It means understanding how this country was founded. The ideas, principles, philosophies, thoughts and experiences that made it possible for America to advance faster and achieve more than any other nation on the planet in recorded human history.


I'm not an expert on the founding fathers of the US but what I have read about them suggests that they did want to protect America from the problems they saw in Europe at the time. Most of what they said reads well and seems to make pretty good sense. I guess they'd be turning in their graves at what America has become today?


In just over 200 years, we did more than most nations that had been here for thousands prior.


Really. Like what?


It means recognizing when the government has overstepped its boundaries and how to push back against tyranny.


With all due respect, if people haven't recognised this already that's a worry. The government has been serving the interests of the wealthy, over the common man, for a long time.


As an American, the Founders wanted this, and expected it in order for our great Republic to withstand the mix of cultures that our laws and freedoms would tolerate, far beyond the rest of the world. America was designed to accept people of all nations


How did that approach work out for the Natives?

To quote one of my favourite TV shows; Words are wind!

A lot of Americans appear to have plenty of wind.

I wish people had that same passion for the world as a whole, instead of their country. The world would most prob be a better place!
The US has been the most generous country in the entire world. We’ve done our part. Our taxes have gone to the UN for decades. I’ve had enough bleeding heart liberal guilt tripping for a lifetime. It is the signature of Internationalists with no loyalty to any country, and they make money off it. So please, wnough is enough. Trump is trying to make it fair to us now for a change. The international bank Ayers have made off like bandits on our dime.
But yah you are a great cheerleader for the New World Order.

You do not get it do you? You say they have been generous, but also your government led to the deaths of millions of innocent men, women and children. They had blood on their hands with countries like Iraq, Libya and Yemen.

But my own country was involved in that too, so this is not an anti American rant. Patrioism for your country let's these sociopaths get away with what they do, time and time again!

i
Don’t know wth you are talking about. Millions of deaths ? “They” meaning the taxpayers or the crooked Congress ? Where did the US kill
Millions of people? Are you sure you aren’t thinking of Germany and Russia, where communism was responsible for the death and starvation of many millions. Wall Street Journal says communism killed 100 million.
I know the US is the largest contributor to the UN. What does the UN do with the money? Vaccinations, subsidies for people on third world countries to
Limit their family size to one, food aid, so on and so forth. Oh how about aid to foreign countries where there have been typhoons and other disasters, how about taking in refugees, military aid and so on.
You said we should be more concerned with the rest of the world, yet the world takes advantage and Trump finally said no pay your fair share. Now suddenly all the socialists don’t wanna pay their fair share, they want more from American taxpayers. I’m here to tell you Trump is right and it’s time for the socialists to pay their own fair share. The other thing is that the Deep State does things on our name and makes us pay for it, and Trump is trying to change that. So now the Deep State is impeaching our President.
Yes I’m a Patriot snd that’s just too bad for you.

I said led to the deaths. Maybe you should look at the how many people have died since the Iraq and libya invasion, and the helping hand the west is giving in Yemen.

You are completly missing my point! I am not saying your government or thst government is the worst. I am saying they all bad, and your comments tell me that your patrioism has taken over, which is a shame

Clinton gave our technology away to the Chinese. For that he should have been impeached. Instead it was lying under oath about a stupid blue dress. If he had been impeached and removed for his real treasonous acts, it would have been so much better.

No you are the one who doesn’t understand. I am
A Patriot because I love my country, not because I love the leaders. You said that we should care more about other countries. I eschew that because we do care about other countries and do more than pretty much everyone and the world took advantage. I explained about the Intl Bankers and money changers. They have no loyalty and this will do terrible things. I agreed with you that our leaders do terrible things in our name but I don’t have to engage in anti Americanism just because a bunch of socialists think we need to do more.

No, you still do mot get it! Tribal love always turns to tribal war. How doing governments get away with what they do? Because they say they are doing it for the live of the country, to keep them safe. Why do we see little uproar when governments do terrible things? Because we have been conditioned and brainwashed not too!

The only reason you love your country, is Because you were brought up to love and die for your country. Be it from your parents or from school.

You
Have NO IDEA about me or my motivations except what I’ve told you. I said nothing about howwas brought up, but my father was in the 82nd aireborne and jumped out of an airplane to save people in the concentration camps in Germany so I’ll thank you not to judge my upbringing. I also have a Revolutionary Patriot in my ancestry so I’ll thank you to shut up about my tribe. Furthermore, I have no sympathy for those who are traitors to my country or to any other sovereign nation. It is the communists and the Globalists and followers of George Soros and the Open Borders crowd who have sold you the bill of goods of Internationalism and collectivist ideology. And I’m here to tell you without a doubt that it is a completely destructive ideology. It is these people who have pushed forward with invading other countries because they see the others as NOT Sovereign.

Oh dear! You still do not understand what I am saying. Soldiers who die in war, be it your country or another. Do you think the people who sends them to war give a sh$t about them? Do you think they give a sh#t about their family? Do you think they give a sh#t if they die? No they do not! All they care about is control and power. People will blindly go into to war for their country, justified or not! Why? Because they are told to. They are told they are doing it for the people of their country, to keep their country safe! It's all BS!

Yes you can say wars like ww1 and ww2 were justified, but how many pointless wars and invasions happen because it benafits the powers that control this world.

How do they get away with it? Like I said, they condition and brainwash people from a young age to die for their country. That their country is all thst matters. Hence the reason we see horrors, and people do nothing about it. They say jump, we say how high!

Do you think these sociopaths would get away with it if they did not condition people from birth with blind patrioism? Of course not!

Do Americans have some sort of insecurity issue?

They keep going on about their foundation. You don't here that from any ATS members from other countries and how their country began.

Weird.



The problem we are having is certain evil people are trying to re write the FF intent of what this gov is to be doing as somehow vile and venomous instead of freeing the people for their own interests and happiness. The prog's attack this country and our founding fathers ideals even though it is in fact has been proven a major factor in liberating the masses from the rule of the Tyrannical Kingdoms of the Earth in many more nations than the USA. Essentially there are people that are all over the world including withing the US gov working for the old Kingdoms if I may over simplify the explanation for this discussion.

I think the main problem, that is so obvious to Non USA people, is the brainwashing that has occurred for you people to claim how good your "founding fathers", and how much better your lovely country is that anywhere else.

The fact remains, that White People from England and the UK, Invaded the Northern continent, and claimed it as there own, even though it was well established that there were people, already living quite happily there.

I dont think I have read anywhere, that the Native peoples there at the time, wrote a letter to the King of England, and ask him to invade their lands.....

To all the people that are in "America" now, it is shere dumb luck that you people are there in your lovely USA.

Just imagine if your first fleet, not the occasional white whaler or viking that had already visited, but you first fleet of "Pilgrims", were actually met at the shore/beach whatever, by a volley of arrows, then a full on attack by the locals, and all completely slaughtered, with any surviving women and children taken as squaws.

Just imagine if the local peoples didnt feel sorry for the stupid white fella, who were starving living in his wood huts, and they introduced them to turkeys and corn.

Just imagine if the locals knew of all the diseases and filth that the white fella had brought with them from Europe, to infect all the local people, and slowly kill them off with their no resistance.

Fortunately for you all, the natives allowed you to stay, presumably hoping you would go back to where you came from eventually, but no, they felt sorry for you all, and helped you.......big mistake on their part.

Of course we wont go on about their free labour with the poor black Africans, or that there was a vote in the early years, as to whether the "American" nation language would be English or German!!.

Not, not really too much to thank the "Founding Fathers" for.....

Except maybe common V8 cars.

Bill Cooper defending communists is about as good as it gets on what it means to be an American:



I have, shamefully, very little knowledge of this Icon Bill Cooper. I am impressed by what I hear from him and his perspective on Freedom. I like his observation on how the owners who bought the company that produces the press are the ones with the right to decide what they print and we are FREE to print our own. "Quit bitching they don't owe you anything. Start your on press. Do something.... "

That looks like an 80s era video. I was buried in study in school then and I recall having heard his name. I think I probably didn't listen too closely to someone that other people thought was a kook and I may have been wrong about that. Looks like I missed out on being exposed to some real facts I now believe on my own accord. Cooper as he sounds correct when he describes the future if we don't do something about it then, 30 years or more I guess.

Gort, you honestly don't have a clue and the ones posting here have tried to help you but you insist.

We are about the same thing as we always have been. The same Freedom For All concept we keep repeating we are about. Do you insist that you do not want to know that or what?
FREEDOM FOR ALL, that is our deal. Get over yourself. Your freedom is allowed too btw.

I do believe they are saying that you saying/believing that doesn't actually make it so.

And, they offered a couple of examples that contradict your claim.
