Thank You For Our Families Faith and Freedom

Pay close attention, and you will hear the crumbling sound of the fraudsters, liars, and cheats falling from their high horse as truth takes the lead in our national discourse. There is more to do before realizing victory in the fight to protect our God-given rights and all that is good about our country and her people. And, we, at America’s Future, stand side-by-side with We The People to see us through to the finish line. So, this Thanksgiving, we share some reflections and celebrate all we are thankful for.

Nature is good, and we’re thankful for the beauty of our country from the Atlantic to the Pacific Oceans. It’s good to rise early on a spring morning in eastern Tennessee and see the glorious Smoky Mountains in the rising mist. It’s good to walk at night along the Brooklyn Bridge spanning the great East River, once traversed by our forefathers keen to build a nation. It’s good to drive a team of horses through a Great Plains snowfall, and it’s good to hike through the tall forests of California.

Family is good, and we’re grateful for the time we spend with loved ones and the food we share. It’s good to teach our children respect and discipline and good to be reminded we, too, are always learning. Community is good, and we take joy knowing we live among good people who share in the work of making our neighborhoods better and stronger and come to our aid in times of trouble.

God is good, and we thank Him for our blessings daily. Sometimes, in quiet contemplation, we are overwhelmed with amazed gratitude for all we’ve been given — not least of which is the privilege of being an American.

Sometimes, we even ask ourselves if we deserve it. Have we earned it? The founders fought for it and handed it down to us through generations. Did we fight for it, are we fighting for it now? Have we kept our promise to each other, to our families and children, to fight to preserve our liberties and the rights enumerated in the Constitution? Have we done our share to protect what’s good about America, what we’re grateful for?

On this Thanksgiving Day, we join together, patriots united, to recommit our efforts to fight for what’s true and beautiful and natural. We’ll continue to call out the corruption of our ruling class. There will be no rest for them when decent, hard-working Americans are strengthened by the grace of God, love for our family, and the freedom we cherish.  Yes, we are grateful for this day of thanks…and every day.

Please participate in our Reader’s Survey. Your insights and thoughts are important as we learn what is on the minds and in the hearts of our fellow Americans. We read them all and share some of them Mondays at 9 a.m. during America’s Future live broadcasts with our Executive Director Mary O’Neill on America’s Mondays With Mary. Thank You!

America Patriots - John Rich

John Rich is a country music legend. Born in Amarillo, TX in 1974, Rich is an outspoken American patriot who’s not afraid to speak his mind – and put it to music. “Stick your progress where the sun don’t shine/ keep your big mess away from me and mine,” he sings in his 2022 hit “Progress.” “If you leave us alone we’d all be just fine/ stick your progress where the sun don’t shine.”

With the country music industry falling under the spell of “woke,” like many American institutions these days, he chose to launch “Progress” on America’s two most important free-speech platforms, Truth Social and Rumble — which made it the most downloaded song in the nation.

We spoke with John recently to get his insight on what ails our great country, what will heal it, and what he’s most grateful for this Thanksgiving.

Why do you think your music strikes such a deep chord in so many Americans?

The music I write and record these days is nothing fancy, there’s no trick to it. It’s just straight-ahead truth about the current state of affairs in our country. I try to write as simply as I can, and sing lyrics that people can identify with and hold onto. The truth is always a hit with people who are constantly lied to.

Lots of people see your great hit “Progress” as a protest song; are you writing more music that takes on our current political and cultural circumstances?

“Progress” is a song that calls out the hypocrisy of progressives, who by their policies have destroyed much of our nation. What they consider progressive, I consider regressive. The song just puts a simple yet fine point on the subject and relays my personal feelings about the situation. They can “stick it where the sun don’t shine” as the song says.

In your tours and other travels across our great country, what are Americans most worried about? And what are they happiest about?

Americans that I meet on the road are extremely disturbed about not knowing who has infiltrated our country. They look at America as a nation in distress and in harm’s way. People have their teeth gritted just waiting for something awful to happen due to the campaign of lies they’ve been fed from both parties for such a long time. They know that they don’t know the real story, and that has everyone on edge.

What are you most thankful for this Thanksgiving?

I’m thankful that the Lord has allowed my health to remain constant, and that He blesses my endeavors. What I’m most thankful for is that He has allowed me to have a family that I love more than life itself. Family is everything to me.

What is your prayer for America?

My prayer for America is that it will repent of its wickedness and turn back to God.
