We rarely get a chance to see another country’s editorial about the USA.
Freedom is the rock our country is founded on. The right to free
association is the essential freedom that Governor Walker assailed
for our public hero’s. A quote once heard in my history class rings
through my mind. Please bear this in mind with coming recalls and
Walker’s illegal closure of the Wisconsin State Capitol.

that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary
safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

civil citizens of my fair State of WI are being sold snake oil
rememdies to cover the facist power grab of the (Sham) Republicians.
True republicans fought slavery. Abe Lincoln once dove out a senate
window to stop an unjust vote.

this excerpt from a Romanian Newspaper. The article was written by
Mr. Cornel Nistorescu and published under the title ‘C’ntarea
Americii, meaning ‘Ode To America ‘) in the Romanian newspaper
Evenimentulzilei ‘The Daily Event’ or ‘News of the Day‘.

An Ode to America ~

Why are Americans so united?
They would not resemble one another even if you painted them all one
color! They speak all the languages of the world and form an
astonishing mixture of civilizations and religious beliefs.

9/11, the American tragedy turned three hundred million people into a
hand put on the heart. Nobody rushed to accuse the White House, the
Army, or the Secret Service that they are only a bunch of losers.
Nobody rushed to empty their bank accounts. Nobody rushed out onto
the streets nearby to gape about.

Instead the Americans
volunteered to donate blood and to give a helping hand.

the first moments of panic , they raised their flag over the smoking
ruins, putting on T-shirts, caps and ties in the colors of the
national flag. They placed flags on buildings and cars as if in every
place and on every car a government official or the president was
passing. On every occasion, they started singing: ‘God Bless America

I watched the live broadcast and rerun after rerun for
hours listening to the story of the guy who went down one hundred
floors with a woman in a wheelchair without knowing who she was, or
of the Californian hockey player, who gave his life fighting with the
terrorists and prevented the plane from hitting a target that could
have killed other hundreds or thousands of people.

How on
earth were they able to respond united as one human being?
Imperceptibly, with every word and musical note, the memory of some
turned into a modern myth of tragic heroes. And with every phone
call, millions and millions of dollars were put into collection aimed
at rewarding not a man or a family, but a spirit, which no money can
buy. What on earth unites the Americans in such way? Their land?
Their history? Their economic Power? Money? I tried for hours to find
an answer, humming songs and murmuring phrases with the risk of
sounding commonplace, I thought things over, I reached but only one
conclusion… Only freedom can work such miracles.


took a person on the outside – looking in – to see what we take for
