An Unapologetic American
If you are looking for another opinion piece which consists of various insults, in the ongoing mission to put down the United States of America, her President, her people and her place in this world.....you've come to the wrong place!
Not sure how you found this one, in the midst of all of the America-bashing which goes on from sea to shining sea and beyond.
If it was by mistake and you are looking for your daily fill, in all the wrong places, I am confident, you'll not have to look very hard or very far.
It is among the latest crazes and 'Google' can take you there, so let your fingers do the walking...
But...if you want to hear something different, for a change, then please, stick around!
With this, I am not seeking to sell my Country as the ideal, the perfect place with the most perfect people, but in comparison, it stacks up well, I'd put it up against all others, in a heartbeat!
When I was a little girl, growing up, going to school, I'd swell with pride, with each daily reciting of the pledge, with the meaning in the words of our National anthem and with the patriotic songs we’d sing.
To this day, I cannot pass by an American flag, without feeling those same childhood butterflies!
I cannot hear our Nation anthem without getting goosebumps!
This wasn't something unique to only me, it was the norm!
Patriotism was as common then, as America bashing is today....
- That bears repeating, Patriotism was as common then, as America bashing is today!
My teachers didn't attempt to sell America as the perfect utopia and they didn't attempt to sell her short either, by describing her as a place which did not deserve to exist.
They weren't selling or promoting anything, they were school teachers, they taught!
We'd study history, including our own, as it was; without fillers, without revisions, without holier-than-thou interpretations and misguided offerings.
Any talk of climate change, would be represented on the weather board in our classrooms.
We weren’t there to receive some type of down-with-people/anti-American indoctrination, we were there to learn and that we did!
By third grade, we were writing in cursive, we knew our times table chart like the back of our hand, had mastered long division and we were reading the great works of great Authors!
A love for reading was instilled in us at a very young age, which, by the way, remains with me to this day!
There was plenty of time in our day to start with an acknowledgement of the greatness of God and Country and to get in a lot of learning as well.
Ray Charles gets it!
A Political Party...transformed, right before our eyes
Not sure when we went from being a Country admired by most to trashed by so many!
What are the intentions of those shouting and demanding, that any and all be allowed access and entry into this Country that you would think...by their own words and actions, is a barbaric, shadowy, scary and racist place?
Don’t people normally or don't normal people typically...shout danger, do not enter, if they are truly afraid for the safety of others?
What must their motives be?
Maybe it has something to do with an unapologetic hater of America, our former President, given a stint in the White House, based on...what?
We can't be totally sure, but he, Barack Obama, with the rhetoric, with the apologies, with the insults, with his ever so precise placing of wedges, did proclaim loudly, in all of the major cities, for the "fundamental transformation of this country".
Does he see us as a barbaric, shadowy, scary, racist place too? One in need of a transformation?
But, (and this I find very interesting) we must not, ever, deny entry to any one, into such a place...for any reason!
I'd suggest he, Obama, did get his sought-for transformation; the transformation of a political party (the Democratic Party) as they've thrown out their version of tried and true for something brand new, via socialism, which all of the 2020 candidates are now embracing, in one way or another.
Another one of those aforementioned, "crazes."
For those Democrats, the least bit hesitant....
It doesn't matter what I was about to advise, because, personally, I don’t think they exist. If they do, they've already parted ways.
In the Democratic Party, there's no uniqueness, no one stands apart, they all glom on, so predictable, no matter how far they stray, they do it together!
Now, how's that’s for "scary?"
Making the case for all of that 'God's Country', which lies in between
All too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will to be rightful must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression.
Let us, then fellow citizens, unite with one heart and one mind. Let us restore to social intercourse that harmony and affection without which liberty and even life itself, are but dreary things.
"The Devil Went Down to Georgia, but he didn't stick around...this is God's Country"
A New Allegiance
We aren't to take pride...not in this Country...not any longer.
Patriotism isn't promoted, it is demoted, as antiquated and a part of the past.
For those that dare, it matters not, President of the United States, a law-abiding, proud American citizen, you are to be singled out and dealt with, made to feel small and insignificant and...silenced!
In the case of President Donald Trump, apparently, the sky's the limit in what will be done in order to stop him, from doing his job, protecting this great Republic of ours, whatever it takes!
The President's love for this Country, my love and adoration for my God/my Country is mocked, as if it is an unhealthy thing to honor either.
It will not stop...it cannot stop, so time to step aside and make way for those answering a different kind of call, the call to come on in, with the promise of giving a gift in return, their allegiance!
However, this allegiance will not be to a flag, representative of this great Republic, one Nation under God, wherein the power lies with the people, but rather, an allegiance to...(you've got it) the transformed political party!
A party which has embraced, a truly antiquated, form of government, Socialism; with the promise to be all things, to all people, with the expansion of Government, without limitation, unchecked!
I ask you, in this scenario, what happens to YOUR sacred rights?
"The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for, among old parchments, or musty records. They are written, as with a sun beam in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of Divinity itself; and can NEVER be erased or obscured by mortal
- Alexander Hamilton, 1775
A time for boldness...
If you stumbled in, accidently fell upon this particular article and made it this far, thank you!
But, I do not believe it was a mistake...the United States of America is not a mistake.
If you were born here or sought (are seeking) citizenship, congratulations, you've won the lottery!
The genius of our Founding Fathers sustains this great Republic, it is up to us, to "keep it".
We need to build on that solid foundation which was laid over 240 years ago, this constant chipping away at it does more harm than most will ever realize...but they will, when it is much, much too late.
Be bold, you have it in you, it's innate, it's a part of you, don't apologize for it!
Take a stand for America. It's not old-fashioned; it's forever in style, forever cool, forever worthy and definitely.....legit!
God Bless and Keep these United States of America.
a state in which supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives, and which has an elected or nominated president rather than a monarch.
"Sometimes it is said that man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then, be trusted with the government of others? Or have we found angels in the forms of kings, to govern him? Let history answer this question."
