Be Thankful for America

Yes, Be Thankful for America. Even with all of our problems, growing tyranny, and societal decay, America is still one of the best, if not the best place to live on our planet. I know, I know, the American government is curbing our liberties, and are building a police state. As I have stated in my previous posts, we must fight the ruling political class, and reclaim the concept of America and what it means to be an American. We must reclaim the ideals of the American Revolution. I still believe all of that, but I am going to be a little more positive in this post. I am going to list some of the things that we should be thankful for being Americans. Here goes:

A lack of starvation among the populace
freedom to travel without restriction within the US
freedom to disappear and start a new life
The Internet and the ability to use it unrestricted
freedom to buy and read whatever books one wishes to
freedom to worship or not worship a god or gods
freedom to operate a motor vehicle
no standing army occupying our cities
mild poverty compared to the rest of the world ( since even our poorest have cars,TVs and
cell phones)
in some states, the freedom to own firearms
access to the best technology in the world
the freedom to speak out against the government
the right to own private property
the right to have an attorney when arrested
the right to a jury trial ( in most cases)
the right against self incrimination

Now this list is not all encompassing, and does not take away
from the fact that these rights are under attack daily. Even so,
we are much freer than any country in Africa, South America, Europe
Asia, or Australia. Many of those places are literal hell holes full of
disease, poverty, war, and tyrannical government. This list is just a little
reminder to us all that we need to fight for this great republic and
the classical liberal and radical ideals that brought it into being.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
