I am an American

I am a meer citizen of this Country, and I am a Constitutional Conservative who is a part of a Giant.

I proudly stand, place my hand over my heart and recite the Pledge of Allegiance to our Country's flag every at every opportunity because I earnestly believe in the Republic for which it stands. Added, I recite this pledge to honor the sacrifice of so many whose beliefs and actions have guaranteed my rights as an American.

Because I am an American, I support the Office of President of the United States regardless of the political affiliation of the elected individual; however, this does not mean I support, condone, or encourage their personalities, decisions, and beliefs on policy.

I support Congress and the laws that govern our Country; however, I do not believe that Government should dictate every aspect of a person's life.

I believe that Government has gotten too big, and I think that the rights of the People are sovereign over our institutions.

I support our Military and Law Enforcement Agencies because they ensure the Freedoms I have to live my life the way I see fit.

I believe in your individual rights towards pursuing whatever brings you happiness in this life as long as your endeavors do not infringe on my rights guaranteed by our Constitution in my pursuit.

I support and encourage you to worship the one you call God and seek that path that offers your soul salvation. I support this until your worship spreads doctrines of Hate and condemns my freedom to worship my savior, Jesus Christ.

I support your right to raise your family without government interference regarding health, education, socialization, and all other constitutionally guaranteed rights so long as love and the wellbeing of your family is the doctrine of your household.

I support your right to save every dollar you earn or spend every dollar as long as you obey the law and "render unto Ceaser that which is Ceasers" to ensure our Country thrives.

I support your right to affiliate with any political party and its policies. However, we can agree to disagree on some issues and understand that it is not your place to take anything that is rightfully mine and give it to someone who will not support themselves.

Moreover, I believe in you being you, me being me, and peace and harmony prevailing among all. If everyone practiced Faith, Hope, and Charity, our Country would once again be Great. However, In all ages, there are examples of a few who demand too much from the many, and never does this end peacefully with the practice of those Godly virtues.

We are quickly reaching a point in our Country where it is becoming acceptable to condemn someone else's faith and beliefs rather than practicing your own, to spread doctrines of Hate rather than offering words of Hope and Love, and to demand respect rather than give it.

As I have previously stated, I will support your Constitutional Rights as long as you support mine. The majority of society believes the same way, and most of us simply want to spend each day doing something productive, finding a reason to smile, remembering our past good and bad times, practicing our faith, and most importantly, holding on to everything we love. These are the essential things in life, but we are all finding it hard to pursue because of the constant turmoil created by the group I call "Hate." Hate loves to see misery, Hate wants to see suffering, Hate intends to take what is yours and give it to someone who won't earn their own, Hate believes by making you fail, they will succeed, Hate wants to dictate every aspect of your life and take away your freedom, and Hate is the truest believer in discrimination.

In the beginning, I told you I was a part of the Giant, the sleeping Giant, which is the collective of average God-fearing Citizens of this Country who live each day trying to better themselves in some way, and Hate is standing in our way.

Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, who planned the attack on Pearl Harbor, reportedly wrote in his diary, "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve." Hate- this is to serve as your warning that Love conquers all! Be an American; put our Country and ALL of our Citizens first with every decision you make. Stop infringing on my rights and help move us forward, rather than taking us backward.

I encourage each of you to support your local Churches, attend your local School functions, go to your City and County government meetings, support your law enforcement officers, thank a Veteran, visit with your neighbors, give to those in need, and remember to Respect all of God's creation. Simply put, remember the precepts of our Founding Fathers and "Be An American."
