I am fearful that our beloved United States of America is going to follow a path (despite the rules laid down by our founders) that defies to protect us from the fate of Saudi Arabia, China and Russia. All of those places have no tolerance for intellectual freedom much less freedom of religion or freedom to love.
I love America with all my heart… her amber waves of grain are being destroyed by pipelines. Her purple mountain majesty is being blown to bits by coal magnates.
Her beautiful spacious skies will again be choked with soot and fear. Her brotherhood of good From sea to shining sea will have to hide and whisper in corners and alleys.
Confirm thy soul in self-control, Thy liberty in law. Self-control is likened to weakness and liberty to peril.
I weep, and seek the comfort of the like minded. I cling to to the lovers of clean food and thought, pristine water and mind, clear air and soul. Greed is the enemy of all those things.
America please see what is happening. Please embrace what our founders saw and tried to keep for everyone after them. O beautiful for patriot dream that sees beyond the years
O beautiful for patriot dream that sees beyond the years I repeat –> O beautiful for patriot dream that sees beyond the years. Take that in.
Till selfish gain no longer stain, the banner of the free!
