The English monarchy does not care about the people: America is a business investment and it will be treated as such. A similar sentiment from England 's perspective is expressed in "You 'll Be Back" when King George sings, "The price of
Johnson will serve as a Connecticut agent, to help put the colony’s title on a Native American land. While Johnson is at Britain, he will soon realize that Britain’s policy is mostly made up of American’s conditions. When the Patriots become wild up with their demands, Johnson knew that he couldn’t be part of the Patriots actions. Johnson agrees that the Patriots were correct about their actions but he have trouble from breaking up with his mother country. Johnson avoids associating with the Patriots by rejecting his election to the First Continental Congress and this move of Johnson will make the Patriots remove him from the militia command.
In Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s article, “Insulting Colin Kaepernick Says More About Our Patriotism”, the author argues that Colin Kaepernick’s choice to not stand with his teammates during the US national anthem was patriotic. Abdul-Jabbar first compares Kaepernick’s choice to Army Reserve 2nd Lt. Sam Kendricks’ decision to interrupt his pole vaulting attempt at the Rio Olympics and stand at attention when the US national anthem came on. He believes that Kaepernick and Kendricks should be praised because they both behaved in a patriotic way. Abdul-Jabbar reminds us that Kaepernick’s reason for not standing during the national anthem is due to ‘things that are going on that are unjust that people aren’t being held accountable for.
But he warned that this all stands on realizing “that our rights don’t come from man. They come from God Almighty.” Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, who witnessed the speech, said, “Senator Cruz seems to understand that the next generation of believers is looking for conviction — not a milquetoast version of the Gospel that requires nothing.”  For a university that is highly conservative, a man with the same mission as the Republican right is the ideal candidate for

It’s time to elevate this debate from divisive name-calling, from soundbites without solutions, and start discussing how can we make this country better for all of us with real conservative values put into place.” Perry closed his speech with another jab at Trump but this time taking his slogan of ‘Make America Great Again.’ “Let’s make America good again so it can be great again,” Perry said closing his remarks where he received a standing ovation from the
In the eighteenth century there was a mix of opposition of independence, and a hope that the new nation would become a home of freedom. Thomas Paine’s argument was that America needs to gain independence from England. Jonathan Boucher believed if God wanted America to be independent it would have happened. A few of the reasons Paine wrote Common Sense was a result of unnecessary wars, monarchical government, and the way Britain treated America.
“America was established not to create wealth but to realize a vision, to realize an ideal - to discover and maintain liberty among men“ (Woodrow Wilson). Liberty is the vision Thomas Jefferson wrote for in his famous document, “Declaration of Independence.” He, and many others, believed in the separation of the 13 colonies from England, separation from heavy taxes and a restricting government. The authors of the “Declaration of Independence” wrote with exceptional diction, trustworthy ethos,and righteous(?) tone to unify americans and declare separation from England. Jefferson instantly starts off his essay talking about the human right to “dissolve the political bands”, and to become equal to nature and laws of God.
Are we as unified as we thought? There is a famous pamphleteer, Thomas Paine, who wrote a book about our country and says that America is a cordial and just country where everyone lives in concord. Do we believe that this is true for this country? Paine would be wrong in saying that America lives in concord for the reason that their government continues to
In Barack Obama 's speech he reminds us that “alongside our famous individualism, there 's another ingredient in the American saga, a belief that we are connected as one people”. This piece of evidence suggests that we are independent, but we are also all one whole group. in Barack Obama’s Democratic National Convention speech of 2004 he claims that “we are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes, all of us defending the United States of America” Obama is saying that we as Americans all have one common purpose; to defend our country together. Finally, the American voice is characterized as diverse.
The actual definition of American is relating to, or characteristic of the United States or its inhabitants. Being proud of who you are and the place you live. Americans have defined themselves not by their racial, religious, and ethnic identity but by their common values and belief in individual freedom. An American says the Pledge of Allegiance and understands that voting is important to Democracy, individually Americans value freedom and are proud citizens, and the freedom of human right.
Though the Constitution mentions the separation of church and state, it doesn’t say the separation of God from the state. Our founding father clearly involved the Judeo-Christian principles to the foundation of our country by hiring Ministers for their prayer meetings, allowing bibles and teacher led prayer in schools, government buildings acknowledged God, etc. George Washington said, "While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian." The separation of church and state which is the freedom of religion stated in the Bill of rights was based on the biblical principle of treating others as you would want to be treated.

I was born on September 15th in 2001. I was born 4 days after one of the worst attacks in U.S. history. And in the days and months after my birth, the country was more patriotic than it had been in the past couple decades. Patriotism has intertwined itself with me since the day I was born, and every year, near my birthday I am reminded that there is something much larger than me, and that is this great country. I cannot wait to grow and see what I can do to further better my home country.
