You are an American, embrace it!

You are an American, embrace it! You have freedom here like no other country in the world. Yes, we are not perfect, but what country is? We are the most caring and giving nation in history despite our flaws. Love your country! Recognize that only in America do you have the freedom to be individuals, to protest anything you want and to choose your own path. If you disagree, then why are so many people still trying to get here anyway they can? It is time for the citizens of this great nation to work together to restore us to our former glory. Stop acting like petulant children, finding fault with each other and bickering like spoiled siblings. The media has everyone whipped into a frenzy about things that really don’t matter like gay marriage, confederate flags, a fake “war” on women and over exaggerated claims of serial police brutality. When I say they don’t matter I mean in the context of the real problems facing our country – unemployment, spiraling out of control debt, a crumbling infrastructure and unsecured borders. Social issues should and can be resolved at the state level. They are not the business of the federal government. I support individual rights and would not take away someone else’s because their beliefs don’t agree with mine unless they are harming someone. While these issue should not be ignored it is time to prioritize our agenda to ensure the survival of our nation as well as the liberties and freedom that have made us great. Be proud of your country, resolve to help restore our greatness and enjoy another 239 years of freedom for our children’s sake. As Ronald Reagan said, “If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth.” God Bless America and a happy 4th to you and yours!
