I had tears in my eyes and chills down my spine yesterday as I watched Virginia State troopers hailing the bikers as they rode toward D.C. Then I lost it when I saw that Marine standing in the middle of the street, saluting the bikers as they passed his position.
Main Street America is yearning for a return of our traditional values, the values that made us special, no matter how many times Obama tells Muslims that we are not any more special than any other nation.
Americans are longing for America to come back home; for our corporations to cease fleeing to more tax favorable locales and bring those jobs back home. We want our brave military men and women to come home from the Middle East and protect our own borders and harbors. We want an "American President" and not someone who goes overseas, tears us down, and sounds more like he's running for the President of the U.N. rather than America.
So, yesterday, as the much publicized "million Muslim march" fizzled into a few hundred wandering the streets, our D.C. bikers motored by the millions into our nation's capital. To remind our leaders that we honor our military and our first responders, and don't like our national values being surrendered to an "internationalism" that denies a century and a half of American exceptionalism.
Will these biker patriots finally shatter the national apathy that has plagued America for much of this new century? These bikers "showed the flag" in numbers unprecedented in modern times. Will their initiative and their courage inspire Americans to demand an end to the creeping destructive liberalism that infests our society. Will the bikers serve as a spark that ignites a new American revolution? A revolt that throws out the hundreds of politicians already so corrupted by greed and a lust for power that they are no longer capable of representing us?
Will those two million bikers inspire 30 million Americans to stand up, seek employment and show disdain for an administration that has worked mightily to bribe as many of us as they can with food stamps, welfare and unemployment checks and "free" medical for all?
Time will tell...but yesterday if felt good to be "America" again. I would be immensely pleased to see America live for the collective happiness of our nation...and not for the occasional satisfaction of Michelle Obama, who is only not shamed by America when her emperor hubby is winning elections.
