The Founding Fathers left us the legacy of a robust and prosperous nation; a model for the entire world. Despite the will of its many foreign and domestic enemies, the U.S. remains the freest country on earth.
The Declaration of Independence was signed 245 years ago. As the legacy of Thomas Jefferson, it serves as the scaffolding of what makes this country great, from Seattle to Miami, Augusta to San Diego, or the Rio Grande to Lake Michigan. This is a nation upon which millions of us, over the course of the past two centuries, have built homes, businesses and families.
No matter what those who are ashamed to be Americans say. No matter what those who hate America say. This is the time to reclaim our symbols and recognize this county as an unparalleled Republic in which we are all privileged to live.
As an organization geared towards Hispanics, El American looks to America as a sanctuary of freedom. It is an oasis that many of us had the privilege to be born in or found amongst the rising Socialism across the region. We are not only honored to live and work in this country, but we are proud to defend its values and what makes it great. We will forever defend the right to prosper and pursue happiness. We defend it now and will continue to do so, as we know that if America falls, there is no other place like it.
Moral relativism, postmodernism, and Marxist ideals endanger this beacon of hope. It is because we believe in America, whose greatness was recognized by Tocqueville and of which Jefferson said that “nothing in Europe can counterbalance the freedom, simplicity, friendship and domestic felicity we enjoy here,” that we are compelled to vigorously defend it.
“The last hope of human liberty in this world rests on us,” Jefferson once said.
This is why El American was born.
May you have a happy and free 4th of July!
