Happy 4th of July! Welcome to a special edition of the No Spin News. Today’s show talks about America as it stands on July 4th, 2018. Bill received a letter from Marilyn Cleveland in Arroyo Grande, California which prompted today’s monologue. 

Here is the letter, "Bill, is there any hope for America, morals are in the toilet. You say that we will never gain what we have lost. Thinking of just giving it all up and reading fiction, we can only take so much hate and hopelessness." 

Bill says, not to give up, but we, as a nation, are in a down cycle in America, a social civil war. How did we end up in this place? 

The civil war in the 1850s, that's where it really started, there was a huge division in the country. You had the people who said, look you can't be holding human beings in bondage, selling them, breaking their families up, making them work six days a week for 12 hours a day in the hot sun, you can't be doing that. It's inhumane, it's unchristian. Those were the abolitionists and then you had the people in the south who benefited economically from the slave labor. People in the south convinced themselves that African Americans weren't entitled to the same rights or the same humanity as White people. 

So now we're in the year 2018 and we don't have that kind of violent strife in America, but we do have a social civil war. On one side are traditional Americans, like Bill. 

Bill says he doesn’t care what party you're in, as long as you can solve the problem(s) at hand. But, as a historian, and somebody who has written eight books on history and how it pertains to the world in the USA, Bill knows the reason that the United States of America is the most powerful nation the world has ever seen and it is because of our traditions of: justice, fairness, capitalism and freedom. 

The freedom to pursue happiness is what built the foundation of the success of American and that's why millions of people all over the world want to come here, particularly poor people that don't have a chance in Honduras or Guatemala or Nicaragua or El Salvador. 

Now, Native Americans, African-Americans and other minorities are not always treated well. That is a fact, no rationalization can change it. But in its heart separating it from bad managers, bad human beings, in its heart, the United States is a noble nation. The United States has made mistakes, we've tried to correct those mistakes and it is ongoing. We have a situation and it needs to be corrected in a way that improves the country. So that's a traditional point of view, that is Bill’s and most likely you’re perspective as well. 

Opposed to that traditional point of view is the “dark left,” that's the industry behind the far left, who say the United States is rotten and has always been that way. The far left is up against the traditional American. That's the fight. Now, will Bill’s point of view ever convince George Soros or Bernie Sanders or the New York Times? Never. While Bill understands their point of view it’s destructive and tearing down the country. 

It’s 2018 and we’ve got a polarizing person like President Trump in the Oval Office, his challengers are insane. Hillary Clinton wasn't insane, but she was incipit. If she had been elected, if she had been president, we'd be well on our way to that socialistic system because she doesn't care, she just wants power. 

Finally, Bill makes the point that he loves our country. Don’t give up on the United States. If you become a BillOReilly.com Premium Member you're in the right place. Talk to your friends about what is going on in this country. If it’s not in a belligerent way everybody should listen. Have a few cocktails and discuss the state of our country. Write letters to local papers, get involved, help people politically who you think are delivering a message you like. Because the majority of the American people, including the immigrants, can be persuaded into taking our country back!
