“I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man." Thomas Jefferson
A review of today’s readers reveals that, in addition to the United States, American Ranger has multiple visitors from each of several countries including Germany, France, Bulgaria, China, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Sweden, Armenia, Ukraine, and Japan. These are a few of the reasons I added the Google translation feature (located in the upper left corner of the Home Page).
I know that the military aspects of American Ranger attracted many viewers from other countries in the past, especially when I posted on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now that I am an old retired soldier (and cop), I spend more time discussing freedom, the American Constitution with its Bill of Rights, and the threats facing Americans as they try to safeguard their liberty. There are many of us who have fought to defend our nation – and other nations – from those who would impose dictatorship, slavery, and despair. My oath to defend America from all enemies, both foreign and domestic, did not end when I retired.
Looking at the list of countries just from today, I see many that have experienced tyranny first hand. I also see many whose citizens have fought valiantly to defeat dictators, brutal armies, and government oppression. I am honored that you have visited this site.
As our international visitors watch what is going on in America, I hope they will silently pray for the success of the Tea Party/liberty movement. Many of our friends in other nations don’t have the right to bear arms, don’t have all the freedoms that Americans take for granted, and don’t have the ability to speak out in favor of freedom and democracy. Our ancestors sacrificed greatly for our liberty; we will not permit their sacrifices to be in vain.
Americans are aware that our nation has been a shining beacon of liberty and a refuge of hope for many throughout the world for multiple generations. Rest assured that the real America flows like a mighty river beneath the false surface of Barack Obama’s America. He may have been re-elected by a slim majority in the last election, but there are tens of millions of Americans who do not believe that the socialist vision of our president and his followers represents the best future for America.
So, my international friends, stay tuned as dedicated, freedom-loving Americans speak in defense of our Constitution, our Bill of Rights, our liberty, and for the soul of our beloved country. Know also that we support the efforts of those like us throughout the world who love freedom as much as we do.
May God grant all of us the strength to forever defend the rights He has given us....
