But it also includes passages praising the American Revolution and the Founding Fathers.  Both are worth remembering.

A New American

From Guns.com:

It is America’s value of Freedom with a capital “F” that excites me the most, though. There isn’t another country on earth where a bunch of like-minded people gather with a few hundred guns, tanks and cannons, and lots of ammo, to light up the hillside with tracers, fireworks, and explosives. God Bless America! I can’t wait to be a part of it!

Why I Became An American

From The Federalist:

It was the fulfillment of a decades-long dream and is, so far, my happiest memory apart from my wedding day. But if you listen to the corporate media or watch the majority of entertainment produced today, my decision to leave Canada to become an American makes no sense. According to America’s foes, I should have stayed in a country that leftists threaten to emigrate to whenever a Republican wins the White House.
