He’s an icon, representing legions of loyal Americans who have no need to think or doubt the flawless greatness of their country, but not the assholes on the other side of the aisle.

Somehow the phrase “America the Beautiful” became very popular years ago and everyone is familiar with it. I think there is a song or a poem or a commercial that uses it. Sounds nice. If you drive far enough away from urban and suburban areas you can see some lovely areas, for sure

The statue of the Headless Patriot used to have America the Beautiful engraved on its based, but it was changed a few years ago. Now it reads “America the Great.”

Isn’t that great? You betcha. We don’t even have to think about it. Just believe it.

I don’t read newspapers, magazines, books, essays, the back of cereal boxes, stuff like that. Too much work. I can get all the information I need from cable news, Facebook, Twitter and my inbox. I don’t have to think, just absorbed the correct wisdom and ignore everyone who is wrong.

I like to feel I am living up to the ideals of the Headless Patriot. I have a miniature version on the dashboard of my truck. I wanted a bobble head version but was told that wasn’t practical.
