The United States is a rich land full of wealthy people and a mighty military. And we are taught from a very young age that it is, in fact, the greatest country on earth. If you don’t agree that we are better than everyone else, then you hate America and everything we stand for.
What is it about this country that supposedly makes it superior to other countries in this world? And why is it if you dare to question its superiority you are branded an enemy who obviously hates it?
After giving a lot of thought to these questions, I have come to the conclusion that our military power—our ability to kill off our enemies swiftly and brutally—is what makes us the greatest country on earth. You don’t want to mess with the US because we will come kick your ass!
You would have to be pretty stupid to question our intentions on anything. I mean, come on, our military and country were blessed by God himself! Irving Berlin said so…so it has to be true. I think that we are even mentioned in the Bible. The prophets had visions about this paradise called America, and they were upset that fate dealt them some pretty crappy cards by forcing them to live in an era that predates practically all modern conveniences.
We are a free country, people. And we are free because a selfless soldier went and died for our freedom in places like Iraq and Vietnam….
Except…now that I think about it, brothers and sisters, our “freedom” wasn’t really being threatened by either place…was it?
Oh well. If we had let those rogues continue to do things without our consent, God knows what would have happened. It all worked out in the end.
Except…the vets from Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan are oftentimes driven crazy by war and turned into alcoholics and drug addicts with no job and no home. That’s nice compensation for someone who fought in a rich man’s war, isn’t it?
Is this the sort of thing that makes us the greatest country on earth, people? Is it?
And if you question the government who puts these young kids in harm’s way, you are an Anti-American? Is that right?
It’s a backwards way of thinking if you ask me!
