We are all inspired to sacrifice our spare time because of a shared love for a place and time that has left us with so many fond memories. We believe that we are the luckiest humans to have existed on this earth because of the freedom and high standard of life our humble, middle class parents allowed us to experience. Community respect was willingly given regardless of family status. Hard work was rewarded with community support and the ability to create unique, happy memories with loved ones. We don’t believe in the history of humankind you can find working, middle class families who can boast such successes. And the single, most significant idea that bound our communities together was the assurance that our neighbors would protect our way of life only because our neighbors knew that we would protect their way of life, a mutual agreement.
We are very aware that we were provided many opportunities by being born American. A fact that many of our fellow neighbors take for granted today. We fear that many have become spoiled and do not realize what travesty they are bringing by arguing that we should become like the rest of the world. We have not seen another place or culture that would have given us the chances we were lucky enough to have handed to us in America. Only in America can two people share a drink together and never know if one or the other is a part of the 1% or has to punch in six days a week. If you are truly convinced that America is so evil, I suggest you spend some time in another culture working. Going on vacation and living the high life doesn’t constitute experience living abroad. Work at the same level you do in America abroad and take notice of your opportunities before you condemn the American way of life. And remember, not everything that is taking place today represents the true American way of life. Research before you cast stones.
It is our love of the American philosophy, which has been manipulated, forgotten, and vandalized, that compels us to devote time to the discussions on this website. America’s original philosophy appears to be thrown to the waste side because people have become too lazy to invest interest in success that was handed to them. People have learned to point the finger and blame somebody else when things don’t go the way they want. We see a place that has given us so much becoming hostile and divided for the wrong reasons. We see people willingly encouraging each other to take America to a place and idea our ancestors left behind several hundred years ago. Do you seriously think that money grows on trees and will always be there regardless of the decisions we make and how we behave? Look around you and decide for yourself if things are as nice as you remember. When I look around I see very little opportunity for those who work hard. And the key to America is the success of the middle class, not the handful of people who get lucky and become the 1%.
America is at a pivotal point in its history. Foreign attitude has always fluctuated between envious and hateful towards the US, but it is at an all-time low. This common theme across the world is mainly because people don’t respect our leaders anymore. But what worries me most is the number of people living in America who also show despise toward values and self-government that are dear to the American way of life. The number of people infiltrating our system only to exploit it for their own purposes with no appreciation for the livelihood of the system has become unbearable. It is impossible to deny that community moral and efficiency are steadily decreasing. Do not look to statistics to answer this question, look around you and form your own thought about what is happening to your community, State, and Country. Many men and women of all color and ethnicity have sacrificed their lives to protect the philosophies of our founding documents.
Is it too much to ask that we spend a few nights after work discussing these ideas and the current state of our great nation? Now is a defining moment in the story of the great governmental experiment called the UNITED States of America. You can become involved in peaceful, revolutionary ideas that take us back to our greatness. You have the power to return the Country to the same opportunity that our grandfathers willingly donated to us. One day you will be able to tell your grandchildren stories about how you brought the freest Country in the history of mankind back for their sake. And the difference is that now we can all do it together regardless of ethnicity, gender, social status, or beliefs, which was the true purpose of America.
