Comments are left here often by liberals...as recently as this morning...suggesting that conservatives are no longer proud of our country, and that they, liberal Democrats, can finally be proud of America now that Obama is in office.
I felt the need to write about it here, because I see this as one of the fundamental differences between liberals and conservatives. We all heard the now infamous comment by then wife of the Democrat Presidential nominee, now first lady Michelle Obama: "for the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback." I find it incredibly pathetic that one would base her pride in her country on whether or not a Democrat or Republican is in the White House.
So, just for the record: because we have a socialist in the White House doesn't mean I, a conservative Republican, am no longer proud of my country. Embarrassed by the lack of leadership we now have in the White House? Yes. Sorry that we now appear weak to the entire world? Yes. Proud to have been born in the greatest country on earth? You bet I am! No matter WHO occupies 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, I am still in awe of this great nation and all that she stands for. My pride in my country is not based on a "single snapshot in history", but rather on her nearly 233 years of rich and amazing history. I could list for you countless reasons as to why I am PROUD to be an American...the list is endless...but I'd like to hear from you, the reader! Why are YOU proud to be an American? Click on the comment icon below and share with us why it is that you are thankful, and PROUD, to have the great privilege of being an American.
**By the way, if you're a liberal, and you plan to leave the usual snarky comments, which I am already getting, know that your comments will be posted in their rightful place, at this location, and not under this post.
