IS YOUR AMERICA A COUNTRY, OR IS YOUR AMERICA A BUSINESS

WEBSTER'S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY, DEFINES COUNTRY AS:1. THE WHOLE LAND OR TERRITORY OF A NATION OR STATE. 2. THE PEOPLE OF A NATION OR STATE. 3. THE LAND OF A PERSON'S BIRTH OR CITIZENSHIP. 4. ONE'S OWN COUNTRY; NATIVE. NOW PAUSE FOR A MOMENT. NOW CONTEMPLATE THIS TRUTH. WHO WAS AMERICA, BEFORE YOU BECAME AMERICA?  IS YOUR AMERICA A COUNTRY OR IS YOUR AMERICA A BUSINESS?

THE HISTORY BOOKS WILL NOT TELL YOU THE WHOLE TRUTH, BUT IT WILL TELL YOU SOME.
WHEN YOU ASK YOUR GRANDMOTHERS AND YOUR GRANDFATHERS FOR THE TRUTH, SOME WHICH EMBRACE INTEGRITY AND COURAGE WITH A RELENTLESS PURSUIT FOR YOUR HAPPINESS, WILL WAVER NOT IN DEVULGING THE WHOLE TRUTH WITH THE HOPE OF YOU DISCOVERING WHO YOU ARE AND WHY YOU EXIST.

THOSE GRANDMOTHERS AND GRANDFATHERS WHO ONLY EXIST TO MAKE CERTAIN THAT YOU CAN BE A MAN WITHOUT SHEDDING TEARS AND WORK VERY HARD TO ATTAIN STUFF SO THAT YOU WILL BE A GOOD HUSBAND AND A GOOD WIFE, WITHOUT YOU EVER REALIZING THAT YOUR WHOLE LIFE WAS UNDERLINE BY HISTORICAL SECRETS AND STRIFE.

IS YOUR AMERICA A COUNTRY? OR IS YOUR AMERICA A BUSINESS?  WEBSTER EXPLAINED THAT A BUSINESS: ONE'S WORK, OCCUPATION, OR PROFESSION; A SPECIAL TASK, DUTY, OR FUNCTION; RIGHTFUL CONCERN OR RESPONSIBILITY(NO ONE'S BUSINESS BUT HIS OWN); THE BUYING AND SELLING OF COMMODITIES AND SERVICES, COMMERCE, AND TRADE.
NOT THE SELLING OF JUDGESHIPS, SENATE-SEATS, LAW ENFORCEMENT BADGES AND POSITIONS, CHILDREN, WOMEN, YOUR NEIGHBOR'S TRUST, YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS GIFTS AND TALENTS FOR TEMPORARY-FORTUNE-FAME, THEN LATER YOU BUY THEMTHE MONOPOLY GAME. PART 1
