Those Americans not standing up for America should be ashamed. Regardless of our faults you should be proud to live where you do, and to have the
things that you have. That being said believing in the IDEALS of America doesn't mean believing necessarily in the Government\Ruling Body. America
is unique in the fact that it was the FIRST to hold Ideas expressed in the Declaration of
.(For your reading pleasure)
. We were the first to have a document of this
sort! Others followed AFTER.
We were the first to have a body of law, that balanced the power of a CENTRAL government, with the sovereignty of individual states. Something that
places like Afghanistan, or ANY Middle Eastern Government still hasn't been able to achieve between middle eastern tribes for close to 3000 years!
Our Body was called the CONSTITUTION(More reading pleasure for those Ignorant)
Other nations found
this document so compelling they COPIED it. I guess imitation is the purest form of flattery.
Now, as if that isn't enough, lets take a look at Americas direct involvement in world affairs. World War I. America was the key military force that
helped decide the fate of Europe. Your welcome. (I'm not down playing other countries efforts, merely stating that America had a pivotal role in the
outcome due to resources, technology, etc)
World War II. America was the key military element that ALLOWED European countries, INCLUDING Britain to remain countries. Otherwise they would be
speaking German. Again your welcome.
Now, lets talk money. America and there citizens contribute more fiscally to others than ANY other country in the world.
(Here is a link to help you start
your research. Thank you google. )
Oh and who are the largest recipients of that foreign aid? Iraq, Afghanistan and China? well again. Your
welcome. Lets cut that aid and see how much the rest of the world hurts. Apparently there are already a lot of haters.
But before you comment on how terrible America is get your facts in order. I am not saying that we are perfect. And, just like a majority of any
population, we do have a lot of ignorant people. But give credit where credit is due. Chances are a good deal of the things that you are enjoying
right now got there starts due to America. Whether by it's people or because of its wealth.
One can love his country and not agree with his Government. We can not have Successes without failures.
I for one love My Country and the beliefs its founded upon. And so does most of the world with out knowing it.
SO from one countryman to the rest of the world, DENY IGNORANCE. Your welcome.
