The Unapologetically American State of the Union

We’re back!

But are we better than ever? Well, we will have to let you decide that for yourselves.

So to help persuade you into making that decision, it’s important to just give a rundown on the current state of things from a UA perspective so that you get an idea of what to expect from here forward.

During the Unapologetically American sabbatical, I had a lot of time to reflect on what it means to be an American, what this country is, and wh….

Oh hell, who am I kidding—I didn’t really do that. I turned off the news for a while, and when I came back, pretty much everything stupid in our country was still stupid, but turned up to a higher volume. Politicians are still being ridiculous, colleges and public schools are still failing at that whole “education” thing, and Venezuela is still poor.

No, I mean like really poor. Did you know that World of Warcraft money is now worth more than Venezuelan money?

True story. And let’s not forget that a certain presidential candidate was a huge fan of what they were doing there.

Yeah, remember that guy? The one a whole bunch of college students said they really wanted to be the Democratic nominee?

He’s still a senator. In our government.

And therein lies the problem we here at Unapologetically American are trying to confront. We don’t just have people in power advocating for disastrous policies that end up with people eating their own dogs—we also have a substantial number of people who want to vote them into positions of more power.

Consider the recent upsurge in popularity of one Maxine Waters (D-CA). Regardless of your political affiliation and leanings, the fact that this woman now has a following—immediately after what happened to Hillary Clinton—is a clear demonstration of how very little people actually understand what is wrong with our current state of affairs.

More importantly, it shows a profound lack of rational thought regarding how to fix it.

That, as I see it, is where Unapologetically American steps in.

We are not a website designed to have all the answers or even an all-encompassing ideology that lays out a system of thought from top to bottom. That would require a few people who were all 100% on the same page.

The Unapologetically American crew members are not entirely on the same page because we recognize that Americans can’t all be on the same page. To assume otherwise is silly and part of what we argue against—homogenous thought patters are boring.

No, we don’t claim to have all the answers so much as we want to point out when something is obviously not the answer, how to recognize it as being wrong, and use common sense and the basics of American history as a demonstrative tool.

In short, when we see nonsense, we point it out for what it is.

That’s what Unapologetically American is all about.

Just like when the Founders called out the British for implementing rules and regulations that infringed on the natural order of things, we intend to do the same. Whether it’s a left- or right-wing call to conjure Constitutional authority where there previously was none, we plan to be there to point it out.

You’re not going to agree with everything written here. In fact, I wouldn’t be doing my job properly as editor if you did.

Our goal is not to get you to agree with us so much as it is to make you think and to have a little fun doing it. After all, take a look at the political landscape in today’s America—how could we not laugh about a lot of this?

Congressman going back on promises that got them elected, a media that has lost its mind over non-stories while ignoring huge ones, a President who fires people like it’s a sport—oh yeah, we’re going to have a good time with this.

America may be in a tight spot, politically, but that doesn’t mean its people are. We still believe our country to have the best and brightest, and strongly believe they shouldn’t be held back from showing it.

That’s why we’re here and plan on giving a voice to you, the Unapologetically American, on all of it.

Now join us as we push forward and punch Communism in the face!
