As long as I can remember I have loved the U.S.A. I am proud to be an American. I have grown up respecting the flag, especially when the flag is passing by in a parade, my hand goes over my heart with pride. I also honor and respect our elected and public officials even if I didn’t vote for them.
Recently I feel a shift in how people are respecting our country. I think the American people’s love and honor for this country is in direct proportion to the way the President and congress love and respect the American people.
You can’t blame any political party. I love Thomas Jefferson who said a government that governs least governs best. We need to remove entitlements. When a nation grows up with several generations of people that have grown up with entitlements, receiving something for nothing this is when you will see an America that is respected less by her own people and other countries around the world.
One of our greatest blessings living in America is our freedom. I am so grateful for everyone who has helped keep us free in this wonderful country. Lets keep America great.
