Music Monday-Josh Thompson "Way Out Here"

Teddy Roosevelt said that “Americanism means the virtues of courage, honor, justice, truth, sincerity, and hardihood—the virtues that made America."   This quote is shown with a tattered American flag at the beginning of this video of Josh Thompson's "Way Out Here."

Roosevelt goes on in that quote to add, "The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living and the get-rich-quick theory of life.”  It is important to consider both halves of the quote, because if we don't have the first half, we may be destined to chase after the second.

The first and last lines of this song are "Our houses are protected by the Good Lord and a gun.  You might meet 'em both if you show up here not welcome, son."  This song promotes the values described by Teddy Roosevelt.  It also promotes the lifestyle of those our President described as "clinging to guns and religion."  Both work for me.
