Time for all Americans to be Americans
What does it mean to you to be an American? Perhaps that is a very broad question and no doubt there are as many answers as there are citizens of this great country.
And speaking of our great country, let’s suggest a few things that have formed the foundation of this greatness. First of all, we began as one nation under God. Yes the phrase is actually still in our Pledge of Allegiance. Secondly, there is the Constitution of the United States developed by our founding fathers and empowered into being by the States. And thirdly, the frameworks of a unique government like none other before it that provides checks and balances to assure that the citizen class is never ignored in order to carry out the will of the people.
With the above foundations in place, guess what happens next? This country grows faster and stronger and freer than any other before it. And in just over 200 years we have been
transformed from small colonies of people to the greatest nation in the world. So what has happened? Why does it seem we are in meltdown?
Now if you are like me, you probably have lived all your life in this country characterized as one of the most affluent, industrious, militarily strong and free nations on all the earth. Has anything happened in these United States that you would consider threatening to any of those characteristics? Yes perhaps it is a baited question. But stop and consider how long it has taken for the majority of the populace to “wake up” and see that the threat is indeed very real and the times are dire for a return to what made this country great. read more »
