Why I Am Proud To Be An American

As I was listening to John McCain stumble through answering a question about having pride in America, it occurred to me that he really needed help. Mrs. Obama wasn’t proud of America until her husband became a leading presidential candidate. Mr. McCain said it was tough sometimes? I don’t think I have heard Mr. Obama even answer the question, although something tells me that without a teleprompter he wouldn’t have a good answer either. I feel it is necessary to help them all out.

  1. The United States of America is the most prosperous nation in the world because of the hard work and ingenuity of the American people.
  2. The United States of America is the worlds only superpower because we have so many heroes who voluntarily put their lives on the line for the rest of us.
  3. The United States of America is the most generous nation in the world because the American people are the most compassionate and loving people in the world.
  4. The United States of America is the most free of all of the nations because our Founding Fathers created a government that even the most corrupt people can only harm, not permanently destroy.

The President of the United States should not hesitate or qualify his answer to the question of why he is proud of America. It is embarrassing that Presidential candidates this year are not unabashedly proud of America.
