Charlie Daniels wrote that the “American dream is still alive” and argued that “when our nation is threatened, there is an indomitable love of country in almost everyone.”
“After over eight decades of living, working, traveling and experiencing my nation’s mood swings, mistakes, and unfortunately, the division encouraged by self-serving politicians and radical organizations on the fringes of both the right and the left, that patriotism and love for America burns as brightly as ever,” the legendary country singer wrote in a Fox News op-ed.
“Even with our warts and blemishes, our deep, passionate, political differences, our petty prejudices and our disagreements about how to solve domestic and international problems, deep down, when our nation is threatened, there is an indomitable love of country in almost everyone,” he added. “I believe that the American Dream is still alive.”
“I live it every day, in a nation where opportunity abounds for those with the guts and tenacity to pursue it, where our leaders are chosen by votes, not guns, and you’re free to pursue your dream, no matter where it may lead,” he continued. “No other nation in the world can rival our diverse population, our monolithic beauty, our will to win.”
“America the free, America the beautiful, America my home,” Daniels wrote. “God bless America, stand beside her and guide her.”
