other Countries.

Our Founders left behind a Constitution and a Bill of Rights that instructs our Government; to never get too big for their britches, to never get beyond their raising and to never forget just who it is that they work for.

God lit us up and made us shine, let's stop with the tarnishing, let's not lose what's left of the luster.

God Bless America!
