Obama’s Voters on Independence Day + Tuesday Humor

VIDEO: The Future of America (press play button below)

Awhile back, I coined the term “TV voter” in reference to the person whose sole or primary knowledge of political candidates’ positions is acquired via television viewing. In my opinion, the majority choosing to vote for Barack Obama are TV voters. Their source of knowledge? I don’t know; probably MSNBC.

All kidding aside, check out this unscientific survey conducted by Jesse Watters. On the Fourth of July he interviewed 27 people under the age of 40 — a whopping 55% of these individuals had, quoting Mr. Watters, “no clue about the founding of this country.” Remember, each one of these person’s vote is exactly equal to yours and mine and they love Obama!

Key words to watch for in these TV voters’ answers: “Bicentennial” — “Independence from whom?” — “Abraham Lincoln, our first president” — “What’s a ‘founding father’?” — “Samuel Adams” — “Freedom” — “1600” (the year Declaration of Independence was signed) - and many more! What is shocking and sad is these people are serious and they are sober.

The reason I put up this “survey” is because I strongly believe the main reason we have many young people who are so willing to give up personal liberty for the mirage of entitlement is because they know little to nothing about the sacrifices of the women and men that established this nation (and if I didn’t, you would not have believed me when restating their answers). Sadly, most know nothing about why this nation is special — why America is exceptional.

American Values: “In God We Trust” — “Liberty” — “E Pluribus Unum”

No Apology Song - The Case for American Greatness

A song about America’s greatness. Inspired by Mitt Romney’s book, No Apology. (Video with pictures now at bottom of post.)

A quick note: I do not know the identity of the person who wrote and/or performed this song.  I just stumbled upon it on YouTube today and thought you’d all enjoy it.  While the views in this video don’t necessarily reflect the views of Mitt Romney or us at MRC in every instance, we enjoyed it a lot and we welcome all of our readers to get creative and release anything that we can use to promote Mitt.

Here are the lyrics:

Way back in ’73, we had a tea party

and speedy Paul Revere said “The British are here.”

But ’round the world a shot was heard

We fought them off in Concord

The British took Boston, never knowin’ what it’d cost ’em

They fought they’d broken our will

but there were cannons on the hill…

So then in ’76 we said “goodbye” to the Brits

It took all of us to beat Cornwallis

Despite risk of retribution we signed the Constitution

and King George realized… that we would not…

We won’t apologize for what we symbolize

for letting freedom grow, for standing up and saying “no”

We won’t apologize for the Bill of Rights

for independence we will not apologize.

In the 19th Century we had a Great Awakening

and then President Monroe said: “Stay on your side of the globe!”

We brought in Texas — just as proud as the rest of us

We spread west to the Pacific, thought California was terrific

Yankees: “Slavery’s gotta end!”

Dixie: “Amendment Number 10!”

Then U.S. Grant and Robert E. Lee agreed on unity

We won’t apologize ‘cuz we can compromise

that we will stand and fight for what we think is right

We won’t apologize ‘cuz Lincoln ratified

and gave the slaves their rights

We don’t apologize.

The Industrial Revolution was the peak of our pollution

Cars and phones and planes and flight, vaccines and electric light

DuPont and JP Morgan, assembly lines and Henry Ford and

the allies need an ally ’till the Treaty of Versailles

The Great Depression was on from ’29 to ’41

Hitler was in power, it was Europe’s darkest hour

but after Pearl Harbor and our ability to labor

the giant awoke and we all took up the yoke

We don’t apologize for saving foreign lives

for defending our freedoms, our children and our wives

Did we isolate and cower? Or become a superpower?

No, we organized and we didn’t apologize.

Russia, Cuba, and China put their freedoms behind them

but Korea never fell past the 38th parallel

Should we have gone to Panama or Vietnam?

How could Reagan talk so tough to resilient Gorbachev?

Then the UN turned their back on the suffering in Iraq

How could we think to liberate with the world just yelling, “wait”?

Until September 11th 3,000 souls went up to heaven

and their lives we eulogize

And we will never, never…

We’ll never apologize.

Should we turn and flee from the cause of liberty?

Or cross the ocean and die so that others can be free?

Are we sorry we fight and die to answer freedom’s cry?

asking only a space to place…

our dead.

asking only a space to place…

our dead.

Should we apologize for saving foreign lives?

For standing against evil and not covering our eyes?

Should we hang head for the movement we led?

Or the truth that we said, or the hope that we spread?

There is no policy, no new hip philosophy

There is no prosperity, no new ideology

There is no kind of peace, no breadth of security

There is no community, no type of earthly beauty

There’s nothing like life when you are free

and for that we offer no apology.
