It’s good to be back home. July was a month spent on the road. June 30th I pulled out of North Carolina and headed west. I basically made a loop between here and Utah via I-70 and I-80, up to Rochester New York and then back down to home. I went through a lot of states and stopped to talk with a lot of good folks along the way. And I learned a few things.
FACT: AMERICA is AWESOME.
At none of the border crossings was I stopped and asked for papers or travel permits. I just got in my car, and drove. A lot. Freedom.
FACT: AMERICA’s Colors are Red White and Blue.
I was pleased to find that even in more “Liberal” areas, people are Patriotic and we love our Nation. I saw the American flag flying in every State. I saw it on the backs of trucks and cars. Proudly over businesses. And I even saw it inked as a few tattoos.
FACT: AMERICA has a pathetic Government.
Everywhere I went, Americans have a great love for our Nation, but none for our Government. Obama is just not popular at all anywhere I travelled… No where did I hear anything about Skin Color. It’s all about Policy and no one I talked to had anything good to say about it.
FACT: AMERICA is BEAUTIFUL. Even crossing Kansas and Nebraska – two states that normally cause me to flail simply due to the expanse of them… I have to say I found stunning beauty in them on this trip. Tennessee was breathtaking. Looking at the expanse of the Great Lakes. The absolute majesty of the Rocky Mountains. American is Gorgeous. PA really surprised me with it’s soft hills and wide fields… beautiful little towns. Western side of New York is even beautiful. The Niagara Falls would have been more so if it wasn’t so bloody commercialized. I’d have loved to have seen it 50 years ago.
Overall, America is one amazing Nation. And I truly love it. And I know I am not the only one, who would stand proudly in it’s defense. I only find it mournful that it’s our Government that we need to defend against. Bureaucrats with their Policies… CANCER! And not just on the Federal Level, but on the State and Local. We need to keep an eye on them.
