“We don’t live in America, America lives in US!”


I want to share an email I got from Aussie Chic. I think it aptly describes America and Americans very well. I see it as a wake-up call to our enemies at home and abroad!! Please pass it around.

OPEN LETTER TO TERRORIST

Well, you hit the World Trade Center, but you missed
America. You hit the Pentagon, but you missed
America. You used helpless American bodies, to take
out other American bodies, but like a poor marksman,
you STILL missed America.
Why?
Because of something you guys will never understand.

America isn’t about a building or two, not about
financial centers, not about military centers.
America isn’t about a place, America isn’t even
about a bunch of bodies. America is about an IDEA.
An idea that you can go someplace where you can earn
as much as you can figure out how to, live for the
most part, like you envisioned living, and pursue
happiness.
(No guarantees that you’ll reach it, but you can
sure try!)

Go ahead and whine your terrorist whine, and chant
your terrorist litany
“If you cannot see my point, then feel my pain.”

This concept is alien to Americans.
We live in a country where we don’t have to see your
point. But you’re free to have one. We don’t have
to listen to your speech. But you’re free to say
one. Don’t know where you got the strange idea that
everyone has to agree with you. We don’t agree with
each other in this country, almost as a matter of
pride. We’re a collection of guys that don’t agree,
called States. We united our individual states to
protect ourselves from tyranny in the world.
Another idea, we made up on the spot. You CAN make
it up as you go, when it’s your country.

If you’re free enough.

Yeah, we’re fat, sloppy, easy-going goofs most of
the time. That’s an unfortunate image to project to
the world, but it comes of feeling free and easy
about the world you live in. It’s unfortunate too,
because people start to forget that when you attack
Americans, they tend to fight like a cornered
badger. The first we knew of the War of 1812, was
when England burned Washington D.C. to the ground.
Didn’t turn out like England thought it was going
to, and it’s not going to turn out like you think,
either. Sorry, but you’re not the first bully on
our shores, just the most recent.

No Marquis of Queensbury rules for Americans,
either. We were the FIRST and so far, only country
in the world to use nuclear weapons in anger.

Horrific idea, nowadays? News for you bucko, it was
back then too, but we used it anyway. Only had two
of them in the whole world and we used ’em both.
Grandpa Jones worked on the Manhattan Project. Told
me once, that right up until they threw the switch,
the physicists were still arguing over whether the
Uranium alone would fission, or whether it would
start a fissioning chain reaction that would eat
everything. But they threw the switch anyway,
because we had a War to win. Does that tell you
something about American Resolve?

So who just declared War on us? It would be nice to
point to some real estate, like the good old days.
Unfortunately, we’re probably at war with random
camps, in far-flung places. Who think they’re safe.
Just like the Barbary Pirates did, IIRC. Better
start sleeping with one eye open.

There’s a spirit that tends to take over people who
come to this country, looking for opportunity,
looking for liberty, looking for freedom. Even if
they misuse it. The Marielistas that Castro emptied
out of his prisons, were overjoyed to find out how
much freedom there was. First thing they did when
they hit our shores, was run out and buy guns. The
ones that didn’t end up dead, ended up in prisons.
It was a big pain in the ass then (especially in
south Florida), but you’re only the newest pain in
the ass, not the first.

You guys seem to be incapable of understanding that
we don’t live in America, America lives in US!
American Spirit is what it’s called.
And killing a few thousand of us, or a few million
of us, won’t change it.
Most of the time, it’s a pretty happy-go-lucky kind
of Spirit. Until we’re crossed in a cowardly
manner, then it becomes an entirely different kind
of Spirit.

Wait until you see what we do with that Spirit, this
time.

Sleep Tight, If You Can. We’re Coming.

I don’t know who wrote this, but I’d like to meet the person and shake his or her hand!!!
