Why American Pride Matters

National pride is a powerful tool for any society, for any government. It can push a country forward or hold it back. If America does not pride, the country itself cannot move forward. If we consistently hear from our leaders that American history is shameful, that what we’ve done is nothing more than filth, why would we be motivated to move that country forward?

Well, if a certain group didn’t want America to advance then they would need to force the American people into a state of self-hatred, they would need to make us believe that what we’ve done, the advances we’ve made are one of two things: they are either not honorable or not ours. This is exactly what Obama and his elk would have the American people believe. From the day he took the oath of office, he has been either apologizing or denying what we as Americans have done. He has said that it was a group of nations who took out the threat of the Soviet Union, which is crap! America and America alone forced the demise of that “evil empire.” Not a group of nations.

The American history is one filled with greatness and honor. We escaped a nation that would silence our freedom of religion, we not only escaped, but we managed to birth the most powerful nation this world has ever known. America developed medicines far beyond that of any other country. The American space program expanded our understanding of the universe; it also had its practical uses like the GPS. And that is just the beginning; we’ve ended countless wars and have given countless dollars towards those in need. America is the shining city on the hill, thousands flee their countr ies in search of a better life here and it’s not because of how despicable we are. It is because of our greatness. I think what America should be most proud of is the fact that we have given others the ability to fight tyranny for the hope of liberty.
