This decisive battle in the Korean War, uh, it was important because, as you know, General MacArthur had told the Koreans, hey buddy, you had better draw back behind the 54th parallel line demarcating the, you know, the demilitarized zone between North Korea and our democratic allies in South Korea, or, you know, you’re gonna get it. So, on the morning of September, ah, in September, we fought a tough and decisive battle to protect our freedom from those who would do us harm, and that peace that we created stands to this day, in America.
So, you know, there was a time in our history, like today, that Washington didn’t really march to the same tune as that of the states, like Kansas, that make up our Federal Republican system of government, ah, and there were a lot of fights over Washington fat cats sticking their noses where they weren’t wanted, and finally Kansas had enough of it and said, hey, Mister, you go back to your fancy offices and let us govern by the consent of our, you know, the just consent of the governed, like it says in our Constitution!
In 1967, at the height of the fervor, uh, against, you know, the involvement of our brave fighting men in the Vietnam, ah, war, you know, there was a lot of fussin’ and fightin’ over that war and at Kent State in Kent, Ohio, a group of students started dukin’ it out with some of the Army guys there, and a bunch of them got shot, which is really unfortunate. Now, it’s important to remember that, as Americans, we have to, you know, defend each other, yes, but also, of course, defend our right, as protected in the Constitution of this great country, America, to keep and bear arms that, you know, we were fighting to protect overseas in Vietnam and elsewhere.
When General George Washington crossed the Potomac River on his canoe with his band of brothers, it was a truly special moment in the history of our America because, uh, he, like many others of his time, had, under the oppressive regime of the British, lacked the freedom of movement and assembly guaranteed to us by our Constitutional rights. So, ah, you know, he was really standing up for the inalienable rights to free movement and travel that we enjoy today in this beautiful country of ours, America.
The landing of our brave astronauts on the Moon in the warm summer of 1963 was one of those heartwarming moments that, uh, you know, really touches me as an American and as a patriot because, you know, it proves to me, as an American, that, ah, it really is possible for us to do anything, like Mike Armstrong, that, in the world, or on the moon, we set our minds to. And you know, that’s really inspiring.
It was near the end of the Civil War, uh, that destructive and bloody conflict that pitted brother against brother, and, you know, it’s important to remember that if General Grant hadn’t surrendered that day, that we would be a very different country, this beautiful land of America of ours, than we are now, and, you know, uh, President Lincoln was a Republican, and that he always put his country first.
Well, on that dark day in the history of our great nation, the stocks took a great big tumble and the President took the reins, and told us that, uh, you know, that it was time to tighten the belt and make some hard sacrifices and cut the spending. And it worked, so it’s hard for me, uh, personally, to think about, you know, the results of years of job-killing over-regulation from Government fat cats and Washington insiders, and how the depressions could have been, you know, averted.
I think the lamestream media pays way too much attention to this so-called Summer of Love, uh, you know, and it’s disrespectful to our brave Veterans who were off fighting for our freedoms in Vietnam and elsewhere, uh, while all these, you know, kids were sitting around on their rear ends smoking marijuana and listening to their music. If these guys had their way, you know, I think we’d all be speaking German right now, if it weren’t for the Greatest Generation and the freedoms they fought to protect in the wars.
This was back in, uh, the 1980’s, and President Reagan, that great leader, was leading our America against the Soviet Russians, and we played real hard and we beat them in the Olympics, at hockey, which I know a little bit about! So these incredible athletes took to the ice and told the Russians, hey, fellas, this is our country, you go home. To Russia, and they did, and we won the game. 1-0. And that’s really what America is all about, protecting our freedoms in every arena against people who would tell us we can’t enjoy our freedom.
Well, you know, this great and beautiful land of ours, this America we call home, it wasn’t always as big and wide open. When President Jackson told the French, look, hey, this is our land, and it’s our, you know manifest destiny, he called it, to live long and prosper over this great and wonderful land. And that’s America, isn’t it?
