Has anyone ever wondered why so many major inventions and technological advancements occurred in America rather than other countries. America has been around for just a little over 200 years. So many other countries have been here for thousands and thousands of years. And why has technology and infrastructure advanced so far so fast? Could it have something to do with the American dream that we all talk about? I mean, come on now, maybe there is really something to it. Maybe if people are given the opportunity to try anything, then that gets their creative juices flowing. At least that’s what I believe. If you look back in our short history, we can see so many inventions from electricity to the light bulb, from the automobile to the airplane… to the cotton gin, telephone, robots, lasers, personal computers… and it seems like fucking everything. Hell, we even invented social media. America is tops for bringing ideas to market. It is because of who we are, our culture, and most importantly, our freedom. I think now more than ever, people really need to hear that.
For those of you who think our government is a complete failure, look at the facts. Our government, although not perfect, found a way to let visionaries be visionaries. They allowed them to develop their ideas and be heard. Again, I am not saying our government is perfect. I’m just saying our government seems to be under a TON of scrutiny, but let’s look at the positives. The way our country is established has given the world all these great inventions and advancements. You’re Welcome! Other empires/countries had thousands of years to move from horses and carriages to something else. But it took Henry Ford in the good ole USA to make it happen. Now remember I’m not saying America is perfect, but we are trying. America always tries.
God knows this country has and will have a ton of problems now and in the future. The best part about this country is that we at least try to attack the tough problems. Sometimes the tough problems don’t have quick answers, but they do need to be acknowledged and worked on.
So, let’s not get hysterical and complain about all the problems we have in this country (which are a lot). It is time for this country to take ownership and do what this country always seems to do. We always move forward. We move forward socially, scientifically, technologically, and, hell, even spiritually if you’re into that. God bless the choice America gave its citizens. We can choose to be visionaries or not. Either way America can and will move forward.
