America Isn’t Quebec, Mexico Or Brazil — And That’s Worth Celebrating

Daniel Oliver, Daily Caller

When does the America that came into being on July 4, 1776, cease being that America? Given all that’s happened, what are we to celebrate this Fourth of July? In his book, “Who Are We?” Samuel P. Huntington provides one answer: “Would America be the America it is today if in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries it had been settled not by British Protestants but by French, Spanish, or Portuguese Catholics? The answer is no. It would not be America; it would be Quebec, Mexico, or Brazil.” There’s one thing to celebrate: We’re not Quebeckers, Mexicans, or Brazilians. What is our nationality? American, if we can keep it.
