Fighting In the Homeland
You and I ..and all the people historically a mighty force; a still small voice can be heard from the mountains, the prairies and the sea's..from the people who say "This is my country" Our strength and courage remain untamed. neutered and fierce our ideals are held in the highest esteem throughout the world from the beginning we laid them as our foundation. When I was a child I spoke as a child when our nation was young we were yearning as we have grown we've forgotten our roots yet they're still within our understanding. Deep in the valleys, where the grass roots grow lays also there the stone of our foundation wheather you stand on it, swear by it, or use it as your weapon it remains the cause of our condition. In the heart of America the people are watering tenderly planting with care patiently waiting for the harvest they expect when our soldiers come back from over there. We the people, on the homeland who wait and pray and worry and vote fight with the enemy's infiltration of the church and states' early foundation and the people shout this has always been my country! I won't move over to make room for your god you won't swear by mine This country has been led by the disciples of One Almighty God and on the principle that we, Americans are undivided, justified and made firm by the power of God. Don't shake the foundations of my country don't tread on me! This has always been my home you have never been my neighbor we have always been at odds and that is why I live in the land that has always been free.

Well crafted sentiments. May I asy that the US gained it's freedoms though through your civil wars especially North vs South...a terrible loss of humanity there...but here in Canada we had no such war within our borders and never killed the natives as Custer did to gain territory. We learned out lessons from our grandparents about freedom. Mine came from Russia and Germany where we were severly subjugated and turned that around once they reached our shores. But anyway, I did like your approach to freedom. May the bells ring.
