What does it mean being an American

What is the definition of being an American?

Many unfortunately in the present day atmosphere have no idea what it means to be an American. A vast majority of those individuals either represent in some way what it was most of us tried to escape with the formation of this nation, and others are just criminal, but still clueless to the actual ideals put forward by the founders.
So many examples can be given to demonstrate what has gone wrong with this society it’s hard to imagine that least some can’t be recognized, but first, a few questions must be asked to clarify what it is we should all be striving for;

1, what is it we all seek and wish for? It is the opinion of this writer it is safety and security from outside influence and protection against any actions from within that would threaten that safety regardless of who that may be, whether it’s a foreign body or a domestic group. So it is written in the constitution that we all as Americans who we have voluntarily submitted to be bound by that constitution, that we should always confront any threats to the goal of security. Certainly there is a right to petition the government either in writing or peaceful acts of gathering by a number of citizens, but nowhere is it written to allow violent protest, and anyone who partakes in any violent act are criminal and should be dealt with as a criminals.
Which also causes me and should cause many others to examine certain remarks made by General Mattis and others like him, both in the present and the past, even though in their own mind they believe those statements are patriotic and well-founded, their patriotism is obviously misguided, wondering then how many others are misguided also who are charged with everyone’s safety.

Another example of either being misguided or misunderstood is individuals like Colin Kaeperneck who has dominated the news lately by kneeling for the national anthem and showing disrespect for our flag thinking that can solve an issue with any government action, when that flag and corresponding anthem does not represent any one person or a small group as in most other case, but in truth concerning the U S it represents everyone including himself, so by his actions he is dishonoring his own position and calling himself a fool. There are better ways to bring attention to any corruption voting is only one of those methods that would not paint everyone with the same brush.

2, Prosperity is another point to consider, who can guarantee prosperity with the kind of criminal acts being undertaken with present day occurrences, when personal property own by individuals who have nothing to do with any grievance that may be present, and in fact takes away from that very foundation of what’s being argued. Those that perpetrate such violence or destroying their own prosperity and a future that could guarantee their own comfort, unless there is a corrupt purpose behind there acts.

I ask, what is it you wish, is that you can feel safe and make the best out of your life? Then isn't treating everyone well and as equals the way to promote that!

Another Special Addition

Making a statement that is both short and sweat instead of long drawn out then the following points are valid!

It has been noted with the current violence being perpetrated by some and the call by a few to defund legitimate policing activities which was instituted by the masses in the first place, instead of creating anarchy by eliminating that protection which is available to all, then why not try stopping any criminal activity to start with that requires that police presence. Certainly without the need of having that presence then it would make for less of a chance of hiring any bad actors in that force to begin with, and supervisors could and should be more conscience of who's hired anyway if they truly are protecting everyone. That in itself would allow for the lessening of any police presence if that is the concern. The issue realy is more the lack of responsibility by some in the public arena that creates the issue at all, and those need to be held accountable.

Riots Without Reason

Sunday, May 31. 2020

Lately there has been rioting without apparent reason taking place in many communities, not to say there is no bases for any protest, there are, that is an American right, especially to aid in pointing out certain irregularities that exist and bad actions by some which seem to go unnoticed with using other methods, most assuredly however when rights have been trampled on.
.
However it has to be pointed out that many in other cultures around the world who look to this society for guidance watch and take notice of what examples can be gleaned from our system of handling certain matters. And violence and lawlessness is a poor example to set to influence many others that our system is best.
The term “Ugly American” can take on a true meaning for many in the world by what is projected by some individuals as representing the mass and entirety of the population of the U S, when in actually it may not be accurate, but onlookers can’t determine that realism as fact or not always, even though that sentiment is growing and the cause of that sentiment can be seen as having good reason to exist.
It further demonstrates either the complete ignorance or criminal intent of some, where that ignorance can be a product of a bad education by purposely failing to instruct in the proper subjects that outline responsibility correctly, or in a proper fashion when attempting that instruction anyway, noting there are some that are efficient and well-meaning at what they do but not all, and the reasons for any criminal activity? Can only be guest at, but probably from a liberal out look that some have allowing and prompting such activity to flourish. One example would be exempting of some from any financial liability by not taxing certain individuals so as to have any ownership in society so there is no concern over who has paid for that item, if they were then that would give pause to any destructive activity, besides being in step with the constitution provisions of having equal treatment for all. Another example is affirmative action where there isn’t any standard used in determining qualification of an individual for a certain positions, if there had been a standard of choosing the most competent then this and many others individuals filling a certain position would not of been selected to begin with.
The bottom line is the Construction calls for action to be taken not only to foreign threats but domestic threats as well and any violent up ridings of any kind is unacceptable and needs to be dealt with as criminal with criminal punishment. Any weakness to take such action is not only Un-American but criminal itself.
