Fourth of July Not For Citizens of the World

Countless numbers of Americans have died to secure and many will continue to die to guarantee the freedoms enjoyed by Americans. No matter the political persuasion, certainly all Americans can agree on the preceding sentence. But, some Americans don’t honor the sacrifices of other Americans.

If you are an American who calls yourself a “citizen of the world,” your allegiance is not to the United States. You are an American only by virtue of citizenship and not by values.

Your ingratitude is not appreciated nor needed here.
