Stand and Be Counted

I am a white American. My family history goes back to the American Revolution on one side and Early 20th Century immigration on the other.

I am tired of being blamed for slavery. I would help anyone without regard for their race,or sexual orientation. I love my country and our people.

I am one of many who refuses to be intimidated by accusations of racism and bias. I listen to Fox News ,as well as ,CNN and MSNBC. No one is 100% right or wrong but we are trying to make our nation live up to its promises of freedom and liberty.

I do not think the way to the future is big government who cares for those who will not try. All great ideas have their short comings. Welfare,social security and even FEMA are used and abused.

I do not believe our forefathers intended us to fight with each other or to accuse any citizens of unpatriotic behavior.

I do know that I am tired of supporting the lazy and their offspring.

Ashamed of those who believe we are an evil nation.

Proud of all who speak their mind without name calling.

I have been accused of being naive more than once but I believe in the American people and their votes will be counted in 2012.

    I’m with you… except I’m a Native and white American. They accuse me of being naive too… but hope is a beautiful thing, isn’t it?
