The United States is the most unique country in history. There has never been a country like this and probably never will be. A country created by a group of pilgrims who simply wanted the freedom to practice Christianity. I am not going to get on a religious soapbox. I am simply stating a historical fact .
We ran from a controlling government to be free. The pilgrims created a document that clarified the principles that this new country would be founded on. We now know the document as the constitution which is what we molded this country with. The founding fathers of our country, true patriots constructed a whole new government based upon the constitution and three branches government to ensure that we could never be controlled by government again. There was a lot of hard work and blood shed to perverse this country but it was worth it to all. We were a proud nation! I am not trying to stand on a patriotic soapbox either. This is just the unique history of our country which was founded as unique as our country is.
I have only started this narrative the way I did for a reason that will soon be clear. We have a unique country that is so good and so special. The reason why this country is so special is because of the above mentioned facts. We were the youngest nation but became the best and mightiest. A country so good everyone wanted to be us so how did we get so great? The country ran on and stood for something, a set of principles, a way of life. A pursuit of freedom and happiness which maybe different for each individual but we could pursuit these things. The only requirement was do not impede on others, respect others freedoms and the country. We as a country have made some mistakes but in looking at us compared to other countries this US citizen thinks we are still great.
We are heading in a downward spiral in our economy, the global economy, global influence and global strength. We are on the break of economic ruin both globally and here in the US, terrorism is on the rise and a cold war is upon us. How could this happen to such a great nation? It comes down to going away from 200 years of practiced principles and laws. I have to say I am a patriot, republican and Christian but I am not declaring this to state a position, nor did I start the narrative of this blog to make a statement. I started this blog’s narrative to make a historical note of the principles and beliefs that our fore fathers, soldiers and countrymen stood on. I am what I am because of principles and beliefs. I make mistakes and may not always do what I should but I still stand on principles just as our forefathers did.
We may not all agree on the principles and laws that this country was founded on but if these principles, laws and type of government where not applied we would not of had such a special country. I like all to think our country in this way and the principles it stands on even if you do not always agree. I did not agree how we handled Vietnam but burn flags and SIP on the soldiers? This country has made mistakes but without good principles we would not have this country today.
I am a Christian but it does not mean I will impose my Christian principles on atheist. The principles of this country say that I can be a Christian and a patriot and an atheist should be able to be an atheist as well as me a Christian. The principles of our country are being attacked by our government, by liberals who disagree with others, illegal aliens who have no respect for our country’s principles and other who believe their religion is above the principles and laws of our country.
Their is disrespect for soldiers and the flag that represents the our country. A country whose only requirements is to become a citizen and respect the principles and laws of the country. In Australia can not even buy a house unless who were born there. We elected president with a questionable birth certificate. We are giving up our principles, changing our laws and ignoring the constitution. The very document in which we lay our principles and laws on. If a person’s principles are different, religion is different then our country’s then it’s ok as long as you respect the principles and laws of our country. There needs to be respect of principles and laws of our country. Their are such acts of disrespect that are extreme and we turn a blind eye when something needs to be done. We have extreme Muslims having parades showing hangings and killings. Why are we just giving up principles and respect for our country? The answer is we the people of the United Of America our letting others run our country instead of running on the principles and laws that made this country special.
