What is America?

Freedom isn't free.

The Freedom Brothers respectfully ask all Americans to remember what America means on this most solemn of holidays: July 4th; the anniversary of Our Independence. Let The Grizz share with you what America is to him.

America is a Ford Expedition, barreling down the desert highway at sixty-five miles per hour.

America is the look on The Terrorist’s face as he stares up at the scorching Cuban sun from his 5’ x 5’ barbed wire and cement prison cell, beseeching his god to set him free.

America is the point where the marshmallow and chocolate melt together over your graham cracker.

America is a New York City Firefighter. 9/11. Never forget.

America is Brett Favre, Jeff Foxworthy and Pat Tillman. Babe Ruth, Charlie Chaplan, and Scott Beamer. Dale Earnhardt, George Patton, George Bush.

America is the grizzled factory worker, pulling a double down at the plant.

America is a blood-drenched Marine raising Old Glory over a Pacific black-sand isle.

America is a cold beer on a hot afternoon.

America is your friends.

Your family.


We love this country for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain, for purple mountains majesty above the all the fruited plains.

We love this country for the plentiful resources, the clean rivers, the deserts and the open seas.

We love this country for the football, the good cars, the Christianity, the beef.

Barack Hussein Obama stood in front of his “church” and yelled “God damn America!”

You know what the Freedom Brothers say? Not "God damn America."

God bless America.

God bless this country.
