Justin American

 “Citizens by birth or choice of a common country, that country has a right to concentrate your affections. The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of Patriotism, more than any appellation (name) derived from local discriminations.” 

-George Washington.

I am Justin American, and with the ABCs of being just an American, I hope to recall the Founding Fathers original intent of what it means to be “just an American.” Being an American has nothing to do with race or gender and everything to do with knowing and supporting a set of “American core values” that represent the essential elements of American citizenship. Explore with me the ABCs of being just an American and become better educated on the core values of “Team America.”
Justin American,” aka Colonel (USAF retired) Richard Tatem, spent 30 years in the United States Air Force, sworn to “support and defend the US Constitution.” But it wasn’t until about 25 years of service that Justin really tried to understand what those words “support and defend” really meant. With degrees in political science and the humanities, Justin embarked on an intellectual journey that led him back to thousands of original documents written by the American Founding Fathers. From that research, Justin wrote the book Interviews With The Founders – the way America is now and the way America is supposed to be, and he realized that America has strayed very far – too far – from the way the Founding Fathers meant the country to be. Now, Justin is dedicated to educating himself and his fellow Americans citizens on what it really means to be “just an American.”
