The Arizona senator said “we live in a land made of ideals, not blood and soil” and said Americans “are the custodians of those ideals at home, and their champion abroad.” – The Hill

Correction, Senator John McCain: Our great nation was based on Biblical principles. The 1,196,554 military personnel who died in defense of our nation shed 1,495,692 gallons, paid the price of our freedoms.

Nationalism defined: devotion and loyalty to one’s own nation; patriotism

It was former Vice President Joe Biden who presented the National Constitution Center’s Liberty Medal to Senator McCain. How significant is this award? Previous recipients include the Dalai Lama, Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), former Democratic presidential nominee what-does-it-matter-now Hillary Clinton and Pakistani human rights activist Malala Yousafzai.

Yes, John McCain, a new spirit of nationalism arises throughout the land and for this I thank God. It’s not spurious and yes, it is half-baked, but I can smell the finished product that’s coming out of the oven.
