Why do you love America?

My friend Susan (who is an amazing woman) wrote the following for a talk radio show who asked for reasons to love America. I wish I had written it. I couldn't agree with her more. Read it and think about the reasons you love America.

WHY I LOVE AMERICA

I love the Bill of Rights - which defines the limits on government. Free speech means you can criticize the government and there is nothing they can do about it, absolute privacy and religious freedom were unique when the Constitution was written and remain rare in the world even today.

I love the rule of law - that it applies to us all, no matter our station in life. It may seem that the rich and powerful are treated better in the system, but in America the rich and powerful can and do go to jail from time to time while the least powerful and the poor have the right to confront their accusers, the right to an attorney, the right to remain silent, the right to refuse admission to government officials wanting to enter their home or office.

I love Wal-Mart and capitalism (the greatest economic ism of all.) Wal-Mart started as a one man rural, somewhat rinky-dink operation in Arkansas and grew to be the biggest retailer in the world because serving the customer served the business. That is how capitalism works. Socialism and communism claim to spread the wealth, but only spread the inefficiency and misery. You don't even have to shop at Wal-Mart to benefit. Their massive competitive presence in the retail world lowers prices for everyone.

I love baseball...it is the perfect democratic sport. Anyone can play. Not in the big leagues but in the vacant lot down the street. You do not need to be big, strong, fast, smart, broad, tall, black, white, male, female, smart, rich to play. Anyone can play with minimal equipment.... Your individual excellence is just slightly more important then the group effort. Just like America...It is pure. Yes, ruined by money and fame and steroids. But at it's essence, it is pure and America.

I love that elections in America are contentious, messy, rancorous and maddening, but we vote without fear. And then a peaceful transfer of power takes place and nobody gets shot.

I love that America was one of the very first nations in the world to put an end to slavery. The story of slavery in America was no different than anywhere else except that we stopped a lot sooner. That needs to be mentioned whenever the topic comes up.

I love freedom of religion. I love my religion. I may not love yours or I may be indifferent to it. Doesn't matter. It is yours and you are free to practice it as long as it stays within the law regarding the rights of your fellow citizens. We don't really care for the sacrificing of virgins on a mountain top.

I love the upward mobility and self realization that is possible here. Poor men from towns with no traffic lights have grown up to become president. One day a woman will take the job and so will people of all ethnic backgrounds. Most millionaires did not start out wealthy. They make it on their own and they can do it because in America we have the opportunity to profit from our skills and effort.

I love how charitable Americans are. A recent report reconfirmed that Americans give more private money to charity than the citizens of any other country. We also give our time and expertise. When we give to disaster relief, as we did for Katrina, we know that some of it will be mismanaged, we give it anyway. A lot of it will help out, and that is what matters.

I love hot dogs and hamburgers and pancakes and popcorn and hushpuppies. American food.

I love that jazz, the blues, rock and roll, gospel and country music are all American, even though I don't know squat about jazz and very little about the blues. I do know that without them the rock and roll I love would not be what it is.

I love that America's voluntary military is voluntary and powerful. Most armies are neither.

I love that I can hop in my car and go where ever I want and no one cares.

I love all the memorials in DC. But the WWII has this big fountain in the center where groups of school kids laugh and play around the fountain - carefree and happy. Sitting on the benches, around the fountain you can see older men with their veteran hats on watching the children. The kids are so free because those men fought for them. It made me weep on the spot. I love that.

I love the regional differences we have...north, south, east, west, Midwest. While those differences are diminishing with technology, there is still a difference that you can really only know if you live in a place for a while. But yet, even in our differences we are still Americans. Different in so many ways, connected - a family.

I love that we are so free that we have the time and energy to invent things like iPods and iPhones and Viagra.

I love the flag. It is so simply beautiful to me. It is cheerful and optimistic. It is just cloth but such a hopeful piece of fabric.

I love that my daughter has so many options open to her. The sky is the limit and the world is her oyster. Her only limitations are ones she puts on herself.

I love that America takes care of the world. While we get little or no credit or thanks, often we get only criticism, we still do it. We are always there to help with all of our resources.

I love our history. The old fashion kind we learned in school before political correctness. I love all of those dead white men, who with all of their own prejudices and flaws, built a nation that affords freedom to men and women of all colors and creeds to a greater degree than, even they might have imagined.

Remember why YOU love America!!!!

Lorie Byrd:

Larkin,
Well, I guess I could say "You mean like Sandy Burglar and Bill Clinton who got off (excuse the pun in the case of Clinton) with slaps on the wrist," but I have enough sense to know that just because our system is not perfect (none is) that it is the best in the world.

Obviously some don't believe America is the best country in the world. It makes me wonder why the heck they are here. It also makes me wonder how much you have to hate America to pick apart a beautiful piece written by a lovely woman who loves her country and wanted to share some of the reasons why. Honestly, I don't think I want to know. I take heart though knowing that in America you have the freedom to hate and criticize and protest all you want. God bless this wonderful country.

I am not going to engage you in your gripe fest on this wonderful day though. I am going to bed so that I can get up and celebrate my country and my family in the southern sunshine. I hope your day is not nearly as gloomy as your comment was.

After reading something so uplifting and so close to the heart, we are immediately assaulted by Larkin's grim sneer and Brian's faux indignation.

I'm not going to let them ruin my day with such insincerities and negativity. James is right, you two. What is so hard about refraining from your consistant jaundice for just one thread.

One thing I love about America is that Brian and Larkin are free to be whiney little pisspots regardless of what the situation calls for and that I can freely tell them so.

But in all seriouness - I love America and all all her warts, for where else would we have such a free hand to work towards bettering *ourselves* and have it directly affect all those around us.

WildWillie:

No matter what the lefties say and have been saying, America is a wonderful country. Thousands upon thousands try to get into this country. Maybe the left should ask them why. They may learn what we know. Patriots are a constantly optimistic and positive bunch of people. Confident and strong. Determined in purpose. The desire to build up instead of tear down. That is a republican. No self loathing. NO consumation from hate. Lincoln freed the slaves, Teddy Roosevelt saved the parks, Reagan saved us from communism, GW saved us from the world of terroism. Great achievments and great men to remember this fine day. God bless America. ww

JFO, do you not see the irony in your statement, "Not a bit surprised though as dissent is a foreign concept to a wingnut." You recognize their right to dissent, but my right to an opinion of it is "irony" because it's July 4th? If I do it tomorrow, would the irony not be there? Because I can wait you know. Afterall, I'm a wingnut and the concept of dissent is foreign to me *on any day*.

Gotcha.

If I didn't voice my opinion of their behavior, I'd be silent, and that would be better for you?

Thousands upon thousands try to get into this country. Maybe the left should ask them why.

As Bill Bennett would pose this: If you want to take the measure of a country, throw open the gates and see which direction the people flow.

In America, we haven't actually opened the gates and they still flow in by the thousands.

Justrand:

JFO, one Party (hint, name ends in "RAT") wants to stifle free speech...in numerous ways.

The democRAT Party wants to have sweeping powers to declare pretty much any speech THEY don't like declared "Hate Speech".

The democRAT Party wants to institute a "Fairness Doctrine" that ONLY George Orwell (and them selves, of course) could love. This steaming pile of excrement would allow THEM to decide what is not "Fair" in an open marketplace. And then THEY would force "fairness" by forcing radio stations to broadcast THEIR views. They will naturally "find" all Left-leaning outlets to already BE "fair".

Actually, I am quite sure that just pointing out that their name ends in "RAT" would be considered "Hate Speech"...and I would be forced into a democRAT re-education camp! (though I'm sure it would be environmentally friendly! :) )

Ran:

The term "Dieing for your country" are only words to the JFO, Larkin ilk. I know this is true because if they truly understood that concept, they wouldn't corrupt this thread with their bile. One F**king thread to honor our soldiers was just another chance at slinging $hit. Damn shame.

It's interesting to observe that on the day we are celebrating our independence as a nation, Wizbang (a blog that is decidedly conservative in content) has posts titled: "231 Years Ago...", "Why do you love America?", and 'Independence Day". However, if you are to scan the posts over at Wizbang Blue (a blog that is decidedly liberal in content), the observer shall see posts such as: "Law Requires ^American* Flags", and "Torture in Kurdish Iraq".

Put away the flags
Put away the flags
By Howard Zinn
On this July 4, we would do well to renounce nationalism and all its symbols: its flags, its pledges of allegiance, its anthems, its insistence in song that God must single out America to be blessed.

Is not nationalism -- that devotion to a flag, an anthem, a boundary so fierce it engenders mass murder -- one of the great evils of our time, along with racism, along with religious hatred?

These ways of thinking -- cultivated, nurtured, indoctrinated from childhood on -- have been useful to those in power, and deadly for those out of power.

National spirit can be benign in a country that is small and lacking both in military power and a hunger for expansion (Switzerland, Norway, Costa Rica and many more). But in a nation like ours -- huge, possessing thousands of weapons of mass destruction -- what might have been harmless pride becomes an arrogant nationalism dangerous to others and to ourselves.

"... its insistence in song that God must single out America to be blessed."

That's a very disingenuous statement.

I don't think any of our songs say "God bless American only." Asking for a blessing on our country does not mean we want the rest of the world to go to pot. If other countries want God's blessing, they are free to ask for it and I'm sure God will give them just as much chance as America to receive it.

Our Founders were not perfect and they had many motivations and reasons for their stand on matters of their time.

However, they came together at that moment, at that place in our history, and risked it all for us.

We have among us those men today, but few are those who herald and praise them.

And if you want claim that the true French abolition date was 1848, here is a list of other countries that abolished slavery before the US, Mexico in 1829, the British in 1834, the Netherlands in 1861. Finally just to clear the make sure that you're clear on the US' place in abolition history, the last three countries to abolish slavery in the Americas were Puerto Rico, 1873, Cuba, 1880 and Brazil 1888.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abolitionism
Gradual abolition
The Society for the Relief of Free Negroes Unlawfully Held in Bondage was the first American abolition society, formed April 14, 1775, in Philadelphia, primarily by Quakers who had strong religious objections to slavery. The society ceased to operate during the Revolution and the British occupation of Philadelphia; it was reorganized in 1784, with Benjamin Franklin as its first president.[2] Benjamin Rush was another leader, as were many Quakers. John Woolman gave up most of his business in 1756 to devote himself to campaigning against slavery along with other Quakers.[3] The first article published in the United States advocating the emancipation of slaves and the abolition of slavery was written by Thomas Paine. Titled "African Slavery in America", it appeared on March 8, 1775 in the Postscript to the Pennsylvania Journal and Weekly Advertiser, more popularly known as The Pennsylvania Magazine, or American Museum.[4]


[edit] Northern states
The Abolitionist Movement set in motion actions in every State to abolish slavery. This succeeded in every northern state by 1804; although the emancipation was so gradual that there were still a dozen "permanent apprentices" in the 1860 census. The principal organized bodies to advocate this reform were the Society of Friends, the Pennsylvania Antislavery Society, and the New York Manumission Society. The latter was headed by powerful Federalist politicians, John Jay, Alexander Hamilton, and republican Aaron Burr. Thanks to the considerable efforts of the NYMS, New York abolished slavery (gradually) in 1799. In terms of numbers of slaves, this was the largest emancipation in American history (before 1863). New Jersey in 1804 was the last northern state to abolish slavery (again in gradual fashion). At the Constitutional Convention of 1787, however, agreement was reached that allowed the Federal government to abolish the international slave trade in 1808, which it did. By then all the states had passed individual laws abolishing or severely limiting the trade, all but Georgia by 1798.[5]

I have no problems with the concept of the US being benevolent, but it's always so far from the truth. I spent the better part of seven years studying Caribbean and Latin American history and almost without fail a number problems in those countries are as a result of US 'benevolence' but obviously if I bring that up I'm a left wing nutjob.

keifel agostini:

just for clarification, I don't hate America. I just dislike these revisionist historical statements. and if you want examples of the 'benefits' of US benevolence look no further than Cuba and Haiti.

Up until the early 20th century Haiti was self-governing and mostly ignored until someone decided the US government sent troops, ousted the elected government and replaced them with people sympathetic to their aims.

Cuba was a spoil of the Spanish-American war and America's playground until it became unmanageable and placed under Batista's care until the people revolted.

Cuba was a thriving country before Castro took over. Haiti is the same. Socialism is what killed Cuba and Castro. Any country under the tutelage of America has been doing great. Any country that fought against America and follow socialism/communism have been hell on earth. Cuba is a prime lesson of the evil of communism. Puerto Rico, a territory of America has been doing far better than Cuba.

keifel:

WildWillie, your implication is if you and I are neighbours and I don't like what you're doing to your house I have the right to come over and make my own improvements?

I never said the US is bad, I started commenting about the inaccuracy of the slavery statement and then responded to another statement about US benevolence. and what happened to open discourse and the exchage of ideas, are my ideas any less valueable or pointed because my politics are different from yours?

but back to my original point what about the best interest of the countries in question? haiti specifically is in the position that it's in now directly because of US actions during the Monroe administration. I'm contending from a historical perspective that the US' idea of benevolence have created some of the worst dictatorships on record. Castro didn't appear in a vacuum and neither did the Duvaliers.
