I don't care what political party you are affiliated with, nor for that matter what you see as the future of this country. Right now we are seen as
a weak, bullying, on the verge of economic collapse, and a prime target, by many other countries on this planet. I have many issues with the current
administration, the previous administration, and the government as a whole. I have had these issues for a long, long time. The main thing to remember
is our Government is not truly a representation of our county, we are. We, the ones that question. The ones that always look for ways and try to
express ways to make our county better. Those of us who believe in Freedom, freedom of speach, freedom of thought, and the freedom to defend
ouselves. These are the gifts that our forefathers gave us. Our founders foresaw the attacks on a truly free country from outside and within, and
did their damndest, to make sure we had the tools to deal with both when they occured. Our founders had the brass ba%%s, to leave their home
countries and come to a place where they could actually promote freedom for themselves and their families. And then they fought to the death to make
those dreams a reality.
No, the history of our country is not perfect, but it was based on the idealism of freedom.
This fourth, do not wave the flag for your government, wave it for yourself, your neighbors, and for all those who are still able to write in
to ATS. Wave the flag for freedom! Play music, good and loud that supports America as a whole. Buy extra fireworks this year. Go all out to show
the rest of the world "No I, don't necessarily support my government, but we are the true rulers of our country! We are the free, we are the brave,
We are AMERICA, AND DAMN PROUD!!!!!!!!!
