The famous singing group known as the Dixie Chicks, have gone on the record as being against Patriotism in America.
Lead singer, Natalie Maines recently said, “The entire country may disagree with me, but I don’t understand the necessity for patriotism. Why do you have to be patriotic? About what? This is our land? Why? You can like where you live and like your life, but as for loving the whole country…I don’t see why people care about patriotism.”
What the Dixie Chicks don’t understand is the freedom which has allowed them to become so famous and highly paid comes from living in America. It is that freedom which allows the Dixie Chicks to make their statements about Patriotism in America. That idea alone should make them feel patriotic toward America.
Don Swarthout, President of Christians Reviving America’s Values said, “America is still the best nation in the world. America has best economy, the best living conditions and Americans give away more money to help other nations than anyone else in the world. That is why I feel so patriotic about America.”
Alex de Tocqueville in the 1830’s said, “America is great because America is good and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”
Swarthout said, “America is great because she was founded upon the principles of Christianity. The principles for our three branches of government, tax exempt status for churches and good government are all written about in the Bible,”
“In fact, the God of the Holy Scriptures is the God of freedom. He gives each one of us a moral freewill so we can all make our own decisions. That makes Him the God of Freedom,” Swarthout added.
Swarthout concluded by saying, “Any other kind of thinking is simply a product of the times and is proof that we are not educating our children like we used to about the true history of our nation. These unpatriotic statements make me want to start teaching Americans about the good in America and to be patriotic again.”
If the Dixie Chicks don’t like America then perhaps they should move to a nation that doesn’t provide the opportunity to become famous and make a lot of money. Then the Dixie Chicks could live out the rest of their lives in a world where they would never have the opportunity to become so well known, allowed to be so outspoken…or rich.
