President Biden – as Hurricane Ian slammed the Nation – was raising money for Democrats by saying “Americans are not proud of the Nation.” Wrong, Mr. President. Most love this nation. What they are not proud of – is you, your arrogant White House, unaccountable Justice Department, and out-of-touch Democrats in Congress, who daily make American lives miserable, overspending, cutting energy, pushing jarringly high prices and interest rates, devaluing citizenship, ignoring violent crime, and lying.
Other than that, Mr. President, we are all happy. No, this is not about the love of country. Republicans are outspoken when it comes to loving what makes this country great, whether you think wanting the nation to be great is extreme or not.
They love our history, work ethic, the sacrifice of military members, courage of police officers, risk-taking by entrepreneurs, the chance to get ahead, and the God-given American Dream. They love earned citizenship, naturalized Americans, legal immigration, free speech, right to worship, guarantee that they can live in their home secure from “unreasonable search and seizure,” or speak at school board meetings for their children – without being called terrorists.
They are against racism, against those who falsely accuse others of it, who promote dirty tricks like reverse racism, discouraging achievement, lowering standards, and the trope of racism-to-beat-racism, otherwise known as Critical Race Theory or CRT. Hate comes in many forms, and the only thing most hate is – hate.
Americans are actually quite proud of who they are, and want their kids properly educated about that, about America being founded on religious freedom, built on determination, hard work, and pioneering, unblinking defender of freedom for all the world – decisive force in two world wars.
They want our military centered on preparing for, deterring, and winning wars, not winning a social wokeness contest, not proving they are more sensitive than China’s war machine, not more effete, pampered, quiet, genteel, or gentle. That is not what war is about. Or what deterring war is about.
They are proud of those who volunteer, for service in all ways – in the military, law enforcement, and fire departments. emergency rescue, EMTs, food banks, Salvation Army, programs run by churches, synagogues, mosques,
They are proud of teachers who know their stuff, teach truth not trash, high math, right science, real history, and strong languages by the book, who live for kids, not unions, rise early, work late, have full hearts, and will not be intimidated by the federal government into turning truth into politics.
They are proud of kids who work hard from an early age, learn to respect themselves, their future, their elders, and the nation’s institutions, place in world history, and power founded on right not raw might, our goodness leading to greatness, nothing less.
We are proud not of perfection, but of correction. We are proud not of the process – this thing called representative democracy – which so took the world by storm about 250 years ago, that all humanity now realizes there is something called sovereignty lodged in The People, rights that God gave and no government can rightly take from the individual, preserved by elections we have a right to trust.
Mr. President, let us get this clear. Americans love America, are proud of who we really are, and know that the future is bright if their faith in what made us great is respected. What they are not proud of is you, and those who disrespect half the country, more than half, with threats and the chilling of speech, calling law-abiding voters, protestors, and citizens a “threat to democracy,” “enemies of the state,” and “extreme” because they do not like what you are doing to this great nation.
Patriots are proud of their nation, and no citizens have more reason to be proud of their country than We Americans, on the left, right and center, young and old, male and female, rich, middle income, and poor, of every national origin, skin color, education level, laborer and professional, carpenter, plumber, code writer, lawyer, nurse, doctor, scientist, educator, and dream make.
We do not need to be lectured, re-programmed, talked down to, told to abandon core American freedoms, taxed more, regulated more, or charged more – for things we do not want and cannot afford.
What we need is more responsible, respectful, hardworking, un-shirking advocates of the People, less spending, less debt, lower inflation, and interest rates, fewer mandate and dictates, real limits on government, and leaders who have the decency, dignity, and desire not to question our pride. That is about it. We get that, we are happy.
