Veterans Day, America, and Democrat Delusion

Last night I saw a special on PBS about Veterans Day. It made me proud to be an American. It reignited the patriotism I once had before being subjected to hearing constant attacks and smears against America these past few years. Everyone is so negative towards this country and I don't know why. Is it because they are jealous of our success? Is it because of our global influence? Is it because of our "evil" presence in Middle Eastern affairs?

It doesn't matter. I know this country and everything it stands for is great. I don't need the election of the first black--well semi-black, President to feel good about my country. I don't feel patriotic only when people that I agree with are in power. And why is it that the staunchest patriotism always comes from the right? Because conservatives believe in America. Conservatives realize the concepts of duty, honor, morality, and personal freedom. All concepts America was founded upon. That is why three quarters of our military view themselves as conservatives. That is why you never see an American flag next to a "Greenpeace" or "Bush Lied, People Died" bumper sticker, yet almost always you'll find one next to a yellow "Support the Troops" ribbon. That is why you will never see an American flag at a liberal themed anti-war protest, but you see hundreds of them at conservative rallies.

So while I watch this piece on PBS I see how grateful past generations of French and other European people were to our boys who fought so valiantly over there. The countless American cemeteries over there on foreign soil, and the citizens over there who pay their respects to these soldiers whom they don't even know, sometimes laying flowers on their tombstones, or simply visiting their graves and saying a prayer. It really reminded me why we are such a great nation.

Imagine a world without America. Imagine the utter despair our world would fall into. So many immigrants dreamed of a life in America, the same immigrants that passed through Ellis Island 100 years ago and the same ones that flock to our country today, legally and illegally. People yearn for America. They want to taste it. They can see that "shining city on a hill" as the great Ronald Reagan said, and they are drawn to it!

This country, and our fighting forces, sacrifice more for others than any other nation on earth. And while we have our faults, like every other nation, I will not give in to the constant pessimism from the left. Because conservatives know the core principles that make this country great, something liberals will never understand.

Thank a veteran today. Screw Obama. And God Bless America.
