Don't Apologize for America

Most politicians these days seem to make a living from either lying or apologizing. They're either complaining about the other side or apologizing to their base that they have to capitulate to the other side in order to get things done. That's all well and good but one thing politicians should learn to not apologize for is the United States of America.

Contrary to what some believe, America is not the worst country in the world. We do not oppress half the world's population. In fact, the world is a better place because America has taken steps in the right direction. America has been a leader in the world for ending slavery on the blood of her own people. Can you name another country in the world that has done that? None comes to mind right? Now I know what you're thinking, "America may be great, but she's certainly not perfect." Well no one said anything about being perfect did they?

You may be thinking "well, America has made some mistakes." Yeah? So? So what? Do you think we need our leaders running around the world talking about the supposed mistakes America has made? We don't need that. We need our leaders to lead. And by lead I mean learn to view America as a great nation and a good nation because she is. What other nation in the world feeds the hungry, rescues orphans, is first on the ground in any emergency no matter where in the world? There is none.

Politicians need to get away from the constant tearing down of our great republic. They need to stand up for our country again and realize that they have a great responsibility given since they are entrusted with leading our country. Next time you hear a politician saying something like "America has made mistakes" or some other such drivel, mark their name down and remember to vote them out of office at the very next chance you get.
