Why I still believe in America

Beyond the ridiculousness of social issues, presidential nitpicking, and partisanship, there are people like Mark Daily that inspire us to be better people and live to make the world a better place.

Honestly, I just could not see a person like him emerging from France, China, India, Russia, or any other country. It is a uniquely American personality.

Sure every country has its heroes.

But to be selfless and sacrificing, while ALSO rigorously challenging the moral basis for the sacrifice, requires a type of culture that values individual liberty over all other directives.
