Welcome into the Bunker.
I am an American-American. Like all Americans, I have ancient ancestors from places beyond the borders of the United States of America. They came here seeking a better place and life for themselves and their descendants. They found it, built it and left it to us to preserve. I honor my Scotts-Irish ancestors who migrated to the hills of West Virginia to mine the coal that still powers our country. I honor them by trying to preserve what they gave me and what is good about America and not by dredging up fictional ties to a land I have never set a foot upon or embracing a culture that is wholly foreign to America. Therefore, I reject hyphenated Americanism and multiculturalism. I believe in the words that grace our national seal, E Pluribus Unum, out of many, one and our motto, In God We Trust. Hyphenated Americanism upends those thoughts by making us instead from one, many. There is a distinct American culture. It is what made America great and its foundation is God-given freedom, life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and small non-intrusive government. As one people one culture, we stand strong and offer the best hope for the world. As many, self-interested entities we fail. We lose what our ancestors sacrificed to provide for us.
