We are not a nation of peaceniks no matter how many pinch faced liberals claim that we are. We are a nation born of revolution. We are boiled down from the genetic stock of the misfits of Europe; the people who would not bow down or submit and risk fortune, life and family to be free.
Americans always have been, and hopefully always will be, different from Europeans. Instead of submission to religious or royal tyranny our ancestors chose harsh and dangerous freedom. When that tyranny reached across the ocean we chose revolution, a dangerous and deadly gambit.
Yes, that is who we are. We are still the same people that gave you the Boston tea party and the whiskey rebellion. It is not in our nature to submit to tyranny whether imposed by King George or George Washington. The genes may have been watered down some over time, but they still remain in many of us.God willing...!
