@bapyou Progressives can’t understand patriotism…patriotism is a feeling of love so strong that you’d give your life for it…..progressives only give when they’ve convinced themselves they get more in return for their giving. Everybody else gives more and expects less in return…not progressives, not the entitlement “generation”, certainly not you.
Patriotism is almost non-existent in our youth today. Do you know why? I do? The history books account of why people came to America in the first place. Ask your youth (up to age 35) why America was settled? Was it by immigrants from England that were paid to settle America for England or was it for religious freedom and God being woven into the fabric of our Constitution?They have learned a totally different history of America than we did in the 1940s and 1950s.
Our youth don’t have a love for America like we old timers do and they don’t know why America is special. These are a few of the lies our children are told about why we have this problem:
- The liberal education has brainwashed children to believe America polluted our resources and strive to continue polluting the earth.
- School children are told that America is a war-monger and that it starts wars just for money, so the rich get richer and the poor get poorer or dead.
- Americans are greedy and arrogant, and America is nothing special. This attitude is why children have little patriotism in their bones.
- Most of our children have been taught an alternative story for the revolutionary war and civil war. They do not understand the contributions that have come before us from early settlers and negro heroes.
Please take the time to learn the true reason our early settlers came to America, their struggles, the obstacles they faced and overcame, and the positive contributions of America to bless the world and nations overcome by tyranny and hardships. All you need to do is put a search into your browser and find the good as well as the bad.
It’s a choice on what you put into your memory banks and the attitude you and your children develop.
Ask yourself why people living in foreign lands give up so much to come to America and make a better life for themselves? There must be something special about America or people would not risk their lives and that of their families to come here if they didn’t see what you don’t seem to recognize. Keep in mind that what our founding fathers established a long time ago stands out to nations around the world as a place to go for FREEDOM and OPPORTUNITIES. Without living outside of America, it can be difficult to believe that this concept is truly their way of thinking.
Many Americans have developed fond feelings for their country and memories that created a strong feeling of patriotism inside them. There is a reason why this is true and, if you don’t feel that way now, perhaps you should do some positive research to understand why this is so.
