Few posts have offended like the homeschooling post, but a close second would be a post I did on patriotism. The title of the post was "Patriotism and Butt Hurt Liberals". Of course there were those who took offense to the claim that they were "unpatriotic" because they disagreed with the President etc. etc. etc. I tried to drive home that it has nothing to do with supporting the President or not. The discussion was a good and lively one and the Republican convention stirred up a lot of the same claims I made in that original post. I loved seeing many older Americans standing and cheering for John McCain. They are the salt of our nation. They are the citizens who really understand the word sacrifice and are willing to do what is asked of them by their country. Not the current faction of disgruntled Obama youth supporters. They wear flag pins, wave flags and tear up when they hear the national anthem. They are the ones John McCain was referring to when he said "My country saved me, I didn't save my country"! That was an amazing moment for John and a moment when I realized the youth of America that are so firmly in the Obama camp, who in the words of Barack Obama, just "don't get it". John McCain whether you agree with him on everything or not, loves his country and there is no question about his patriotism. Through the good times and the bad times he puts his country first. Looking at the flaws of our past and the current issues facing our nation does not have to be accompanied by an innate call of what is wrong with America. There is a lot that is wrong with our country, but there is so much more that is right. He stated that he fell in love with his country when he was in Hanoi. Why is it some choose to find constant fault rather than do as McCain says and start changing what is wrong. Why look to the government to change all that needs changing when in America you can act instead of belly-ache. Feel free to get involved. A call to action is what I heard in his great speech last night. A cause greater than self. The democrats are busy calling the convention "negative" and "bitter" and full of "attacks"...this is coming from a candidate who is focused on pursuing possible criminal charges of President Bush as soon as he sits in the Oval office. This is the deranged, bitter, attack-type politics that Americans are tired of. This is the same extremist group who cries in the fetal position because the crowd at the republican convention is chanting USA! USA! USA!...they find this offensive. I find these extremist Obama worshippers offensive. I much prefer USA! USA! USA! to OBAMA! OBAMA! OBAMA! This is the group that wants Bush in jail and do nothing Senator logos to take over other American symbols. This is the same crowd. This is the crowd that hates America and loves a person. Yes I am calling out the left and saying you are NOT patriots. How can you be when you trash our symbols with your freaking candidates big fat mug.
Last night was a display of patriotic older Americans and I loved it! Hooray for older American voters who love America and aren't afraid to say it. BOOO to the youth who trash America and love a candidate over country. I do think Obama and his camp are not patriots. They are green with revenge and hatred for our President who in my stupid idiotic opinion is a man who has kept us safe and has made the tough decisions. I love how some have already been knighted and have been responsible for nothing. Obama saying he "voted" against the war in Iraq is such a big fat lie! He was in the Illinois State Legislature when the vote was cast, and Biden voted FOR the invasion! I am glad that Obama did a proxy vote from his reclining chair in his front room, but an opinion with no moral accountability is NOT GOOD JUDGEMENT!
So I am making a claim that the crowd last night dominates on patriotism. Obama supporters will be offended and will boil up with rage right after they state that wearing a plastic flag pin made in China doesn't mean anything. And then I will say yes it does. It means you "GET IT". John McCain "gets it". John's big moment was at the end when he said
"Fight for what’s right for our country. Fight for the ideals and character of a free people. Fight for our children’s future. Fight for justice and opportunity for all. Stand up to defend our country from its enemies. Stand up for each other; for beautiful, blessed, bountiful America. Stand up, stand up, stand up and fight. Nothing is inevitable here. We’re Americans, and we never give up. We never quit. We never hide from history. We make history. Thank you, and God Bless you."Let the liberal whining begin.
