Never Forget that America is Worth Fighting For!

America is a nation and an ideal, birthed by a group of visionaries who gave it the Constitution to nurture and protect it. What makes America, America the Beautiful, more than just a blessed land, is our legacy, the Constitution. Sadly, the Constitution also makes for America the Vulnerable by enshrining freedom that enables the malevolent to subvert and destroy America from within. You, the voter, are the guardian of the Constitution. Your vote determines the health and survival of America. America is defined by the last phrase of our national anthem: The land of the free and the home of the brave.

Freedom, in all its forms, is our greatest legacy, which this nation has bravely fought many wars on many fronts to preserve against the unceasing assaults of totalitarianism of all stripes. Time and again, the flowers of our nation bravely sacrificed their lives to protect freedom and liberty. In the not-too-distant past, we fought and defeated Nazism and Fascism in Europe and Imperialism in the Far East. Before the nation could have a respite, the flame of international communism raged, consumed many parts of the world in its fire, and posed a great threat of scorching our land. Yet, we did not waiver, did not appease, and did not surrender. We stood and fought the scourge of communism on multiple fronts, not knowing we would have to fight communism yet again, but this time inside the United States.

America is not perfect; no human enterprise is. Yet, America is the closest country to a true abode of peace in the broadest sense. And it is Americans, overwhelmingly “infidels,” who make America what it is. While America opens its doors to the poor, the hungry, and the oppressed of the world, Americans open their hearts to the less fortunate people of various lands by their unsurpassed generosity. No nation gives more aid to international charities, as a percentage of its gross domestic products, than the American people. It is sad to watch those people to whom we have opened our pockets now biting the hands that fed them.

The vast land of America was once inhabited by a relatively small number of indigenous people. These native ‘Indians’ had lived throughout the land for thousands of years and will always remain America’s true fathers. American Indians helped the Pilgrims survive the winter. Later, more European immigrants came, and American settlement finally outgrew the Indian fathers.

Then, on July 4, 1776, America declared independence from England, the old white grandfather across the sea. The miracle of America happened, and its dynamic birth rapidly changed the entire world.

America developed into thirteen colonies, then into the strong 50 united states it is today. In a very short time, America grew from a log cabin to the world’s largest and most technologically powerful economy. The United States is a nonpareil icon and the envy of the world.

In many surprising ways, America resembles the great, ancient Persian Empire. Like the Persians, who rarely regret the past, Americans always believe “the best days are ahead.” Like the ancient Persian Empire once was, the United States is now the greatest country in the world.

America has basically done the same. In a strange sense, America is a reincarnation of Persia, an extension of the Achaemenid Empire created by Cyrus the Great. No wonder the immigrant Persians (Iranian-Americans) hold the United States very close to their hearts and have blossomed here in their new home.

Unfortunately, tragedy reigns in the land of the old Persians. The remnants of the great Persian Empire were swallowed up by the Muslim terrorists storming out of Arabia. The tyrannical Islam eviscerated the spiritual life of tolerant old Persia. It has taken decades for the Persians (modern Iranians) to recover their spirit.

While America is experiencing all sorts of hardship at the moment, the American dream still looms large in the eyes of many people everywhere. We, the People, should join with heroes today and express our love for America.

America is far more than a country. It is a place of greatness. Now, more than ever, Americans must unite with all past and present heroes to preserve America and our FREEDOM.

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!
