I think I should explain why my blog is called “live your life like an American”. Mainly the “American” part. By “American”, I don’t necessarily mean the people who live in America right now. Geographical location isn’t totally void, but it is only a small factor in my mind.
Our country was founded on the basic principles of freedom–freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom to bear arms, etc. It’s all in the Constitution. Strong, historical figures such as George Washington and Paul Revere are remembered for what they did for this country, not for their money or kindness.
The fact is, there was a time when most every man, woman, or child was prepared to make great sacrifices for independence. Remember the minute-men? So many of them were slain in fights, and yet they were still determined and ready to fight in a minute.
I have very little faith that more than a few thousand Americans(if that) would be willing to lose everything for their independence. Indeed, it is exceedingly easier to lay back and let the government take care of everything. Be good, pay your taxes, and have your favorite celebrity politicians. But some of us do not want that.
I can not honestly say that I would sacrifice everything for America as it is today. Back then, yes, in a heart beat. But today, nuh-uh. I mean, come on. Planned Parenthood?
I think there is the possibility of another civil war; a revolution that would change everything. Or not. But if there is, be sure you know what side your on.
May the odds be ever in your favor,
