I just finished watching “Yankee Doodle Dandy,” with James Cagney as composer George M. Cohan. A wonderful movie and a superb actor. His dancing and his portrayal of Cohan were from his heart; I felt that Cagney himself was passionate about his country. I think all of us, with some exceptions, have that passion for America. There’s nothing like this country. Americans have love in their hearts for each other and for those in other countries, whether they are meeting for the first time during an emergency, or hearing about others’ suffering.
Americans welcome new arrivals to our country. We want them to be happy here. However, we want them to come in through the front door, not break our glass and sneak in through the back door.
Our current government officials don’t agree. Their own agendas come first. People from other countries, who make superhuman efforts to legally come into America, are confronted with terrible problems. They wait.
At our border in Arizona, hey, no problem – walk right in, climb right in. And the President of the United States fights against them – no, not illegal border jumpers – he fights against a Governor of the United States! And if many of these illegal aliens cause American citizens to live in fear for their lives or be murdered, this government and president say, “who cares?”
Ever see one of those movies where robbers force their way into a house and beat up the people who live there? The victims cry and say, “Why are you doing this to us?” It doesn’t matter “why.” All that matters is that the home invaders be STOPPED. Why they are criminals is their problem. Stopping them from hurting us is the only problem we have. Someone else can psychoanalyze them in prison.
Why people in our government and elsewhere want to hurt our country doesn’t matter. Stopping them from hurting our country is the key.
THE AMERICAN FLAG ISN’T JUST A PIECE OF FABRIC; OUR FLAG IS OUR COUNTRY. OUR COUNTRY MUST BE PROTECTED AND HONORED. IT DOESN’T WORK ANY OTHER WAY FOR THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
